“Sinister”

Death Metal

Article By: Greg Gory.

Now-a-days, it seems that getting a good beat and a sing-a-long melody from a modern Metal band is too much to ask. If that’s what you’ve been asking for, then Deathpoint is your answer. The Canadian Metal-ers are due to release their sophomore album – “Sinister” on October 1st. This time with former Odium vocalist, Tom Emmans gracing the mic for the band. Sinister’s first single (titled of the same name) is showing the band some positive success; charting at #20 in the LOUD ROCK charts on CMJ, along with some radio play in both the U.S. and Canada. Sinister is very pleasing to the Metalhead’s ear. A good, even mixture of a synthesized background track and double kick pattern drums that power the chugging main riff; but the one thing that stood out to me most was the vocals. Tom Emmans’ voice on this song can easily be matched with Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe. That, by all means is never a bad thing! Emmans’ pipes really give that rough edge to the verses, then can easily switch to a melodic clean style for the chorus. Typically, it makes sense for a title track to be promoted as the first single; however, I don’t think it’s Sinister’s strongest. Deathpoint’s second single – “Thirty Stitches” really packs the bigger punch! The song possesses much more melody in a fashion that System of a Down would be proud of. Tom Emmans’ range really shines on this track. It has a bit of a lengthy intro; but Thirty Stitches has a natural build that kicks your teeth in from start to finish. As a new listener, I can say that Deathpoint may have a satisfying gem with Sinister. We’ll find out for sure come October 1st!
