"Recommended for the toughest" - Metal Hammer
Nox Sinister creates metal music for tyrants. Their Shakespeare-inspired lyrics feed a genre mash-up of traditional heavy metal, thrash, speed, and power metal that creates a tribal energy within the crowd, as if to rally them for a battle. They have been described as “violent musical theatre,” mixing untamed aggression with powerful theatrics. Making their debut at the infamous "Whisky A Go-Go,”, Sinister continues to play shows in Southern California and set the stage on fire. After less than a year of playing locally, Sinister was called upon to support Ektomorf on their "Reborn" tour through Europe in the fall of 2022.
