SUICIDE SILENCE + REVOCATION
Written by Cel Quintero on November 4, 2019
Suicide Silence + Revocation in Mexico City.
The sound of SUICIDE SILENCE has been compared in the media as a machine gun. They were named “Best New Talent” in the Golden Gods Revolver and dominated the Rockstar Mayhem tour festival as early as 2009. “No Time to Bleed” entered the Billboard Top 40. “Wake up” and “Lifted” became underground classics while Suicide Silence transcended the genre they helped define, becoming pairs of bands they heard in their childhood in California.
They have opened bands like Mudvayne, Lamb of God and Machine Head and have worked with producers like Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, Burial) and mixed with personalities like Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Queensryche, Hatebreed).
As it becomes clear in a more challenging way with the fifth self-titled album of Suicide Silence, the best of music, literature and all the creative arts, born of pain, born of truth, extracted from the harrowing experience of life.
Suicide Silence has announced “Become The Hunter,” his new album, for the first part of 2020 and is expected to share much of the material with the Mexican public.
REVOCATION are old acquaintances of the scene standing out with their technical death metal. Originally from Boston, Massachusetts, they founded the band in 2000 by calling Cryptic Warning. Already as Revocation, in 2006, they released four studio albums to later sign with Relapse Records. In 2012 they released the EP “Teratogenesis“, becoming pioneers in this disc format.
“The Outer Ones” (2018) is his most recent production. David Davidson says: “The title is my ode to H.P. Lovecraft and the entities of pure cosmic horror that govern that universe he created. Since the new music we were writing was so evil and spacious in sections, it seemed to be the right title for the general environment. While the lyrical content is greatly influenced by these writings, in each allegory there is, of course, some reflection of the real world, so I enjoy writing in a way that could have an overlapping meaning and then another deeper symbolic meaning. ”
All Misery, originally from Durango, Mexico, explore the sounds of death metal. In the words of the band, they prefer to call their sound “extreme music”, mixing sometimes fast and sometimes technical riffs, with a slow and hard tempo. “No matter how much we evolve, we try to keep it that way, the same essence in every release.”
Closing this event tightly presents LACK OF REMORSE Mexicans who have earned an important place in the national metal scene. In 2017 they released “The Bacon Chronicles II”, an album that incorporates interesting arrangements such as a “The Purge”, clean vocals and acoustic guitars on “We Must Let Go” and an 8-bit version of “Back in Time.”
“Embrace the Black Flame” (2012) and “The Bacon Chronicles” (2015) are his previous productions and have shared the stage with bands such as Within the Ruins, Witchcraft, Spring, Here Comes The Kraken, Knock Down the King and I Declare War, among others.
Lack of Remorse is releasing a video for “Rock is Dead”, a new single that marks the band’s return after “The Bacon Chronicles II”.
