“In Victory” is a follow-up to 2020’s “Enter the Gates” and is most definitely an album that will get defenders of Old-School Heavy Metal excited about! Through the album’s 9 non-stop headbanging tracks, an epic journey will unfold where fans will identify everything that made the genre great – anthemic choruses and solos, hard-hitting riffs and faith in Heavy Metal as a symbol of brotherhood and the fight against Evil.
SINSID’s new album shows the Norwegian quintet at its best, inspired and never so powerful. One thing that’s more evident compared to previous works “Mission from Hell” (2018) and “Enter the Gates” (2020) is the more frequent use of the double bass drum. The band sounds as good as ever with an improved contemporary production which however still managed to maintain that “old school” feeling.
Originally formed in 2012, SINSID’s influences include anything from the blues and rock to metal and Viking or thrash but the very core of the band is, unmistakably, traditional heavy metal. The band’s debut triumphantly introduced SINSID to the metal world and quickly gained the band a massive new following, with reviews referring to it as “good old, honest, working-class metal” and “couldn’t be more metal if it was hammered over an anvil!”
I had to get used to the very strong greek accent of the vocalist. But everything else - riffs, melodies, lyrics, the overall sound- is pure gold to the Manowar-Worshipper. In fact, you have to go back lots of years to find equally fine material from the fallen kings of metal LexMetalUndergroundAustria
