3.0 goodzaruyache | May 25th 19

More melodic, but not quite as good as Flesh Cathedral.

Svartidaudi's RotRS is simply put a masterclass in modern bm. Agression, melody, dissonance, atmosphere, technicality, every element that molded and morphed the genre since its inception has been carefully studied and implemented to perfection by the band. Every note played, skins beaten and throat ruined has it's place within the carefully crafted tracks. That Icelandic scene is surely in good hands

Don't expect this to be as good as their debut. Still pretty great though

3.5 greatTheSpirit CONTRIBUTOR | November 26th 18

I'm giving the benefit of the doubt that Revelations of the Red Sword will grow on me. The
band's hesitation to commit to either a wholly melodic or wholly chaotic sound stifles their
potential. It's not that they have to fully commit either, but there's a palpable sense of
uncertainty present, hanging over their tortured instrumentals just as much as the occult
atmosphere they're trying to curate. This is me being a bit harsh however, as this is overall a
very enjoyable listen. Guitars twist and wind at their own volition to create forms of diabolical
splendor while Sturla howls incantations of infernal damnation as if he were the mouth of Satan
itself. Despite its few flaws Revelations of the Red Sword is the soundtrack to calamity,
and a worthy follow-up to the ever-esteemed efforts of Flesh Cathedral
