Sinister - _Bastard Saints_
(Nuclear Blast, 1996)
by: Adam Wasylyk (7 out of 10)
Having heard much of their older material, I admit I was never a big fan of Sinister. But you can't deny that they are cut-throat, never sloppy, and at times quite brutal. This 5-song mini-CD contains 3 new songs (actually, one is an intro, the others are the title track and "Rebels Dome") and 2 remixes of older songs, "Cross the Styx" and "Epoch of Denial". Listening to the new tracks, they are very much in the same vein as older material, with fast riffing and controlled blast beats. The two remixes sound great, with better sounding vocals and production. If this EP is any indication of what the new album is going to sound like, then Sinister can rest assured that the band will still be one of the more popular death metal bands around. Sinister fans should definitely check this out, and expect an album early next year.
