• New Arrival - REVENGE - Behold.Total.Rejection LP
SEASON OF MIST
• LP on 140G BlackVinyl in Deluxe Spotgloss Jacket with Printed Inner Sleeve
Without compromising on their core values, aesthetics, and overall approach to writing Black Metal, Revenge shifted gears a bit on their latest offering as they integrate more accentuated, gurgled lows into the mix along with more slow, deep, grooving breaks and riffs that pulverize and grind the cesspool of society into mere dust. What’s more, each of these things are apparent not even 30 seconds into the opening track, “Scum Defection (Outsider Neutralized).”
As a result, the listener may find themselves rather stunned that this juggernaut is not only still a well-oiled machine, but perhaps churning out their best material in years. As celebrated as Scum.Collapse.Eradication was, in truth, it pales in comparison to this new offering. With a greater sense of clarity and warm intensity, the production really does allow every aspect of the relentless attack of Revenge to shine like never before, especially the drum work of J. Read. Master of the single blast, Read’s performance here is as inspired, varied, and bludgeoning as anything he’s done beforehand and that’s saying a lot.
