AMENTA, THE - Revelator CD
"Revelator" the fourth full-length from Australia’s THE AMENTA is the culmination of nearly 20 years’ collective experimentation in nonconformist, dissonant, dynamic and electronically-lacerated Death Metal.
THE AMENTA have used their 7-year hiatus to methodically deconstruct and reimagine their already distinctive core sound: incorporating maximalist Industrial Black Metal ballast, disturbingly cinematic Ambient/Noise textures, treated violin, dread acoustics and circuit-bent electronics into a labyrinthine set of infectious hymns to societal collapse which juxtapose dreamlike moments of strange calm with sensory overload, savage discord and unease.
Recorded by the band and mixed by guitarist Erik Miehs, "Revelator" is the most openly organic and crushing the band has sounded to date. Mastering has been meticulously crafted by Maor Applebaum (FAITH NO MORE, SEPULTURA) and the album features artwork by the legendary Metastazis (MORBID ANGEL, BEHEMOTH). Graced with an incisively dynamic pummelling from drummer-extraordinaire David Haley (PSYCROPTIC, ex-PESTILENCE) and an avowedly contemporary, genre-defying performance from vocalist Cain Cressall, "Revelator" sees a band always dead-set on boundary-pushing revelling in a fresh sense of renewal as they combine harrowing conceptuals, inventively virtuosic musicianship and immediate songcraft into the landmark record of a lauded career.
Comes in a 6-panel digipack with a 12-page booklet. First batch comes in black polycarbonate CD.
