A trailer for “Paint The World”, the forthcoming debut album from Italian symphonic metallers SINHERESY, can be seen below. The CD, which will be released on September 30 via Bakerteam Records, was mixed and mastered at Fascination Street Studios in Varberg, Sweden by Johan Örnborg and Jens Bogren (SOILWORK, AMON AMARTH, OPETH, PARADISE LOST).

“Paint The World” track listing:

01. Last Fall
02. The Gambler
03. Paint The World
04. Roses & Thorns
05. Made For Sin
06. Breakpoint
07. Lost In The Shadows
08. Our Angel
09. Elua’s Gift
10. Lying Dreams (bonus track)

Formed in 2009 and inspired by power metal bands such as NIGHTWISH, KAMELOT and EDENBRIDGE, SINHERESY soon developed its unique blend of metal by adding a wider range of influences going from the dark sound of SIRENIA and WITHIN TEMPTATION to the power/progressive approach of SYMPHONY X and CHILDREN OF BODOM. Their first EP, “The Spiders And The Butterfly”, attracted very positive reactions from fans and critics alike and it was followed by the video clip for the song “Temptation Flame” and an increasing number of live shows.

The official lyric video for the song “The Order” from Swedish death metallers DEMONICAL can be seen below. The track comes off the band’s fourth full-length album, “Darkness Unbound”, which will be released on September 20 via Cyclone Empire. The CD, which will be available as a limited first-pressing digipack and LP, was once again recorded at Necromorbus Studios in Stockholm.

Comments the band: “We are confident that ‘Darkness Unbound’ will be an important milestone not only for us as a band but also an album that will have a certain impact on the current death metal scene and especially the Swedish old-school wave.

“The artwork and visual concept of the album follows the same somber path as the music, making it a solid entity of perpetual death metal darkness.”
