Bitches Sin

Bitches Sin are best remembered for one of the better indie NWOBHM songs ever, "Strangers On The Shore", one of the best tracks on the legendary Heavy Metal Heroes compilation in 1981. But the band stumbled, with their 1982 debut album Predator, already with a different lineup, suffered from a poor production, listless songs, and even a vastly inferior version of "Strangers". After disappearing from sight for several years, they somehow reappeared on the tiny American label King Klassic with Invaders, a somewhat quirky release that, though not outstanding, was pretty interesting in places and thus a huge improvement over Predator. In the intervening years the band has kept a low profile, with some members also appearing in the rock band Flashpoint. The band is active to this day, and not only that, noted producer Chris Tsangarides has signed up as an official member.
