Sewing together elements of black metal, death metal and even some elements of power metal, SinnerAngel create a unique sound that isn’t easily pigeonholed into a single genre. SinnerAngel and their music isn’t all over the place either with their mixing and matching of genres as they sew each one together with ease creating a cohesive and overall interesting sound. Sinister Decalogo is the title of SinnerAngel’s brand new release, and within the album you will find ten tracks for your sinister pleasure. With an ominous and atmospheric intro SinnerAngel begin their record preparing you for the darkened onslaught that ensues.
After the opener-which is also the name of the band-SinngerAngel really get into the thick of things providing you with nine thrashing tracks that get your neck snapping back and forth within minutes. Each track that follows the intro is a swirling miasma of metal and you really have no choice but to head bang. The musicianship on all of the tracks is solid as they are complete with tight tremolo picked riffs, thrashing drumming, rumbling bass lines and vocals that are of course hellish and seem to be screamed from beyond the grave. Each element on this record is executed well, from the musicianship, to the vocals, to the underlying dark atmosphere. Sinister Decalogo is a well executed record to say the least.
As mentioned above, SinnerAngel takes ques from death, black and power metal and blend it up into something quite unique. The marriage of all three genres is cohesive and cooperative and never does SinnerAngel lurch from one to the next creating a wholly jarring listen. Instead, each genre is woven together nicely creating a melodic, atmospheric, heavy and memorable listen. Categorizing SinnerAngel under one single category would be a crime as they execute each genre excellently and work in each one seamlessly.
Sinister Decalogo is a solid listen, one that you can listen to numerous times and still get the same amount of enjoyment out of. Each of the ten tracks including the intro are solid. There doesn’t seem to be a track out of place on this record and there certainly isn’t a track on this release that is lack luster. Overall, this is a good album to jam out to and head bang to, and on top of it all this record has something for just about anyone.
