On the album announcement, guitarist Chris Basile comments: "When you write an album like Sermon of Mockery, it's like Moby Dick with this giant whale that you have to conquer. I spent over two decades throwing harpoons and missing every time. Gravitas Maximus goes right through the heart of the whale and kills it dead. Along with everything else."

Now entering their fourth decade, the quintet return heavier and stronger than ever, proving once again to be one the most important forces in extreme music.

Gravitas Maximus was recorded at Chapel Sound Recording Studios, aka "The Chapel," Long Island, New York by Chris Basile, and mixed and mastered by Miguel Teresso at Demigod Recording Studio, Portugal.

Gravitas Maximus track listing:

1. We are Many
2. Apostles to the Grave
3. The Day the Earth Shook (Survival of the Fittest)
4. Pawn to King
5. The Art of Infamy
6. Rule of 2
7. Bludgeoned by Deformity
8. Gravitas Maximus
