Formed by D.J. Hunter (Ex - To The Mountains) and Blake Cullum (Ex - Bring Your Own Bodies) in the fall of 2017, Revanchist was started with the goal to create uncompromising heavy music that would make for high energy live performances. The project was born with the intention of writing soul-crushing, groovy metal, and with the addition of Justin Kennelly on Vocals, this vision was quickly realized as the band started writing at a remarkable pace.
The band began playing live shows in mid 2018 after releasing their debut single “As Above, So Below”. Regan Mayer (The Avulsion, Bring Your Own Bodies) was enlisted to handle bass duties for the band. Revanchist has been playing shows for a relatively short time, however they have already shared the stage with some of the best bands in the western Canadian metal scene, such as Widows Peak, Raising the Ruins, Apollyon, This Gun For Hire, 2 Shadows and many more!
Blending the sounds of groove metal and modern metalcore/post-hardcore, there’s something for everyone in the band’s sound. Revanchist is currently in the studio recording their debut full length record, expected to be released in 2019!
