‘VENGEANCEIS…LIVE’ is the brand new 15 song platter to be delivered to the masses on December 7th 2018 showcasing highlights from their previous three album such as the ominous ’When Darkness Calls’, classic ’Bleed For Me’, ‘Until My Dying Breath’ and ‘Angel In Black’, also includes the monster riffage of ‘Race To Obscene’….and never forgotten epic title-track ’Gods Of War’ as well as three brand new songs from their latest EP release, ‘Fire Lord’, ‘Phoenix Rising’ and the crowd chanting ‘New Order’. The disc also includes two classic covers, IronMaiden’s’Wasted Years’ and Savatage’s‘Power Of The Night’ and finally closing the disc with the classic fan favorite ‘Revolution Rising’.
The band is comprised of veteran members from many known-named bands. Scott Oliva (ex-WindWraith, Innerstrength, vocals), Steve ‘Dr. Killdrums’ Wacholz (ex-Savatage/CrimsonGlory, drums), Bryan Holland (ex-Tokyo Blade, guitars), Paul Kleff (ex-Metal Church live, FireWolfe, guitars), Russ Pzutto (Twisted Sister live, Dee Snider, bass).
Originally formed in 2010, REVERENCE, as their name describes, brings a sonic cocktail of classic era Savatage, Queensrycheand JudasPriest with soaring vocals, brutal guitar riffage and face melting guitar solos in addition to the massive thunder from Savatage’sown original drummer ‘Dr. Killdrums’ behind the kit!
REVERENCEhas released three highly acclaimed albums, their debut ‘When Darkness Calls’ in 2012 which immediately put the band on the metal world map, often being referred to as a ‘Supergroup’ from many press outlets and reviewers. They followed up with their second outing, the critically acclaimed ‘Gods Of War’ in 2015 which showed remarkable growth in their songwriting and musicianship within the band garnering again high praise from fans and critics alike. Vocalist Scott Oliva joined the band after the exit of current RiotV vocalist ToddMichaelHall in early 2016 and began writing for a new album. In early 2017 the band tragically lost guitarist Pete Rossi and decided to dedicate their next release, the long-running and dark-toned EP entitled ‘Foreverence’ in 2017 with new guitarist, former MetalChurch live and FireWolfe guitarist PaulKleff, the EP gave the band the opportunity to honor their fallen brother while giving themselves time to grieve. While they continue to write for their next studio album due in 2019, they thought it was time to showcase their incredible electric live performances.
‘VENGEANCEIS…LIVE’ is a true testament to the bands high energy stage show and stellar musicianship that demands to be played at Full Volume!
