Vancouver-based groove thrashers Revenger have announced that they will be releasing their new album The New Mythology Vol. 1 on February 17th. To offer a preview of the record, the band has released a stream for "We Want Blood" which you can check out below!
This is the band's second release now and contains five new songs that expand on the aggressive thrash metal styles of their first release. These songs are more technical and direct than Revenger's debut album To The Wolves and show a progression in the group's technical skills. Formed in 2012, Revenger are proponents of heavy guitar rhythms, punctuated by a consistent thrash pulse with gritty vocals and memorable lyrics.
Drummer Julia Geaman had this to say about the forthcoming EP: "I think the particular style that we are creating is pretty exciting. It's straight up thrash that can get catchy sometimes or more death metal other times but over all it's pretty straight forward, but that's where I find the freedom in it. We can be unpredictable and come up with two riffs that don't seem to go together at first but somehow work and then lead back into something more traditional. We play the music we grew up listening to but with our own filter on it. We don't try to sound like anyone, but our influences definitely come out. Bringing this EP to as many people as we can is something that is getting me really excited and I'm super stoked for this next year. A lot of hard work has gone into this as with any musical project and it's incredible to bring it into reality."
