Sinister Realm: cloudy skies.

From the beginning Sinister Realm has made no apologies for their direction. They're influenced by classic, 'keep it true,' metal from the aforementioned bands, but also the likes of Dio and Ozzy. And they're dead on target. Their metal is melodic, appropriately heavy, with outstanding harmonious vocals, a beefy rhythm section, and a stinging twin guitar assault.

What more could you ask for? Song compositions is at a premium, with tone and pace varied across the album. Sinister Realm can offer the speedy heaviness of Cyber Villain and then turn to the soaring epic metal of Four Black Witches, introduced by the both melodic and creepy, The Forest of Souls. Some songs, like Dark Angel of Fate or Prophets of War, offer strong thread of rock groove that makes their metal both heavy and down right catchy. And you can't miss the obvious classic metal influences, especially from Judas Priest, when listening to the opening guitar of World of Evil (listen below).

Sinister Realm's World of Evil is simply premium classic heavy metal from a very talented band who understands the genre and delivers. Buy this album.
