Guilty Pleasures & Hidden Gems: The Revenants (Germany)
The Revenants (Gothic Rock / Alternative Rock, Germany)
When a band starts with a double album as their debut full-length, they definitely have big plans for the future!
And that’s exactly what The Revenants are doing: Their first album »Ghosts« will be released on April 21, 2023 as a double CD digipack with 20 brand new songs. If the voice sounds familiar, you will quickly realize that Michelle Darkness (End Of Green) is part of this new band.
Spring 2018. No big intro, no fanfare and no sensational announcment.
The two longtime soulbrothers, Italian-rooted guitar wizard Fabiano Arganese and Marc Ayerle, guitarist, producer and live sound engineer for decades, started to jam around in Marcs own Klangmanufaktur studios. There was no plan, no concept, nor any rules or genre typical limitations.
The guiding light was the music itself, the song was taking control over the path which shall be followed.
Marc decided to ask one of his best and nearest friends, Michelle Darkness, well-known voice of southern German gloomsters End Of Green (Marc is doing their live sound engineering for nearly 20 years now), to try some vocals on those.
It was a perfect match. The songs began to breath and it all started to gain contour. The rest seemed really to be predictable. The songwriting and production went like a breeze. 20 songs were finished and…
The Revenants was born!
“»Ghosts« by The Revenants is the sensational debut double(!) album which features End Of Green singer Michelle Darkness together with the two longtime soulbrothers Marc Ayerle and Fabio Arganese in their ranks. Stylistically, the whole thing is somewhere between Billy Idol, Roxette and Nashville rock… with a pinch of HIM.”
