As NYC-based heavy punk/hardcore hybrid act, SOS, comes within one week of releasing their fifth independent full-length, today online underground music community Stereokiller is streaming the entire Strength And Conditioning album.
SOS is a fusion of heavy sounds; a maniacal musical beast which flails madly yet seamlessly in all directions at once. Strength And Conditioning is a nearly forty-eight minute excursion into barrier-free musical chaos with heavy melodic grooves, recorded and mixed by Travis Harrison at Serious Business Studios, mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music. Lineup changes and a restructuring of the band followed by heavy-duty local performances for the past year formed a six-year gap between albums, but the band’s heavy dedication has paid off, as Strength And Conditioning boasts SOS’ most action-packed mayhem yet
