SINISTHRA - Re-Issues Debut Album And Presents Previously Unreleased Track

After the recent release of the new album, The Broad And Beaten Way, Finland's Sinisthra featuring Amorphis vocalist Tomi Joutsen and Italian label Rockshots Records have joined forces for a reissue edition of the band's debut album Last Of The Stories Of Long Past Glories, out on 28th August.

Originally released in 2005, the new physical version of the album includes four bonus tracks: "Ice Cube Sun" (demo version), "Unrevealed" (demo version), "Not For You" (unreleased track), "To Have And To Hold" (unreleased track).

Today the band is releasing the lyric video of the unreleased track "Not For You". Listen to it in the player below. It's recommended to fans of Katatonia, Amorphis and Anathema to name a few.

Drummer Erkki Virta comments about the new release: "Our debut album was released 15 years ago and now gets a reissue, with four bonus songs: "Not For You" was originally intended to be a bonus for a Japan release that never happened. Also included is our full Empty Banalities Adorned With Dashing Eloquence demo from 2004, as well as the opening track of our first demo from 2001, called "To Have And To Hold". Revisiting these songs now, I think the album has aged rather well and only occasionally makes me cringe. The band was still finding its' feet but all the basic elements of Sinisthra were already in place. I'm happy that it's available again."

Sinisthra has been in various stages of existence since 1999. Their style of music is basically metal, drawing from a wide source of different influences and blending them to a sound that can't really be compared to any one single band. Always quite melancholic, most of the time quite heavy, and often with strong shades of 70s prog and gothic metal, yet with lesser shades of 90s grunge. Somewhat misleadingly, but as the singer Tomi Joutsen joined Amorphis, his career skyrocketed and Sinisthra’s didn’t, so due to lack of time from his part, things slowed down. Link
