Sinister: Prophecies Denied (DVD)

Things don't get much more brutal than this 60 minute live concert from The Netherland's Sinister. Prophecies Denied is a lavishly produced and packaged (gotta love that evil yet extremely well created cover illustration) DVD from the folks at Metal Mind Productions, and features a crushing set recorded in Warsaw, Poland, in August of 2006 at the Stodola Club. Upon watching this show, you would be hard pressed to tell that it was filmed in a club, as the stage is pretty large, giving the band plenty of room to roam about, especially lead growler/grunter Aad Kloosterwaard, who prowls about the stage like a menacing death metal version of Rob Halford. The rest of the band pretty much goes through the extreme metal motions, complete with swaying hair and serious head banging. The music of Sinister is pretty intense and punishing to say the least, from the incomprehensible growls & grunts from Aad, to the massive riffs of Alex Paul, and the relentless blast beats from drummer Paul Beltman, it all makes for a brutal death metal experience. Drawing material from their many albums, Sinister smash through thirteen songs plus a few intros on this hour long set, and leave nothing in their wake. Tracks like "Cross the Styx" and "Bleeding Towards the Wendigo" are as brutal as their song titles indicate, trust me.

The DVD comes with a ton of bonus features, including a slew of bootleg footage shot in small clubs and open air festivals. The club footage is pretty awful as far as the sound goes, and the camera work is basically locked into one angle, but you get to experience the band in different locales which is fun. Also included is a documentary on the band that includes interviews, which will be a real treat for the Sinister fan.
