Take your first listen to Revelation Theory’s debut, “Truth Is Currency” and you can conjure up countless bands to compare these guys to. If David Draiman of Disturbed mated with Alter Bridge’s Myles Kennedy and fronted a band influenced by nothing but Staind and Seether, you would have Revelation Theory. It’s true, this band is not covering any new bases. However, fans of the genre will find an album that is easy to pick up and listen to. Despite not being a very long effort at that, it is to the point and most importantly, just rocks.
There are ten songs on “Truth Is Currency.” Eight of them are hard-rocking ear candy. Two of them are modern-rock ballads — “Selfish And Cold” and “Over The Line.” Since these are the two songs that step outside the boundaries, they are by defualt the best of the album. But on the whole, it’s a solid listen. I wish I had more to say about it, but do the math. Ten songs plus a familair sound equals not much to say.
