Self-described as “party rock”, these Baltimore guys pretty much hit the nail on the head with that description. Sin 4 Sin sound pretty much like what you’d imagine given their name — equal parts sleaze and glam, they are good time rock ‘n’ roll.
There’s been a lot of comparisons to the Skid Row of old and it’s not hard to see why — vocalist Brandon Hayden sounds a lot like Sebastian Bach. This is especially true on “Take It Off” but on the excellent “I Quit Drinking (Again)” I think he also sounds a lot like Kevin DuBrow. Brandon’s voice still fits the snotty attitude & vibe of most guys that sing sleaze rock but there’s more range and power there than with most sleaze vocalists.
“Take It Off” is pure sleaze goodness and “My Girlfriend Always Gets Arrested” drives home the comparison to Skid Row even more as it displays the punky side that Skid Row occasionally had. This 3-song E.P.’s real highlight is the in-your-face “I Quit Drinking (Again)”.
FINALLY! A great, young sleaze/glam band that isn’t European! Sin 4 Sin are definitely a band worth watching out for. They’ve already shared the stage with similar acts like L.A. Guns, Faster Pussycat, Vains of Jenna, The Last Vegas and Charm City Devils but I think they’re ready to get hooked up with an opening slot for bands like Motley Crue, Buckcherry, KISS, Hinder and Guns N’ Roses.
