REVENGER premiered first single "We Want Blood" last month. The song is streaming on Youtube and Bandcamp.
The New Mythology Vol.1, REVENGER's second studio release, is a five-song EP that expands on the band's aggressive thrash style with tracks that are more technical, visceral and direct than debut album To The Wolves. Formed in 2012, the band introduces some key members that shape the sound and vibe of this EP, which is more calculated and driven than before. Heavy guitar rhythms punctuated by a consistent thrash pulse breaks only when the groove requires and marks REVENGER's particular style. The lyrics and gritty death
vocals also bring out the rage and bitterness of the subject matter which, for this EP, is slightly more conceptual and inspired by comic books and how today's mythology could become tomorrow's dogma.
"Think old school thrash with a bit more technicality & you'll understand what The New Mythology Vol. 1 is all about. Direct & in your face, it's a hostile slab of metal."
- Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life
"This entire EP is heavy, memorable, groove filled, melodic and incredibly entertaining."
- Cadaver Garden
"Revenger possess a visceral, groove-heavy modern thrash style that makes The New Mythology Vol. 1, quite the engaging and pulverizing listen."
"There's a lot of good music coming out of Canada right now, and these guys are a prime example. A metal band that keeps it real."
- Bloodrock Media
"A great, technical and powerful thrash metal work."
"A very heavy thrash influenced sound."
- True Bringer of Death Zine

With the intent of bringing together technical thrash metal and gritty groove riffs, Revenger was born in 2012 through the hands of guitarist Jean-Pierre Poulin and drummer Chris Warunki. The pair had written music together before and the combination of their styles and personalities was a natural experiment. In March 2014, Revenger debuted in Vancouver to warm reviews.
Their first independent album To the Wolves came out in September 2014 with Jordan Knute (lead guitar), Greg Cavanagh (vocals) and Darryl Greer (bass). In early 2015, Revenger's lineup evolved to include Julia Geaman (drums) and Andrew Bailey (vocals). The following year was largely focused on woodshedding, playing local and regional shows/festivals alongside renowned bands such as Havok, Beyond Creation, Archspire, Tengger Cavalry, Stryker and Unleash the Archers.
2016 saw the introduction of Sean Parkinson on guitar (replacing Jordan Knute), and the interesting switch from guitar to bass for founder and main song writer JP Poulin. Ending the year with a 5-song EP written and ready to be recorded in early 2017, Revenger is ready to tour extensively and work tirelessly to get their music out to the world.
