Initial Impressions: Revocation Flexi

This month's flexi from Decibel is the technical thrash metal band Revocation covering the Death classic “Pull the Plug”. “Pull the Plug” was the first song I ever heard from Death and the song I have heard most often, so I know it pretty well.

Revocation does a reasonable job with this cover. It sounds a bit sludgier than the original version, a bit more down-tempo, but the original was not exactly a speed metal song to begin with. The vocals are bit more on the extreme side, having a much deeper and full-forced roar. It just does not sound quite right though.

As I said, Revocation does do a reasonable job with this cover. But there really is no topping the original.

  1. I haven't convinced myself it's worthwhile to get a turntable just to play these Decibel flexis. I'm thinking not. Perhaps I'll hold onto them and do a contest on my blog at some point, giving them all away.
