Sins Of The Damned are a band from Chile that plays a mixture of black, thrash and speed metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Striking The Bell Of Death" which will be released in May by Shadow Kingdom Records.
Nature orientated soundscapes and war samples start off the album along with a brief use of keyboards before going into a heavier direction. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic yet old school style along with the music also having a great amount of 80's influences but sounding modern at the same time.
A decent amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing while the vocals a re mostly black metal screams that are heavily influenced by both the first and second wave era's. Throughout the recording you can also hear a lot of elements of thrash and speed metal and some of the tracks are long and epic in length.
The songs also add in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the vocals also add in some demonic growls at times as well as some of the music also adding in some influences of early 80's traditional metal, as the album progresses keyboards also make a return in certain sections of the recording. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover life, revenge and war themes.
In my opinion Sins Of The Damned are a very great sounding mixture of black, thrash and speed metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Striking The Bell Of Death" "The Outcast(Sign Of Cain)" and "Death's All Around You". 8 out of 10.
