Lyric videos suck

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking, my first post in months, and it’s this? But I cannot stand lyrics videos. Something has to be said. Nothing is more pointless, lazy and obscene than the release of these so called “videos”. But hey, I get it, it makes marketing sense. Get the song out there as soon as you can with a cheaply put together lyric video. Then you can release a ‘proper’ video later down the line.

If you look above, Revoker have released a video for the track ‘Born to be an Outlaw’. Not only is it a lyric video though, the song also sucks, so don’t bother listening to it.

Review: Revoker – Revenge for the Ruthless

In more recent years, Wales (that small village in the western part of England that likes to think it’s a separate country, for those outside the UK unaware) has often been cited as a hotspot for modern elite Rock and Metal bands. In reality, it’s not. They’ve given us such “unique” (read: Shit) bands as Lostprophets, Funeral for a Friend, Bullet for My Valentine and Skindred (and at this point I’m going to have to stop before I puke), so believe me when I say I’m sceptical to hear about some new “talent” that has emerged from this village country.

Revoker, rising with the same PR crap as Bullet for My Valentine and other Welsh bands, have been touted as a Welsh Metal revolution in the making, being apparently one of the best Metal bands to arrive in the last year. At least that’s the sort of stuff I’ve read elsewhere.

Being an objective man, and with curiosity getting the best of me as Revoker signed to Roadrunner Records for their debut and have received a fair bit of hype, I figured I’d check out debut Revenge for the Ruthless. Make the jump for the review.
