This Is Not A Scene reviewed REVOKER‘s recent gig in Manchester with The Defiled and you can see an extract from that review below:
Camden Town high flyers The Defiled, Welsh rockers Revoker and Texans Murder FM invaded The Roadhouse in Manchester and when you hear these names, TINAS could not resist!
Murder FM made their mark on the scene not too long ago with their industrial rock influences and their energetic stage presence. Although, not familiar with their overall sound, Manchester was respectful to Murder FM and were entertained in return. No doubt gathering a few more fans along the way.
Team TINAS just simply couldn’t hold any excitement back from view when Welsh rockers Revoker were due to start. Revoker are no strangers to the scene at all. They’ve already wowed their masses and gaining more through supports in the major UK festivals along with with Sepultura and Cavalera Conspiracy, with their more recent Rob Zombie and Hammerfest performances. With their blossoming debut “Revenge For The Ruthless” and a seventeen day mammoth tour with bone crushers Chimaira in March 2012, they are set to take on the world, beginning with Manchester!
The intensive ‘Time To Die’ blew the crowd into a frenzy right from the very start of their set, thanks to bassist Shane Phillips, guitarist Chris Green, Jack Pritchard‘s crashing drumbeats and Jamie Mathias‘ unifying vocals and guitar work. Cheers and smiles were shared across the venue as Revoker stepped on the gas peddle, instigating a mosh pit that lasted for a good while.
Another mosh pit friendly assault in the form of ‘Great Pretender’ also allowed the crowd to sing along at the top of their lungs. ‘Not To Be Moved’ and the monstrous ‘Thief’ followed quickly after. The vibrations of drumbeats, screeching guitars and chants led to the headbanger ‘Stay Down’, which made the place jump with their own flavour reminiscent of Five Finger Death Punch and then gave Manchester the crowd pleaser ‘Born To Be An Outlaw’ to bring an end their awesome performance.
With their tremendous chemistry, tight musicianship and their whip cracks of metal, Revoker demonstrated to Manchester they deserve the plaudits they have been getting and deserve to be bigger than they are. All the boxes ticked lads!
