Biography

There are several bands with name Sinner:

1) Sinner are a German heavy metal band formed in 1980 by vocalist and bassist Mat Sinner (Goddess Shiva, Primal Fear). Their most recent album, ‘Mask Of Sanity’ was released in January of 2007.

Based in Baden-Württemberg, Sinner released their first album, Wild’N’Evil’ in 1982. This album, along with the next two (‘Fast Decision’ and ‘Danger Zone’) were raw affairs, having little in common with the melodic metal they would later become known for. After many personnel changes, the band saw the addition of Accept’s Herman Frank on guitars and the release of ‘Touch Of Sin’ in 1985. Frank would leave before the next album, 1986’s ‘Comin’ Out Fighting’.

1987 saw the release of ‘Dangerous Charm’, a much more melodic album than previous efforts, but shortly after this the band took a break and wouldn’t be heard of again for five years.

In 1990 Mat Sinner released a solo album called ‘Back To The Bullet’ with a completely new band. This same band reformed Sinner and released ‘No More Alibis’ in 1992, an album far heavier than anything Sinner had released before. This renewed vigour coupled with songwriting that far exceeded the band’s previous releases not only carried on but strengthened with ‘Respect’ in 1994 and ‘Bottom Line’ in 1995, the latter staying in the Japanese national charts for five weeks. Since the reformation the band’s reputation had improved immensely, touring as support for bands such as Mr. Big and Savatage as well as headlining their own German tour and releasing a live album. Sinner were to reach even higher peaks though, releasing two hugely successful albums with ‘Judgement Day’ in 1997 and ‘The Nature Of Evil’ in 1998 before touring Europe as support for rock giants Deep Purple.
