Sindecent is a brutal and evil black metal band that captures all of the depressive magic that makes bands like Burzum and Rotting Christ so brilliant. With guitar riffs very much in the vein of Immortal Sindecent manages to drag you into their crushing sound. The music uses lots of dark minor key melodies that help destroy any joy you might have had going into listening. The keys are atmospheric and add a beautiful edge to what is otherwise an extremely brutal sound. The new EP is at once a tribute to the titans that helped form the genre, while simultaneously pushing the envelope as to what the genre is capable of. While this is definitely not music for everyone those who are into the genre will love it. So go black metallers and revel in the inverted glory of Sindecent.
Sindecent Interview 1. Can you tell us a little bit about the project for those that have never heard of you before?
The project is called Sindecent , formed in 2011. It’s a single man Black Metal project from Dhaka, Bangladesh.
2. How would you describe your musical sound?
Well, I will like to call it atmospheric, depressive and melodic black metal.
3. What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
The lyrical theme is mostly based on death, depression, struggle, legends, mythology, dark fantasies and misanthrope.
4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name?
Sindecent is a combined word which is named after the behavior of social disguise and hypocrisy which we named decent and practicing it for ages. This generates a lot of hate in me towards everyone and everything caused by us.
5. Currently there is only one member in the project, are you panning on expanding the line up in the future or do you choose to remain solo?
I never actually thought about this but things might change if it needs to be in future.
6. Can you tell us a little bit more about Akkrosh Records/
Akkrosh is an independent & non-commercial label for Black metal , Viking metal, Doom metal & DSBM. The first compilation album is coming out in this December called “Doomed In Depression” focused on dsbm’s and raw black metal. It’s the first Asian dsbm compilation album which is participated by black metal bands from Europe, America and Asia.
7. On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of depressive black metal?
Well, ‘Hearts Of Funeral’ got some thumbs up as a dsbm track. I have only one EP out there and some positive feedback so far.
8.Are there any other musical projects besides this one?
I have an experimental project focused on dark ambient electronic sounds.
9. What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
Sindecent will stay black metal but I’ll probably try to add some folk sounds to introduce Baul in a very different way.
10. What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Rotting Christ, Bathory & Burzum have influenced me a lot towards Black Metal. I would also add Immortal, Agalloch, Lord Belial, Marduk, Xasthur, Forgotten tomb and Nocturnal Depression on the list. I have been listening to a lot of underground black metal recently for our upcoming compilation album. Bands like Cheerful Depression, Toorn & P.h.t.o are quite reknown among them. I am still stuck with Katatonia and Forgotten tomb latest albums along with good old Sargeist, Angantyr, Windir & Wedard.
11. Does Satanism or Occultism play any role in your music?
12. How would you describe the metal scene in your home country of Bangladesh?
Heavy Metal culture is quite established in Dhaka and still growing like a disease in other parts of the country. We have thousands of metal heads and loads of bad-ass bands making really good music. Black metal as always has a reputation of being isolated from the others and it’s not different here.
13. Outside of music what are some of your interests?
Travelling, sports, martial arts, manga, psychology and history.
14. Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
I would like to thank BlackMetalZine for this interview. Cheers!!
Sindecent are a 1 man band from Bangladesh that plays a very depressive from of black metal and this is a review of their 2012 ep "Hearts Of Funeral" which was released by Akkrosh Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with not much in the way of fast playing or blast beats, while the synths are only used for the background briefly and they do not become a lead instrument on the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced depressive black metal riffs that are very dark, raw and primitive sounding with some influences from other depressing music genres being thrown into the riffing on one song and there are no guitar solos or leads present on t his recording, as for the acoustic guitars they are only used briefly and use full chords to add more darkness and depression to the music..
Vocals a re all grim sounding depressive black metal screams and growls, while the lyrics cover dark and depressing themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Sindecent are a very great sounding raw and primitive depressive black metal band and if you are a fan of t his musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Hearts Of Funeral". RECOMMENDED BUY.
