SORTOUT have hit the heart of the Metalcore scene true to their band’s motto ‘ARISE. SORT OUT. OVERCOME.’ with their album “Conquer From Within”, released via Dr. Music Records in February, which has been skilfully produced by Daniel Thabet in New York’s Liquid Studios and has been perfectly mastered by Grammy winner Alan Douches (Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, Mastodon, Baroness).
The Austrians convinced not least with their terrific release show in front of more than 400 enthusiastic fans in their home area Dornbirn and more than 135.000 Spotify plays speak for themselves. SORTOUT are now going straight ahead and release their brand new single “Monuments” today, along with the impressive lyric video, for which they could win Very Metal Art designer Andy Pilkington, who has already worked with acts such as Skindred, Orden Ogan and Ascend The Hollow. “Monuments” combines epic Metalcore with staccato riffing and the targeted use of sensitive melodic vocals as a sharp contrast to the shouts. It is about dissatisfaction with the increasingly indifferent and insensitive consumer society. A situation that is all too obvious during this difficult time with the Coronavirus. Watch the audiovisual appeal to the voice of reason:
The new SORTOUT single “Monuments” is now available at the following download shops and streaming services: Amazon (DE) | Amazon (ES) | Amazon (FR) | Amazon (UK) | Amazon (US) | iTunes | Google Play | SMStracks | Spotify | Apple Music | Deezer | Tidal
SORTOUT enrich the Metalcore scene for over ten years now and released the EP “Shadow Slave” as well as the debut album “Burden Of Memories”. Many intensive shows have increased their fan base as well as their experience. The release of the debut was followed by a big European tour where SORTOUT played from the village pub to gigs with international metal greats such as Bullet For My Valentine, Amon Amarth, Trivium, Machine Head or Caliban. After some line-up changes the band today consists of vocalist and founding member Benjamin Herter, both guitarists Michael Geuze and Aaron Schedler as well as bassist Günter Meusburger and drummer André Hammerer.
SORTOUT are amplifying their sound on their sophomore album and have produced an exciting and vehemently powerful Metalcore album, which not only captivates the fans of the scene. The twelve varied songs, including the first single “Illusions” with its first-class music video, combine hard guitar riffs and shouts to a diversified and hard-hitting Metalcore sound. The five musicians create special sound moments, which resound even live for a long time.
The band’s influences are audibly multifaceted and range from inventive Melodic Death Metal to Hardcore intensity up to powerful Groove Metal effects. Designer Pavel Kurbanov (Jinjer, King Atlas, Bells & Ravens) is responsible for the elaborate artwork of the album, which is available as a precious Digipak at the following worldwide record stores or digital shops: Amazon (DE) | EMP | Nuclear Blast | Napalm Records | Hot Shot Records | Thalia | Saturn | Media Markt | Buecher.de | Weltbild | JPC | WOM | Grooves | CeDe | ExLibris | Moluna | Amazon (US) | MVD | Walmart | ElectricFetus.com | Barnes & Noble | Amazon (UK) | Plastic Head | Amazon (FR) | Season Of Mist | Fnac | Amazon (ES) | MondadoriStore.it | Bengans | Ginza | Target | iMusic.dk | CDON | Kroese-Online.nl | SuperShop.sk | Mercado Libre | HMV | Tower Records | Lohaco.jp | iTunes | Google Play | SMStracks | Spotify | Apple Music | Deezer | Tidal
