SINSAENUM (Ex-SLIPKNOT, MAYHEM, Etc.) To Release Ashes In November
Sinsaenum, the quite-large band of drummer Joey Jordison (ex-Slipknot, Vimic), bassist-turned-guitarist Frederic Leclercq (Dragonforce) and Stephane Buriez (Loudblast), vocalists Attila Csihar (Mayhem, Sunn O)))) and Sean Zatorsky (ex-Chimaira, ex-Daath), and bassist Heimoth (Seth), is already releasing a followup to 2016's Echoes Of The Damned.
The band has announced the six-song EP Ashes to come out on November 10, which will have three new songs, two songs that were previously Japanese bonus tracks, and a Frédéric Duquesne remix of the song "Dead Souls." Here's what Leclercq had to say about the release.
"Ashes is showing a more mature version of our music, and also an angrier side. A lot angrier. We wanted the production to be rawer. Nothing is polite here. We just want to grab the listeners by the throat and spit our hatred into their face. With this EP, we took things further. The black metal vibe is more present in the three new songs, as are the synths; they reinforce the eerie side of our music. Experimenting with keys and machine is not something we are afraid of. Musical darkness can come in many ways."
Sinsaenum has a lot of potential. The band's lineup is awesome, and Echoes Of The Damned was a good record, but what ultimately killed it is that there was a minute-ish instrumental between every single song on the record, which kind of ruined the flow. So yes, we're excited for Ashes!
