SINATE formed in June 2005, by September that same year they had recorded and released their debut album ‘Beyond Human’. Followed up by two New Zealand tours and a tour in Australia.

Upon their return SINATE kept playing shows throughout the country including the ‘METAL DAY OUT’ which hosted 18 bands, both International and Local. Then SINATE returned to Australia, playing at Brisbane’s popular ‘Hellfest’. Yet another tour of New Zealand followed, this time with Brisbane based band STATE OF INTEGRITY.
