Before they embarked on this year’s Summer Slaughter tour, Boston’s Revocation recorded a video for the track “Invidious” in their home town.
The clip captures the raw energy that Revocation’s live shows have become known for, and that energy has only been ratcheted up a notch with a slate of fresh thrash tracks from the band’s recently-released self-titled album.
In addition to “Invidious,” the deluxe edition of Revocation features a cover of Metallica’s “Dyer’s Eve” as a bonus track. Check out the cover (via Revolver) here and watch Revocation in action after the jump. Continue reading →
Wes Hauch, guitarist of Los Angeles-based metallers the Faceless, has had a whirlwind 2013.
The band went on an extensive tour with Dillinger Escape Plan through the first part of the year, and when he finally came off the road, he began working on some solo recordings.
Now, as the Faceless get set to go back out on tour with Between the Buried and Me, Hauch sat down with JacksonGuitars.com to talk about all of his recent happenings.
JacksonGuitars.com: How did you get hooked up with Between the Buried and Me?
Hauch: We did a tour with them last year, we did Summer Slaughter with them. They’re just buddies of ours, and we heard of about it late last year. It’s us, BTBAM and a band called the Contortionist – they’re great – and a band from the U.K called the Safety Fire. They’re like a proggy rock band. They’re cool.
JacksonGuitars.com: When you get off a long tour do you put your guitar away and decompress?
Hauch: No, I like to play guitar, I just don’t like to play my band’s songs. You know what I mean? [laughs] I’m writing a bunch of stuff for like a solo record-type thing right now so I’m getting a bunch of stuff demoed out. I’m also giving lessons. I always like to play guitar, so it’s just cool when we have a little bit of a breakdown I can start doing other stuff. Continue reading →
