About Us

Who are we?

From The Hague, Holland hails RAGES OF SIN (R.O.S.), a deathrash act that was established back in 2009. The first few years of the band’s existence the Dutchies have tried to simply capture what excites them about song writing, performing and used their early days to create songs that RA(n)GE from thrash metal riffing to pounding death metal and some acoustic interferences that every now and then can turn progressive.

The individual band members are highly inspired by Sweden’s melodic death metal sound which is represented by bands such as Hypocrisy, Opeth and Soilwork. RAGES OF SIN however are not copycatting aforementioned acts, rather applying some of their roots and principles to their hell-bent music. Lyrically, the quartet derives their inspiration from contemporary SINners, focussing on the “WTF-factor" of what people can do to each other and their offspring. Truth really seems to be stranger than fiction...

RAGES OF SIN debuted with a self-titled self-released four track demo CD in 2010 which allowed the band to play dozens of shows in The Netherlands and abroad (Belgium, Germany and Switzerland). R.O.S. were the opening act at the (one time only) metal stage on 2015’s Schollenpop festival which allowed the RAGERS to play in front of 10.000 metal fans.

The past few years RAGES OF SIN have been taking a creative breather and developed new visions about their musical direction which can be heard on their most recent release ‘The Gospel Of…’. The MCD was once more self-released by the band, but distributed by Pt78 Records. Therefore the MCD has a worldwide distribution and is available through all major websites.

‘The Gospel Of…’ was recorded at the renowned Split Second Sound studio in Amsterdam, The Netherlands with Jochem Jacobs, who has been involved with mixing, mastering and the production of Textures, Epica, Stream Of Passion, Heidevolk and Izegrim. It was engineered and mastered by Tommie Bonajo (Blind Sight, From Earth) of Tomster studios.
