SINNERS BURN – Disturbing Creatures (CD)
From curiously glancing at Sinners Burn’s artwork for their newest wretched creation, “Disturbing Creatures”, I just kept on thinking of horror movies, which had such horrific and cryptic imagery, but none came to mind, so I could not compare. This was a plus because their artwork is definitely more unique than their generic sounding guttural death metal. They’re definitely tight as a band, their music flows and hits in the guts like it should, but there was nothing much exceptionally out of this world besides their sinister and demonic vibes throughout the ten songs featured here.
I’ll give them one thing, they’ve balls to stick to their guns and play a style of music, which is still underground, that is unless you’re Cannibal Corpse or Morbid Angel, even then you still do not get much mainstream success. However, this band is more hell bent on belching out suffocated, guttural vocals backed by darkened guitar tones and a craving to tear through the sound barrier.
Despite the barrage of blast beats and the life deprecating guitar and bass passages, they do have one song in the form of “Sweet Stench Of Death”, which reminded a little of Motorhead on prescription strength steroids with its rock & roll rhythms and upbeat direction for such a morbid song.
Of the ten songs on this album, I was not blown away by any of them due to the fact they did not do much for me when it came down to diversity. Again, do not get me wrong, they’re not bad or anything, just nothing to write home about.
