Sordid Ordeal


Sordid Ordeal is a blistering heavy rock band from the Northern suburbs of Melbourne. With a sound driven by hot-rod blues and epic rock anthems, the band has earned a reputation for high-energy, whiskey-fueled live shows and tragic stories of personal disaster.

The band is currently working on new material to take back to the studio.

Sordid Ordeal:

In the press

“… That’s what I like about Regicide, it’s punk rock, it’s blues, yet it doesn’t restrain itself and neither will the listener when experiencing it. … Regicide is a strong debut from a band that shows how diverse the Melbourne “heavy” scene can be. There’s a lot to take away from this record, but there’s even more to come back for.”
