Sinistro: Semente

Album Review

Doom/sludge soliloquies from the Iberian hinterlands

The presence of vocalist Patrícia Andrade, who joined Portugal’s Sinistro after first collaborating in 2013, gives this sludge-driven project a haunting quality that many of their peers are missing.

Semente throbs with hidden sensuality and there’s a menace to be found in Andrade’s lamentations (all in Sinistro’s native tongue), the sexiness of her voice juxtaposing against the heavier, crunchier tones beneath. She overlays the rumbling bass and heady atmospheres that combine to create a sound that’s like a meeting between Portishead and Neurosis.
