Revocation Interviews and Features
Below are our features and interviews with Revocation.
The 2013 Summer Slaughter tour wraps up in a few days, but Revocation won't be sitting still for long, trekking to Europe in September and then heading out on a tour with Death Angel this coming October.
While Revocation was on the road, the band's new self-titled album officially dropped, and I called up guitarist Dan Gargiulo to see what he had to say about the release.
A transcription of our conversation can be found below, covering the writing and recording process, working with the band's new bassist, and recording a Metallica cover.
On a chilly Saturday evening, I dropped into the cozy Silk City Taproom in Florence, Massachusetts, for a special one-off show featuring Boston's breakout underground metal stars, Revocation. They released their jaw-dropping and versatile third studio album "Chaos Of Forms" through Relapse Records earlier in 2011 to wide acclaim, and had just wrapped up an opening slot on tour with Chimaira when they decided to revisit their regional turf in a far more intimate way.
Prior to loosing a toxic river of thrash, death, speed, groove, and progressive metal on the tiny club's adoring patrons, three of Revocation's members checked in with Metalunderground.com on Silk City's outdoor second-floor smoking balcony. Huddled in a corner and speaking above the nearby din of a rowdy, liquored-up crowd, guitarist/vocalist Dave Davidson, drummer Phil Dubois-Coyne, and second guitarist Dan Gargiulo indulged me with some amusing banter.
