Finnish folk metallers Turisas invite you once again to stand up and fight with them once again. Never too long from British soil, this band have always been able to pull a crowd, and entering the venue, I can see that this was going to be no exception. As usual the room is awash with red and black stripes painted like battle lines across faces, proudly proclaiming their allegiance for the night.

Drowning Pool

Drowning Pool

When it was announced that the nu-metal masters Drowning Pool will be paying a visit to London’s Relentless Garage, it was more than clear that those who truly enjoy going a little crazy while listening to “Bodies” are in for a treat. To make it even better, it was confirmed that Drowning Pool will be sharing the stage with Fozzy and Revoker, so there was no chance we could have missed such a show.

New York, NY: Roadrunner Records are delighted to announce the signing of boisterous Welsh metal quartet REVOKER. Hailing from the depths of Wales’ Rhymney Valley, the band will soon start work on their debut album with Skindred’s Benji Webbe for an early 2011 release.

For a vote of confidence in the band’s bright future, look no further than Monte Conner, Roadrunner’s Senior VP A&R. Conner enthuses, “Revoker are one of the most ass-kicking unsigned bands I have heard in a long time and I am beyond proud to welcome them to the Roadrunner family. Believe it or not, in my entire career at Roadrunner, they are the first UK band I have signed.”

Although Revoker officially formed in Spring 2006, frontman/guitarist Jamie Mathias and guitarist Chris Green have been playing in bands together since they became teenagers. The band’s engaging 19-year old mouthpiece Mathias comments, “Getting signed to Roadrunner is amazing and almost surreal. I’ve grown up listening to bands like Megadeth, Slipknot and Machine Head. So to be a part of the same label as them is nuts! I think Roadrunner is the perfect home for Revoker!”

Green echoes his thoughts: “It’s mind-blowing! If I could have picked any label then this would be it. I think this is the perfect label for us to be joining with. It’s amazing to be part of such a mammoth roster with bands we’ve looked up to for years ourselves.”

“If there’s one label any metal band dream of signing to, it’s Roadrunner!” said bassist Shane Phillips . The group is rounded out by Jack Pritchard on the drums.

With the UK’s Hammerfest and Download Festival already under their belt, not to mention praise-inducing support slots with Skindred and Soulfly, expect to see a lot more of these formidable youngsters as they take on the world!

Says Skindred’s Benji, “It was not just the music that drew me to Revoker – although they blew me away – it was their attitude of ‘we got it and we’re going to give it to you like it or not.’ From watching them live for the very first time and then going on to help them sculpt their songs, I knew it would only take a push in the right direction to make them explode from their sleepy Welsh hamlet onto the worldwide metal stage – and now with the help of Roadrunner they’re about to do just that.”

Revoker are managed by Blood Company/Good Fight Entertainment (Atreyu, Bleeding Through, Chiodos, Children Of Bodom, Every Time I Die) and booked by ITB.
