When you get up to work early in the morning, you need to start the engines and the music to get going. That´s where Ontario based trio Deathpoint´s new album "Sinister" comes in, this is a tight band that aren´t ashamed of going full force with their commercial metal in the same vein as In Flames, Soilwork and Killswitch Engage.
We get the whole package here with growls, razorsharp riffs and melodic choruses. I have no problem with Deathpoint sounding quite average because the songs are good and the performance is topnotch.
Just play it loud but start with a coffee first before you head out to work, and if you want to hear more from this band - also check out their debut album "Fixation" from 2010 and the "Suffer" EP from 2011.
Highlights : Lost haven, For your eyes only
