[r]evolution of a sun – Cork hardcore veterans reuniting for a good cause
What you may need to know…
01. At varying points throughout their over-decade-long run, Cork metal/hardcore band [r]evolution of a sun, anchored by Cork metal mainstays Noel Lynch, Christophe Erpelding, and Eoin Kelleher, had up to seven or eight members in a single live line-up.
02. They were ridiculously heavy, a reputation hammered home by three extended-players, the highlight of which is 2007’s Sacrificehellroutine, and Hell, an album that was a decade in the making.
03. The aforementioned is available for streaming above, and free download from their Bandcamp. The album is an unloved belter also.
04. They return from retirement for a charity show on April 13th at Fred Zeppelin’s in Cork. A benefit gig for the family of much-missed engineer and producer Laurence White, the line-up also includes Bisect and Hope is Noise.
Thoughts: One of the heaviest, sludgiest, most unforgiving bands to ever surface on our island. Should be visceral to see again live.
