Their greatest body of work since the mid-nineties.

When you're thirty-five years into a career as stalwarts and protectors of the Heavy Metal and Hard Rock scene that's still alive and very much breathing in Germany, with seventeen albums under your belt and your best days tucked away behind you, what do you do? Well, if you're Sinner, you find yourself tapping into the well of nostalgia that so many bands, new and old, are sipping from in their search for the golden sound of eighties Rock 'n' Roll.

From the opening Punk and Roll express of 'Go Down Fighting', its namesake hook hitting as hard as a haymaker at the speed of light, it's clear that Sinner's eighteenth studio effort – 'Tequila Suicide' – is so far rooted into the eighties it could've slotted itself fittingly between their eighties hey-day hits – 1983's 'Fast Decision' and 1984's 'Danger Zone'.

From the ferocious flaming pits of fiery power solos slaying across lyrical landscapes of fantasy, to Thin Lizzy-aping eighties Riff and Rock, to a crash course in Country Blues, '...Suicide' is the work of a weapon of nostalgia reaching its crossroads and a band refusing to let themselves fall to the curse of old age, instead opting to create their greatest body of work since the mid-nineties.

Fireworks - The Ultimate Magazine For Melodic Rock Music

From the moment its curtain raises to the moment it comes back down, '...Suicide' is an album made to be heard in the realm of live music, whether it be the chant-inducing 'Road To Hell' or the march-making 'Battle Hill'. Sinner, in showcasing their ability to shred as hard as Scott Gorham, have carefully crafted a record so rooted in and ready for the live arena that it would be criminally unjust to imagine it in any other setting. On any one of the albums inordinately indulgent power solos, particularly the song-making solo of 'Why', you'll find yourself sub-consciously sliding across your floor, air guitaring your way through your surroundings without a single care in the world.

In a landscape of music where many of the eighties Heavy Metal gems are throwing themselves back into the battlefield, trading on weapons of nostalgic noise only, Sinner find themselves breaking away from the pack and leading a rebellious charge in the form of 'Tequila Suicide' which is, without a doubt, the best thing they've released since 'Nature Of Evil'.
