In October 2018 when we premiered a song from Sinister Downfall‘s first album Eremozoic, we introduced it this way:
“It will become immediately apparent, through the song we’re about to premiere, that the shadowed ranks of funeral doom practitioners spread across the globe must make way for another band in their vanguard. The band is Sinister Downfall, the work of a single individual who in this debut album has already demonstrated an impressive mastery of these very dark arts.”
A follow-on album in 2020, A Dark Shining Light, strengthened that conviction, and now it will be cemented through the band’s third full-length, The Last Witness, which will be jointly released on September 24th by Funere (Armenia) and Weird Truth Productions (Japan). You’ll begin to understand why this is one of the most impressive funeral doom albums of the year when you listen to the song we’re premiering today.
