Technical death metal legion, SOREPTION, are readying to unleash their new studio full-length, Engineering The Void via Unique Leader. Check out the latest album teaser below. Pick up the pieces of your face later.
Comments the band on their recent union with Unique Leader: “We are stoked about signing this deal with Unique Leader and to finally release the new album Engineering The Void. The fans have been waited long enough and now itÂ´s time to unleash this fucker!”
Formed in 2005 in Sundsvall, Sweden, SOREPTION hurls forth a bone-shattering onslaught of sharp technical riff sequences, schizophrenic time shifts, thick catchy grooves and ravaging vocals. Released in 2010, the band’s debut full-length, Deterioration Of Minds, was produced and mixed by brothers Tommy and Chris Rehn from symphonic black metal collective Angtoria at Ninetone Studios and, commended for their “superior sense of rhythm and razor-sharp precision that will appeal to fans of bands such as Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation, Dying Fetus and The Faceless” (Underrated Reviews), quickly earned critical acclaim from the underground elite. Elaborated Global Domination in an 8/10 review of the record, “The tech-death phenomenon leaves no room for error or soul. It’s all about technical riffs and arrangements, not to mention the quantized-to-hell drums and cleaned up stops and gos. But if you are into this genre, it’s hardly because you want hear soulful playing or actual human groove; no – you expect precision and impressive musicianship. And that is exactly what you get with SOREPTION.”
SOREPTION will unleash their follow-up, Engineering The Void, in early 2014 followed by a reissue of Deterioration Of Minds, both via Unique Leader Records. Official worldwide street dates and further info to be announced in the coming weeks.
“If there was one band…which had to be picked as the representative for what tech death is turning into, this would be it…” – Ultimate Guitar
“…this album kicked my balls hard on the first listen, completely tore them off during the second, made clam chowder soup with them on its third play-through, and threw said scolding chowder in my face during the fourth. Suffice to say, this album was quite the tasty shock.” – Metal Observer
