Sohns - Haus Hell

01. Sarg Fleisch
02. Haus Helle
03. Soultrain Blues Of The Broken Skull (A.M. Architect Remix)

Sohns is a four piece band from San Antonio, Texas who formed in 2006. Sohns play an amazing style of extremely volatile, discordant, and off kilter hardcore, punk, and screamo with influences that come from a variety of sources. Sohns' sound is not easy to pigeonhole, which makes the band stand out in a sea of bands who are aping the latest trends in underground music. Case in point, is the large amount of bands going off on the Pianos Become The Teeth or Saddest Landscape spectrum of things as far as current screamo is concerned. Sohns is actually a refreshing change of pace and the band immediately grabbed my attention after I heard their 'Ripe/Rot' 7" last year. 'Haus Hell' is the band's latest three song EP, self released by the band on March 8, 2013. Musically, Sohns remind me of a hybrid of sounds where bands like Orchid, Capsule, and Comadre are good starting points of reference when describing what Sohns sounds like. This mixture of sounds and styles result in two songs of discordant, volatile, and brutal as fuck music. The third song is an interesting ambient remix song, that's cool as well. Highly recommended! Enjoy!
