Listen to the Oldschool Post-Punk, Darkwave, and Gothic Rock Sound of REVISER’s “Assassins” & “Burn It Out”

Music can’t rewrite history, but it can revise the context through which we experience the past, letting us live it with newfound empathy and understanding. In this spirit, REVISER emerged in the Winter of 2023 from the smoky haze of the mid-west underground landscape. The new collaborative project transports listeners to a realm where the echoes of the past are reborn with fresh intensity, with songs that explore the internal and external struggles of power. This project, guided by the resonant baritone guitar and vocals of Krysztof Nemeth from Emmaline Twist, forms a musical alliance with Dedric Moore, his partner from Kansas City’s electro-dance outfit Monta, on the second guitar. Krysztof’s programming intricately weaves expansive post-punk and shoegaze guitars with the dark allure of keyboard textures and the relentless pulse of drum machines. The trio is rounded out by Tom Romero on synths, also a Monta alum.

REVISER’s sound channels the ghostly echoes of iconic 80s pioneers such as Sisters of Mercy, The Cure, and Killing Joke, while their contemporary kindred spirits include Actors, Soft Kill, and Drab Majesty. Their adept synthesis of these influences conjures a soundscape that feels both hauntingly familiar and invigoratingly fresh, imbued with a deep, resonant, and danceable energy.

Recently, REVISER unveiled two new singles: Assassins and Burn It Out, each exploring different dimensions of resistance and empowerment.

Assassins is a relentless anthem confronting the oppressive forces that seek to crush our individuality. With its haunting guitar and keyboard hooks, the track delivers a powerful message of defiance and rebellion, urging listeners to stand against the shadows that threaten to overtake them.

Burn It Out delves into the theme of harnessing one’s inner strength and wielding it with deliberate intent. As with all of REVISER’s lyrics, the ultimate meaning is left to the listener’s interpretation. This bass-driven powerhouse is equally suited for the dance floor or those introspective midnight drives, blending raw energy with reflective undertones.

Produced by Paul Malinowski of SHINER, these two tracks are now accessible across all major digital platforms.
