''The Blood Past'' comprised of all SINISTER material smaller than an album leading up to the release of their first CD. ''The Blood Past'' is not a retrospective but a
collector's & Die-Hard SINISTER Fan's Release & like the best of those, lets us see this band emerge from the hazy collision of their influences. The titles read like a
sestina, because some of 19 tracks are the same 5 songs repeated in different order as they were on the 7 inches, EPs & demos included here. But it is always amazing
Death Metal Brutality in over 70 minutes! Like all early SINISTER stuff, these songs inhabit a twilit zone between old school death metal, the new wave of
SUFFOCATION-inspired brutal metal & the technical death metal like PESTILENCE or ATHEIS that used complex guitar rhythms & evolving, motif driven structures to
make a new way of writing music.
