Preserving heavy metal legacy is a double-edged sword – the downside is that new ideas and approaches are sometimes excluded. Nevertheless, the occult tribute that Sijjin pays to the founders of ancient death metal is necessary – the German band has drawn its strength from albums that were the primordial representatives of the genre when death metal was massively feeding from thrash. Possessed – Seven Churches, Morbid Angel – Altars Of Madness, Pestilence – Malleus Maleficarum just to name a few beasts.
Take the raspy vocals of the frontman of the disbanded Necros Christos with the fast, archaic riffs and growling bass and kill them with wild primitive drums.
A must for old-school maniacs! One should start the prehistoric death metal journey with their 2019 EP (Angel Of The Eastern Gate) to open the sarcophagus of Sumerian Promises LP!
