Releasing independently on 24th October, the forthcoming follow-up to Controversial’s 2014 debut ‘Inhuman’ seeks to further drive the band’s mission to deliver a fierce, high-tempo brand of metal that combines a tight, crushing sense of tension with dark, highly emotive themes.

The song "Revelation", which is the title track of the album, focuses on the attraction of the dark/evil and describes how difficult it is for humans to escape it. In a human society it seems so easy to spread hatred, fear and violence, while positive things/attitudes are desirable but hardly appreciated. The song refers to the gloomy in general, but also offers references to faith, the church in terms of freedom and fear, self-determination and coercion, which the construct "church" carries with it in many ways. Everyone is his own master and should reveal this certainty to himself. Our actions are in our hands.
This album is a classic of technical, progressive death. I enjoy it much more than many albums by the bigger name tech death bands, because it has an emotional effect that so many progressive or technical death metal albums lack. Human have never made a bad album, but on each release they have grown exponentially. This is in my number three spot for the year so far, under Algleymi and Achatius, two black metal albums. It’s that good. Reminds me of Clavicus Vile coming out of nowhere last year. Metallurgical Fire
