Boston punk outfit REVILERS have been kicking about on their local scene since 2008, and finally dropped debut album Revilers on Patac Records at the end of March. Containing thirteen no-holds-barred and vitriolic as heck anthems, Revilers builds on the EP’s (Isolation, Stand or Fall - both on Patac) the band have released previously and fully realises their stance on the world and how these individuals see it.
Featuring words spat by two vocalists, JH and S (who can also be found wielding a guitar each), REVILERS take a firm approach in their punk rock sensibilities and whilst this is a band with something clear to say, that message is never forced down your throat. A lot of politically charged bands are inclined to do that and it’s refreshing to hear a young band taking their time with their points and letting them seep into your subconscious rather than stomping them all over your face. As such, REVILERS can be enjoyed on two levels – as a fast paced, crazy good fun punk rock record, or as an album with that something extra to say. “No Bullshit Reactor,” “Quit My Job” and “Sick Of Being Sick And Tired” hiding a deep dislike of “the man” behind the always welcome gang vocal chant and the occasional guitar solo – not often heard in this genre.
