A lot of time has passed since 1982 and the release of "Wild 'n' Evil", Sinner's first album. "Santa Muerte", the last one from the Germans, goes back three years. Less successful than "Tequila Sunrise" its predecessor, the work nevertheless satisfied the followers of Thin Lizzy and heavy rock from across the Rhine. Matt Sinner bring back the same crew as on "Santa Muerte". However, the small family has been enlarged by several prestigious guests. Some fine voices came to participate in the party to support  Sinner on the microphone: Martensson (Eclipse), Sheepers (Primal Fear), Romero (Lords Of Black) and Englund (Evergrey). 

The combo's style doesn't change and that won't surprise anyone. No matter the fashions that come and go and the interventions of the master of the place at Primal Fear or Voodoo Circle, Sinner is his baby and he feeds it with the sounds of his idols. Thus, once again, the shadow of Phil Lynott's band sometimes hangs over the German-style heavy metal plains of this production, from which Pretty Maids is also not very far.

The work conceals some hits in the middle of tracks of correct quality. It should be noted that almost all the most brilliant tracks are close to Thin Lizzy. More melodious and less basic, but not necessarily less powerful than their counterparts, they leave the beaten paths of a smashing but rudimentary metal which attaches more importance to the power of its riffs than to the quality of its melodious lines.

The hard rocker people will easily find something to break his neck on this opus. But, as far as the outstanding compositions are concerned, they will have to be satisfied with a half-album. Among these satisfactions, let's highlight the energetic 'Bulletproof', as well as the sensational eponymous track which turns out to be a real tribute to Phil Lynott's band. Let's also mention the ballad '40 Days And 40 Nights' and the masterly and long instrumental break of 'The Man They Couldn't Hang'.

This "Brotherhood" will delight the amateurs of big riffs and furious soli, and will hook  the music lovers attracted by the melodious finesses of Thin Lizzy and Pretty Maids. Matt Sinner, while enjoying himself by honoring his idols, will probably satisfy a large audience with this opus with two faces.

THRASH - Destruction offers with "Diabolical" a high-flying thrash metal with a nice freshness and a great dynamism.

BLACK METAL - Cradle of an epic black metal with heavy metal accents, "The Goddess" confirms the singular identity occupied by Slægt, producer of a material as strange as rough.
