X-SINNER - World Covered In Blood
Image Records




Metal For Jesus Cross Metal For Jesus Cross Metal For Jesus Cross Metal For Jesus Cross

X-Sinner is back again! This is the first new studio album for many years. The biggest difference between this album and their previous is the production.X-Sinner was never happy with the production of their first two albums. They thought it sounded way too slick and polished and didn't hadthe punch the band intended. After years of work they have therefore recorded a new album that sounds anything but polished. Instead you get a raw almost live feeling while listening to this album. The sound really captures the energy of the band well and I really like the crunchy guitars. Something I really love with this band is also that they always give us plenty of catchy melodic hooks and tasty guitar solos to enjoy. Rex's raspy voice also fits the music well. Favourite tracks are Got Something To Say, That Ain't Me, Ready To Go and the title track. All in all a solid releasewith many great tracks. I still hold the Get It album as my favourite album with X-Sinner but World Covered In Blood definately takes the second place.

X-SINNER - Fire It Up
Retroactive Records




Metal For Jesus Cross Metal For Jesus Cross Metal For Jesus Cross Metal For Jesus Cross

X-Sinner was never happy with the production of the Peace Treaty album. They thought it sounded way too commercial and didn't hadthe punch the band intended. So now when the band has reformed again they thought it was time to do something about it, so theydecided to rerecord the album. Here is the result. I think they have done a great job. It sounds heavier than the original and there are more guitarsolos. Added as extra bonus there is also a new track titled Fire It Up that will be on their next album. And it do sounds promising!Rex sings just as great as he did back in the day and musically it has that catchy X-Sinner melodic hardrock/metal vibe that you just got tolove. In conclusion Fire It Up is a really cool album that is definately worth checking out.

X-SINNER - Get It
Pakaderm Records




Metal For Jesus Cross Metal For Jesus Cross Metal For Jesus Cross Metal For Jesus Cross Metal For Jesus Cross

This is X-Sinners first and classic album. Soundwise it's reminding of AC/DC and Cinderella, but X-Sinner is both faster and heavier in all ways. Tune after tune just shreds with melodic hooks, crunchy guitars and that megacool raspy voice! If you are looking for a christian alternative to AC/DC this is the perfect choice. Personal fave's on the album are Steppin' on Toes and No Way In. If you like melodic hardrock/metal you will love this. If you like AC/DC you will love this. Can't go wrong with this release, it's truly a classic, one of those albums that you just don't wanna miss. So do yourself a favour and go and Get It or you will regret it!

X-SINNER - Peace Treaty
Pakaderm Records

It's hard to follow up a classic. That's a problem X-Sinner had to face when they recorded this album. Another thing they had to deal with was a new singer, since David Robbins had quit the band. The new singer is Rex Scott. (Rex Scott sang in the band Zion for those of you that remember). I prefer David's voice before Rex Scott's, even though Rex has a good raspy voice as well. The production on this album is too soft sounding and unfortunately don't got the crunch Get it had. The tempo is also slower than Get It but you can still feel their characteristic moving AC/DC-influenced sound. With this said, this is still definately an album worth checking out. Cause what you get here are some great melodic metal tunes with hooks that directly goes to your head and won't let you go. My fave's are Hold On, You Got Me and All I Need. Another personal fave with a heartgripping message is the anti-suicide tune Don't Go. The lyrics goes like this:
"The time was spent together was truly heaven sent. But the price of loneliness is one that's overspent. I know life can hurt you, I know that life can make you wanna die. But the truth can set you free. All you have to do is ask and believe."
You got to hear this tune and feel the emotion in it. It really touches your heart for those that take their lives as well as their relatives and friends who is left with a great void. If you are struggling with suicide thoughts right now, I just want to tell you that no matter what you face and how bad your situation is God can always help you out, just call on his name and He WILL help you. Suicide is NEVER a solution, it only causes pain and misery.

All in all I like this album and I recommend it, even though it's not in the caliber of Get It. Nonetheless, this is definately an album worth checking out and I'll give it a 3+ rating.

X-SINNER - Loud & Proud
Magdalene Records




Metal For Jesus Cross Metal For Jesus Cross Metal For Jesus Cross Metal For Jesus Cross

X-Sinner is back again! After many years break the melodic headbangers in X-Sinner are now back again with a new album. The cd is a special edition limited to only 1300 copies. It contains both unreleased tunes and different versions of album tunes from their two earlier albums. The production is good. Their nice groovy sound is immediately recognized and makes me think about the time when their classic album Get It was released. A classic already then and it still is. If you haven't heard X-Sinner before they sound like a christian AC/DC, but heavier and with more speed and crunch. Both singers, especially David Robbins have a great raspy voice.

All in all this cd is not really in league with Get It (should have been more speedy tunes), but it's definately a must have to all fans of X-Sinner. And since it's limited to only 1300 copies you better get it quick before they are all gone...

X-TERRA - Wolves
Independent Release




Metal For Jesus Cross Metal For Jesus Cross Metal For Jesus Cross Metal For Jesus Cross

The 80s were the golden era of Metal. X-Terra is a three-piece-band that was active then and still is.Wolves is their latest release. Singer Bill Hunt has a good slightly raspy rock'n'roll voice that fitsthe music well. When it comes to the music this is 80s Metal all the way, meaningthat it's very melodic and that there are plenty of hooks and guitarsolos to enjoy. Lyrics are very Biblical and shows that the band really cares for people.Great lyrics overall and the presence of God can really be felt when you listen to this cd.

Some tunes that stick out are All The Way, God's Grace, It Isn't Love, The Sun Will Shine Again and It Doesn't Matter.The guitar solos on the album are really enjoyable. Prouction is also well done, although this is an independent release.

Overall Wolves is a great cd that grows more and more on me the more I listen to it. There are only a few tunes I can't get into.Listening to X-Terra is like finding a lost treasure from the 80s. So if you are like me and love Melodic 80s Metal then this is a band you really should check out!
