Salvation of Innocents

Salvation of Innocents is the eighth album by American metalcore band Earth Crisis, released in March 2014 by Candlelight Records. According to the band's vocalist, Karl Buechner, it is their first album entirely dedicated to animal rights and anti-vivisection.[1] A new comic book of the Liberator series published by Black Mask Studios has been made in collaboration with the band and released simultaneously with the album, sharing similar conceptual ideas and artwork.[2]

Critical reception[edit]

Salvation of Innocents received positive reviews from music critics.[3][4] Sam Mendez of Ultimate Guitar wrote that while musically the album didn't stand out from the band's previous records, the decision to create a concept album lyrically focused on one social issue made it worthwhile for animal rights activists as well as old and new listeners of Earth Crisis.[5]
