Sinprophecy is a Melodic Death/Doom Metal band from Cairo, Egypt formed in 2009. They are the very first band to play that genre in Egypt. The name of the band was based on a concept that everyone is a sinner but in his/her own way. We are all committing sins and there is no exceptions, it’s an instinct in the human race and that’s what you can see in the band’s lyrical theme which is mainly about (Sin, Humanity, Dark Fantasy, Despair, Inner Struggles).
They have been in the Egyptian metal scene for a long time now and here they talk about their upcoming début album which is titled ‘Sacrifice and Redemption’. This would be their very first studio album, though they have released 2 albums in their live shows.
“The concept of the album ‘Sacrifice and Redemption’ and the lyrics was written by our vocalist “Sayed Ragai”. The whole album is talking about war, but from the perspective of different people, the one who betrayed his friends, the one who lost his father, the one who lost his beloved ones, the rebellion one who stood against the tyrant ….etc. But all the stories are pouring in the same pot, as it’s all related – Sayed Ragai
Listen to their First single ‘Summoning’ HERE you Sinners, apparently that is what their fans are called, well everyone is a sinner so…
Sayed Ragai: It is talking about a traitor who betrayed his friends and you can say he sold his soul to the devil, just to guarantee a good place in the upcoming empire of the tyrant, so he ended up in a cell locked behind bars cursing and blaming himself while his conscience is killing him slowly.
