Get a band together. Learn some cover songs. Play said covers. Write own material. Record own material. This is pretty much the early lifecycle of every band and Demonztrator are no different. The Finns followed this exact route and after delivering the enjoyable ‘Forgotten Acts of Aggression’ studio album in 2017, followed by the ‘Myriad Ways of Dying’ EP in 2019, the band are back with their second studio album ‘Sinister Forces of Hatred’.

                These Finns have always leaned upon the heavier, brutal side of the spectrum and ‘Sinister…’ is no different. In fact, this album pretty much picks up where the last one left off by offering furious thrash metal delivered through a Teutonic lens. ‘Sinister…’ isn’t your general album of Bay Area worship, this is cranking up the aggression as tracks such as ‘Proclamation’, ‘Crossing the Rubicon’ and ‘Nail Them All’ drag the waters with all the power of Destruction, Kreator and Sodom breaking forth in a metal thrashing mad frenzy of bloodlust which would also appeal to the more modern thrashing beasts of Angelus Apatrida, Warbringer and Shrapnel.

                Granted, there isn’t anything here that the listener will not have heard already; but with ‘Sinister…’ Demonztrator deliver these tracks well, coupled with all the passion and integrity they can muster. There might not be anything massively outstanding, but that doesn’t stop the band from delivering a solid album of thrash.

"a solid album of thrash"
