The official music video will premiere today at 5pm [GMT] on Metal Blade Records' YouTube channel.


Director, Cinematography - David Brodsky for My Good Eye: Music Visuals

Songwriter/frontman Dave Davidson comments on the album: "We're definitely in more of a death metal mindset than on earlier albums in our catalog. We're focusing on how we can write the best death metal-centric album that we possibly can while still pushing our boundaries. The new songs on Netherheaven are evil and sinister but also have a progressive element to them to keep things interesting. It's got our stamp on it, no question."

Netherheaven was written and produced by Davidson and it was mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios.

Tracklist:
1. Diabolical Majesty
2. Lessons in Occult Theft
3. Nihilistic Violence
4. Strange and Eternal
5. Galleries of Morbid Artistry
6. The 9th Chasm
7. Godforsaken
8. The Intervening Abyss of Untold Aeons
9. Re-Crucified

Yup. Reminds me of when they premiered Of Unworldly Origin and then the rest of the Outer Ones turned out to be an entirely different vibe. This is ok tho

Their early material will likely always be their most exciting, but these guys still write excellent records.

Definitely by the numbers Revo [3] but par for them is excellent by the genre standard. Album should rule.

Eh, song is alright, probably one of their worst singles

Also that album art sucks, looks like some muddy shit from some no name 90s osdm band transitioning from dm to groove metal.

Surprised to see criticism of the album art. I love it and it urged me to click play. Loved their first two albums back in the day but lost touch with them around their third. I'm digging this more than most of the newer tracks I've heard tbh. Riffing is very on point. Always felt like their material would work a lot better for me with more growls and gutturals being used in the vocal department. Anyone who hasn't should go back and check their debut before they changed their name to Revocation. I wanna say they were called Cryptic Warning or something like that. Definitely Cryptic something. It's kind of crude in terms of vocals and recording but it has a lot of cool riffing going on from what I recall.

Pretty good. Best production (sonically) from the band yet. I’m a sucker for that. Cover art is good. Dunno why anyone would be complaining about that.

album art is definitely stellar. i can't name a single 90s groove metal album off the top of my head that has that type of art so pretty weird and specific criticism. reminds me of brutal death artwork more than anything else

Songs good but not amazing, that midsection rules though.
The Outer Ones didn't grab me at first but grew into one of my favourite Rev albums, have loved the heavier DM influence since Deathless. Artwork is great.

album art is sweet . weird comment about the art Bloc
Song just reminds me of every other fast paced Revo album that just changes riff once or twice for variety without lending itself to much creativity. Really odd that Dave is a graduate in music theory yet releases rather uninteresting rehashed material year after year
