REVENANT have signed a deal for a limited CD release entitled "The Burning Ground" with Spain’s Xtreem Music. The CD will feature all the classic Revenant demos from 1987-1995 on a single CD (14 tracks in total), including many unreleased songs, ancient demo tracks, alternate versions of classic songs and a live version of ‘The Unearthly’ recorded on the "Prophecies" European tour. The original tapes were transferred to digital format and mixed and mastered this winter. The CD will also contain a 14 page booklet of classic artwork, photos, and flyers from the band’s long career. The photos were contributed by various people and they include rare photos of REVENANT with many of their friends from the underground, including Ripping Corpse, Immolation and Deceased. Henry Veggian also wrote a short essay for the booklet. The CD will be released in June, 2005. You can already check out the cover art on the band’s website at www.revenant.ws. The band also found a box of classic longsleeve shirts which they will be selling to anyone who’s interested. The shirts are black and on the front you’ll get a large red and white tribal version of the "R" logo (the same one that appears on the "Overman" CD cover). The back features a large Revenant logo (in block letters) over a photo of the band’s line-up, circa 1993. Beneath it are written the lyrics "Rise-Destroy-Rebuild" from the song "The Faithless." The same song title is printed in large letters down the left sleeve. The majority are size large, but there are about a half dozen XL size shirts as well. The shirts are being sold for twenty USD (plus a few bucks for shipping, depending on where you live). Since the supply is strictly limited, you should contact them soon!
