Channeling the spirit of early 80’s metal icons like Dio and Black Sabbath,
Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, with an added epic doom metal influence from
Candlemass, Allentown Pennsylvania based Sinister Realm was formed in 2008
by John Gaffney (former Pale Divine) and Darin McCloskey (Pale Divine, Falcon).
They quickly found vocalist Alex Kristof and recorded a 4 song demo that drew
the attention of... various independent labels. After signing with Shadow
Kingdom Records a live band was assembled and a full length album was released
in August of 2009. Press from around the world hailed the debut album a success
and Sinister Realm began actively playing live to support the album. Not long
after the albums release new members Chris Metzger and John Risko joined the band
and work began on the sophomore album titled "The Crystal Eye".
Set for worldwide release in July, "The Crystal Eye" promises to continue in the
fine tradition of heavy melodic songs established on the first record.
All hail Sinsiter Realm! The true defenders of American Steel.
