Sinner - Tequila Suicide

Ha, with nearly 20 releases and a bunch of compilations out there, going on since the very early 80s, Sinner have certainly paid their dues and are due some respect, because of being at it for so long through the ups and downs, but they were never “legendary”, despite the occasional good albums and they had they fair share of flops.

Cloven Hoof almost managed to make a lasting impressing in the NWOBHM, certainly blessed with the flair to write great songs – but cursed with almost never having the right singer. The dismissal of their most prominent vocalist Russ North, under mysterious circumstances to say the least, led to an album with some poseur “reality TV” guy, who had...

Skyclad - Forward Into the Past

Skyclad had taken a backseat with their members taking a much deserved sabbatical after years and years of toiling it in the studio and on stage, with certain ones simply enjoying life, with the occasional performance here and there, while others (ie Graeme English and Steve Ramsey) actually channeling their creativity into a re-emergent Satan (a NWOBHM band they...
