Revisionist is the second full-length from Brooklyn avant-post-metal
outfit Sannhet (the word means “truth” in Norwegian) and their
first for The Flenser. Founded in late 2010, the instrumental trio has
amassed a diehard audience within the borough’s broad underground
music circuit through their numerous live performances, always choreographed
with electrifying visuals. Sannhet released their sprawling
debut full-length Known Flood in February of 2013 on Sacrament,
the record label run by the co-owner of legendary Brooklyn bar
/ venue St. Vitus.
Continuing where Known Flood leaves off, Revisionist delivers
an epic, trance-inducing concoction of math-metal intricacy, prismatic
pop shimmer, and dense metallic crush. Dynamic indie rockisms
and the metal-gaze sound of like-minded combos Deafheaven
or Alcest are distilled into concise song structures. At the same time,
Sannhet offers the powerful emotiveness of instrumental post-rock
acts like Explosions in the Sky or Godspeed You! Black Emperor,
packing just as many musical ideas and majestic heights into a compact
blast.
Revisionist was mixed by Andrew Schneider (Unsane, Converge,
Red Sparrows) and mastered by Carl Saff (Forest Swords, Guided by
Voices, Pygmy Lush).

“Sannhet makes music that largely defies categorization—it’s epic,
cinematic stuff; its complex instrumentation is employed in the service
of soaring, breathtaking music.” —Stereogum
“… welds the power of black metal, sludge metal, and grindcore to the
structures and orders of post-rock and post-punk.” —Pitchfork
“…Sannhet’s tools are dynamics and texture, deployed over simple
melodic arcs… Instru-metal succeeds when it remember that it’s metal.”
—Decibel
“… soaring post-rock with elements of black metal tremolo-picking,
hardcore, and more. Think Russian Circles meets Altar of Plagues.”

the influential Brooklyn metal scene
