Summary:

Overall a sound début album from Sinnergod which should appeal to Goths who like their music a bit rocking and rockers who like a bit of Goth!

Manchester Goth/Alternative Metal band Sinnergod released their début album Seven Deadly Sinphonies on Halloween 2013. Formed in 2001 by twin brothers Mark and Chris Hampson, Sinnergod already have two EPs under their belt and have played at Bloodstock Open Air Festival and Dark-Cide-Fest.

On first listen I picked up flavours of Marilyn Manson, Rammstein and 30 Seconds to Mars. The opening track Overture was more of an introduction than a song. With similarities to Tribute by Tenacious D, I initially thought Brian Blessed was recounting a story for Jackanory set to Gothic, orchestral overtones with his last words being I am a Sinnergod! The first song, therefore, was The Thirst  which reminded me of Marilyn Manson’s The Beautiful People, especially the rhythm. Hello Again with its strong keyboards was something like Erasure meeting The Sisters of Mercy, a little Respect in the Temple of Love?

Through it All with its keyboard intro is like a Gothic power ballad. Breathe and Se7en were reminiscent of Thirty Seconds to Mars tracks say Kings and Queens or Closer to the Edge. Bonus track Bang Your Dead was the highlight for me and although sung in English it reminded me of Ramstein, a cross between Du Hast and Sonne. Ugly with its machine gun fast drumming in places and powerful riffs and melodies was a beautiful ending and did indeed end with the words, we’re all just beautiful. Overall a sound début album from Sinnergod which should appeal to Goths who like their music a bit rocking and rockers who like a bit of Goth! Nine songs in total, enough to get nine ladies up dancing on this, the ninth day of Christmas! Ho Ho Ho!

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
