NEWS: Sinisthra follow the “The Broad and Beaten Way”!
Finland’s Sinisthra who feature in their ranks Amorphis vocalist Tomi Joutsen are sharing the new music video for single ‘Eterne’ from their forthcoming album, “The Broad and Beaten Way” due out 15th May 2020 via Rockshots Records. Guitarist Markku Mäkinen writes the majority of the music for the highly elusive band whose original and complex sound has often been mislabeled. The band explains the evolution of their music: “We all had a history in thrash and death metal bands, but when the band originally came together in 2000, there was not much metal at all in the sound, it was leaning more towards grunge and at times trip-hop. After the first album in 2005, the sound took a lot more metallic turn, and something came in from 70’s prog as well. Metal genres are irrelevant to us.”
The band comment: ‘”Eterne’ is the most straight- forward song on the album, almost a total opposite to the first single “Closely Guarded Distance”. It’s the album opener and sets the stage for things to come, with the expulsion from Eden taking place and everything irredeemably changed. The video was shot in a ruined house that was my childhood home. It solidifies the fact that things can’t be reversed although some echoes might remain of what used to be.”
