SINISTRO by Inés Achando

When  Sinistro emerged out of a spontaneous spark on a hot summer’s day spent dallying in the studio, nobody could have predicted the meteoric rise of these fascinating Portuguese doom rockers. Their first album, a new beginning after some different earlier attempts, was strongly cherished by critics and fans alike, with invitations to prestigious festivals following at an astonishing pace.

Now Sinistro presents the follow-up to the highly praised ”Semente”(2016) and even the first impression allows to state that ”Sangue Cássia” marks another huge step in the career of the remarkable band fronted by vocalist extraordinaire Patrícia Andrade. The new full-length clearly shows the confidence and experience gained from their numerous live performances.

Sinistro succeeds in expanding their sonic horizon while keeping all the elements that made ‘Semente’ special. The melancholy and painful longing expressed in the national chant of Portugal, Fado is seamlessly forged together with rock and metal.  Sinistro harness erotic energy and lustful moments as well as bitterness and regret. Silky softness and velvet warmth contrast sharply with harsh edges and stinging spikes.

Sinistro started out by exploring a wide range of reference points for their self-titled debut, which was released in 2012, such as Massive AttackEnnio Morricone, Radiohead, Faith No More, Angelo Badalementi, David Bowie, Swans, Unwound, Mogwai, and Crippled Black Phoenix to name but a few possible comparisons.

On their following effort, ”Cidade” (2013), the Portuguese welcomed singer Patrícia Andrade, who quickly turned out to be the missing element in Sinistro‘s path snaking between elegant doom rock and a soundtrack like an approach. Massive guitar walls combined with gritty keyboard layers and a deeply emotional vocal performance established the band as an essential name in the Portuguese music scene.

Having perfected their signature musical handwriting on ”Semente”Sinistro are now adding experience and maturity to their songs. Each track on ”Sangue Cássia” is its own story and cosmos that will engulf and swallow the listener. Take your time to profoundly enjoy and marvel at the wonders laid out by ”Sangue Cássia”!

Ryba and The Witches is going to release new video for the song ”Times of trouble”!

Witches’ music is indie rock and alternative pop, power of rock mixed with dance lightness where charismatic vocal grasps with its mystery. They just prepared video to their second song ”Times of trouble”.

In the ”boiler” of impressions they’re serving fresh, rock-electronic sound, which is touching listeners’ senses with extraordinary precision.

”Times of Trouble” is the essence of witchcraft spells… everyday life spells and notes of confusion with surrounding reality. Ryba And The Witches one more time is seducing their fans with mysterious, expressive and unconventional  spells and solutions.

Image may contain: 2 people, people playing musical instruments and people on stage

About the band:

The Polish group with a weird name has already made some fuss here and there. Witches‘ music is indie rock and alternative pop, power of rock mixed with dance lightness where charismatic vocal grasps with its mystery.

Ryba and The Witches has just released the new album ”Spell” filled with some energetic, new sounds.

Twelve spells renew the atmosphere of the debut but transform into a fresh soulful sound with the unforgettable mysterious vocals.

The core of the band are Ryba and Mucha. Ryba is Piotr Rybicki, the drummer, a little bit of a witcher and a little bit of a shaman. He gives the rhythm to the band, also behind the scenes.

Bartosz Muszyński Mucha is the lead singer. He is a wizard, painter, musician and a songwriter. Mucha’s lyrics are like his painting. He speaks / describes reality with his paintings . He touches upon sensitive aspects of life: love, loneliness, friendship. Still looking for their inspiration and truly in love with the old sounds of the British cold wave of eighties and some goth atmospheric ambient of ninties.

Statement of the band about the band itself:

“We’ve known each other for 20 years. We live in the same city. Mucha and Ryba played in a band called Lizar. Together we have created Ryba And The Witches which is our artistic fulfillment.”

In May 2014 Ryba And The Witches released their debut album consisting of two discs: CD (10 tracks + bonus) and DVD (recorded live in the studio Krzysztof Komeda studio at Polish Radio “Mercury” – Poznań).

They played on the main Polish festivals as Spring Break Festival, Malta Festival 2014, Jarocin Festival 2014, Nowe Męskie Granie 2014.

In October 2014 they performed an opening act before the concert of the progressive music legend – Fish at Eskulap, Poznan. Their performances were broadcasted on national radio and TV in Poland.

RATW also played very well received concerts in Cologne and Berlin, where the organizers from Germany have invited them again.
