Published Feb 13, 2009Besides releasing the earliest material from Rage Against the Machine, Revelation Records was influential in transitioning hardcore from the late '80s into the '90s, boasting influential releases from Gorilla Biscuits, Sick of It All, Youth of Today and numerous others. To celebrate their 150th release, the label has announced a unique compilation.
Featuring 20 tracks, the comp features modern hardcore bands covering classic Revelation Records tracks from year's past. Among the contributors to this project are Terror, Set Your Goals, Damnation A.D., This Is Hell and numerous others.
Of course, how could it be modern hardcore without some limited, highly covetable merch? To coincide with the release, Revelation has teamed up with Adidas to produce a highly limited sneaker. As the label explains, "every band that recorded for the comp got a pair for each member of the band. Hopefully Adidas will make some more of these to sell so we can get them to everyone who would like a pair. We made 150 pairs to go along with the 150th release for Revelation Records." The shoes can be viewed here.
While the chances of you getting the kicks are a little iffy, the compilation will definitely be available, but as of yet there is no official release date.
