The first pressing of THERE WILL BE EXECUTION includes an extra disc with three bonus tracks including a cover of Metallica's "Wherever I May Roam."
Sinner: Matt Sinner (vocals); Tom Naumann, Henry Wolter (guitar); Fritz Randow (drums).
Sinner's Teutonic power metal combines crunch and melody, occasionally grafting hyper-speed thrash metal chops over relatively conventional chord progressions and song arrangements. Most of the tunes are anchored by great riffs and huge, foursquare rock grooves, rather than wholesale brutality or extremism, and there are even some flat-out commercial moments. Fans of melodic-yet-muscular metal bands like Accept or Dio will probably find much to enjoy here, and the hair-raising guitar solos will likely have progressive metal fans on the edge of their seats. Sinner clearly knows how to play inside the box and remain interesting at the same time (the vocoder tag in "The River" is a particularly surprising touch!). All in all, There Will Be Execution has plenty of highlights and is a satisfying listen from front to back. ~ Andy Hinds
