Sinister: The Carnage Ending



Massacre/Sound Pollution

SINISTER has seen a lot of upheaval in the ranks. Since 2011 the band is spearheaded by Adrie Kloosterwaard, who has recruited guitarists Bas Brussaard and Dennis Hartog, bassist Mathijs Brussard and drummer Toep Duin. They also form the project band ABSURD UNIVERSE. The rest of the SINISTER of old are gone. But is the sound gone? NAPALM DEATH has survived in spirit with no founding members left. Proof of either this or that come in the shape of a 2 disc album, a full disc of new material, and a bonus disc of cover of the likes of WHIPLASH, POSSESSED and CELTIC FROST.

One intro later the churning refrain of “Unheavenly Domain” says that SINISTER has survived. Actually a whole range of songs are to my liking, “Transylvania (City of the Damned”, and the ending domination of “The Final Destroyer”. The less entertaining feature is the tepid and messy “Regarding the Imagery”, that should have been left out for best results. The bonus disc is sometimes like a penalty, “Spit on Your Grave” by WHIPLASH could probably kill if swallowed, POSSESSED´s chestnut “Swing of the Axe” is as dangerous as it sounds. CELTIC FROST´s “Dethroned Emperor” is complete with a fu-nny intonation, but also with a nod of respect from every metal head. SINISTER nail them all.
