Sannhet are a band that must surely be benefiting from the exposure that comes from being an instrumental metal band with post-rock leanings in a post-Deafheaven world. If they're not, well then this review of mine ought to do the trick!! Anyway, enough hubris. This album is some seriously solid instrumental post-metal. Granted, there's a limited sonic palette on display, but when the instrumentation is so accomplished and the tracks are so heart-grippingly dramatic, who's gonna notice? Oh, YOU ... read more
Such an underrated album. The whole concept of the album is beautiful. It sounds deep and captivating and at the same time you can feel the power of the sounds. This is an album with no singles, what we've got here it's an epic series of events narrated with just guitars and drums. It's a "complete" album, a consistent work that should be talked about more.
Ever since Deafheavens masterpiece "Sunbather", I have tried to pay a bit more attention to the genre of black / post metal. Revisionist is easily the best I have heard in that period.
