Sinnrs “Profound” (Orchestral Blackened Death Metal)
For fans of: Behemoth, Dimmu Borgir, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Carach Angren
Where classical and extreme metal both collide, and merge in extreme harmony; Danish duo Sinnrs exude their own form of blackened metal , a sound that proves more brutal than their name, a sound cited in their own words, as ‘pure dark matter’.
Nero and Maestus formed Sinnrs in July 2017, and immediately started conjuring songs for their debut album ‘ Profound ‘. The 10-track release was mixed and mastered at the Hertz Studios in Poland , who have previously worked on releases from Behemoth , Vader and Decapitated .
Fully conceived and performed by Nero and Maestus , ‘ Profound ‘ merges the furious brutality of extreme metal with the elegance of classical and opera, giving listeners a dimensional musical experience in pure dark matter. The juxtaposition of punishing guitar riffs and relentless blastbeats with symphonic arrangements and soaring vocals is fascinating in the way it highlights the inherent differences and similarities these genres have.
While classical fans might balk at the savagery of Sinnrs ‘ sound, metal enthusiasts will enjoy getting swept up in the epicness the classical elements bring to the table. Whichever side you might fall on, ‘ Profound ‘ is an honest manifest that makes a wonderful spectacle out of a rather unlikely pairing.
