Sanguinary Vivification track listing:

1. “Immanuel”

6. “By His Wounds We Are Healed”

The lyrics for each song derive from actual scripture in the Books of Isaiah, the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, as well as the Book of Revelation!

The album features the renowned American power metal vocalist, George Tsalikis of ZANDELLE in addition to songwriter, rhythm guitarist and bass guitarist Ryan "The Archangel" Darnell, lead guitarist Josh Cirbo and drummer Ryan Mey.
