If you’ve been waiting for more from Rev Theory after they teasingly
released the single "
Justice" a few months ago, then your wait is nearly
over. The third studio album, also titled
Justice, will be released next
week on Tues., Feb. 15. Fans shouldn't be disappointed with the new
album produced by Terry Date (Pantera, Soundgarden, Deftones)--
Justice delivers with hard-hitting vocals and edgy guitar playing. Justice
is diverse as well, ranging from kick ass in your face rock songs to
slower songs with a soulful vibe. Songs like "Dead in a Grave,"
"Hangman," and "Loaded Gun" showcase Rev Theory’s harder edge
while songs like "Fire," "Say Goodbye," and "Hollow Man" (which upon
hearing made me think “is this even the same band?”) illustrate that Rev
Theory is just as capable performing slower, more emotional lyric driven
songs, as well. Several songs on the album are definitely radio worthy
(with an occasional F-word edit) and a few candidates that stick out as
especially worthy include "Say Goodbye," "Dead in a Grave," the title
track, "Justice," and my personal favorite "Fire." I suspect "Hangman"
will also pick up steam with it being an alternate song used by WWE
Smackdown. Rarely do I find a CD that I could pop in and listen to the
whole thing from beginning to end, but with
Justice that is exactly what
I did. The album proves that Rev Theory has no intention of backing down
with their hard, edgy sound anytime soon. Rating:
