X-sinner-World covered in blood
How can you copy an established band yet still come out sounding good? I don't normally like to begin a reivew with a question because I hope to provide answers more than questions. However that opening question went through my mind while listening to this disc. The band they copy is AC/DC who are easily one of the most copied hard rock bands around. However not everyone that copies or is influenced by them is able to succeed. X-sinner know what they are doing as they know the hooks and the pace, but they also have a fantastic grasp of how to reel how some mighty grooves. "World covered in blood" is very much rooted in the sound AC/DC perfected bewteen about 77-79. The tight squeezed guitar riffs, the raw vocals and the instantly likable choruses are all here. Granted they copy AC/DC down to even tiny details. That's not where their skills end. They go at it with more energy than AC/DC have in thirty years and the attitude that X-sinner are experts at this skill. There are indeed a lot of bands who attempt to produce this sound and many get the chords down, but there is far more to it than just notes and X-sinner know that. This is straight shooting, fun hard rock. I liked it right away and will definitely come back to it often.
