Revocation announce new album details

Tech-death metal band REVOCATION have announced the release of their new album, Great Is Our Sin.

The release date for the album is July 22 via Metal Blade Records with the first single Communion available here alongside pre-order bundles.

REVOCATION have given us five outstanding albums, shoving out some of the most technical and brutal metal over the last few years, Great Is Our Sin, however has been labelled the bands most dynamic, boundary-pushing and weighty release to date.

Front-man Dave Davidson commented on Communion:

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 contract to the aggression.”

REVOCATION have reunited with producer Zeuss (HATEBREED, BLEEDING THROUGH) who also produced 2014’s Deathless and 2012’s Teratogenesis‘ EP. Apparently the songs come together for a cohesive record that is consistently engaging, but they are united by the lyrical concept from Davidson. The title for the album is taken from a Charles Darwin quote: “If the misery of the poor be caused not by the laws of nature, but by our institutions, great is our sin.”

REVOCATION are not on a path to slowing down any time now, and whilst in the past ten years the line-up has changed, Davidson’s passion has never ebbed away, saying this about Great Is Our Sin:

“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.”
