Revocation have announced their new album, Netherheaven, is scheduled to arrive on September 9th via Metal Blade Records. To celebrate the reveal, these progressive death metal giants have unleashed a David Brodsky-directed video for the song “Diabolical Majesty.”


Frontman Dave Davidson comments: 

“It’s always hard choosing the first single off of a new album, but we felt that ‘Diabolical Majesty’ really captures the mood of ‘Netherheaven’ overall. It’s a thrashing, death metal ripper that’s got a little something for everyone, whether you’re the first one to activate a circle pit at a show or if you just like to bang your fucking head. The music video was filmed by our good friends Dave Brodsky and Allison Woest, and they’ve once again outdone themselves on this one! Special thanks to the Sk8 Liborius crew for letting us rage in their space for a couple days. 

Lyrically, ‘Diabolical Majesty’ was inspired by the Satanic Temple’s ongoing struggle with the religious right and their battle to display the statue of the Baphomet in the face of censorship and legal action. To quote American author Chris Hedges, ‘The merger of the corporatists with the Christian right is the marrying of Godzilla to Frankenstein.’ These words ring even truer now that extremist Christian politicians have begun imposing their authoritarian rule as they seek to completely undo the separation of church and state.”


Bassist Brett Bamberger adds

“Filming for ‘Diabolical Majesty’ hyped me up on every level! You can’t beat ripping a video with the crew WHILE having a session and several Busch Waters. Skating at Liborius reminded me of my first time checking out SPOT & Asbury Park when I was a kid. I don’t think I’ve even seen a vert ramp since those days since I’ve always been a tech dawg! It was really special to be able to combine all my beloved passions in the sesh & hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!”


Revocation will be hitting the road to celebrate the album. The band has announced a North American headlining tour with support from Krisiun, Alluvial, and Inoculation. The trek is scheduled to kick off on September 9th in Toronto, ON and will run through October 16th in Pittsburgh, PA. 


Davidson expresses his excitement: 

“We cannot wait to play a bunch of new songs on our first headlining tour back since the pandemic. We’ll be joined alongside the Brazilian berserkers in Krisiun, progressive death metal wizards Alluvial and newcomers Inoculation who combine an OSDM aesthetic with a more modern, technical approach. Don’t miss the killer lineup, come out and circle pit for Satan!”
