Connect with Sinatra


Listen to Sinatra

The Pitch: Berlin's Sinatra skip the crooning in favor of explosive mathcore and hardcore inspired by Cursed, Converge, and their friends Wølfenstein.

What I Like: Noisy, crusty, and destructive.  The wailing guitars and unfettered vocal delivery bring with them a very real sense of disgust and contempt.  I wanted to ask these guys if their name comes from the Helmet song, and I feel like a few of these tracks ("Hell") answer that question with a resounding yes.  Speaking of references, there is a hook on "Sandstorms" that reminds me of Every Time I Die's "Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space."  Also, are you hearing these fills and snare rolls?  F#$king drumming wunderkind over here.

What I Don't Like: I like me a certain roughness to the production on my hardcore albums, but on some of the areas where the guitar stands alone with palm-muting the sound doesn't quite do it for me.  And for the amazing drum performance I am saddened that the cymbals often get washed out.

The Verdict: "It`s Sinatra`s world.  She just lives here.  I hate everything as much as I hate me."  Name your price for this album if you dig mathy hardcore.

Flight's Fav's: "Hell," "Dead To You All," "Flesh From Bones"
