Halshug's second studio full-length Sort Sind delivers ten ripping new tracks, which are each reflections on fragments of the human experience expressed in the form of hardcore punk, the album's title translating to "black mind." A brutal rock record, Sort Sind bears hints of motorcycle-fueled d-beat such as Austin-based Impalers and the like, while still retaining the raw punk that made the sound on their Blodets Bånd debut so potent, the songs showing an even more destructive and elevated approach to their songwriting.
The overall theme for Sort Sind is based on the members' feelings and experiences inspired by growing up in the 1990s and 2000s in neglected parts of Denmark. The intention with the album is to make good hardcore punk music that people can get off too; to contribute to their scene and evoke some energy in those who hear it. Recorded live, produced and mixed at Ballade Studios in Copenhagen by Lasse Ballade, who also produced and mixed Blodets Bånd, the Sort Sind LP was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege.
