Having delivered five killer albums boasting some of the most potent, technical and abrasive metal unleashed over the last decade, it would be easy for REVOCATION to sit back and rest upon their laurels. However, with their constant drive to push their sound ever forward and refusal to compromise their integrity, this could never be the case – and “Great Is Our Sin“ is their most dynamic, boundary-pushing and weighty release to date.
Today Stereogum.com is presenting the second audio offering off of “Great Is Our Sin“. The lyric video for the song ‘Monolithic Ignorance‘ can be viewed below.
“Great Is Our Sin“ is slated for a July 22nd release date via Metal Blade Records. To hear the first single, ‘Communion’ – and to pre-order the record in various formats! – please visit: metalblade.com/revocation
When it came time for the follow-up to 2014’s ‘Deathless‘, the quartet had their work cut out for them, and their response to the challenge is a record that grabs you by the throat and refuses to let go. Never forcing anything, the songs that would comprise “Great Is Our Sin“ came together organically, and while the members being spread all around North America would have been an impediment to some, REVOCATION drew strength from it.
Reuniting with producer Zeuss (Hatebreed, Bleeding Through), who also helmed ‘Deathless‘ and 2012’s ‘Teratogenesis‘ EP, the record packs the requisite punch, yet retains the organic feel with which it was conceived. Known for their technical prowess, the band remained dedicated to upping the ante without ever losing sight of the importance of good songwriting.
“We can’t wait to bring these songs out on the road and perform them for different audiences all over the world. ‘Great Is Our Sin’ is a new chapter for the band, and collectively we feel that it is our defining record to date.”
