All hail The New Flesh

ON THE SURFACE MAY APPEAR ONE OF THE MOST RANDOM SUPERGROUPS OF ALL TIME – MEMBERS OF DRAGONFORCE, SLIPKNOT, MAYHEM, SETH, LOUDBLAST AND DÅÅTH – BUT LET’S FORGET THE PERSONNEL FOR A SECOND AND LET THE MUSIC DO THE TALKING…

Here’s a quick primer on Sinsaenum: The sextet has ‘officially’ been around less than a year, but has roots back to 2010 or thereabouts. Or 1998, depending on who you talk to. Its nucleus is based in France but, like many bands today, have members spread around the world. Their forthcoming debut, ‘Echoes Of The Tortured’ is blackened death metal that combines the experience and talents of its veteran line-up to deliver powerhouse references to the glory days of furious American ’90s death metal and various waves of Scandinavian blackness. And their moniker is an entirely made up word combining ‘sins,’ ‘insane’ and ‘asylum’.

It’s who constitutes the sextet’s line-up that’ll have some of you doing a casual double-take, while others vociferously bray on any openforum about how this is something they never thought they’d ever see, let alone something that should ever exist. That’s because Sinsaenum is comprised of French bassist Heimoth and guitarist Stéphane Buriez (from black metallers Seth and death metallers Loudblast, respectively), vocalists Sean Zartorsky (Dååth, ex-Chimaira) and black/death/experimental metal grandpappy, Attila Csihar (Mayhem, Sunn O)))) and one Joey Jordison (presently of Vimic, but best known for being a founding member of Slipknot) on drums. Raising the potential for ire ever further in those who worry about such things is that this entire she-bang was spearheaded and wrangled by Dragonforce bassist Fred Leclercq. And while a portion of you take a little time to deal with whatever you just threw up into your mouths, let’s hear from Fred about this project’s genesis.

About Terrorizer Magazine

I know I am not alone when I say I’m a sucker for being nostalgic. The thing about loving music is that because it plays such a massive part in my life, when I listen to things, it invokes so many memories. I always find myself taking myself back to when I first heard said record, who I was with, what I was doing and so on. Right now as I write this, I’m listening to Prong’s ‘Force Fed’ album, recounting all the shows I saw Tommy and co in at the now defunct Birmingham Edwards No.8 club during my teens. Those shows were immense, even if the number of punters wasn’t! I’ve seen them in more recent years and still enjoy their musical output, but those early days to me, personally, were special. What has this got to do with anything, I hear you say? Well really, it’s the same reason as why I wanted to put Mastodon on the cover of this month’s issue ahead of their headline performance at Bloodstock. You see, Mastodon are one of those seriously special bands, who have not only etched themselves in my own nostalgia bank (hey, anyone who witnessed their debut capital gig at London’s Underworld supporting High On Fire will always remember that show) but more importantly, into the wider scheme of metal’s rich history. Never once have they repeated themselves musically and consequently they have successfully created a stunning discography that continues to remain vital as the years go by. Mastodon were a game changer and their Bloodstock show allows us a chance to remind ourselves just why we love them so much. In their own words, our cover feature allows the quartet look back at their career to date and look forward to the future too. Crack open a bottle, stick any of their albums on the stereo, flip to the interview and enjoy some nostalgia yourselves! Darren Sadler, Editor
