Gateway to the doom/sludge/stoner/rock underground, The Obelisk, opens a portal to the mammoth closing number from SORXE’s debut LP, Surrounded By Shadows, with the more than eight minute-long, The Mountain Man.
“SORXE‘s Surrounded By Shadows draws on the best elements left from the largely washed out post-metal movement. They tradeoff atmospherics and churning, crushing riffs, vary their approach widely, and toy with structures and builds to create a full-album sensibility that each individual song feeds into.

The album-opener Steamroller is also playing at Cvlt Nation HERE.
SORXE will independently release Surrounded By Shadows via digital download and digipak CD on September 2nd, 2014. Digital pre-orders are now posted, including an instant download of Steamroller, HERE. The CD will be available for pre-order shortly.
Comprised of former members of Graves At Sea, Via Vengeance, Magnetplan, Daughters Of Fission and more, SORXE’s dynamic assault is fueled by two and multiple styles of layered vocals. A sprawling, diverse eruption of crushing doom, at times incredibly beautiful and tranquil, and at others overwhelmingly harrowing, its earthmoving riffs penetrated with undertones of grunge, psychedelic and ambient textures, Surrounded By Shadows was recorded by the band’s Tanner Crace in multiple sessions in June 2013 at Francisco Studios and February through June 2014 at The Vaulted Owl, the album mastered by Byron Villain Recording. Boasting a wide range of well-crafted tracks comparable in does along the way to Neurosis, Ufomammut, Yob, Hull and others, the album’s cover art was constructed by Josh Graham.
SORXE is confirmed to perform at Tucson-based Southwest Terror Fest III: The Western Front, opening the main stage of the Rialto Theatre on Saturday, October 18th, supporting Author & Punisher, The Body, and headliners, Neurosis. Preceding SWTF, SORXE will trek through the Southwest with Godhunter, the dates to be announced in the coming days.
