Sinister King is a melodic heavy metal band based in Bergen, Norway. Their typical song consists of energetic guitar riffs, evocative synth melodies, a memorable chorus and a guitar solo. It is also well- produced, as the band prides itself on the sound quality of the songs. Some of the music is slightly progressive, and a lot of it is quite groovy. The lyrics are dark and melancholic courtesy of singer and lyrics writer Rune Skjønberg.
