Revocation - Teratogenesis
Unlike Arsis, Revocation might be hitting a huge stride in the quality of their releases. Their last album is magnificent, although it took me a few listens to feel that way. This EP is almost solid all the way through. "The Grip Tightens" might be one of my favorite songs of the year (and undoubtedly the best video of the year) and "Maniacally Unleashed" sounds like it could be off of their album "Existence Is Futile." There's no compromise for speed or technical ability here - Revocation put everything they had into this EP.
