In the early years of the millennium, Einsevater’s Sinistra, a musician from Leipzig, was coming to the fore; the self-titled first full length did not have much of the funeral in the traditional sense but retained its slowed-down rhythms set in a context sometimes as close to industrial as from black. Totenlaut, released four years later, does not present too many variations to the characteristics of the sound but is better executed and recorded; in the album both the obsessive and torturing nature of Wormphlegm and the slow and fatal pace of Worship seem to converge in a not regrettable way, although the whole diluted along more than an hour’s duration certainly does not make things easier for less patient listeners.
