Sometimes the legacies you leave in life come back to haunt you. In this case the haunting comes in the form of a “REVENANT“. Tim Scott (bassist/vocalist) of METHANE has a longer history in metal music than just METHANE. Tim has a discography of 15 studio recordings released on well-known record labels. One of which was REVENANT ‘Prophecies Of A Dying World‘, put out originally on Nuclear Blast Records in 1991 with 9 tracks on the CD and 7 tracks on the LP.The album has now been re-released. This is the official 2017 re-issue on Cosmic Key Creations with all 9 tracks in a deluxe gatefold double album. Officially licensed from Revenant with support of Nuclear Blast. The re-issue is available from Nuclear Blast HERE and Cosmic Key Creations HERE
REVENANT (Thrash/Death metal) from Bergenfield, New Jersey U.S. Revenant was formed in 1986 by Henry Vegian and John McEntee (INCANTATION). The band was active between 1985-1995 untill parting ways. REVENANT toured both in the U.S. with bands like MORBID ANGEL, and Europe in 1991 with GOREFEST. Most known for its Prohecies of a Dying World LP the band had released two 7″ singles an EP and an extended CD on XTREEM MISUC in 2005 entitled ‘The Burning Ground’.
Tim Scott was born in Paterson, NJ, but spent much of his childhood in Northern California, where he was heavily influenced by the Bay Area thrash scene growing up. Moving back to New Jersey in his late teens, Tim became involved in the metal underground scene where he was introduced to Henry and John of REVENANT. Tim became a member of the band in 1988. He recorded and toured with REVENANT untill the band decided to break up. Tim decided to move to Florida and join the Death Metal scene which was thriving there at the time. He met up with Phil Fasciana from Malevolent Creation and was asked join HatePlow with Phil and Rob Barret of CANNIBAL CORPSE. Tim moved to Sweden soon after the release of HatePlow‘s ‘Everybody Dies‘ album.
In Sweden Tim has been involved in the Swedish underground metal scene recording with brutal death metallers VOLTURON (Vicisolum) , MARGRAVE with Toob of INSISION (Bifrost Records) and of course fronting Southern Groove Metal band METHANE.
