Cover shot – REVOCATION

Progressive death metal outfit Revocation have dropped ‘Diabolical Majesty‘ the first single from their upcoming eighth full-length studio album, Netherheaven.


Diabolical Majesty is accompanied by an energetic video shot inside the iconic Sk8 Liborius Church and showcases the band’s technical abilities, with a special mention of lead vocalist / Guitarist Dave Davidson for his colour-coordinated shirt > guitar > Nike Pollen AJ1s.

It’s always hard choosing the first single off of a new album, but we felt that ‘Diabolical Majesty’ really captures the mood of ‘Netherheaven’ overall. It’s a thrashing, death metal ripper that’s got a little something for everyone, whether you’re the first one to activate a circle pit at a show or if you just like to bang your fucking head. The music video was filmed by our good friends Dave Brodsky and Allison Woest, and they’ve once again outdone themselves on this one! Special thanks to the Sk8 Liborius crew for letting us rage in their space for a couple days.
Lyrically, ‘Diabolical Majesty’ was inspired by the Satanic Temple’s ongoing struggle with the religious right and their battle to display the statue of the Baphomet in the face of censorship and legal action. To quote American author Chris Hedges, ‘The merger of the corporatists with the Christian right is the marrying of Godzilla to Frankenstein.’ These words ring even truer now that extremist Christian politicians have begun imposing their authoritarian rule as they seek to completely undo the separation of church and state.” – Dave Davidson
