Established in 2007, Separation Of Sanity is a collection of some of the most brutally innovative musicians in the Portland area. A mix of metal, aggro, progressive, thrash, and anything else they decide to throw into the mix, S.O.S. prides itself on its live performances and high standards of songwriting. The band consists of Jason “X” Carpenter on vocals (Server X); on guitars, Randy Toten and Keith Fitzgerald (Ditch Digger, Proven); Ivar Forkbeard on bass (Zero Effect, Amongst Us); and is rounded out with Jackson Coffey on drums (Garudas Mission, Banditism). Separation Of Sanity has shared the stage with acts like Soulfly, Prong, The Accused, As I LayDying, OTEP, Butcher Babies, One Eyed Doll, Witchburn, Proven, Ditch Digger, Dirtnap, We Have Guns, Lidless Eye, FallRise, Kingdom Under Fire, as well as numerous other acts over the years.
After dropping The Decimation E.P., the music has taken flight with various spotlights on podcasts such as “The Mothpod,” “The Midnight Spookshow,” and Scott Siglers, “Friday Fix...” the song, “Pandemic” has also become the intro for Siglers podcast, “Tuesday Terror.” The song, “GRINDER” has become the theme song for the podcast, “The Astral Audio Experience.”
With a new album on the way, the bands current incantation is only gaining momentum by playing bigger shows and bringing sharper and more ferocious performances to the fans!
