Revocation unleash darkened fury in video for ‘Of Unworldly Origin’



Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.

Boston metal titans Revocation are back with a new video, and if we saw this shit on Headbanger’s Ball growing up, our lives would have likely turned out very different.

The David Brodsky-directed clip is for “Of Unworldly Origin”, which serves as the first single off Revocation’s upcoming album The Outer Ones, which hits September 28 on Metal Blade Records. The Outer Ones is the follow-up to 2016’s well-received Great is Our Sin, and vocalist/guitarist Dave Davidson says the album pushes Revocation into even harsher sonic territory.


“I knew that I wanted to go in a darker direction, and this is our most death metal album to date,” Davidson says. “Sometimes when death metal bands go down the prog route they lose some of that edge, but we wanted to keep the aggression at the forefront of what we do while still pushing our boundaries.”

The new LP’s title, Davidson adds, is an ode to H.P. Lovecraft “and the entities of pure cosmic horror that rule that universe he created.” He elaborates: “Since the new music we were writing was so evil and spacey in sections it seemed to be the right title to fit the overall vibe. But while the lyrical content is largely influenced by such writings, in every allegory there is of course some reflection of the real world, so I enjoy writing in a way that could have one overlaying meaning and then another deeper, symbolic meaning as well.”

Get a taste of what’s in store below, and hang around after the video jump to scan Revocation’s fall tour, with Exhumed, Rivers Of Nihil, and Yautja, which wraps October 20 at Brighton Music Hall in Allston.
