Sinistra

BandMetalRock

The Sinistra sound is one all its own. Never to fall victims to trends or genres, the Sinistra sound is comprised from the various influences of its members. Because of the diversity and appeal of our songs our fan base has been called a "melting pot of metal." We like it that way.

Biography

Sinistra hails from the "Live Music Capital of the World" Austin, Tx. The band itself has been together since early 2009 although its members have plenty of playing and touring experience. Frontman Andrew Silva is the brainchild behind Sinistra. In the summer of 2007 Andrew entered the studio with the tracks that would ultimately become Sinistra's debut album "When Reason Exists." Fast forward to 2009 when members Chris Peters (lead guitar), Tom Coyne (bass), and Dennis (Ishy) Pesicka (drums) joined the band.

Lyrics

Whispers Shadow

Written By: Sinistra


The one you lived for now call a mistake
Why create
Abandon the thought just emotional state
Tolerate

Decision that you made
We just canÕt relate
The consequence deadly
As we know your fate
The whispers that shadow
Your conscience afraid

Diminished capacity such twisted spin
Sick within
A system thatÕs failed seeks compassion not hate
LifeÕs tragic

Reluctance

Written By: Sinistra

A walking tragedy
Struck blind but not impaired
The sheer calamity of ignorance
Your stride through life has proved
Your torpid ways remain
Concerned to break free from opinion

A dormant shell conditioned in suspension
Frightening the thought of independence

Falsify
To fit the mold youÕre supposed to be
Purify
The poll of public sentiment

One chance my choice
The end of reluctance is born

The growing reality of risk involved
The wicked thought of subjection
CanÕt live with the resentment
Of chance passed
Either way they
Will pass judgment

A dormant shell conditioned in suspension
Frightening the thought of independence

Falsify
To fit the mold youÕre supposed to be
Purify
The poll of public sentiment

One chance my choice
The end of reluctance is born

Why am I so afraid to live?

The failure once not known
My world
Am I an illusion of my own perception?

I wonÕt live enslaved
You canÕt destroy me
Realize my way
Does this resonate?

Charlatan

Written By: Sinistra

Your inflated consciousness
Destroys the day
The skillful technique you breed
Spawns this catharsis
Reality principle
Imposed on all those youÕve lost

Neurosis spreads through you
Your fraudulent manners
I became a victim to

Charlatan
Deceitful spinster of truth
Charlatan
Hypocrisy that governs you
Charlatan
Immersed in concealing
The lie you live to choose

Tug on the strings
As your puppets we dance
To the insatiable quench
Fall martyrs to circumstance
As swindled witnesses
Attest to your blatant lies

Nothing misconstrued
Perceptual experience
Provides for different views

Charlatan
Deceitful spinster of truth
Charlatan
Hypocrisy that governs you
Charlatan
Immersed in concealing
The lie you live to choose

The severed accounts
Are all that you hold on to
This state of subjection
Is mindful when voices
Emit your name
Unconsciously your face comes to mind

Your casualties accrue
One look at yourself
And youÕll find the reasons in you
