Hammerhead - The Sin Eater

The Sin Eater
by Sebastien “Bass” Parent at 23 September 2015, 9:40 PM

Hello Temple, I am here today reviewing HAMMERHEAD“The Sin Eater”. When doing my research on this band, I was stunned to learn that they formed in 1978. This is such a long time for a band to stick together. But looking at their discography, I realise that they didn’t do much between 1978 and 2005; mostly demos and live songs. This year, this New Wave of British Heavy Metal band, are giving us their second full-length album to date. It is an average album in my humble opinion.

It isn’t a bad album, but expects for some small parts, I feel like it has been done before. The voice doesn’t really stands out of the crowd; I think it would have been a lot better with a bit more life in the voice. The guitar and bass are good, but without being out of the world. The drum is alright too. The overall feeling of the album is nice; I have nothing really bad to say about it.

There is one song that I really liked. This is part of those small parts I was talking about:
“Psilocybin”: This song is a really good Progressive piece; it was the most enjoyable song of the album. The first half of the song is pretty normal, a good song with great melody. But then around 6:30, the song slows down for some storytelling, with a guitar solo going on in the background for most of the 6 minutes left. It is a great way to close out the album.

In conclusion; I wouldn’t recommend that you blindly buy this album. Maybe try out a few songs before; it might appeal to you more than others. It is a fair but an average album at most. I feel like it’s missing a few little things only to bring it up to a new level.
