Sinner: There Will Be Execution

Deep Purple's Ian Gillian once crowned veteran old-school German headbangers Sinner as that band's "best special guests of the '90s." Say what? Either Deep Purple must have had some lousy opening acts or Sinner sounds a lot more impressive live than they do on disc. There Will Be Execution, Sinner's umpteenth album, boasts a lot of Saxon-meets-Accept thrash-and-burn attitude witness the name of the album and such song titles as "Higher Level of Violence," "Liberty of Death" and "Die on Command."

Sinner, led by founder/singer/bassist Mat Sinner (Primal Fear), bombards listeners with straight-ahead blasts that lack creativity. Sinner's gravelly voice recalls Dave Mustaine and even Udo Dirkschneider, and it's hard to take him seriously. The major high points come during the guitar solos from former Primal Fear axemen Henny Wolter and Tom Naumann. But when these five guys try to break out of the band's standard style, as on the pathetic AOR wannabe "The River" and the tough-guy ballad "Crown of Thorns," they sound practically clueless.

Still, longtime Sinner fans will probably eat this up.
