(We present Andy Synn’s review of the new album by the Portuguese band Sinistro, released today by Season of Mist.)
Is it just me or… are we undergoing something of a Doom renaissance right now?
I may be somewhat late to the party in acknowledging this – explicitly at least – but it definitely seems to me that the last 6-12 months have seen a real resurgence of interest in the style, bolstered by a plethora of truly spectacular releases running the gamut from the more gothic end of the spectrum, all the way to the groaning weight of the most crushing Funeral Doom, via the brooding misery of the always-welcome Peaceville sound…. with little sign that this slow-moving tide is starting to slacken off or ebb.
But, with albums as good as Sangue Cássia still coming out, why would we want it to?
