Sinister - Diabolical Summoning LP (Orange/Silver vinyl)
The Netherlands may not have a scene as prolific as the mighty Swedes or the Americans, but the bands that were around in the early nineties offered some really good death metal whether it was from Asphyx, Pestilence, Creepmime, or Gorefest, and there was always a guarantee of quality from their releases. Sinister's sophomore record, "Diabolical Summoning", is no exception. While the band's first full-length, "Cross the Styx", showed a lot of talent and potential for the young band, their second album would really identify the band as a serious group in the death metal underground. The sound is tighter and the music is much more memorable all around, from the riffs to the solos to the skull splitting vocals to the drums and everything else; this record just kicks all kinds of ass from the start.
