I haven't heard this album so I can't say how I feel about it, but this review is hilarious.

Revenge: Infiltration. Downfall. Death.
03/04/08 || Hanging Limbs
Sing to the tune of “Summer of ’69” by Bryan Adams.

I got my first real war axe
Stole it from my grandpa’s drawer
Swung it ‘til my forearms cramped
It was the summer of ‘94

Me and some guys from school
Hated christians and we formed a band
Goatfist quit, Icelord got arrested
Jesus laughed and the critics panned

Oh and when I look back now
That winter seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Corpse paint and spiked black leather
Those were the best days of my life

Ain’t no use in reforming
Record sales only help the Jew
Spent my evenings down in the forest
Because I’m kvlt and trve yeah!

Burnin’ down your mama’s church
You told me “Asatru forever!”
Oh and when I held Varg’s hand
Trollish love just can’t be severed
Those were the best days of my life
Back in the summer of ‘94

Man we were pretty mean
We were full of hatred
Our stage show was obscene
Perhaps someone will buy our demo – our demo… no?

And now the times are changin’
What’s production and musicianship?
Sometimes when I pick up my war axe
I think about you and I slice my nip

Burnin’ down your mama’s church
You told me Satan was forever
Running through the wooded land
Beating off to frosty weather
Those were the best days of my life
Back in the Summer of ’94

1/10. Possibly the worst album I’ve ever heard. These guys make Xasthur sound like J.S. Bach.

That is pretty damn funny, especially since none of it (up to and definitely including the bizarre comparison with Xasthur) has anything to do with Revenge at all!

At any rate, Revenge seems to be a 1/10 or 10/10 sort of band... everyone either loves it or hates it. Personally, I think Revenge is great, and the new album certainly lives up to their earlier albums. The songs are quite solid and memorable, especially the vocal parts -- I think the pitch-shifting and dual-vocal work gives the album a lot of its power; to me it does not hurt the atmosphere at all, quite the opposite!

I also really like the emphasis on the low-end, and it seems as if the riffs are more audible than usual. Between this and AoA's "Purify", Osmose is definitely doing something right on the production side!

That review is quite funny and fancy, haha... the content is total bullshit, of course.

I think the reviewer is trying to say "oh this is just a bunch of kult garbage that sounds bad and so is Xasthur."

Like I said, funny review but I have no opinion. I don't tend to like lots of war metal really, I tend to just pull out my one black witchery cd when I am in the mood for it....is this one something special?

This is a moot point, but I hate the term war metal. It's so post 2003...

I would agree with that estimate. He was slightly taller than me when I briefly asked him some questions at the London show for the Militant Antichrist tour.

He is quite barbaric in sound, i guess that's what threw me off. he plays drums well, definitely a good musician

I think Revenge is pretty special... I like their stuff better than Black Witchery, personally. Revenge is among the best (if not THE best) band playing this sort of metal -- most other bands aren't quite as unique and/or relentless.

If you're going to try Revenge, the latest album is probably a good place to start.

One of my favorite "genres". Fast, chaotic and hateful.
Revenge is great.

Can't believe people even really need to discuss this - of course Revenge are great. It's a fact, people. Although I've got to admit I return to Axis of Advance more often than I do Revenge.

The only band that does it better is Conqueror.

And Blasphemy of course.

I would agree with you on this. I find AoA more palatable, for want of a better word to describe it.
