Hailing from the Netherlands, Sinister arose in 1988. They released their debut album, Cross the Styx, in 1992, and would tour with bands including Suffocation, Cannibal Corpse and Deicide. With the recent release of album number 11, The Post-Apocalyptic Servant, Sinister show they remain as relevant as ever. Metal Temple: “Dutch band Sinister have developed a piece that is mature and lofty in its content, doing well to stray from the clichés of Satan and gore that dominates much of the extreme metal spectrum; Sinister is the brutal death metal of the thinking metal head.” The Barwon Club, Geelong – November 2. With Destruktor, Mephistopheles and Nemesium.
