Ich hätte gerne Revoker da http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LhM1kYb0Dk http://revoker.net/ Revoker nod to heavy metal’s past, while fueling the flame of its future. On its debut, the Welsh quartet fuses dangerous thrash riffs to infectious and timeless choruses, which isn’t so easy to do in the metal sphere. Songs like “Stay Down” rise with anthemic hooks, while “Psychoville” converges its path of bruising melodies and unpredictable vocals. The United Kingdom has produced some of hard rock and heavy metal’s most beloved acts, and these four lads from Wales continue that tradition. Revoker—Jamie Mathias [Vocals, Guitar], Chris Green [Lead Guitar], Shane Phillips [Bass], Jack Pritchard [Drums]—are about to invade psyches everywhere. About their sound, Green puts it best, “It’s the new old school. All of our influences are classic metal and hard rock bands, but we channel them into our own sound. Each song tells a story and has a beginning, middle, and end. That keeps things interesting.” Hints of Metallica and Machine Head pulsate at the heart of Revoker’s debut, but there’s a distinct, fresh attitude leading the charge. Revoker collectively grew up in South Wales, and Mathias and Green have been playing together since they were 13-years-old. Once the duo needed a rhythm section, schoolmates Pritchard and Phillips eventually found their way into the band’s ranks, solidifying the lineup in 2006. “We were all in the same school, and you could always find Jamie in the headmaster’s office. If I wanted to know what time practice was, I didn’t call him; I went to the principal’s office and asked,” laughs Phillips. Revoker’s first single “Stay Down” proudly brandishes that free and rebellious spirit. With its pulsating refrain and bombastic guitars, the song is a veritable fist-pumping brawler. “It’s basically about a weekend where we live,” declares Green. “You go out, have a few drinks, and get in a scuffle but it’s a good time. We’re the odd ones out in South Wales. We’ve got long hair, love heavy rock music and don’t play rugby. We’re always fighting back.” That fight resounds loud and clear on everything Revoker does. After they perfected this sharp sound and unforgettable live show, Roadrunner Records signed the band in July 2010 and immediately encouraged them to hit the studio.
