Formed in 2005 in Sundsvall, Sweden, SOREPTION is a Technical Death Metal band from Sweden having razor sharp technical riffs, schizophrenic time signatures topped with catchy chugging grooves and intense vocals. They have created their signature sound not yet replicated by any other modern band with a strong following to back.
Released in 2010, the band's debut full-length, "Deterioration Of Minds", was mixed and produced by Tommy Rehn from symphonic black metal collective ANGTORIA at Ninetone Studios and brought major attention to the band as a formidable force in the genre.
SOREPTION has been 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), and quickly earned critical acclaim from the underground elite.
"Deterioration Of Minds" was reissued by Unique Leader Records in 2014, and their long awaited punishing new album "Engineering the Void" was released February 2014 on Unique Leader Records.
MetalSucks gushes, "The new SOREPTION album is going to rip faces. I mean hot damn! Those riffs! 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 Sings calls the record "an example of tech-death guitar work at its finest," while Last Rites opines, "the horn-o'-plenty of riffdom smashed onto this album will be irresistible."
Adds 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."
"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," Adds Decibel Magazine.
