Sinister Begin Writing New Material

Despite the fact that their latest CD, "Afterburner", has only just been released through Nuclear Blast Records, reunited Dutch death metallers SINISTER have already commenced the songwriting process for their next album, tentatively titled "No Mercyful God".

SINISTER's current lineup consists of Aad Kloosterwaard, drummer and founder of the band, on vocals, Alex Paul on guitar, Paul Beltman (ex-JUDGEMENT DAY) on drums, and Bas van den Bogaard on bass.

The band, who re-signed with Nuclear Blast back in 2002 after a one-album stint with the now-defunct Hammerheart Records, issued their last studio album, "Savage or Grace", in 2003.

Sinister Rises From The Dead

Dutch Death Metal band Sinister raised from the dead! "Fact is that after numerous letters and e-mails of fans around the world we reconsidered to revive the band again", states the band, "but drastic measures were needed in order to keep true to ourselves and to our fans that supported the band from the beginning." Which means that Sinister decided to alter the line-up in an unorthodox way: Aad Kloosterwaard, drummer and founder of the band, will be the new vocalist. "This role is not new to him, since he is already handling the mic some time with his other bands Blastcorps and Infinited Hate." Additionally bass player Alex Paul will switch to guitar while newcomer Paul Beltman (ex-Judgement Day) shall be the new Sinister drummer. A (session) bass player will be added when the band hits the road again.

Plans for a new album are already at hand as well, as Alex, Aad and Paul explain: "Our vengeance to those we hate start at the end of this year when we will record our new album in the Stage One studio in Germany. The new album will be released again through Nuclear Blast Records, our brothers in crime, to whom we have the deepest respect for believing in Sinister for all these years. As for our fans who supported us throughout the years and hopefully will again in the future!"

Infinite Hate Signs To Displeased Records

Displeased Records has signed Dutch extreme death metal act INFINITED HATE and will release their debut album "Revel in bloodshed" this spring. Displeased Records was able to contract Graal (Behemoth, Rotting Christ, Enslaved, Vader) for the artwork of the upcoming CD "Revel in bloodshed". For this full length Infinited Hate will go back to the AM studios to work again with Andre van de Ree.

Infinited Hate was created in August 2003 by Aad Kloosterwaard, drummer of Sinister and Houwitser. To complete the line-up, the other sinister members joined in for the oppportunity to mix old school death metal with new style US death metal, something that they could not do with their own band. You can expect ten songs of sick and twisted death metal. Listen to an MP3 of the song 'Built for the kill' taken from the "Primitive butchery" promo here.
