Engineering the Void
Style: Technical Death Metal
Release date: 18 February, 2014
Playing time: 36:33

This Swedish band Soreption might be known to the readers, who are really into technical death metal. Their 2010 debut 'Deterioration of Minds' is a good album and if you don't own it yet, it will be re-issued by Unique Leader Records later this year. Soreption serves us technical riffage, a lot of aggression and this most of the time in a high tempo.

After the first spin bands like Spawn of Possession, Suffocation, Dying Fetus, Cannibal Corpse and Decapitated were just a few names crossing my brain. Fans of these bands will like this for sure. Frederik Söderberg growls everything together like it should be done. The other musicians deliver an excellent performance, the drumming is tight, the chainsaw riffs keep coming and especially in the slower parts they made me even think a bit of the band Necrophagist. In track six they surprise you with a short symphonic kind of part after which they continue their devastating music.

No more words need to be wasted, just a good album that should be picked up by any death metal lover, who likes it a bit complicated.
