Sinister are a band from the Netherlands that has been featured before in this zine with a history that goes back 20 years along with a musical style that I would describe as being dark, heavy and fast old school death metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "The Carnage Ending" which was released by Massacre Records with 5 cover tunes as the bonus tracks.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars, as for the synths they are only used on the intro and they bring a very dark and evil sound to the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast old school style death metal riffs that are very dark, heavy and evil sounding with a good amount of melody being thrown into the riffing in addition there is a great amount of thrash influences on the cover tunes, while the lead guitars are very chaotic sounding 90's death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls with some spoken word samples being utilized at times, while the lyrics cover dark, occult and anti religion themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great recording from Sinister and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Transylvania" "Oath Of Rebirth" "Blood Ectasy" and "Face Fate" which is a Bloodfeast cover. RECOMMENDED BUY.
