Great Reversals
Drawing inspiration from bands like Trial and Bane, meld dense riffs, soaring melody, raw emotion, and reflective lyrics with hopes of replicating the spirit of 90s hardcore that is the foundation for their sound. Located in Detroit, Michigan they have been playing regularly since late 2009, opening for national acts such as Agnostic Front, Mother of Mercy, Foundation, Defeater, Former Thieves, Another Breath, and Run With The Hunted. With a 5 song demo and self-released split 7" with They Come in Waves in their catalogue, has recorded their most progressive and emotionally complicated release with "To the Ends of the Earth", 4 songs lyrically centered on their drummer's struggle to raise his deaf, autistic son. These tracks are the personification of angst, grief, hope, and perseverance amidst dismal circumstances.
