Hailing from Santiago, Chile, Sobernot is gearing up to release their latest single “Smoke Masters (Gimme My Money Back)” in video form, which comes off an upcoming record “Destroy” that will be released down the road. They have been playing this collection of songs live for quite some time with positive reception, and now listeners around the world can indulge in their groovy, thrashy metal that is reminiscent of the classic greats, with a modern twist. The band explains what listeners can expect on the future release:
“This album will grab you and won’t leave you ‘til you drop, we tried to have many different rhythms and vibes to pump you in every way, our thrasher side; we include a very powerful ballad; some songs have some nü metal and aggro influences. It’s pretty much an homage to our influences but with our touch of groove and fun. Also, every song is a sing-along, we love to make songs that our audience can yell in our shows alongside us. We try to have a spicy wit in our way to say things so you can have a good time reading the lyrics as well.”
As for the single “Smoke Masters (Gimme My Money Back)”, the lyrics revolve around people who talk the talk, but never follow through. In the local slang, they are known as Smoke Sellers, and usually, there are a lot of them in the music industry. Musically it contains all the elements they love about their music: a very heavy-sounding intro, classic thrash elements but also some nü metal vibes as well on the verse, a ⅞ chorus which might be odd for some but to them, jells perfectly with the groove.
The album will be the band’s second and listeners can expect a diverse range of elements within. An onslaught of power, moments of brutality, melodic breaks, and great chorus’ will all be had, as metalheads whip their heads back and forth to the infectious rhythm and solos.
Recording and Live Band Line Up:
César “Vaigor” Vigouroux – Vocals
Pablo “Chespi” La’ronde – Guitar and Vocals
Joaquín “Yakls” Quezada – Bass
Piero “Pyro” Ramírez – Drums
Sobernot is an independent groove metal band born in Santiago, Chile. By mixing classic metal with groove, Latin rhythms, and progressive rock elements, they stand out in their style through powerful and innovative riffs with a balanced use of guttural and clean voices from one of a kind. This is not only reflected in the studio, but they’ve also made their live shows and performances one of the most solid ones on the local scene. Between their most important appearances, they highlight the opening shows for Havok (June 2018), and Crisix (Dec 2018). Also, sharing the stage with three of the most iconic exponents of the old-school thrash metal genre: At War, Hirax, and Exodus in September 2019. Sobernot is about to release their second studio LP, called “Destroy” on July 7th, 2022, which continues the path built by the first album “Silent Conspiracy” (2018), keeping the riffs unique identity, powerful lyrics, and exceptional choruses, but this time powered by the co-production of Franco Gabelo (CL) and mastered at Fascination Street Studios (SWE) by Tony Lindgren (Sepultura, Opeth, Kreator).
