Due Diaboli et Apocalypse

Rated 3.9/5 (78%) (10 Votes)

Sevens Sins is a band from Ust`-Kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan, that started out as a technical Deathcore band but changed their style to symphonic Black/Death Metal after a while. I would say it was a very wise move, as otherwise the band's second album, Due Diaboli et Apocalypse, would instantly have been flying out of my window. 

Musically, Seven Sins remind me of a mixture of such names as Eternal Tears of Sorrow, Wintersun and Dimmu Borgir, with the bombastic and atmospheric elements that have made those three extreme Metal forces internationally known acts over the years. These blackened Kazakh warriors have created such an ambitiously crafted Black/Death Metal album that hardly pales in comparisons to some of these better-known bands into which big amounts of money has been invested for the production. On Due Diaboli et Apocalypse, Seven Sins manage to sound big and very strong, song-wise, also having a very good production wrapped around the entire album. They also have their own twist squeezed into their symphonic-driven Black/Death Metal, using their own mother language, Russian, to get their message across through the lyrics (supported by occasional female choirs).

Perhaps Seven Sins will never manage to hit it due to the language used on this record, but despite this, it's very easy to recommend the album for all the fans of symphonic and well-crafted Black/Death Metal. Seven Sins can definitely be proud of this achievement.
