Swedish death metal giants REVOLTING premiere track via GRIZZLY BUTTS

Revolting have proved beyond doubt that they’re a force to be reckoned with especially where this HM-2 style death metal goes. Rogga Johansson is in top form here, and as previously mentioned, the music finds a sweet spot arguably between the pummelling onslaught of Paganizer and the melodic flair of Rogga Johansson. US site Grizzly Butts premiered a beautiful track AT THIS LINK. Here’s an excerpt from it –

As with their previous album (‘Monolith of Madness’) this record kicks off with a set of triumphant melodic death metal pieces that are not only distinctly inspired by the classics of Swedish death metal but delivered with plenty of speed, big HM-2 girded hooks and Chthonic energy.

Revolting happens to be one of Rogga Johansson’s most prominent and long-running bands along with Paganizer. The band is also one of the most active ones. Fans will know that they’ve honed their craft over the years and they do things in a better way with each one. For the seventh full length, Rogga Johansson has done his best blending classic Swedish melodies with the brute force that his bands are associated with. Imagine a mix of Paganizer and Rogga Johansson and you’ve got something that has the best qualities of both the Swedish-sounding bands, which are presently at the peak of their respective careers. There’s of course the added groove and memorability that’s hard to dislike. All in all, if you’re a fan of well-rounded Swedish death metal that has everything in spades, Revolting is for you.
