They have a unique sound and enough in place in terms of creativity to warrant further investigation.

Sinnergod are described in the bio as a Goth Metal band formed in Wigan nearly ten years ago by twin brothers Mark (vocals/guitar) and Chris (drums) Hampson. The line-up is completed by Paul Swindells (keyboards/samples), Sam Saint (guitar) and James Dunn (bass). Their self-titled second full-length release follows 2014's 'Seven Deadly Sinphonies' and three EPs, 'Two Thousand and Never' (2009), 'A World In Grey' (2012) and 'Behind Every Corner' (2013).

Keyboards and programmed loops/samples feature strongly on 'Sinnergod', but in no way do they dilute the sound. Big guitar riffs are at the core of each song with imaginative and skilful solos making an appearance, generally towards the conclusion. I was unsure after the first play because the opening few tracks have a similar tempo and structure and lack the identity of those in the second half of the album. 'Never Had A Gun' and '1,000 Sins' both pack a musical punch whilst picking up the pace and the anthemic hooks register immediately. The main idea behind 'Supernatural' is a good one but repeated unnecessarily, extending the running time past the seven minute mark causes interest levels to wane as it progresses.

The choral arrangements during 'We've Been Expecting You' (again seven minutes plus) are a nice touch, giving it an atmospheric and epic feel, whilst 'Johnny Sits Perfectly Still' is pure AOR/Melodic Rock with a chorus ready made for Firefest. The urgent riffing and double-kick drums that form the basis of 'We Don't Have Anything' make it the heaviest track on offer, coming across like late eighties Metallica with keyboards. I would have liked the sound to have more clarity and separation and sometimes the vocals lose their edge in a muddy mix, but musically there is much to appreciate and with two guitarists in the band I'd like to think the songs have a lot of power when played live.

Sinnergod would benefit greatly from the guiding hand of a good producer to trim the fat from some of the running times, focus the direction and give the vocals a more dynamic projection, it will be interesting to see how they progress during the next few years. They have a unique sound and enough in place in terms of creativity to warrant further investigation and I will certainly be keeping an eye open for live dates.
