ISOR Sign To Brutal Elite Records Ltd
We are very proud to announce that mathcore legends 'ISOR' have signed to Brutal Elite Records Ltd.
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'
When asked about their decision to re-record the band said, "It's so great to finally have the resources to record 'Post Mortem Peep Show' as we originally intended, we both love that album to bits, but the production style never suited it & it will be amazing to have that record exactly as we originally intended with our own personal instruments, sounds & not generic ones that were chosen for us, together with the heaviness & clarity that comes with a modern up to date recording..."
After hearing the new guitar tracks going down in the studio, we at Brutal Elite have to agree, we have heard that album thousands of times, but are now hearing notes & nuances for the very first time, and talk about heavy, my god, the guitar tone is devastating!
"Some of the parts sound so different now you can hear all the notes, we are a bit worried that fans will accuse is of changing the riffs, but we promise, that's how they have been played all along, you just couldn't hear them before (unless you were watching us live). But you are gonna love em even more now you can hear them properly!"
ISOR are also working on a brand new release containing 6 new tracks, that will be recorded & released worldwide in early 2010 on Brutal Elite Records.
ISOR have received massive critical acclaim gaining such comments as:-
"England’s ISOR has made an album that restores my faith in the metal/hardcore genre.", "I haven’t 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 don’t 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." -  Lambgoat - (USA)

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