If you thought having a death metal super group with members of some of the most prolific metal bands coming together wouldn’t happen, well it has, and it’s very brutal. Recently coming out about having a very debilitating disease known as “transverse myelitis”, ex-Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison got together with Frederic Leclercq (Dragonforce) Attila Csihar (Mayhem) and Sean Zatorsky (DAATH, Chimaria) to form Sinsaenum. Their debut album Echoes of the Tortured features a combination of all aspects of every member’s bands and turned it up to deliver one of the most brutal death metal albums of 2016. The album starts off with some eerie hymns out of a 1960’s horror movie and quickly kicks off with “Splendor and Agony.” Echoes of the Tortured combines many elements from various death metal bands. Most notably you can hear many influences including Deicide, Obituary, Morbid Angel, and Mayhem. Between the thunderous guitars and powerful drumming, this is a major delight to all of fans of metal. Even though it’s brutal and extreme, it does have moments where it allows you to breathe before breaking into another unabashed brutality of metal. For fans who follow all of the band members main projects, there’s many similarities, and what you get is a combination of the heaviest aspects of all the band member’s main projects melded into this concoction of extreme death metal.
