Guitarist Alex Paul, drummer Edwin van den Eeden and bassist Joost van der Graaf have left Dutch death metallers SINISTER. Vocalist Aad Kloosterwaard, who is the only remaining member of SINISTER, has vowed to relaunch the band with a brand new lineup and “let the SINISTER flame burn for some more years to come.”
Poland’s Metal Mind Productions released an exclusive box containing SINISTER‘s full discography on February 14 in Poland, February 21 in Europe and April 5 in the USA. Entitled “Altered Since Birth”, the set contains eight studio albums, a live DVD, a compilation of demo tracks, plus a booklet containing a full biography based on an exclusive interview, the complete discography, lyrics to all songs and a selection of amazing archive photos. The cover artwork was created by the well-known Polish graphic designer Graal.
SINISTER‘s latest album, “Legacy of Ashes”, came out on December 17, 2010 via Massacre Records. The CD was recorded at Soundlodge studios in Rhauderfehn, Germany with producer Jörg Uken (GOD DETHRONED, OBSCENITY).
