This is an album, that had you never heard of Vomitory before, you would likely pass up if you saw it at your local store due solely to the cover art. It looks quite amateurish; more likely the product of someone's home color printer than something that would be used by a major band signed to a major label. If you have actually done this, however, you made a very big mistake. This album kills!
Revelation Nausea is brutal death metal at its absolute finest. Unfortunately, it, like almost all other death metal, it is nothing you haven's really heard before, and it's quite easy to point out the band's primary influences. In this case I'm thinking a little bit of Dissection, and a LOT of Bolt Thrower. The well-placed melodies and often militaristic-sounding drums just scream Bolt Thrower's name. Vomitory, however, are certainly not a perfect carbon copy though, as they are generally both heavier and faster. My only real complaint is that at times the production is a bit too muddy, but for the most part it really fits the album well.
This is the direction I would like to see a lot more bands go in, and hopefully bring some fresh ideas with them. Until then, I am going to be more than happy to continue listening to Revelation Nausea. If you like death metal, than your collection is simply not complete without this album. There's nothing more to say.
