|The band was formed in the summer of 2000 in Boston, MA udder the name Cryptic Warning. It is an old-school thrash metal band with a love for brutal, technical death metal.
2005 marked the release of Cryptic Warning's debut full-length CD 'Sanity's Aberration'. Combining shredding solos, lightning-fast riffs and unrelenting intensity, 'Sanity's Aberration' is the best representation of what Cryptic Warning was all about.
In June of 2006, the Cryptic Warning changed its name to Revocation.
Revocation draws from the best aspects of the metal world on their Relapse debut Existence Is Futile. The trio blends world class musicianship with a pronounced technical flair; songs twist, turn, and stop on dime as dizzying solos dance with thrash metals razor-sharp precision to create an album greater than the sum of its parts. Existence is Futile transcends all of modern metal's sub-genres and labels and firmly establishes Revocation as one of the finest new metal bands of the 21st century.
