And for the potential Sinister fan, there could be no better place to start than "Hate" When you do get around to buying this, get four or five copies for your friends and family. They may look at you funny now, but they'll be thanking you later when you see them in "Diabolical Summoning" t-shirts.
Lets put this album into persepctive, it's a solid death metal album with a skullcrushing atmosphere from the hammering drums to the sludgy 'n' groovey guitar riffs to the mandatory guttural albeit quite clear vocals to avoid an oxymoronic meaning what that prhase means is, there's an added clarity to the guttural chord grinding tone to the point where you could sing or growl along.
The album was released in when Death Metal was at the height of its populairty, unfortunately for some unknown reason to me by the time this furious big wave from Florida hit Sinister in Holland across the Atlantic, it seemed to have either avoided this particular band or simply died out into calm clear water and the band went on unnoticed.
Quite a shame because this album could have easily been as popular as Morbid Angel's Covenant or Domination. There's a swag of songs that stand out and while they are not wholly original, the band puts its influences to good use and at the same time adds a fresh sound or perspective to virtually every song. Choice cuts include: Awaiting the Absu -- the lengthiest track -- offers very little room for the listerner the breathe with a crushing drum sound and riff patterns that change from uptempo to Obituary-style sludge, the album is clearly made for headbanging and not for a stroll through the park and reflecting over your day at sunset.
The soloing intro of Embodiment of Chaos is something to take note of before the song slowly descends into another infectious sludgorama, kinda leaves you in a headbopping mode. Track 3 - Art of the Damned is where the album starts being a high point for me, a certain rolling rhythm from the guitars and drums bulldoze this song..
Other interesting songs include the interrupted sound of Unseen Darkness, the very brutal sounding 18th Century Hell Fire, and the ending sludge-fest of The Bloodfest can someone say "slloooooooooowwwwww" in a very guttural voice whenever the really sludgy part creeps through. A worthy and fun Death Metal album. It won't offer anything new that you haven't heard elsewhere but you will hear an interesting mix of influences from old school Death Metal bands like Obituary, Morbid Angel, Malevolent Creation etc.
A word of advice if you don't like a very loud thick bass sound tweak around with your equlizier because the bass is THICK here and unless you're into that sort of stuff, you'll have deaf ears by the time you finish listening to this it will kinda feel like you've just come back from seeing the band live.
