Revenge Death Ball / Press

“Here is that new EP. Less than a month old, this EP kicks some serious ass. It kicks more ass than you’ll ever see in one lifetime. The vocals are heavy and gruffy and the riffs come down on you like a ton of bricks falling from the Empire State Building. Prepare to bruise up from the inside as that’s what these tunes do to you the nanosecond they enter your ears. ”

“Revenge Death Ball includes Downspell bassist Woogie and Screamin Yeehaws singer Nick Bone, alongside members from Dpi, Behind the Wagon, Johnny Castle, Se Vende, and Throatcloser. Their debut album It’s an Attack was released in January 2012. This new all-star band includes Downspell bassist Woogie and Screamin Yeehaws singer Nick Bone, alongside members from Dpi, Behind the Wagon, Johnny Castle, Se Vende, and Throatcloser.”

“RECORD-RELEASE ROUNDUP- It’s an Attack! Revenge Death Ball’s kind of a big band — there will be, like, 17 players on the Shakedown stage at their CD release. When Revenge Death Ball launches their full-length It’s An Attack at the Shakedown on January 21, “At least 17 different people will be performing, a few at a time,” says bandleader Ronald “Woogie” Maggard, “so there will be different drummers, singers, bassists, and guitar players for every song.” Guests will include members of the Screamin’ Yeehaws, Downspell, Behind the Wagon, DPI, and others.”

“With a little bit of edge on their Fu Mancho-tinged doomy sludge, REVENGE DEATH BALL plays like desert Metal whittled by harshness of the otherwise unforgiving climate: slow, callous, and utterly maniacal.The band's sound reminds me of the great licks from the now defunct Gargantula, especially vocals, which are perfectly aligned with the band's demolition-sounding riffs and enjoyable jagged time changes. Add to this a whole lot of Kyuss, a smattering of Crass and Black Flag, and just a touch of Slayer, and you have a band with an easy appeal: something to put on when driving in the fast lane toward an uncertain destiny.Most appealing is the fuel and recklessness of their music; a perfect combination for creating stoner doom groove.Whereas Teck Death favors virtuosity and precision, and Progressive Metal often wallows in epic interludes. Bottom line: if you want to hear something a little dark and a little dangerous without the pretention and pomp of other bands, these guys! ”
