  • Indeed. Sydow was so fucking energetic. Also none of the music after he left really impressed me as much as Layers of Lies, especially Secondary Effects which is a pure and soaring anthem. One of the catchiest songs and choruses ever.
  • mackrory is good but sydow was nuts. i miss him.
  • The Sinister Supremacy is great :D
  • New album is amazing! Growl and harsh and clean vocals are great, drums and guitars are also as always epic! \\m/ DARKANE NEVER DISAPPOINTS ME!!!
  • you remember what happened when Hetfield thought he could sing....end of good Metallica. Clean vocals on this are too much in that vein. I agree with other posts, this is weakened by the clean vocals, makes it seem too commercial or too mehcore. Shame, I like the riffage and progressions.
  • I awarded 'The Sinister Supremacy' a spot in my Top 20 for 2013. Here's why I love it: http://wp.me/p2Hn3C-cR
  • Soooooooo fuckin' awesome!!!!!! HOLY SHIT!!!!!
  • What the fuck is with the complaints about vocals? This album fuckinc rules. So much awesome riffing. I love the vocals as well. Above all the awesome guitar and drum work there are even catchy choruses.
  • The Hetfield similarities are there but they are few and far between. I'm hearing much more of a Jon Howard / Chester Bennington thing going on I'm afraid. The harsh vocals are great though, no complaints there. And musically it's just pure awesomeness.
  • The Hetfield thing was my first wince, but I can forgive Darkane, and will try again.
