SINISTRO comment on "Lotus": "A kingdom of a lonely man gazing at emptiness, memories, and fears in search of a divine encounter to save himself. Like this man, playing live is a form of salvation, an exorcism. A place were emotions visit us in their most genuine shape. A place to dance with fears and memories and let them go far, far away. In the end, you are your own salvation."

SINISTRO have previously released the artwork of 'Sangue Cássia', which has been created by Pedro Carmo and can be viewed below.

Biography

Sinistro-9953-small-ines_achando

When SINISTRO emerged out of a spontaneous spark on a hot summer's day spent dallying in the studio, nobody could have predicted the meteoric rise of these fascinating Portuguese doom rockers. Their first album, a new beginning after some different earlier attempts, was strongly cherished by critics and fans alike, with invitations to prestigious festivals following at an astonishing pace.

Now SINISTRO present the follow-up to the highly praised 'Semente' (2016) and even the first impression allows to state that 'Sangue Cássia' marks another huge step in the career of the remarkable band fronted by vocalist extraordinaire Patrícia Andrade. The new full-length clearly shows the confidence and experience gained from their numerous live performances.

SINISTRO succeed in expanding their sonic horizon, while keeping all the elements that made 'Semente' special. The melancholy and painful longing expressed in the national chant of Portugal, Fado is seamlessly forged together with rock and metal. SINISTRO harness erotic energy and lustful moments as well as bitterness and regret. Silky softness and velvet warmth contrasts sharply with harsh edges and stinging spikes.

SINISTRO started out by exploring a wide range of refence points for their self-titled debut, which was released in 2012, such as MASSIVE ATTACK, ENNIO MORRICONE, RADIOHEAD, FAITH NO MORE, ANGELO BADALAMENTI, DAVID BOWIE, SWANS, UNWOUND, MOGWAI, and CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX to name but a few possible comparisons.

On their following effort, 'Cidade' (2013), the Portuguese welcomed singer Patrícia Andrade, who quickly turned out to be the missing element in SINISTRO's path snaking between elegant doom rock and a soundtrack like approach. Massive guitar walls combined with gritty keyboard layers and a deeply emotional vocal performance established the band as an essential name in the Portuguese music scene.

Having perfected their signature musical handwriting on 'Semente', SINISTRO are now adding experience and maturity to their songs. Each track on 'Sangue Cássia' is its own story and cosmos that will engulf and swallow the listener. Take your time to profoundly enjoy and marvel at the wonders laid out by 'Sangue Cássia'!
