Background[edit]

Igorrr signed with Metal Blade Records in early 2017.[5] The album was preceded by the singles "ieuD", "Opus Brain", and "Cheval".[6][7][2][3]

The album received critical acclaim.

Metal Injection, as well as giving it a perfect 10/10 score, named it the "Batshit Crazy Album of the Year".[18] They concluded in their review, "Igorrr is a project with no boundaries, and the personal belief of creating the art one wants to. In a world where we argue from the mainstream radio to the underground scene, Igorrr is a breath of fresh air. Savage Sinusoid isn’t just a breath of fresh air in musical technicality and emotion though, but an excellent reminder to just enjoy music."[10] Additionally, they ranked the album 9th on their year end rankings of every album.[19]

Allmusic stated " Serre's fusion of acoustic and electronic instruments is tighter and more refined than ever, and while Savage Sinusoid sounds unmistakably like an Igorrr album, he hasn't come close to sounding predictable yet."[9]
