The Post-Apocalyptic Servant

Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (12 Votes)

The Netherlands' Sinister has been around since the late 80s, cranking out album after album of solid Death Metal. 2014 sees the release of the band's 11th studio album, The Post-Apocalyptic Servant. While I may not appreciate the finer points of Death Metal, even I can tell this is quality first-wave stuff with guttural vocals that avoid sounding like someone puking, Thrash-based riffing and inhumanly fast drumming. The performances are as tight as you expect from a band with a 25+ year history. What I can also tell you is that the songs all sound very much alike and while there may be some people who can distinguish one from another, that person is not me. The cover of Agent Steel's "Unstoppable Force" is pretty cool, I must admit. If the Reign in Blood-inspired Death Metal from bands like Morbid Angel, Deicide and the like floats your boat, step right up and have your head ripped off by Sinister's The Post-Apocalyptic Servant, just don't expect anything you haven't already heard numerous times before.
