Sidious – Ascension To The Throne Ov Self (2013)

Album:  Ascension To The Throne Ov Self
Genre:  Symphonic/Blackened Death Metal/Grind

Track Listing:
1. Insurmountable Mass
2. Sentient Race
3. Nihilistic Regeneration
4. Ascension To The Throne Ov Self

Support:  Bandcamp ($4.43)

Take all the best elements of Make Them Suffer, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Behemoth, Nile, Dimmu Borgir, Zyklon, and even Cattle Decapitation, and put them in a blender…and you’ll get Sidious.  Wickedly-composed symphonic elements and intricate keys, epic atmosphere, and riffs-a-plenty, all woven expertly over ever-present, almost Black Dahlia Murder-esque, machine-gun blast beats.  To quote Kaotoxin Record’s exec, this is simply one of the most impressive debut EP’s you’ll hear.  I happen to agree with him…in fact, I’d put it right near Cognizance’s monstrous release earlier this year (which I posted/raved about HERE).  If you don’t believe me, check out HeavyBlog’s raving 4/5 review RIGHT HERE.
