Given that Sinmara is part of a highly praised collective responsible for the current peak of Icelandic black metal, this news brings lots of excitement on its own.

However, what’s even better is the sneak peek that you can check out below. Upon listening to it for the first time, I immediately sensed the hunger and motivation to deliver a spectacular quality. Firstly, the weaving frostbitten melodies around the tight drumming stand out immediately with such a precision and influence. Secondly, the vocals introduce a powerful vibe of crushing devotion and omnipresence; making this experience far more interesting than just a listening session.

It just effortlessly stole my breath away especially with the incredibly catchy and memorable melodies icing on top of a marvelous composition. Give it a shot below, you won’t regret it!
