There Will Be Execution

Sinner - There Will Be Execution - reviewed by: EC
I'm not really sure if you can classify There Will Be Execution with any of the band's previous work. This new offering mixes power thrash with the bands trademark hard rock sound. The combination proves very lethal, leaving myself and surely every other listener a severe case of whiplash. Every track on this disc is pure devestation. This is a crushing guitar frenzy that executes on every level; great songwriting, exceptional leads, cannon-fire drums, and spectacular vocals. The band has reloaded with new members Fritz Randow (Saxon,Victory) on drums and axe-god Tom Naumann (Primal Fear) on guitar. Fans of speed, aggression, and melody will find plenty to like from this metal offering. Fast tracks like Higher Level Of Violence, Requiem For A Sinner, and Finalizer blast by like a bullet, while songs like Die On Command, Locked And Loaded, and Black Monday dish up a heavy wall-smashing groove that asks to be cranked louder and louder. The European version includes a second disc with two previously released tracks and a cover of Metallica's Wherever I May Roam. In my opinion, this record is on par with Sinner classics like Bottom Line and Judgement Day in overall quality, and is far better than the previous two duds the band has dished out. I would definitely say this is Sinner's comeback album. Lets hope it stays this good! Reviewed by --EC 2.5.03
I have two words for this,fucking awsome. From the riffs of old found on tracks like "The River" to the more in your face stuff like "Die On Command", There Will Be Execution is an instant classic. Mats sinner and company display their best effort to date. Keep this nearby your CD player for months to come. I'd go as far as to say, this is the best damn cd I have heard since Unseen by Steel Prophet. If you do not have There Will Be Execution , buy it, and then pick up Judment Day and Second Decade!!!
First, go to sinner.rocks.de, or visit the label site at nuclearblast.de.
As far as vocal style, if I had to say what they sounded like, I would say Primal Fear (three of five bandmembers are from PF) mixed with some Gravedigger. And just as an added touch, throw in some Pegazus. Take the kick your teeth down your throat power of todays metal riffs, add some killer drumming ability. Throw that on top of some kick ass 80s style vocals, and you have Sinner. Trust me when I say buy There Will Be Execution. In no way will any metal fan be sorry! --IcedMojo 2.15.03
