REVOCATION continues to tour in support of their latest full-length, The Outer Ones, released last September via Metal Blade Records. Produced by Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Queensrÿche, Whitechapel, etc.), The Outer Ones finds REVOCATION pushing both the death metal and progressive elements of their signature sound harder than ever. “I knew that I wanted to go in a darker direction, and this is our most death metal album to date,” states vocalist/guitarist Dave Davidson. “Sometimes when death metal bands go down the prog route, they lose some of that edge, but we wanted to keep the aggression at the forefront of what we do while still pushing our boundaries.”

About Pale Mare
Pale Mare is a Toronto-based heavy metal band, born out of the desire to play music that is loud, aggressive, and full of thick groovy riffs.  The band released their self-titled EP in November of 2017 through Medusa Crush Records and was met with high praise from the likes of Metal Hammer, Exclaim!, and many more.

Having provided local support for Eyehategod, Corrosion of Conformity, Windhand, Satans Satyres, Weedeater, Serial Hawk, Black Wizard, King Buffalo, Set and Setting and Perturbator, Pale Mare have established themselves in their home town of Toronto as a massive force to be reckoned with, and have attracted a loyal fan base through relentlessly crushing live performances. Their sound has been likened to early Baroness, High On Fire, Mastodon, and Black Tusk; full of fire, attitude, brimstone, tone, and soul.

Praise for Pale Mare
“Sounding like Motorhead developing a penchant for doom, this self-titled EP is raw, heavy and filthy in the best possible way.” — Metal Hammer

“You guys are bad, man. Baaad” – Pepper Keenan (C.O.C.)

About:

Featured in publications such as Metal Hammer and Billboard, Metalocalypstick Fest not only celebrates women in metal but also gives back to the community. Formed in 2016 as a non-profit organization, they are dedicated to raising funds and donating 100% of proceeds to local charities Girls Rock Camp, Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter, and Earth Protectors plus they sponsor an independent band picked by Metalocalypstick Fest judges.

The festival was founded by Kaija Kinney of Vancouver’s Anarcheon after researching a lack of female based metal festivals to apply her band to, Kinney took matters into in her own and decided to produce the event.

“This festival means the celebration of both sexes coming together and creating something amazing. People like to say women in metal aren’t a big deal anymore and that we are all the same. I feel that is untrue, this is still a male dominated world and woman are still looked as lesser. I want to showcase all these bad ass ladies and celebrate the differences of men and woman rather than pretend we are all equal. Truth is we are different why can’t we celebrate that?” says Kinney.
