So far Krisiun have not made a bad album. 6 May 2006
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Every one of this band's CD's bleeds pure Death Metal. This one is no exception. Too many blast beats, not enough of this or that ... blah blah blah. I find it hard to believe that all of Krisiun's other releases are all almost 5 star ratings and this one falls short because not enough fans who do think it kicks ass failed to put in the review for the band. These guys are right up there with Nile, Kataklysm, Morbid Angel, Deicide, and more Death Metal giants. Enough said. And don't forget to get their latest, AssassiNation, possibly the best yet.

Production is poop but Music is excellent. 19 Feb. 2003
By Eric Eilers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've always been a fan of poopy production like Turmoil's album From Bleeding Hands. Krisiun changed the way they sound, when I heard it I couldn't believe they did what they did but it's perfect. The bass drum sounds like the drummer has a double bass pedal hooked up to a garbage can (I love it).
Other than the production, there are some great riffs on this album. Ultimate speed. Just preview the second track and you will be amazed at the riffs in it.
This album is speedy and down right brutal, but thats what you get from a band that grew up listening to Slayer-Show No Mercy and Morbid Angel-Alters of Madness.

Excellent Blast-Death 21 May 2000
By "sadistik" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this is Death metal of the high-speed, high-quality sort. There are some reasons I won't give this more than three stars. First of all, the production is not as clear as everyone says.The guitar solos are somewhat buried in the mix, and the drums are not as far up in the mix as on the first album. Secondly, even though this is a raging, brutal album, it doesn't even come close to the intesity of Krisiun's debut masterpiece Black Force Domain. Get that first, then this one. This is great stuff, no doubt, but Krisiuns done better before.

great for brutal death metal fans 7 Mar. 2006
By video juegas! - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
why did this album get such a low score, look if all of the other krisiun albums get 5s why not this, it's just more of the same. Blinding speed blast beats, and obvious amount of skill and stamina by the musicians. These Brazilians have definatly earned there reputation. So long story short. If you're even remotely interested in brutal death metal, I recommend you pick this one up, and for that matter, all of the others.
dark horse classic, overshadowed by its surrounding albums 4 Nov. 2011
By AngeldeathGreg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Krisiun's 2nd album, Apocalyptic Revelation, is probably one of the most criminally under-appreciated albums in modern death metal. Its completely understandable that, sandwhiched between such "mainstream" classics as the storming "Black Force Domain" and the complex brutality of "Conquerors of Armageddon". However, this album is equally as accomplished and enjoyable to listen to. As a matter of fact, I would declare this to be the best record with which to introduce Krisiun to someone.

First off, the straight-ahead blasting brutality of "Black Force Domain" is still present here. Apocalyptic Revelation can be thought of as a development of what Krisiun offered with BFD: raw blasting brutality, interspersed with moments of chugging piledriver buildups and kill-grooves (see "Aborticide..." and "Meaning of Terror") as well as some quite eerie, almost black metal speed-picking riffs, an aspect of early Krisiun which imo most people overlook. The development comes in the form of a more focused approach to the songwriting and arrangements. Black Force Domain is kind of a sprawling, wild beast spurting out blasphemous grime without reallllly having a consistent focus throughout all the songs; Apocalyptic Revelation is the maturation of this, being more to-the-point and logical in the riff destination. I guess you could say that they KNOW more of what they're trying to accomplish; there is less extraneous material.

But this also points to where they went with Conquerors, because you can see the band sort of awakening to their own power and potential, sort of like "Oh! We can do THIS, and if we do this riff then we can do THAT, and it would go into THIS and then we can come back to THAT" etc etc. They're realizing the command they have over their instruments and the music itself. By having a greater command and understanding of the dynamics of musical flow, they're able to expand their arrangements without incorporating unnecessary filler sections.

However, as good as this album is, there are a few detracting points. First off, the guitars are pretty muddy. For an album with such good production, the guitar tone is just very murky. You kind of have to struggle to make out the riffs, but this is actually kind of cool because you end up appreciating the bass guitar which is more visible. Instead of "hearing" the melody and harmonic movement, you kind of "feel" it. Its kind of like a vibration underneath the rythmic pounding, which is an interesting experience when trying to analyze the music.

The other thing is that theres a little less variety in the music; it almost seems like they kind of wanted to put out another exclamation-point of an album to bludgeon their listeners. Some people may love it, some people may be turned off by it. This is kind of tied in with the production, because the variety that IS there is kind of obscured, or smoothed over. You have to listen to it a few times before you really start understanding "oh, yeah... they are doing more than just blastbeating". However, this characteristic makes the few blatant diversions much more effective. Its why songs like "Kings of Killing," "Meaning of Terror," and "Aborticide (In The Crypts of Holiness)" are able to stand out from the rest, as well as the wonderful instrumental metal tune "March of the Black Hordes".

All in all, though, this is a great record, and one which CLEARLY deserves much more praise. I mean, "Meaning of Terror" may be the most brutal and bare-bones 2 minutes of death metal since Morbid Angel's "Day of Suffering". Nothing compares to the slamming build-up and thrash-kill groove of that song.

So, in some ways, this is truly their "Blessed Are The Sick" or "Breeding the Spawn": the 2nd album by a band whose 1st and 3rd releases generally garner the most attention (Altars of Madness/Covenant for Morbid Angel and Effigy of the Forgotten/Pierced From Within for Suffocation).

Easily a solid 90, and an album with which you undeniably should familiarize yourself with if you like Krisiun, Morbid Angel, Deicide or death metal in general.
