Thrash metal fans, brace yourself for the next onslaught of music from Sinnery. The band is gearing up to drop their new EP “Below The Summit” this coming September to follow 2022’s break-out sophomore album “Black Bile”. Today, the band unleashes the second single “Somber”, which is ready to burrow into your ears with its animated music video. A blend of speed, technical prowess, and unyielding intensity, Sinnery will also be melting faces live this fall with UK tour dates with Sworn Amongst and a festival appearance at Metal Gates Festival in Romania alongside Katatonia, Rotting Christ, and more.
The band comments on the single:“‘Somber’ was the first song we wrote for the EP. We wanted a ferocious track combining everything we knew how to play up until that point in time. Musically, it’s probably one of the fastest, heaviest tracks we ever did. Lyrically, it’s about growing & emerging out of the soil and dirt that life can be for so many. It’s about dealing with some of the toughest issues in our lives.”
In the first song, the opening words are, “It feels like burying your mother,” because Sinnery wanted people to feel the intensities of the subject from the get-go. They wanted to present their human issues in the most loathsome and gruesome way possible while also focusing on dealing with them. The track combines all the things to love about metal – fast-paced riffs and drum licks take a bit from every genre that Sinnery admires and make it something very original. The initial concept behind “Somber” was taken from the book “The Subtle Art of Not Giving A Fuck” by Mark Manson, which talks about making the best out of the cards you are dealt in life.
Prepare to be swept away by Sinney‘s raw power and unapologetic attitude. Their live act is known to be extremely energetic and heavy & they tend to keep the mosh pretty intense throughout all their sets. Combining modern sound and old-school ferocity they are all about creating an intense experience for everyone in attendance.

“I’ve said this many times in the past, but one of the many things I love about this business is following the progress of bands as they come of age, mature and get better at their craft. What’s not to love about paying early witness to a bunch of folks gelling and heading on an upward trajectory as they make the move towards proverbial world domination? Israeli thrashers Sinnery are one such band. Gathering their Exodus, Testament, Gojira, The Haunted and post-St. Anger Metallica influences, the quartet from Herzliya, Tel Aviv will soon be releasing their second full length, Black Bile via Exitus Stratagem Records. This new tasty little rager pops the clutch and pumps the gas on modern thrash with a grizzled edge that improves upon the roots planted with their 2016 debut A Feast of Fools and their 2013 demo, Showing Teeth.” – Decibel Magazine
“Sinnery [Israel] Proves Thrash is NOT Dead in Groove-Oozing Cesspit of ‘Black Bile’” – Metal Has No Borders
““Death thrash” is the simplified genre description for what Sinnery do, but it’s the strong melodies and the variations among and within the songs that make the album such an adventure to experience from start to finish. Compared to the debut all those years ago, which was entirely written by vocalist/guitarist Alon Karnieli back when he was about 16-17 years of age, these tracks are more elaborate, more sophisticated, more reflective of different moods, while at the same time being more brutally extreme.” – No Clean Singing
“You just gotta love a band that knows exactly what the hell they wanna be. Sinnery bow to no one, instead turning heel to scissor kick you in the temple with battering ram riffs, suplexing drums, and neck-twisting vocals. You know the opening of Back to the Future where Marty McFly plays a single guitar chord on Doc Brown’s hyper amplifier and goes flying across the room from the resulting sound? “The Burning” provides the same effect regardless of the size of your chosen sound output device – you will be ragdolled and tossed around like a frisbee in a college quad by the quartet’s supreme rippage.” – Everything Is Noise”I am old enough to have seen the likes of Metallica, Anthrax and others perform live at small venues in London. I’m also a huge fan of the new wave of thrash like Dust Bolt, Lost Society, etc. Sinnery is welcome inclusion with their aggression, energy, and obvious hunger. They might verge on Death Metal a tad with the vocals but that’s ok. With Matt Hyde (Machine Head, Trivium, Slipknot) having mixed and mastered this beast you know the sounds are gonna be right in your face. An excellent sophomore effort – please just keep thrashing!” – My Global Mind”Sinnery straddle those lines between conventional thrash and modern/groove metal with enough solid musicianship and heaviness to align well with a multitude of touring possibilities.” – Dead Rhetoric”For those that just want to bang heads and go nuts, there are songs like “The Burning,” “Who Will Be Eaten First,” and “Anti Tribe.” “Hanged From The Sun” and “Holes” flesh out their thrash by either toning down the speed or putting an emphasis on melody.” – Heavy Music Headquarters.
