You guys are being generous with those 2.5’s

This is some of the most generic stuff I’ve heard

I thought this was pretty decent. First half was quite boring, but thankfully it got more interesting after the title track. Improvement over the last album for sure.

I've wanted to like them since chaos of forms, which was about as close as I got. Some nice riffs here and there, but for whatever reason they just never clicked with me.

Agreed, no surprises or novelties here, just consistent quality Revo - minus the bursts of inspiration and creativity they still had on Deathless and Great Is Our Sin.

T/t seems to be everyone's favorite but Ex Nihilo is the one standout track imo.

As much as I love these guys and have loved their past few albums, I think they’re seriously running out of ideas. That first single they put out was terrible and I was really hoping the album wouldn’t fall under the same pitfalls, but honestly this is just really generic stuff. We’ve been teased for a year now that this is some of the “most death metal” they’ve ever sounded but in the process of doing so they created some of their most boring and hokey stuff to date. The death metal shift is really contrived and undeveloped. Admittedly this isn’t a terrible thing, but this was like listening to an entry level death metal album. Are these guys trying to sound like a heavier Death? Do they even know what kind of a band they want to be? Nothing here really blew me away except for maybe the second track. But I enjoyed it for the most part despite having such high hopes. It’s not a terrible album just really really bland for them.

I'm like halfway through this so far and tbh I'm not seeing why some people are having a problem with it. Will probably end up 3.5 or 4ing it. It's pretty sick so far.

"Davidson is a really talented player, but this band isn't good"

correct, being talented doesn't mean you're good at composing

often times people who are technically proficient need someone to do the writing for them

do you think beethoven became well known because he went through a bunch of notes really fast?

No, it was the breadth, the uniqueness, the innovation, the clarity.

In the words of Elon Musk 'i don't need to be able to program or engineer, i just come up with the idea and i tell the programmers and engineers what to do'

Yes, its the ideas that we need! Not the followers! Ideas are scarce, followers are plentiful.

Yeah but I mean I don't really listen to bands like Revocation for crazy innovation. It's not that kind of music and that's OK. It's just awesome death/thrash.
