SINISTER

SINISTER
Afterburner
(Nuclear Blast Records)
45:04min

I think that, like every fan of the band, we didn't know very well what to expect from this new SINISTER album after a nearly three-year hiatus, especially with a completely new line-up where only Aad is the only original member but not as the drummer anymore, just as the vocalist. So there's not even one characteristic element of the band left. Anyway, after the great 2nd album of INFINITED HATE, there was some hope... Right after the first listening of "Afterburner", the sensations were more than excellent!! Fuck, everyone could recognize it's SINISTER in no time!! I don't know how they did it!! Perhaps it helps that Alex Paul, former bass player and now guitarist, has perfectly captured the true essence of the SINISTER style. But the truly positive thing about this album is that they have known how to progress and offer new elements always respecting the band's style, this is powerful, brutal and intense Death Metal in its purest form, with Aad singing with a grim and gutural voice, in the truest SINISTER tradition!! In various moments this album reminds me on the glorious "Hate" album, it has killer riffs and killer songs!! They include new rhythms and melodies that they didn't do before, dark midtempo passages... Even the drummer has more variety than Aad and now you can hear very fast blast beats that were missing before. All in all, I think SINISTER have made a great step forward after various average albums (in my opinion), and that brought a touch of fresh air to their career. This is already one of my fave albums of the year so far... Pure Death Metal!!
