Sinner  


Sinner is one of the elder statesmen of German traditional metal. Like fellow veterans Running Wild, Helloween, Rage, and Grave Digger, these guys got their start in the early 80's and were one of the big early signings to Noise, and like the others, they've cranked out albums pretty reliably over the years, with lineup changes aplenty surrounding mainman Mat Sinner.
