SINISTER DOWNFALL – EREMOZOIC – FUNERE
Sinister Downfall’s sole member specializes in funeral doom metal, hits all the check marks of the sub-genre, which includes slow dismal tones, deep growls, long tracks and mournful tuning. This is deep, heavy, slow and were it not for the clichéd keyboards, perfect. The band does not delve into any original concepts, which is just as it should be when the music is this good, and could easily be compared to a Shape of Despair or Skepticism.
The vocals are sparse and even more previous as are the tracks four of which live for a complete forty minutes. Way To Nothingness may be my favourite track of the four, but there is barely a weak one here. However, this one does deliver an earful of a chord progression. Sinister Downfall’s ‘age of solitude’ will not disappoint fans of funerals, hearses, sufferings or deaths. – Ali “The Metallian”
