Sincera/Cursed And Proud/Abyss Records/2011 CD Review

Sincera are a band from Norway that consists of some weel known veterans in the scene that plays a mixture of deark and black metal and this is a review of their 2011 album "Cursed And Proud" which was released by Abyss Records.

Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown in, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with riffs that have a 90's Greek black metal feel to them, as for the synths when they are utilized they add a very dark and atmospheric 90's style black metal feel to the music.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast riffs that mix dark and black metal together with some melodies being thrown in, while the lead guitars are very dark and melodic guitar leads.

Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with some ocassional death metal growls, spoken word parts and clean singing while the lyrics cover dark and anti christian themes, as for the production it has a very dark and powerful sound and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording in adition there are some live tracks on the recording which have a more raw feeling than the studio songs.

In my opinion Sincera are a very good dark/black metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tall And Proud" "Blinded" "Die Like Jesus" and "Byron Lawless". RECEMMONDED BUY.
