Phoenix, AZ-based experimental sludge/post metal band SORXE released their new full-length, Matter & Void via Prosthetic Records! Sheila talks with Sorxe about the new music and what's in store for 2018.
SORXE rely heavily on improvisation, pulling ideas from an eclectic well of inspiration ranging from Neurosis, Swans, Melvins and Pink Floyd. SORXE consists of guitarist/vocalist Tanner Crace, drummer Shane Ocell, and two bassists - Christopher Coons and Jonathan Portnoy, who tread new psychedelic ground into the unknown.
SORXE was formed in 2012 when Crace and Ocell decided to get together and jam and instantly hit it off. They quickly pieced together the beginnings of their first few songs, and realizing the potential, they recruited two bassists to bring the thunderous layers of low-end evident on Matter & Void. The band has shared the stage with many amazing bands including and not limited to Helms Alee, Torche, Truck Fighters, A Storm of Light, Kvelertak, Black Tusk, Yob and Neurosis.
