Johannesburg, South Africa: groovy thrash metallers PSordid have come back hitting hard! In April last year we noticed a stirring from dormancy with the sudden release of a song after a whopping seven years of inactivity. The song was accompanied by the promise of a long-awaited debut album with hopes of release within the year of 2015. Yet further delays only saw the band return to the stage in early 2016 and finally, last week on 8 September, the album Bekhor was delivered.
“I think the only thing we really want to say is that the album is not ours. It is our fans’ album. It is our family and friends’ album for putting up with us when we were a far worse band than we are now, coming to support us anyway, and lying to us about how ‘good’ we were, just to keep us motivated. We owed everyone this album, and we sincerely hope that they love listening to it as much as we loved putting it all together.” ~ Dave Dippenaar (drums, PSordid)
Bekhor was entirely self-produced with Dave curating the process of recording, mixing and mastering, and the artwork offered up by PSordid vocalist, Barend Chamberlain. Although released only in digital format for now, Dave tells us that hard copy prints will become available in due course, but Bekhor can be acquired via all major digital channels in the interim.
“We’re very much humbled by the overwhelming response and feedback that we’ve received on this album so far. Nothing makes us happier than knowing we could create something that people enjoy.” ~ Dave Dippenaar
