Revocation premieres lyric video for “Crumbling Imperium” via Loudwire.com

Revocation - Great Is Our Sin

On July 22nd, Revocation will release their most dynamic, boundary-pushing and weighty record to-date: Great Is Our Sin. Today, the band has unleashed a third blistering track from the album – check out the lyric video for “Crumbling Imperium” now via Loudwire.com: http://loudwire.com/revocation-crumbling-imperium-lyric-video-premiere/

For another preview of Great Is Our Sin – and to pre-order the record in various formats! – please visit: metalblade.com/revocation, where the previous singles, “Communion” and “Monolithic Ignorance”, can be heard.

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

Reuniting with producer Zeuss (Hatebreed, Bleeding Through), who also helmed 2014’s Deathless and 2012’s Teratogenesis EP, Great Is Our Sin 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. Whilst the lineup has changed over the ten years Revocation has been in existence, David Davidson’s (guitars / vocals) 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,” Davidson comments. “‘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.

RINGWORM Premiere “Shades Of Blue” Music Video via Stereogum

Ringworm band promo pic

Cleveland hardcore/thrash heavyweights RINGWORM have just shared a new music video from their forthcoming full-length Snake Church via Stereogum, who stated that “[RINGWORM have] refined absurdly tough-sounding stompfests down to a science.” Additionally, the band’s Human Furnace described the video,

 

“”Not horror, but more of a twisted love tale that accompanies the song. The story segments of the video where taken from a short film of the same name, “Shades of Blue”. It’s a sequel, a part 2. It picks up where the story told in the 2005 Ringworm video Justice Replaced by Revenge leaves off. Surprisingly, the entire project came together quite organically, despite being shot 11 years apart. We were able to get the same lead actors that we used 11 years ago and we were able to combine the original JRBR (Justice Replaced by Revenge) footage, current footage and secondary footage, (shot later) to tell the second part of the story. The Shades video tells part of that story that is fully revealed in the short film.”

 

Watch “Shades Of Blue” now at this location:

 

Also, you can watch the official music video for the title track “Snake Church” (directed by Don Tyler) here.

 

Legendary Cleveland quintet RINGWORM‘s 8th full-length album Snake Church is a 12-track, 30+ minute testament of vicious aggression. After having converted metalheads and hardcore fans alike with their intense, no-holds-barred live shows and consistently punishing albums over the course of the last 25+ years, RINGWORM once again prove that they are in a league of their own when it comes to face-breaking sonic fury. Recorded and produced by Ben Schigel (Chimaira, ZAO) at Spider Studios and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Xibalba, Black Breath), Snake Church obliterates the listener and never relents, leaving nothing but bile and bone in its wake.

 

Snake Church is due out this July 29 on CD/LP/Digital via Relapse. Physical pre-orders can be found at this location, and digital pre-orders are available via the band’s Bandcamp page here.

 

Info/Bio:
Ever since emerging from the Cleveland metal underground, RINGWORM has garnered the immediate attention of hardcore and metal fans. RINGWORM displays an awesome ferocity in the power of its instruments, and vocalist The Human Furnace uses his voice as a tool to extract the diabolical nature of anyone who hears it. The band has toured with dozens of prominent metal and hardcore acts over the years, ranging from Hatebreed and Converge to Goatwhore, Napalm Death, Voivod, and Eyehategod.

 

RINGWORM was spawned in 1991 from the metal scene in Cleveland, Ohio. In 1993, the band released The Promise (Incision Records), finding their place amongst other hardcore metal heavyweights such as Integrity and Earth Crisis. However, despite this early success, RINGWORM decided to pursue personal ventures: the Human Furnace concentrated his focus on tattooing and his artwork, while other members joined up with hardcore legends Integrity. Nearly 10 years later, 2001 saw RINGWORM emerge from their hiatus with their critically-acclaimed Victory Records debut Birth Is Pain. Extensive touring followed. The band continued on a steadily upward trajectory, honing its craft and releasing the well-received albums Justice Replaced By Revenge (2005), The Venomous Grand Design, (2007), and Scars (2011) via Victory over the course of the next decade.

 

In 2013, RINGWORM signed to renowned independent label Relapse Records and released yet another testament to their sheer brutality. 2014’s Hammer Of The Witch helped elevate the band far beyond underground circles, cementing RINGWORM‘s reputation as a hardcore / metal heavyweight and garnering praise from by a wide range of publications worldwide including Pitchfork, MetalSucks, and Revolver. 2016 is poised to be a breakout year for RINGWORM with the impending release of the band’s eighth full-length, Snake Church.
