Yeah I might as well bump mine up to a 4.5. The first few pages of these comments are pretty funny though. A couple of dickheads trying to shit all over this and the only real thing they say is they don't like the production haha

That's pretty much what I gathered. It also isn't shitty enough to be generally off putting to most people I guess

Very fun and engaging album. I don't think there's anything close to a weak song here.

This is way better than I remember it being. Not that I ever disliked it, I just remember not liking this as much as some of their other stuff. Might bump my rating a bit



Also the first few pages of this thread are fucking gold lol

Cradle Robber -> Harlot -> Dissolution Ritual might be my favorite three-song streak by these Revocation guys. All of them are insanely good.



Awesome album.

I just read them, think I may now have an infectious disease. God there are some elitist douches out there, some of which are salty for all the wrong reasons. For the record I like this, these guys are fun, they riff hard & add a few intriguing twists and turns to keep things interesting. I can also appreciate both glossy and raw production as it completely depends on the artist.

Digging: Fire! Orchestra - Arrival

Yeah some people are just nuts. Anything with clean production is automatically garbage, but like you said, in reality it depends on the music. There's a lot of music with clean production I don't think would sound good with "dirty" production and vice-versa.



I don't get why some people have a problem liking both older and modern dm. Like those people can't even criticize the music, it's just "is it modern? is the production clean? 2/5". Whatever, if people wanna miss out on good music over some dumb shit like that it don't affect me any. Still entertaining to read though lol

Yeah. More polished production can suck, of course it can, but we shouldn't be dealing in absolutes. I don't get the whole OSDM purist crowd, the types who appear happy to dismiss anything outside of their narrow-minded preferences. The only 'new' stuff they like is heavily ingrained in the past and adheres to these principals of how it 'should' sound. It's not just DM, happens in BM/thrash as well, although that's less noticeable for me, probably because I frequent those threads less often.

Some people just like their metal recorded in a lav through an amplifier as old as me nan. Leave them be.

I'm not saying it isn't acceptable to have such a preference, just that it shouldn't be the ONLY way. Diversify a little, open your mind etc.

After I read your comment, that disappointment you get from a missed opportunity started to overwhelm me. Your decision was justified.

Can't say I agree with the negative comments about the clean production, but I understand why it'd be a huge turnoff for some.



Listen to a lot of modern thrash, melodeath and tech-death and the music sometimes almost has a plastic-y, harmless and toyish sound, and it makes generic/uninspired compositions (for example: Megadeth's Dystopia) almost grating to listen to (not that the music would be much better with old school production values, but the modern production is a huge problem there, especially the overproduced drums, full of triggers).



But as you guys said, it depends on the music and the artist. I don't think this album would sound good with dirty production.



To keep the thread on topic, I gotta get back into this album. I recall digging the non-strictly-thrash-and-death-metal references and passages (Harlot, Dissolution Ritual, The Watchers), which for some reason stopped being so prominent in the band's sound as they released more albums (especially the last two). Strange.



Edit: Wow now that was a long-ass comment, longer than what I'm used to post here.
