Today, Swedish technical death metal faction, SORPEPTION, hurls forth a blazing play-through video for the track “A Speach To Survival.” The tune comes by way of the band’s Engineering The Void full-length, released last year via Unique Leader Records. A scrupulously-executed display of methodical genius, Engineering The Void spouts a wholly sophisticated barrage of Meshuggian riff sequences, obscure time signatures, head-jarring rhythms, and intervals of orchestral enormity all backed by the calloused growls of lead throat Fredrik Söderberg.
Notes Gear Gods simply: “The note density is so high that if I add even a few more words the internet will collapse in on itself.”

The clip comes in conjunction with the band’s impending US live overthrow supporting Canadian death metal icons, Cryptopsy and US death metallers, Disgorge. The Metal Injection-sponsored stretch of shows will stomp through eighteen cities from May 14th through May 31st. Additional support will come from Canadian black metal unit, Erimha and Ohio death metallers, The Convalescence.

“…an example of tech-death guitar work at its finest.” – No Clean Singing
“..the horn-o’-plenty of riffdom smashed onto this album will be irresistible.” – Last Rites
“These dudes play seriously gnarly technical death metal to the level where you might need a physics degree just to headbang to it. You can hear them constructing the framework of the abyss as Engineering The Void runs its course, culminating in the title track – at which point they push the button and the whole thing implodes. For a band on their second full-length, they’ve figured this sound out pretty well.” – Decibel
“The Swedes in SOREPTION are up there with Obscura, Gorod and Psycroptic at the upper echelon of the crowded tech-death pack, no doubt.” – MetalSucks
“This album came out at me like a fist through the wall, but it was indeed the first of some cybernetic android from the future that sought to teach me all of the universes’ hidden secrets. And that’s exactly what the album feels like… a highly calculated and whimsically wizened fist.” – New Noise Magazine
“…mechanical precision and jaw-dropping chops still have their place in death metal. These are messy times, but they’re futuristically so. Metal fans are far more likely to battle information overload on a daily basis than they are to fight monsters or serial killers. Sweden’s SOREPTION provide a compelling soundtrack for the daily grind.” – Invisible Oranges
