This afternoon, we’re pleased to bring you the premiere of a brand new Sinistro track. Taken from their forthcoming album, Semente, due out via Season of Mist on April 8th, ‘Relíquia’ is the first track to be unveiled.
Sinistro: “Relíquia is about an old lady revisiting past memories and daydreaming about them in order to escape her present state of solitude. The landscape of her memory is her real world.”
José Dinis (director): “The vídeo was shot in a perfect sunny day where vivid colors were consumed by the melancholic tones of this song cast in a black and white screen,creating a set of perfect intimacy and sympathy with the character.”
We can tell you that Semente is of the most exciting records we here at Roadburn have heard in a long, long time. The way its enveloping darkness unfolds like a creeping mist, the way Patrícia Andrade‘s hauntingly theatrical vocals wrap themselves around the musical shadows.
There is atmosphere, but also drive, there are textures, but also beats. Semente is a flowing, ethereal yet very concrete, unclassifiable journey that every Roadburner worth his / her salt will want to get lost in.
Portugal‘s Sinistro are for now one of the best secrets in the European scene, and we are both proud and excited to be a part of what will surely be a tremendous revelation in 2016. They will play Roadburn 2016 in the Green Room, on Friday, April 15, and we can’t wait!

Lovingly pinched from Ave Noctum: Hailing from Wilmington, North Carolina, here is a story of two buddies, one a drummer from Thunderlip!, one a frontman and guitarist for ASG, never quite being able to make time to write and perform together. Wildlights (formerly known as Crusades) marks the point in […]

Lovinly pinched from The Obelisk: For those who would be inclined to do so, there are really two ways to take on listening to Weedeater at this stage in their career. One can take a record like the 10-track / 34-minute Goliathan, the fifth full-length of their 17-year tenure, first for […]

Lovingly pinched from Pitchfork: When I saw the German black metal band Ascension at Maryland Deathfest in 2013, they were among the most memorable acts, largely because it was hard to know what to make of them. After being battered with a weekend of booze and an especially pulverizing set […]

Lovingly pinched from Ave Noctum: With so many cookie-cutter bands around jumping into the nearest genre and ‘paying homage’ to all that has gone before, it’s sometimes difficult to get your head around exactly where a band like Sólstafir is coming from. Like all things new, it takes a bit […]

Praise for Floor‘s Oblation from San Francisco’s aQuarius Records: It’s been ten years since the last full length from these sludge pop legends, but mainman Steve Brooks has most definitely been keeping that sludge pop legacy alive with his new band Torche, and really if you dig Torche, you’re gonna […]

Lovingly pinched from Meat Mead Metal: The words progressive and experimental probably scare off as many listeners as they attract, because it seems more and more, people are less willing to take risks on what music they absorb. I say that because I know when I drop those descriptors in […]
