Revenge are a band from Columbia that plays a mixture of speed and heavy metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Harder Than Sreel" which was released by Rata Mutante Records.
A very melodic old school heavy metal sound starts off the album along with some solos and leads that add in even more melody and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after awhile the music goes for more of a speed metal direction that almost has the heaviness of thrash .
When vocals are added into t he music they are clean singing true metal vocals and all of the songs have a very vintage 80's metal feeling to them while the production sounds a little bit more on the modern side and you can also hear a lot of elements of NWOBHM in the guitar leads and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and after a few very heavy tracks the band also brings in a couple of song that have more of a rock orientate d approach to metal while still utilizing a great amount of speed and aggression.
Revenge plays a style of heavy/speed metal that is very melodic yet aggressive at the same time and they avoids any soft and clean parts to create a very true form of old school metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover war, death, Satan, metal and vengeance themes.
In my opinion Revenge are a very great sounding mixture of heavy and speed metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Headbangers Brigade" "Back For Vengeance" "At The Gates Of Hell" and "Chains And Leather". 8 out of 10.
