Sinnery was formed in 2012 in the town of Herzliya, Israel and they have previously released one album ‘A Feast Of Fools’ which I have never heard but on the strength of this release, I will be sourcing copy pronto.

Their influences are pretty obvious – old-school thrash with a dash of death metal too. ‘The Burning’ leaves you in no doubt that these guys have come to thrash. It’s rapid, rabid, aggressive, and full of energy. The title track eases off the gas a bit with a huge chug fest and some rapid double kick from Mandelbaum then ‘Who Will Be Eaten First’ carries on the great old-school thrash feel – which is very Machine Head and Rob Dukes era Exodus with the gang-style backing vocals. ‘Sever’ comes on like some of those creepy Slayer tracks and ends up stomping over you with a malevolent grin on its face. ‘AntiTribe’ just rips before we get creepy again on ‘Mouthful Of Nails’ chugs and grinds at a mid-pace. ‘Hanged From The Sun’ takes it down even further and allows Karnieli to show another side of his voice besides the shouty stuff. It does pick up the pace after a minute and forty and boy does it get you going. ‘Bleak’ is another banger all held down by Tuvi’s bass before the acoustics come out on ‘Here Below’ not for long though because the power chords coming crashing in and we’re away on another total thrasher. The final cut ‘Holes’ has another acoustic intro before it builds on some jagged riffage and more double kick.

I am old enough to have seen the likes of Metallica, Anthrax and others perform live at small venues in London. I’m also a huge fan of the new wave of thrash like Dust Bolt, Lost Society, etc. Sinnery is welcome inclusion with their aggression, energy, and obvious hunger. They might verge on Death Metal a tad with the vocals but that’s ok. With Matt Hyde (Machine Head, Trivium, Slipknot) having mixed and mastered this beast you know the sounds are gonna be right in your face. An excellent sophomore effort – please just keep thrashing!

 

Score: 9/10
