If there is something perfect in this sad and lonely world is the mix of gutural vocals and melodic guitars as the guys of Revel In Flesh did here. I am fully aware that this “Relics Of The Deathkult” is a compilation of Revel In Flesh rarest efforts. But why picking up so good songs? Just kidding, guys. “Relics Of The Deathkult” is perfect.
Ok. Extreme metal is not for everyone, even heavy metallers. There are some guys that rather listen to any kind of pop garbage than listen to extreme metal bands. I strongly desagree. Extreme metal is the present, and future, of Metal. The point I would like to discuss here is that. Unfortunately most of our idols are going away. Just yesterday we posted here that Judas Priest’s Glenn Tipton will have to retire due to parkinson. A lot of Metal grim reapers predicted that the end is near. And the burning question pop up: what’s the future of Metal? Who’s going to carry it on?
I do have a tip: bands like Revel In Flesh. Of course there are metallers that prefer more melodic stuff. Well, then. Our page is full of them. My point is this guys: give new bands a chance. Songs like “Bonecrusher” are masterpieces of the dark arts. The perfect combination of an exciting drumming to a fierceful vocal. Revel In Flesh are a band that show us a lot of excitement. In their own way, of course. That is the point, one has to get used to extreme metal. It takes some, uh, training.
Guys, life is a contradiction full of contrasts. Revel In Flesh show us how to master these contrasts in music. Not an easy task, though. Aggression and melodic have to be very well dosed, that is the task to extreme metal bands. But how well can they do that? Listen carefully to this “Relics Of The Deathkult.” The answer is blowing in the wind…
“Relics Of The Deathkult” is a compilation that will be released on March 16th via War Anthem Records.
