Ferocious riffs, relentless harmonies and tight rhythms are the backbone of the heavy metal powerhouse known as SYMPHONY OF MALICE. Hailing from Stamford, Connecticut, this four-piece metal band delivers the best that metal has to offer. Drawing influences from traditional thrash and heavy metal bands such as Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden and modern metal such as Trivium and Machine Head, SYMPHONY OF MALICE is hell-bent on tearing down the house with their superior creative musical talents.
Top guitar brand ESP recently posted a video by SYMPHONY OF MALICE that features their cover of Metallica’s ‘Blackened’. The cover is being touted as one of the most skilful covers of the track in recent memory by fellow musicians and fans alike. Check it out via ESP here.
Brazilian singer-guitarist and SINARO mastermind Gus Sinaro founded SYMPHONY OF MALICE in 2009. As the sole songwriter for SOM, Sinaro remains the only original member from the band’s earliest line-up. The band’s full-length debut, Judgement Day (The Aftermath), was released in January of 2013 and is currently being sold as a re-issue. The ‘Blackened’ cover is included on the re-issue, as well. You can pick up your copy of the re-issue soon.
Produced and engineered by Nick Bellmore (Toxic Holocaust, Kingdom Of Sorrow, Jasta) the debut garnered SOM critical and commercialsuccess. Music videos for the tracks ‘Endless Desolation’ (watch here) and ‘Nothing Left in Us’ (watch here) earned them countless online fans, in addition to the band’s already growing fanbase garnered by their performances across the U.S. SYMPHONY OF MALICE has had the honor of performing with well-known acts like Trivium, DevilDriver, Drowning Pool, Korzus, Nervosa and Eye Empire.
After his years of work with SYMPHONY OF MALICE, Gus Sinaro found himself in the enviable position of guitar hero. He branched out and released a handful of titles with his own eponymous group, SINARO. The success of the two acts led to Sinaro’s sponsorship by ESP Guitars, Ernie Ball Strings and Hughes & Kettner Amps. SINARO infuses the SOM sound with a more melodic and anthemic sheen on his debut solo release Darkest Hours (The Rebirth) and ‘No Salvation,’ the album's latest single. The single's accompanying music video, a gnarly, little urban nightmare, is available for viewing here.
