SOREPTION released their Engineering The Void full-length last year via Unique Leader Records. A flawless, eight-track exhibit of methodical sonic deviance, Engineering The Void spouts a wholly sophisticated barrage of surgically accurate 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. Said Decibel Magazine of the offering, “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.” MetalSucks concurred noting, “The Swedes in SOREPTION are up there with Obscura, Gorod and Psycroptic at the upper echelon of the crowded tech-death pack, no doubt. No Clean Singing named the record, “an example of tech-death guitar work at its finest,” while Last Rites opined, “the horn-o’-plenty of riffdom smashed onto this album will be irresistible.” Added Invisible Oranges, “…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.”

Engineering The Void is currently available via Unique Leader Records at THIS LOCATION.
