"Recommended for the toughest" - Metal Hammer Portugal
Knight Terrors - Studio Debut
Nox Sinister seeks to create more than just a concert. Their Shakespeare-inspired lyrics feed a genre mash-up of traditional heavy metal, thrash, progressive, 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. Sinister began by playing shows in Southern California but quickly began to play around the world. 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. Shortly after the tour and a few lineup changes, Sinister began work on their studio debut "Knight Terrors" with producer Carlos Cruz of Warbringer. Sinister anticipates a Fall 2023 release.

"Conceptually inspired by Shakespeare, among other literary names, and even some sadism, Nox Sinister reveals his interpretations through a typically North American heavy/thrash metal, one that is tougher and rawer than the European, especially if we compare USA with UK. " - Mundo das Guitarras
