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, Dave 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."
Read on for some reviews of Revocation's acclaimed album:
"Serious technical prowess here, expertly mixed with aggression, well-timed breakdowns and about two classy solos per track."
"...A controlled cacophony, with enough anger and melodic thrash that it recalls (or at least evokes fond memories of) Megadeth's 'Rust in Peace'..."
"They are the full realization of what bands like WatchTower started to aim for in the '80s, but they've taken the spirit of those bands for themselves."
"Revocation albums are like little treasure troves."
"They are truly finding their footing with extended range riffs that's in a completely different class than their peers."
