Revocation Bring Metal Dynamism to BC’s Armstrong Metal Festival

Monday 10th, July 2017 / 13:17
By Brayden Turenne

VANCOUVER – This year’s Armstrong music festival is set to let loose a plethora of diverse bands bursting up from the underground. Crowning off the whole fest is Boston’s Revocation, a band that has risen in popularity at a pace almost as furious as the music they produce. With a sound that dabbles in various streams of musical influence, both metal and otherwise, the band has found a way to execute a dynamism and variety in their songs tends to defy any particular sub genre within the scene.

“I think there’s always room to expand our sound, that being said I think it’s important to work with certain parameters to keep a specific aesthetic,” notes band founder and frontman, Dave Davidson. Despite the multifaceted nature of their sound, each and every track across the band’s six album discography is undoubtedly Revocation.

The band’s latest offering, Great Is Our Sin, reaches higher in both quality and concept, with lyrical themes examining the doomed nature of man, which, especially in this modern era, is more relevant than ever.

“The world around me definitely influences my lyrics, but I also like to look back at history to gain inspiration,” Davidson claims. “There are a lot of themes that seem to repeat themselves over and over again which is interesting because I think it says a lot about humanity. Even as technology advances, we still cling to old ways of thinking and repeat similar mistakes. That notion was a driving force behind the lyrics.”

Davidson’s lyrics have always had a wide spectrum of influence. “It could be current events, history [or] pure fiction. I draw a lot of inspiration from the works of H.P. Lovecraft because he created such a vast universe with his stories. I’ve always been a fan of sci-fi horror, even when I was just a young kid, so it’s only natural that those types of influences creep into the lyric writing process.”

Revocation have recently embraced a new drummer in Ash Pearson, former member of Vancouver legends, 3 Inches Of Blood. “Ash is able to bring his own style to the band,” said Davidson, “I think we’re playing tighter than we ever have before. We’re all really locked in and Ash is a big part of that. Drums are really the backbone of metal and he’s one of the most consistent drummers in the business, he’s killing it behind the kit every night.”

Revocation headlines Armstrong Metal Fest which takes place July 14 and 15 in Armstrong, BC.
