This is a collection of lost material from Norwegian extremists Sincera, an act featuring members of bands such as Fester, Decipher, and Psychotic Pain. Things get off to a good start with a remastered version of their four track Tall And Proud demo, which consists of old school Black Metal with a galloping Traditional Metal edge. The opening title track of this segment is a well-constructed slice of evil that builds well with some throat-tearing vocals and melodic riffs that bring to mind the likes of Arckanum, whereas "Cursed" is a truly abysmal attempt, marred further by grating spoken word passages. Then we get onto the live recordings, taken from a 9mm handheld camera, boasting a sound that would've scared Mayhem back in their Live In Leipzig days. The album comes to a close with a track Sincera recorded for a local wrestling personality named Byron Lawless, which finds the band yelling his name over a basic Death Metal guitar line. Not exactly an essential purchase, but one that proves labels like Abyss Records believe underground enthusiasts will buy anything.
