Rocking since 1988, X-Sinner have managed to keep their place at the head of the Christian classic metal scene with their traditional AC/DC-style sound. This incredibly close similarity does, however, pay off here. X-Sinner keep their message strong but often with a nudge to the band who influenced them (the opening track "Back In Red" certainly says it all!). Despite such comedy overtones, elsewhere X-Sinner stay true to their faith and push a strong Christian message ("Wanna Be Set Free" and "Forgive Them" standing out lyrically). With good, tight musicianship, superb solos and hooks I was humming constantly to tracks such as "Holy Ghost & Fire". Overall, this is a strong album that lovers of old school metal will want to search out.
