First Single "Communion" Streaming Now

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 below. Head to http://www.metalblade.com/revocation to pre-order your copy of Great Is Our Sin today!

Frontman Dave Davidson commented on 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 Some themes come from historical references that are hundreds of years old, yet sadly these themes are still very relevant today due to mankind's refusal to learn from the lessons history has taught us,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."

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.
