As REVOCATION near closer to the release of their latest masterpiece Great is Our Sin, the band is pleased to debut another track entitled “Profanum Vulgus”. The song, which was first heard with an exclusive interview with frontman Dave Davidson on the Metal Sucks Podcast earlier this week, can be heard HERE.
REVOCATION has also released a video providing in-depth footage from the recording process of Great Is Our Sin. Watch the video HERE.
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.
Great is Our Sin is slated for a July 22nd release date via Metal Blade Records. The first song track streaming from the album entitled “Communion” is streaming now at http://www.metalblade.com/revocation Pre-order your copy of Great is Our Sinin exclusive bundle packages there as well!
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.
Regardless of the state of the world, nothing is going to slow REVOCATION down any time soon. Whilst the lineup has changed over the ten years the band has been in existence, Davidson’s passion has never waned, and they are arguably sounding better than ever as they look toward the future. “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.”
In support of Great Is Our Sin, REVOCATION will be hitting the road this summer as part of the Summer Slaughter tour alongside Cannibal Corpse, Nile, After the Burial, Suffocation, Carnifex, Krisiun, Slaughter to Prevail and Ingested.
