REVOCATION's 'Communion' Song Featured In 'Power Rangers' Movie

"Communion", a song from the the Boston, Massachusetts-based technical metal act REVOCATION, will be featured in the upcoming "Power Rangers" movie. Fans in America can hear the track when the film is released in theaters on March 24.

"Communion" is taken from REVOCATION's latest album, "Great Is Our Sin", which was released last July via Metal Blade.

Having delivered five killer albums boasting some of the most potent, technical and abrasive metal unleashed over the last decade, it would be easy for REVOCATION to sit back and rest upon their laurels. However, with their constant drive to push their sound ever forward and refusal to compromise their integrity, this could never be the case — and "Great Is Our Sin" is their most dynamic, boundary-pushing and weighty release to date.

When it came time for the follow up to 2014's "Deathless", the quartet had their work cut out for them, and their response to the challenge is a record that grabs you by the throat and refuses to let go. Never forcing anything, the songs that would comprise "Great Is Our Sin" came together organically, and while the members being spread all around North America would have been an impediment to some, REVOCATION drew strength from it.

Reuniting with producer Chris "Zeuss" Harris (HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL), who also helmed "Deathless" and 2012's "Teratogenesis" EP, the record packs the requisite punch, yet retains the organic feel with which it was conceived. Known for their technical prowess, the band remained dedicated to upping the ante without ever losing sight of the importance of good songwriting.

While the songs come together to make for a cohesive record that is engaging from front to back, they are further united by the lyrical concept penned by Davidson. The title itself appropriated from Charles Darwin's quote: "If the misery of the poor be caused not by the laws of nature, but by our institutions, great is our sin", Davidson went about building a theme that was not only fittingly expansive, but also had real resonance with regard to contemporary society. "The concept revolves around the folly of man throughout the ages," he said. "Some themes come from historical references that are hundreds of years old, yet sadly these themes are still very relevant today due to mankind's refusal to learn from the lessons history has taught us, time and time again."

Regardless of the state of the world, nothing is going to slow REVOCATION down any time soon. Whilst the lineup has changed over the ten years the band has been in existence, Davidson's passion has never waned, and they are arguably sounding better than ever as they look toward the future. "We can't wait to bring these songs out on the road and perform them for different audiences all over the world," he said. "'Great Is Our Sin' is a new chapter for the band, and collectively we feel that it is our defining record to date."

Next week, REVOCATION will play select shows in Canada, as well as appear in Rhode Island, before heading out on a full USA tour with MORBID ANGEL, SUFFOCATION and WITHERED in May/June.
