Revoltons is a band out of Italy that have been around for quite a long time. Formed in 1991, they recently put out a new, full-length album on Sleazy Rider Records with new singer, Antonio and guitarist, Carlo. Both joining the band back in 2022. The new album, Celestial Violence, is a great mix of fast guitars, intricate solos, fast and steady drumbeats and vocals that have great range. Antonio goes from a clean pitch on “Escape or Drown” to a deeper growl on “The Darkfall.” On “The Darkfall” he switches back and forth giving it a more Heavy Metal sound.

Celestial Violence

One of the standout aspects of Celestial Violence is the impeccable musicianship displayed by the band. The guitar work is very fast, with intricate riffs, blistering solos, and dynamic harmonies that showcase both technical precision and emotional depth. The rhythm section provides a solid foundation, with thunderous bass lines and tight, intricate drumming that adds a powerful and driving force to the music.

Lyrically, Celestial Violence delves into thought-provoking and existential themes, exploring the depths of the human psyche and our relationship with the vast universe. The poetic and introspective lyrics, coupled with the captivating vocal delivery, add another layer of depth and emotion to the album. The combination of clean melodic singing and powerful growls further adds to the dynamic range and intensity of the music.

Throughout the album, Revoltons maintain a perfect balance between heavy, aggressive passages and moments of melancholy beauty. Tracks like “Escape or Drown” and “Reality is a Crime” showcase the band’s ability to play both fast, brutal music with aggressive vocals as well as slowed down tempo and clean, melodic vocals. The structure of this album seems to flow effortlessly and tell a story of Earth over the last couple years.


Celestial Violence is an amazing Progressive Metal album with great range and artistic vision. Two of the standout tracks on this album are “Escape or Drown” and “The Darkfall” for sure. Both songs will burrow in your head and stay there all day. Revoltons’ musicianship, songwriting, and overall execution are nothing short of extraordinary. This album is an excellent example of their talent and serves as a testament to their creative prowess. If you are a fan of Progressive music that pushes boundaries and leaves a lasting impact, Celestial Violence is an absolute must-listen. Prepare to be taken on a musical journey that will leave you craving for more.

    Jon is a reviewer at Metal Express Radio and is currently living in Wisconsin, USA. The first thing that made Jon fall in love with Metal goes all the way back to the glory days of MTV actually playing music. Alice in Chains, "Man in the Box" came on and the channel was automatically banned by family. It sparked a curiosity for the music instead of turning him away from it. Things only progressed from there. Suicidal Tendencies, Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth, all the heavier stuff from the late '80s and early '90s were always in rotation. Aside from loving all things Metal, Jon also runs a skateshop in his hometown and is trying to get the scene stronger than ever.
