Underground death metal collective SEROCS have released their newest collection of sonic rage, The Next, today through Comatose Music.
The Next includes eight songs of pure devastation and chaos, with similarities to CRYPTOPSY, WORMED, DECAPITATED and GORGUTS. The Next marks a new chapter in the sound of SEROCS as they bring technical death metal back to its heavier roots. The album also features guest appearances by musicians from around the world, including Antti Boman (DEMILICH), Chris Lollis (LECHEROUS NOCTURNE) and more. Recorded in eight cities across the globe,The Next promises to leave a punishing and everlasting impression.
SEROCS began in 2009 as a one-man project by guitarist Antonio Freyre that later transformed into a full-blown international band with the addition of Timo Häkkinen (SOTAJUMALA), Mike Poggione (MONSTROSITY) and Jason Hohenstein (ex-LECHEROUS NOCTURNE).

“This intensely rhythmic music is strong in its level of energy and ability to make songs that trap and redirect that energy, creating the ‘oh wow’ effect of complex riffs interactions that expand context with subsequent changes, causing a sensation like discovering new passageways in an ancient building.” – DeathMetal.Org
“This is caustic, highly relentless music, fine-tuned with a lightning-fast percussive assault and exploding with furious fretwork that definitely reminds me of Cryptopsy, and I also hear Cannibal Corpse in some of the more “brutal” riffs. Serocs wisely break beyond their normal mold of speed-addled aggression with plenty of groovy breaks and build-ups that let the music breathe until the next steamrolling section appears. If you want a lot of twisted, rapidly shifting riffs and awesome solos, they have all that too.” – No Clean Singing
“…this band impresses with their angular take on tech-death, one that approaches things from a much more raw place than most sterile tech-death, the feeling way more human and likeable than most of their peers, again, reaching into that Cryptopsy and Gorguts terrain in a pretty big way, and with a great amount of success.” – [8/10] Bravewords.com
