SINSAENUM, the extreme death metal project featuring DRAGONFORCE bassist Frédéric Leclercq and former SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison, has released the official video for a new song called “Final Resolve”. The track, a brutal punch in the face, is the first to be released from the band’s forthcoming album, “Repulsion For Humanity”, out August 10 via earMUSIC.
With its earworm riff, its powerful larger-than-life chorus, its technical and melodic solo section, “Final Resolve” shows yet another side of SINSAENUM. The presence of Les Tambours du Bronx, the renowned French industrial percussion band, certainly adds to the song’s martial groove — making it an instant metal anthem for crowds to bang their heads to.
Founding member and mastermind Frédéric Leclercq said: “It is still death metal, it’s undeniable. But we found it interesting to mix it with other elements that we all like. This is only one aspect of the album and what SINSAENUM is about — ‘Final Resolve’ is just an obvious first single due to its catchiness. Because yes, it is possible to play death metal and be catchy. [Laughs].”
Fans will notice that Attila Csihar (MAYHEM) is absent from the video. Due to scheduling conflicts, the distinctive black metal vocalist could not partake in the album recording process as much as he wanted to. “Attila is still a member of SINSAENUM,” explains Leclercq. “He contributed to some backing vocals and lyrics but basically had to step out of this album/tour cycle. Nevertheless, he is still one of us. We have his full ‘blessings’ on the new recordings — we were in constant communication during the recording of ‘Repulsion’… and Sean did an amazing job on vocals.”
“Ave Sin-Bloods!,” said Attila himself. “Because of my duties with my other bands, I could not take part as much as I wanted in the latest SINSAENUM recordings. But that does not mean that I stopped playing with the band — it is just temporary. Check out our new album because it will shave your goosebumps, it’s a frightmare!! We will never stop to open the depths of hell in your souls. Stay tuned and raise your demons!”
With the help of Francis Caste on mixing duties, SINSAENUM sharpened their own sonic identity, far from the typical death or modern metal sound.
The cover artwork, created by none other than Travis Smith, matches the radical, violent and angry approach of the album.
This autumn, SINSAENUM will be touring Europe for the first time since its formation. U.S. tour plans remain to be determined.
Last November, SINSAENUM released the EP “Ashes”, with Metal Hammer Germany declaring it to be a “rad sign of life” and Metal Hammer U.K. taking it one step further, saying, “Take that form into the studio for the second full-length and we could have a classic on our hands.”
“Echoes Of The Tortured”, SINSAENUM‘s first album, was nominated as “Best Debut” by Metal Hammer Germany and was praised worldwide as one of the freshest and finest approaches to death metal.
With these impressive credentials, it is hard not to label SINSAENUM a supergroup, since it embodies the joint venture of Leclercq and Jordison. The rest of the band is of no less importance and credibility — Sean Zatorsky (DÅÅTH, vocals), Stephane Buriez (LOUDBLAST, guitar), Heimoth (SETH, bass) and Csihar (MAYHEM, vocals) – all of which are well respected in their fields – complete the ensemble, making SINSAENUM the epitome of premium-level heavy metal.
