Revocation is an American technical death metal/thrash metal band. Characterized by their [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly highly eclectic]] sound that combines elements of countless metal and non-metal genres, as well as frontman David Davidson's unique, versatile guitar style, Revocation has made a tremendous rise in a short period of time, having netted a lucrative contract with heavyweight metal label Relapse Records, as well as embarking on numerous high-profile tours, and it doesn't look as if they're going to stop any time soon.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Great Is Our Sin'' featured slightly more frequent clean vocals and did away with whatever little thrash the last two albums had left.

* NoExportForYou: Their cover of Exhorder's "Death in Vain", which was a Japanese bonus track on ''Existence'', as well as their cover of "[[Music/{{Metallica}} Dyers Eve]]" on the self-titled, but that is slightly subverted insofar as the Japanese version of the self-titled was also offered in the US in very limited quantities as a preorder.
* OldShame: Their Cryptic Warning days, to some degree; they're not too happy with them, but it's less about the music itself and more about the naivety and lack of foresight they displayed, culminating in the less-than-stellar production job of their full-length that was due to their picking the first producer that they found regardless of his actual experience with metal.



* PromotedFanboy: Dan.



* WriteWhatYouKnow: "A Debt Owed to the Grave" was inspired by the time that Dave spent working in the morgue of a hospital, as his job largely entailed moving bodies down to the basement. At face value, it's about leaving payment for Charon, but it's also just as much about his realization that he essentially was a ferryman for the dead.
