Debut album

Sin Twister’s self-titled debut album started off promisingly with a drumbeat ripe with rock attitude, and heavy metal tones. However, as soon as the voice is first heard the illusion of a perfect rock album is shattered.

That’s not to say the music itself and instrumental aspect is all bad. On the contrary the guitar riffs and drum backbone that carries the weight of the album is perfect for what Sin Twister was all about.

However, there are many other aspects to the album that outweigh that.

With one singer, although at times it sounds more like two, changing voices throughout the songs it gets confusing and annoying. Especially the higher voice, as it doesn’t blend with the overall flavour of the album. Mostly it just sounds like the drawstring of the singer’s shorts is rapidly tightening and loosening.

Perhaps experience is what’s needed to tone down the erratic variances.

Even the ‘scremo’ parts are better than the actual singing simply because they’re not so out of place.

Verdict: Sin Twister isn’t a talentless band with no hope in the world, it just need to add more experience to the operation before the band’s product is worth listening to more than once.
