Worldwide Distribution through 'Plastic Head Music Distribution'

ISOR have been brutalising the UK mathcore scene since they formed in 1999.

The duo released 2 full length albums worldwide through Copro Records; 'Post Mortem Peep Show' in 2004 & 'The Zebra Theory' in 2008.

They are currently in the studio re-recording their debut album 'Post Mortem Peep Show' for a release on Brutal Elite Records which will be titled 'Revisiting The Peep Show' and will feature 3 new bonus tracks along with re-recorded versions of the other 10 tracks taken from 'Post Mortem Peep Show'

ISOR appeared on numerous Magazine Cover CD's including Metal Hammer, Terrorizer & Rocksound

Both videos taken from 'Post Mortem Peep Show' received regular rotation on many TV stations throughout the world, with the UKs SCUZZ TV & Australia's ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) 'Rage' TV show being the most prolific and both videos can also be viewed online Here

'Coping With Your Ginger Secret' was also used on the soundtrack of the cult horror movie 'Infestation'.

ISOR toured extensively to promote 'Post Mortem Peep Show' with over 110 live shows including a "Rocksound Tour" and are currently planning 'The Zebra Theory' tours that will hopefully include US & Australian dates as well as UK & European shows.

ISOR have received massive critical acclaim gaining such comments as:-

  • "Englandís ISOR has made an album that restores my faith in the metal/hardcore genre.", "I havenít heard an album this creative in a long time. ISOR has only two members, but what these guys lack in numbers, they make up in sheer brutality. This album has to be the musical equivalent of being beaten with pool sticks and then set on fire.", "Nothing is overdone, and nothing is underplayed.", "I sincerely hope this is the future of metal/hardcore. There is literally something for everyone here...", "This album is superb, and I donít think there is a single song that is weak. ISOR has found the perfect blend of everything that is fun and angry about metal and hardcore alike. If you happen to be a fan of Drowningman, Deadguy, Converge, and the Dillinger Escape Plan, then you'll want to hear this album." - [85] Lambgoat - (USA)

  • "...undoubtedly one of the most exciting metalcore debuts in recent times." [4/5] I ATE YOUR MICROPHONE - (USA)
