X-Sinner are the band that everyone in the white metal world are talking about right now. This, their debut release is produced by John and Dino Elfante, two of the most successful Christian producers. One of the strange things about this band is that their song titles are more overtly Christian than the lyrical content. However, the band can clearly be seen to be Christian. X-Sinner make good use of humour which is a welcome change for white metal music, with lyrics like "Me and my lady, we see eye to eye, we are both five foot nine". The band also talk about catching a cold at work on the song "Medicine" which is probably the best song on the album. Musically X-Sinner are obviously influenced by AC/DC and at times Def Leppard. The album is blessed by excellent production with a good up front guitar sound and clear vocals. This has to be one of the best white metal albums for some time. It is good to hear good Christian rock 'n ' roll based metal. The only problem I have with the band is their name - far too cliched for me, and probably a lot of unsaved metal fans, to handle.
