Biography of Band
|Since the early 80s, the name Sinner has stood like a rock in the surf, a brand name for strong metal that get under the skin. Their new album ‚ÄúThere will be Execution‚ÄĚ will be released on 20.01.03 and will be definitely the strongest album in the legendary band's history. You will get 11 neck-crushing tracks that show Sinner from their strongest side, creating instantly recognizable and memorable heavy metal. Mat Sinner (vocals, bass) explained to German Hammer Magazine, ‚ÄúWe would like to record an album without any chorus, orchestra and overdubs - a rock n' roll album which shows the elemental power of metal!"
With ‚ÄúThere will be Execution‚ÄĚ the band maintains its top position in the German rock and metal scene, lasting and very impressive. In the glorious 80s , Sinner presented itself as one of Germany's premier acts along side bands like Accept or Helloween and with songs like ‚ÄúTouch of Sin‚ÄĚ or "Coming Out Fighting‚ÄĚ. They will be forever immortalized on the metal Mt. Olympus. Songs like ‚ÄúKnife in my Heart,‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúBorn to Rock‚ÄĚ or ‚Äú Germany Rocks‚ÄĚ rely on the German cultural property and establish Sinner as an international trademark. After a short rest, Mat Sinner was back with his magnificant solo album ‚ÄúBack to the Bullet,‚ÄĚ which incorporated aspects of the previous albums but was a bit more "rock n' roll" and "dirty." In the mid '90s Sinner came back with albums like ‚ÄúBottom Line‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúJudgement Day‚ÄĚ and overall great reviewed liveshows in Europe. In 1998, the band had their greatest commercial success with ‚ÄúThe Nature Of Evil,‚ÄĚ which achieved position 63 in the German Top 100 album charts. After that Sinner, went on tour as special guests to rock giants Deep Purple and proved itself to more than 60,000 fans.
Sinner was here for good. With this ringing endorsement, nothing could go wrong in 1999 at the Wacken Open Air where Sinner impressed more than 20,000 fans. Sinner welcomed the new millenium with their new masterpiece ‚ÄúThe End of Sanctuary,‚ÄĚ which was also successful in the German Charts at position 87. After a tour with DIO, the band members concentrated on other musical projects like "Primal Fear" and "Saxon" and collected fresh energy for their new clap of thunder ‚Äú There will be Execution‚ÄĚ. The album was again recorded at the House Of Music Studio and produced by Mat Sinner. The opening songs ‚ÄúHigher Level Of Violence‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúThere Will be Execution‚ÄĚ show the unique way of Sinner, anno 2003. Rough, uncomproimising and full of power! With the songs ‚ÄúRequiem For A Sinner,‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúFinalizer‚ÄĚ and ‚Äú God Raises The Dead,‚ÄĚ Sinner is again successful in creating an uncomparable power and to define the word ‚Äúguitar riff‚ÄĚ in a new way and don't forget the outstanding drums of Saxon/Sinner drum legend Fritz Randow, who again proves that he is one of the most powerful drummers on this planet.
The outstanding guitar twins Tom Naumann and Henry Wolter know always which situation they have to offer the so-called ‚Äú Atomic Dur‚ÄĚ riffs & leads. Opon that, Mat Sinner convinces with his typical and sovereign bass and his well known raw rock n' roll feeling in his voice. The slower riff-rockers ‚ÄúLocked & Loaded‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúDie On Command‚ÄĚ are layden with the typical Sinner groove and the live performance will take the fans to euphoria. Of course, Sinner serves also the melodic rock fans with the song ‚ÄúThe River‚ÄĚ which is really an ‚Äúearworm‚ÄĚ but shows also the dark side of the band. Groovy sounds will be found on ‚ÄúLiberty Of Death‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúBlack Monday.‚ÄĚ With ‚Äú Crown Of Thorns,‚ÄĚ an accoustic ballad ends the CD, showcasing a dark atmosphere. ‚ÄúThere Will be Execution‚ÄĚ is an unbelievable album that leads traditional metal to inexhaustible variety, musical authority and sensational melodies. The album comes out in the first edition as a limited Double-CD inclusive the 3-Track Single ‚ÄúWherever I May Roam‚ÄĚ, which will be avaliable just in this edition
Again, the band showed on their live shows, that they still kick ass and are the real deal. They played with their labelmates HammerFall in Germany, for the first time in the US at the New Jersey Metalfest and two exciting performances at the Wacken Open Air and the Summer Breeze Open Air - SINNER will be there forever!
