Anthony Fox Super cool throwback thrash/death album with some of the best mixing in of prog elements without making a prog album I’ve ever heard. This is very good extreme metal that could have been made in the late 80’s but then you just get prog touches with some of the elements in parts, harmonies or subtle keys or tempo or time signature changes, but it all gets you to the next heavy element. Early 2024 strong album. Favorite track: Counter Tech.

dissonant_ways Those still reeling from the hangover of such a phenomenal set of releases from last year better watch out. 2024 is already off to a super strong start with such albums as Altered Realities. Fans of Voivod, Veltor and Morbus Chron etc. should look no further! Favorite track: Absence of Unity.

DNAcorruption Really looking forward to this one, Sovereign’s ‘Neurotic’ was brilliant and if ‘Altered Reality/Counter Tech’ is anything to go by then they’ve definitely improved as a band.
Sexy tape colour too! Nice one Dark Descent. Favorite track: Altered Reality.

about

A full-length offering of Sovereign’s lethal blend of evil death/thrash is set to be unshackled via Dark Descent Records!

Formed in Oslo 2018 AD, the band have three releases under their belts: Iron Cast (single 2018), Sovereign (demo, 2019), and Neurotic (EP, 2020). Three years in the making, the time has finally come to complete the set with debut album Altered Realities. A monstrous masterwork of old school extreme metal ecstasy.

“Altered Realities is a product of an ever-evolving journey we have taken as a band, from our start in 2018 and culminating in the album's recording in early 2022,” reflects lead guitarist Tommy Jacobsen. He is joined in the band by former Nocturnal Breed band-mate Vidar Fineidet (guitar), alongside drummer Cato Syversrud, and bassist/vocalist Gravskjender.

“We strive to push ourselves, both in terms of speed and technicality, whilst still keeping a groove and dynamic. Our approach to death/thrash is an interplay between fast-paced aggression and a
slower, more groove-oriented feel. The lyrical themes of the album mirror events and unrest that happened during the time of writing and is in itself a journey.”

For fans of Nekromantheon, early Sepultura, Pestilence, Dark Angel, Demolition Hammer…
