With riffage as technically proficient as Fear Factory and a melodic tone in the vein of Flaw, Canadian heavies Deathpoint is an amalgamation of extremes. With former Odium vocalist Tom Emmans now in tow for their forthcoming album, Deathpoint release the title track “Sinister” and show how much they’re continually growing. Emmans, especially, is a force behind the mic with a range that borders on death metal growls at times growing to a Maynard James Keenan-style croon and is easily reminiscent of the range on Five Pointe O’s debut.
Sinister is out soon through STM Records. Watch this space for a full review but in the meantime, check out “Sinister” below.
