World of Evil

Rated 4.38/5 (87.62%) (21 Votes)

The mid-Atlantic United States can certainly boast some excellent Metal bands, notably While Heaven Wept and Argus. Sinister Realm, from Allentown, PA, is seeking to join their more well known brethren with their third album, World of Evil. Big, powerful, in-your-face Heavy Metal is what Sinister Realm is all about and the opening track, "Dark Angel of Fate," is the proper start because it smokes. Clean shouts, riffs aplenty and a huge dose of attitude force their way out of the speakers. Sinister Realm means business and they let you know from the get go. "Bell Strikes Fear" and "World of Evil" follow in the same footsteps making the first half of the album solid. The second half is less impressive, marred especially by the annoyingly repetitious chorus of "Cyber Villain" and some weaker songwriting. The band rallies at the end and flexes their Doom muscles on the atmospheric 8+ minutes closer "Four Black Witches," with its dark and gloomy chorus.

If bands like Ravage and Steel Assassin sound good to your ears, Sinister Realm's World of Evil should do the trick as well.
