Revelation are a band from Maryland that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very progressive form of doom metal and this is a review of their 1991 album "Salvation's Answer" which was re-issued in 2014 by Shadow Kingdom Records.
The album starts out with a very slow, heavy and dark sound along with some melody and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them which also leads up to traces of psychedelia before adding in melodic vocals and the album goes into a doom metal direction as well as adding fast parts in certain sections of the recording.
As the album continues the band start to a more traditional doom metal sound while also bringing in a good amount of melody and progressive elements and in certain sections of the recording the band brings in some clean playing and acoustic guitars while also keeping around a great amount of the heavier parts.
With this album Revelation remained to a more traditional doom metal sound while also being very progressive at the time time which was not very trendy at the time it was released when death and thrash metal ruled the underground and this is a very underrated album from the early 90's.
Song lyrics cover darkness and religion themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording along with some of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this was a very great sounding album from Revelation and if you are a fan of progressive and traditional doom metal, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Lost Innocence" "Paradox" and "Long After Midnight". 8 out of 10.
