We introduce hypergeometric-type sequences. They are linear combinations of interlaced hypergeometric sequences (of arbitrary interlacements). We prove that they form a subring of the ring of holonomic sequences. An interesting family of sequences in this class are those defined by trigonometric functions with linear arguments in the index and $\pi$, such as Chebyshev polynomials, $\left(\sin^2\left(n\,\pi/4\right)\cdot\cos\left(n\,\pi/6\right)\right)_n$, and compositions like $\left(\sin\left(\cos(n\pi/3)\pi\right)\right)_n$. We describe an algorithm that computes a hypergeometric-type normal form of a given holonomic $n\text{th}$ term whenever it exists. Our implementation enables us to generate several identities for terms defined via trigonometric functions.
