Sinister Announces Album's North American Release

Holland’s death metal monarchs Sinister have now announced a North American release for eleventh studio full-length, "The Carnage Ending," via Massacre Records this November 27th. The following press release was issued about the band:

"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.)."

Sinister Parts Ways With Three Members

Dutch metallers Sinister have checked in with the following announcement about canceling a festival appearance and parting ways with three members:

"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.

"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."
