Vicious Sinners

So, today I'm reviewing some Italian Hard Rock with Vicious Sinners, these guys have a classic feel reminding me of New Wave of British Heavy Metal. In particular the guitars have a very Judas Priest type sound. This should give you an idea about the riffs, they are simple and chunky and sound really good. It should be noted though that the solos are a lot more like those of Maiden. The bass is reminiscent of Steve Harris in places, one good example of this is the riff in the track Memory of Damnation which positively reeks of Maiden. (Thats a good thing) The drums are decent but nothing spectacular, the problem with them is that on some tracks the bass drum is way to strong and screws with the recording. The vocals actually remind me of NWOBHM band Raven they are pretty decent. The most notable thing about this singer is that he can really hold a note, it's fairly impressive. I have two recommendations for the guys in this band. The first, is to fix your mixing, if you edit the mix a bit you guys would be mindblowing. The second, GROW OUT YOUR HAIR. Thank You. Overall this is a decent band with a good sound who, with a bit of mixing, could be great.
OVERALL 7.5/10
