“I knew that I needed to go in a darker route, and that is our most loss of life steel album thus far,” states vocalist/guitarist Dave Davidson.
“Sometimes when loss of life steel bands go down the prog route, they lose a few of that edge, however we needed to maintain the aggression on the forefront of what we do whereas nonetheless pushing our boundaries.”
Moving away from the societal and historic themes that knowledgeable “Great Is Our Sin”, this time Davidson has immersed himself within the improbable, evoking one of many nice writers of the sci-fi/horror style.
“The title is my ode to H.P. Lovecraft and the entities of pure cosmic horror that rule that universe he created,” Davidson says. “Since the brand new music we had been writing was so evil and spacey in sections, it gave the impression to be the precise title to suit the general vibe. But whereas the lyrical content material is essentially influenced by such writings, in each allegory there’s, in fact, some reflection of the actual world, so I take pleasure in writing in a means that might have one overlaying which means after which one other deeper, symbolic which means as effectively.”
REVOCATION is at present collaborating in its first North American headlining tour in a number of years, with EXHUMED, RIVERS OF NIHIL and YAUTJA as help.
