Seven Sins A Second
Sinamore has a sound thats a bit between dark melodic and progressive metal. Vocalist/Guitarist Mikko Heikkila has a great set of pipes that has a somber, sad edge while having the range to reach upwards whenever needed. The riffs are catchy and infectious and it was a no brainer that this was going to be a great cd from the first track. No doubt Sinamore will be compared to their Finnish brethren HIM, but really, they are worlds apart other than being melodic. HIM can't begin to touch the dark edge that Sinamore has captured so brilliantly on this release.
