REVENGE is a Colombian Speed Metal band, formed in 2002 in Medellin. Without a doubt, they are one of the most hard working bands of the Colombian Metal scene: after doing debut demo in 2003, and after earning local popularity, the band released debut album “Metal Warriors” (Dark Music Productions) just one year later.  In 2006, after extensive touring, second album titled “Rage And Revenge” got released on the Wicked Creations label. Special EP titled “Bang Your Head” was released in 2008 by Rata Mutante Records, and was available in several editions incl. deluxe version with live bonus tracks. After several single releases and compilation appearances, next studio album titled “Death Sentence” was out in 2009, and was available as tape, CD (Rata Mutante Records) and LP (Floga Records). The same year Iron Bonehead Productions released the “Whipping Death” EP, which was German version of the “Bang Your Head” EP, incl. bonus tracks. In 2010 first band’s DVD titled “Revenge Is Very Good Eaten Cold” got unleashed, and one year later, fifth studio album titled “Metal Is: Addiction And Obsession” (available as several editions worldwide). After doing two split releases, next studio album titled “Vendetta” is out in 2012 (again available in several versions worldwide), and is promoted on live shows in Colombia, Argentina, Paraguay, Peru and Ecuador. Between 2013 and 2014 the band released two more split EPs, and 2 more singles.

Their current album titled “Harder Than Steel” came out in 2014 in South America, and in January of 2015 in Europe, on Iron Shield Records.


About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
