Drummer Julia Geaman had this to say about the forthcoming EP:

“I think the particular style that we are creating is pretty exciting. It’s straight up thrash that can get catchy sometimes or more death metal other times but over all it’s pretty straight forward, but that’s where I find the freedom in it. We can be unpredictable and come up with two riffs that don’t seem to go together at first but somehow work and then lead back into something more traditional. We play the music we grew up listening to but with our own filter on it. Ultimately we don’t try to sound like anyone, but our influences definitely come out. Bringing this EP to as many people as we can is something that is getting me really excited and I’m super stoked for this next year. A lot of hard work has gone into this as with any musical project and it’s incredible to bring it into reality.”

Think thrash, 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.

Hex comes screaming out of the box like a starving animal, hard & heavy riffs, throat bloodying vocals & dark heavy bass. It’s a track that shows Revenger mean business. Not that the rest of the EP rests on its laurels in anyway.

Anti Life continues the head-banging groove, impressing with some super throaty roaring vocals. We Want Blood gets down and dirty but sudden bursts of hard-hitting drumming before The Man Who Shot God tears a hole in the fabric of time with pure, unadulterated aggression.

An impressive showing from Revenger closes out with The Watcher. Fast technically proficient riffs wrapped up in an forceful thrashy edge but it’s the groove that really shows off the undeterred rage that sits within Revenger.
