Sinister are a band from the Netherlands that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style that I would describe as being heavy and brutal sounding old school death metal and this is a review of their 2012 digital compilation album "Years Of Massacre" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into t he music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they have a v ery powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast old school style death metal riffs that are very heavy and brutal sounding with a good amount of dark sounding melodies being thrown into the riffing as well as a brief use of clean playing, while the lead guitars are very early 90's sounding death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly deep sounding death metal growls with some spoken word parts being utilized at times, while the lyrics cover dark, violent and blasphemous themes, as for the production it h as a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of t he musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding compilation from Sinister and if you are a fan of this band, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Summit Of Sacrifice" "The Sin Of Sodomy" "Transylvania(The City Of The Damned" and "The Grey Massacre". RECOMMENDED BUY.
