Cerebral brutalists COGNITIVE emerged in 2011 with the sole intent to create heavy and intensely technical music, while maintaining a creative edge; placing them light years beyond a sea of over-produced sub-genres. Hailing from South Jersey, COGNITIVE combine technicality, mind-bending groove, searing guitar solos, and brutally abstract song writing; COGNITIVE continue to push themselves outside of the box, while maintaining a sheer brutal edge.

Revocation to release new album, ‘Great Is Our Sin’, on July 22nd; first single, “Communion”, streaming now; exclusive pre-order bundles available

Revocation - Great Is Our Sin

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 from the album, entitled “Communion”, is available for streaming starting today. Head to to get a first listen to the track and pre-order your copy of Great Is Our Sin today!

Front-man Dave Davidson commented about the first track: “‘Communion’ is the fastest song we’ve recorded to date, and while it’s blistering in terms of speed, there are also some proggy elements present to add contrast to the aggression.”

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.

While the songs come together to make for a cohesive record that is engaging from front to back, they are further united by the lyrical concept penned by Davidson. The title itself appropriated from Charles Darwin’s quote: “If the misery of the poor be caused not by the laws of nature, but by our institutions, great is our sin”, Davidson went about building a theme that was not only fittingly expansive, but also had real resonance with regard to contemporary society. “The concept revolves around the folly of man throughout the ages. Some themes come from historical references that are hundreds of years old, yet sadly these themes are still very relevant today due to mankind’s refusal to learn from the lessons history has taught us, time and time again.”

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.”

Great Is Our Sin track-listing:
1. Arbiters of The Apocalypse
2. Theatre of Horror
3. Monolithic Ignorance
4. Crumbling Imperium
5. Communion
6. The Exaltation
7. Profanum Vulgus
8. Copernican Heresy
9. Only the Spineless Survive
10. Cleaving Giants of Ice

Jim Breuer and the Loud & Rowdy - Songs From the Garage

In anticipation of the release of their debut full-length, Songs From The Garage, Jim Breuer and The Loud & Rowdy have made the album available for pre-streaming via Pandora. The LP will be fully released next Friday, May 27th, via Metal Blade Records, with special guests such as Brian Johnson (AC/DC) – who provides vocals on two tracks – and producer/guitarist Rob Caggiano (Anthrax, Volbeat). To hear Songs From The Garage in its entirety, please visit:

Breuer has created a record that is pure, unadulterated fun while remaining true to his rock sensibilities. Backing him up is The Loud & Rowdy, with Mike Tichy on drums, Joe Vigliotti on bass, and Metal Mike on guitar. After finding themselves on massive festival stages, the band headed into three different studios to record – Metrosonic Studios Brooklyn, Clear Track Studios, and Sonic Debris Recording Studio. With Caggiano on production and guitar duties, the album was filled with 11 musically badass tracks, featuring lyrics that are not only funny but also relatable, reflecting Breuer’s position in life: “A dad with three kids who loves family life yet is still a metalhead at heart.” To pre-order Songs From The Garage in various formats, please visit:
