I've never heard of Storming Darkness before, and I Sin-thesis is the band's debut. One thing I can say though is that these guys have very carefully chosen their moniker!
Sin-thesis is basically a seemingly unstoppable, fast and ferocious series of Black Metal type of venomous music. For those of you that are deeply into blast beats, this disc is for you! For the rest of us, well a feeling of redundancy settles around the third or fourth track. Not that it is bad, by no means, but let me tell you that those few moderate moments are very welcome! The sound is rather good, although slightly raw. This is mainly caused by the recording level (you'll need to turn up the volume), and the highly distorted guitars. All of this contributes to create a stark /cold landscape, which is actually very nice and appropriate in the case of Black Metal arts. Oddly enough, I would say that what I really enjoyed on this album was the ghostly rasps. They remain discrete while giving a chilling and spooky atmosphere to the compositions. Fortunately, moderate passages with great distorted leads and arpeggios and crushing riffs were also included in those favorite songs of mine: "Black Night of Soul / Eschatological Hallucinations" and "Necrofaith Song / Voiceless Decadence". This last one being actually a superb instrumental.
Sin-thesis will satisfy the needs of those into relentless, blast beat galore and furious Black Metal, no doubt!
