Sinister, one of the most underrated death metal acts ever to emerge on the 90â€™s metal scene. In 1988 they began their quest for metal annihilation, recording several demos and EPs which slowly paved the way for future success. Today, after releasing eight LPs, Sinister can stand proudly next to such giants as Deicide, Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel and Death – their music is a sheer definition of death metal destruction.
In 2006 Sinister visited Poland to play a very special concert in Warsaw. The band’s outstanding performance that night was captured on film and released as their first ever DVD – â€œProphecies Deniedâ€. Today this material is available in an audio version.
The concert – recorded at Stodola club in Warsaw on 24th August 2006 – quite clearly showed that, despite many line-up changes that the band had to undergo, Sinister is still in great shape and deserves its place among such death metal stars as Suffocation, Cannibal Corpse, Obituary, Deicide, or Grave – bands with which Sinister was honored to perform in the past. The tracklist of the show featured both new and old Sinister songs, all played with just as much charisma as deliberation. A genuine marriage of chaos and logic, of seemingly unrestrained aggression and the structural subtlety that only the best death metal bands manifest – the guys from Sinister do their best not to be forgotten!
