Hailing from Southern California, Sorizon delivers an original metal sound featuring vocals and riffage inspired by nearly everything heavy.
Even though they are serious about their metal, Sorizon's live show is a high octane party with plenty of antics and raging. Sorizon has shredded the stage with metal gods such as Diamond Head, Katatonia, HammerFall, Havok, Swallow the Sun, Primal Fear, Orphaned Land, Unleash the Archers, and more.
Keith McIntosh (vocals), Dr. Danny Mann (guitar), and Sean Elston (drums) began making metal in the band Joust in 2006. After a short but successful run, they decided get heavier and more progressive; thus spawned Sorizon in 2008. After a few lineup changes, Sorizon now rocks an undeniable chemistry with Tim Hall on guitar (since 2011) and Kevin Vickers on bass (since 2012). Reviewers have reported that Sorizon's albums “rival the better work of Symphony X” and "the guitarists compliment each other like not many bands have done; Maiden and Priest come to mind.”
2020 will bring Sorizon's third full-length album, Thanatos Rising, featuring glorious artwork painted by Eliran Kantor (Testament, Iced Earth, Sodom). This album's themes resonate the world this year: death, fear of the unknown, and the hope of renewal. Thanatos Rising is undoubtedly Sorizon's peak of songwriting, performance, and production. The latest singles have been featured on Gear Gods, Ola Englund's YouTube, etc. Join the weekly Sorizon live parties on Facebook!
