Review: Soreption - Engineering The Void (2014)

Artist: Soreption
Album: Engineering The Void
Genre: Technical Death Metal

01 – Reveal The Unseen
02 – The Nature Of Blight
03 – Breaking The Great Narcissist
04 – A Speach To Survival
05 – Utopia
06 – Monumental Burden
07 – I Am You
08 – Engineering the Void

Mechanical, brutal, and technical are the words that come to mind when I think of Soreption. Those words definitely ring true of their past albums. This new one is no exception, but there is one word I would add to that list: Certainty because I am certain this album will rape your ears. There is definitely a lot of structure to their madness. They have added catchy lyrics with hooks to them that I fully enjoy. This album is definitely their best work. Soreption are another shining example of textbook technical death metal done right. You can definitely hear earlier Decapitated influence in Anton Svedin’s riffing style. Trevor Strnad from The Black Dahlia Murder has a cool guest vocal spot on the album’s title track. Engineering the Void pummels its listener consistently and effectively; it is definitely one of my favorite releases of 2014. This is the year for metal and more specifically, technical death metal.
