The debut from German one man band Sophicide has been released on the Willowtip Bandcamp. Perdition Of The Sublime combines pummeling and intricate technical death metal with the smooth melodicism of melodic death metal. There's enough progressive passages, sudden stops and starts, acoustic interludes, and blistering technical riffing to satisfy a jaded tech death fan; but it all comes together as parts of a whole. I agree with Angry Metal Guy's assessment that
While the songwriting is stellar, the thing that takes this record from just being well-written songs, with technical flare and crushing riffs is the excellent guitar workFluid neo-classical soloing, that is often multilayered and always beautiful. Check it out, Sophicide is a great addition to the Willowtip roster.
