SINISTER: Eleventh Album From Dutch Death Metal Monarchs To Storm North America

November 8th, 2012

Holland’s leading death metal monarchs SINISTER come raging forth from the depths bearing another brutal dose of their overpowering intensity in the form of their massive eleventh studio full-length, The Carnage Ending, via Massacre Records this November 27th in North America.


Since 1988, the pulverizing SINISTER has inundated the international death metal scene with a plethora of full-length albums, EPs, notable demos and splits amidst continuous festival performances and international touring with everyone from Suffocation to Cannibal Corpse to Deicide to Rotting Christ. Their 1992 debut full-length Cross The Styx remains a landmark album for the Dutch death scene, and notable albums like 1995’s Hate, 1998’s Aggressive Measures and 2006’s Afterburner have continually kept the band’s name in a well-respected spot over countless inferior acts.


Despite numerous member changes and revamping of the lineup over the years, the band called it quits for several years in the mid-‘90s only to be resurrected by original vocalist Aad Kloosterwaard reformed the band in 2006. The band released Afterburner, their final album for Nuclear Blast, and signed with Massacre Records as their new label home. In 2011 Adrie was left alone and formed a brand new SINISTER lineup, and recruited his allies in project band Absurd Universe, the new members having already proven their skills through acts like Supreme Pain, Consolation, Unlord, Putrefied, Lunatics without Skateboards and many more.


The new lineup went back to the band’s roots and came up with ten brand new but old-school, modern-sounding pieces for their latest effort. The newest bloodbath in SINISTER’s venerable twenty-three year history, and third album for Massacre Records, The Carnage Ending destroys anything in earshot with a potent and massive sixty-six minute dosage of the band’s respected and straightforward style, crushingly captured at Soundlodge Studio with Jörg Uken (God Dethroned, Dew-Scented, Defloration, etc.).


Get stampeded by the unwavering “Transylvania (City Of The Damned),” the third track from The Carnage Ending, and more SINISTER action AT THIS LOCATION.


Review copies of The Carnage Ending and interviews with SINISTER are available now to North and South American journalists via Earsplit PR.

Sinister line-up from  2010

Sinister line-up from 2010

Oh well, we’ve got bad news for you.

First of all SINISTER have to cancel their appearance at Mexico’s Metal In The Forest Festival, because some members aren’t able to leave their work. The band did everything to make it happen, but in the end it didn’t work out.

Unfortunately this would have been the last show in the current line-up from SINISTER, which means this would have been the last chance to see the band live in this formation.

As you may already have heard guitarist Alex Paul, drummer Edwin van den Eeden and bassist Joost van der Graaf have left the band.

Vocalist Aad Kloosterwaard is now the only remaining band member.

He comments: “But don’t be afraid the band will go on with a new line-up .. and will let the Sinister flame burn for some more years to come.”

Poland’s Metal Mind Productions released an exclusive box containing SINISTER’s full discography on February 14 in Poland, February 21 in Europe and April 5 in the USA. Entitled “Altered Since Birth”, the set contains eight studio albums, a live DVD, a compilation of demo tracks, plus a booklet containing a full biography based on an exclusive interview, the complete discography, lyrics to all songs and a selection of amazing archive photos. The cover artwork was created by the well-known Polish graphic designer Graal.

SINISTER’s latest album, “Legacy of Ashes”, came out on December 17, 2010 via Massacre Records. The CD was recorded at Soundlodge studios in Rhauderfehn, Germany with producer Jörg Uken (GOD DETHRONED, OBSCENITY).
