Sijjin is a German band with an Arabic name and a definite Middle Eastern focus running through their debut album, Sumerian Promises. The band plays thrashy, pummeling death metal with vocals that are easy enough to decipher with a bit of effort. The guitars have a savage bite, and all the songs will batter and bruise you with their metallic fury. The songwriting is uniformly good with standout tracks "Sumerian Promises," "Angel of the Eastern Gate" and "Darkness on Saqqara" driving their hooks into your ears with no mercy. Sumerian Promises is a face-melting blend of Ex Deo’s buzzsaw guitar work, Melechesh’s mystical themes and perhaps a bit of Celtic Frost in the vocals. Play this on 10 and you’ll be putting the neighbors on notice.
