SINISTER Call It Quits

Dutch death metal pioneers SINISTER have officially called it quits.

In a statement issued through band's web site, drummer and founding member Aad had this to say:

"After 16 years of serving, SINISTER is no more...It was a hard decision for me, SINISTER was a way of life for me. But sitting behind the drum-kit for almost 20 years and having a full-time job is hard for me to combine. Of course I would love to give up my job, because I hate going to work everyday, but that's impossible, you'll probably know why. First I was thinking doing vocals together with Rachel but that wasn't an option…thinking of someone else behind the drums, no way! Also Ron is too busy, It was or SINISTER or INFINITED HATE….. It was a hard decision to quit SINISTER and drumming, believe me."

"Thanks to all the die-hard SINISTER fans all over the world!!!!!! We hope that INFINITED HATE will bring you as much as brutality as SINISTER!!!"

The legacy of SINISTER will continue as Aad will continue with HOUWITSER and new project INFINITED HATE, featuring SINISTER members Rachel and Ron.

"I had a great time [recording] 'Revel in Bloodshed', the upcoming album of my new band INFINITED HATE together with Rachel and Ron," Aad said. "If you listen to INFINITED HATE, you'll hear SINISTER."

SINISTER released seven albums in all, and were part of the initial wave of European death metal that is considered a classic sound to this day.
