SULLVATION - The Beginning of the End - Reviewed By Metal Digest ! Check it out here https://metal-digest.com/2024/01/25/sullvation-the-beginning-of-the-end/
As the brainchild of Brent Sullivan, Sullvation (see what he did there?) have released their debut album ‘The Beginning of the End’. Now, Sullivan has a resume longer than your arm, but this album sees him stepping into his own. What Sullvation deliver here is a raw, but enjoyable album that isn’t afraid to lean on progressive, power or trad metal to make its point. Although this release is raw and it doesn’t do anything that hasn’t been done before, Sullivan shows that he is a multi-talented class act musician with plenty more to offer. Metal Digest

Notes from iconic bands reminiscent of Judas Priest, Metal Church and even Slayer ring throughout. Joining Sullivan is long-time friend and former bandmate Chuck White (ex-Ion Vein and more).
Sullivan recruited some of his favorite local Chicagoland musicians, assembling a small tribute to local talent. Treating metal fans to a variety of strong melodic vocal performances the album soars with talented metal singers including the infamous Tim “Ripper” Owens adding a special treat between tours.
