MIDNIGHT SIN / Sex First (2014)

Midnight Sin is a new band that combines perfectly the glory 80's Hair Metal Sunstrip Scene of L.A. with a strong dose of sleaze Hard Rock but with some AOR-ish pinches as well. And that means big and loud guitars, clever hooks and choruses and most of all attitude!

"Midnight Revolution", the first track of the album, has it all; a heavy riffing, in-your-face performances and an late 80's, early 90's, feeling. "Feed Me With Lies" could be easily released back in time when Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Ratt, Winger and Guns N Roses ruled the airwaves! It's a killer heavy rock gem with a great chorus line that takes no prisoners. "You Piss Me Off" is an acoustic, 'punchy' and cool at the same time mid-tempo rocker while in "Rise & Yell" we are dealing with another party Rock 'n' Roll track with blistering guitars, sweet an' sleaze vocals and a nice chorus line. "2 Words" is movin' to some more modern hard rock paths and "Sweet Pain", that closes the album, is a so beautiful and emotional ballad!!

All in all, Midnight Sin with "Sex First" brings back memories and sounds from another era; an era when Rock 'n' Roll was pure, fan and with lots of attitude. Taste it!
