New NYC band playing disgusted and desperate disbeat with added frustration and noise! Neckbreaker punk!

Our take: Roach Leg Records brings us another slice of raw and manic noise from their home base of New York City. On their debut tape, SØRDÏD does a great job of giving us what we want from a nasty noise-punk record while subtly expanding on the formula. The higher frequencies are totally fried and distorted (as they should be), but the bass and drums have a rich sound, keeping your feet moving and your fist pumping through tracks like the crushing “Idle Hope” and the stumbling, Disorder-influenced “Blankhead.” While SØRDÏD might sound like by the book noise-punk at first listen, there are more interesting bits peeking in around the edges, like the brief glimpse of burning spirits-style melody that pops up toward the end of “Last String” and the catchy, thrash metal-sounding bass riff that starts off “Idle Hope.” With a sound that will please both the trad and progressive wings of the noise-punk world, SØRDÏD’s demo is another excellent release from Roach Leg.
