Biography

Revega is an original 4-piece hard rock band that was founded in 2004 in Edmonton , AB , Canada . In the late 90s, Garrett teamed up with Brian Bruno to experiment with a unique blend of metal, hard rock and funk. Heavily influenced by Pantera and Slayer, the duo formed a ferociously loud and aggressive musical force. Plying their trade in the local music scene, the pair became known for their outrageous conduct both on and off the stage. In early 2003, Lindsay joined the band's pursuit to bring back the "rocking-out-ass-kicking" attitude lacking in much of today's metal.

In late 2003, the trio entered the studio armed with vision and conviction. As work progressed on their independent album, auditions were held for a lead singer. No doubt was left in anyone's mind once Ricardo was chosen to be Revega's dark and brooding voice. Revega's self-titled demo disc, which draws on a variety of influences including Tool, SOAD, Pantera and The Cure, was released in late 2004.

The end of 2005 brought with it great changes to the band, as Brian left to pursue a solo project. Eager to make Revega a growing force in the local indie scene, auditions were held in late 2005 for a new lead guitarist. By early 2006 Jason Ferland officially became the newest member of the band. Influenced by Sevendust and SOAD, we look forward to seeing what Jason brings to the stage.

Lyrics

Should've Known

Written By: Ricardo Perdigao

I’m born through dirty canals
She slit her veins and I came down Cold hands pushing around me Injected with this poison I’m bound free

Circle the correct answers
With your splintered fingers
Trust in this severed noose
Shallow waters set you loose

If worthwhile could've shown
If worthwhile should've known
If worthwhile safe to say, safe to say, no!

Quick to age like cellophane
I dry the moist scent of her hips Novocaine lips utter fantasies Drugged and livid, ready to roll

Shallow waters set you loose
Shallow waters set you…

Set you…set you…set you!

If worthwhile could've shown
If worthwhile should've known
If worthwhile could've shown
If worthwhile should've known
If worthwhile safe to say, safe to say, no!

Clean Cut Delusion

Written By: Ricardo Perdigao

Got this nagging on my brain Telling me to cleanse again
Forcing its weight through the walls
Setting me up for the fall

Used to think it was easy to (Used to think it was easy to)
Crawl and live with the chosen few Bang my head to the noise inside
(Bang my head to the noise inside)
And I'll take the plunge, (‘til I ‘til I) ‘til I confide in...

CHORUS:
An absence in the faith
Decay with its lies
Blood will spill for days
And if I could wash my eyes

Look to take in my dead wives Conscious ploy set to time Outbreak of these viral disease
(Outbreak of these viral disease)
And I’ll take the odds, (‘til I ‘til I) ‘til I confide in...

CHORUS

And if I could wash my eyes x4 ’til I confide in! CHORUS

Evolve

Written By: Ricardo Perdigao

In too sincere of a mood
Got six tabs flipping through
News broke where were you
Digging graves for pennies a few

PRECHORUS:
System broke but not dysfunctional
I scream just to breathe I’m nonsensical

CHORUS:
Change!
For your plans to come
Strange!
How it pays to slum
Change!
I don’t wanna indulge
Strange!
How you can’t evolve

We sit in silence but there’s
We sit in silence but there’s
Never never
A pause

Flying by on our wits
The books you read just a bunch of shit
They said the boy got slit
Bills that bled so counterfeit

PRECHORUS

CHORUS x2

How you can’t evolve x3
