Great Reversals are a five piece band from Detroit, Michigan who formed in 2009.  I've been a long time fan of this band since first reviewing their earlier releases on Elementary Revolt and Manic Compression, so it's really cool to see how Great Reversals have evolved over the past eight years.  Great Reversals play a killer style of music that incorporates elements of modern hardcore, 90's influenced metallic hardcore, post hardcore, and post rock within their sound.  Musically, Great Reversals can be said to be influenced by bands such as Killing The Dream, Give Up The Ghost, Modern Life Is War, Quicksand, Burn, and other like-minded bands.  Since forming in 2009, Great Reversals have released a self-titled demo in November of 2009, a split 7" with They Come In Waves in October of 2010, a split 7" with Sunlight Ascending in January of 2014, a three song 7" titled Natural Burial in April of 2014, and a two song demo titled La Promo in October of 2015.  Mere Mortals is Great Reversals' debut full-length LP, which was released via Hydrogen Man records on May 1st, 2016.  On Mere Mortals, Great Reversals offer up eleven tracks of heavy as fuck sounding metallic hardcore, post hardcore, and post rock.  Overall, Mere Mortals is a killer LP and should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
