SINNER is back! 3 years after their convincing power album „Crash & Burn“ and a line-up renewal, the new SINNER album „One Bullet Left“ will be released on September 9th. A surprisingly fresh, ambitious and biting album…
Since the middle of the 80´s the name SINNER is the epitome of rock solid in the hard & heavy scene. Despite band leader Mat Sinner´s involvement as musician and producer in bands and projects like Primal Fear, “Rock Meets Classic” and many others, every now and then the band luckily finds the time to write and record what their fans are impatiently waiting for: a new SINNER album!
This time a pleasant makeover and return to the band´s roots are what put the stamp on the new album “One Bullet Left”. Of course you can expect the SINNER-typical guitar harmonies and a high-quality base of tradition and honest, handmade Rock music, celebrated in a fresh and gutsy way.
The new SINNER line-up will make you listen up:
beside band leader Mat Sinner and guitarist Christof Leim, now powerhouse drummer Andre Hilgers (Rage), Tarja-/Farmer Boys guitarist Alex Scholpp, and the returning Alex Beyrodt (guitars) complete the 2011 line-up. Yes, now 3 guitars. That´s one louder!
In the glorious 80´s SINNER were Germany´s leading Rock act, beside the Scorpions, Accept and Helloween. Their classic albums “Touch Of Sin” and “Comin´ Out Fighting”, songs like “Knife In My Heart”, “Born To Rock” or “Germany Rocks” – SINNER delivered treasures that still hold their own nowadays and secured that SINNER was established in the international scene.
In the middle of the 90´s the band recorded the stunning “Bottom Line” and “Judgement Day” albums, followed by tours with Mr. Big and Savatage. 1998 saw SINNER achieve their biggest commercial success with their pure Metal album “The Nature Of Evil”, which entered the album charts in Germany at #63. A tour with legendary hard rock pioneers Deep Purple was succeeding. The next album “The End Of Sanctuary” was released in 2000, again hitting the Germany album charts, this time at #87. After an amazing tour with Ronnie James Dio the band members put focus of their other projects, like Primal Fear, Saxon or Masterplan, just to return 3 years later with the thunderous “There Will Be Execution” and a tour with Hammerfall – not to forget the legendary performance at the Wacken Open Air 2003. SINNER then became productive again in 2007 with the „Mask Of Sanity“ album, followed just one year after by their Rock´n´Roll rebirth in “Crash & Burn”. After the European tour SINNER (for the first time ever in their long-running career) toured South America and Russia.
The usual little break between two releases is over now. And “One Bullet Left” just picks up where “Crash & Burn” ended: more forceful, strong and with an outstanding display of delight in playing. SINNER at their very best! The new production will satisfy all supporters for sure, and it´s likely that SINNER will win over a lot of new fans. Beside 11 brand new songs (13 on the limited edition) also an amazing cover version of the Steve Stevens song “Atomic Playboys” can be found on the album.
“One Bullet Left” was recorded and produced in several studios in Europe by Mat Sinner, mixed and mastered then by Achim Köhler.
For the first single “Back On Trail” the band filmed a video clip with director Martin Müller and his team (RCN TV), in September then SINNER will be on tour in Europe. SINNER IS BACK!
