Origin:  Boston, MA

The first ten we have visited so far have been fantastic.  So, you’re in store for a treat with the remaining albums.  We enter the Top 10 of 2018 with Revocation’s new one.  Revocation is another band that has been a model of consistency since their inception.  They have perfected their trademark sound of thrash/death metal hybrid.  To me, these guys will always seem like this generation’s Megadeth.  Leader David Davidson is one of the true guitar heroes going today.  He combines a great deal of technical wizardry with some very uncanny guitar riffs that form the structures of their songs.  These aren’t your ordinary run-of-the-mill guitar riffs.  They’re creative and it leads to some really interesting directions.
