  BREAKING NEWS SINNER TO RE-RECORD CLASSIC TRACKS
11th November 2012



matt sinner



The German classic Metal band, Sinner, are to re-record some of their classic tracks for release in an effort to take back control of their own back catalogue from the record business.

Bassist/Singer Mat Sinner said: "When we were younger and new to the music business, we were proud to be part of the Noise Records family and to get the chance to sign a contract with them.

"Reading this contract so many years later, you can't but shake your head in disbelief and wonder what must have possessed us. The exclusive rights to the recordings have since been bought and sold numerous times with the effect that none of those who owned them has ever had any relation to either the production itself or to how it was created.

"Today, the older Sinner songs still enjoy great popularity within the scene. We continue to play them live even though the CDs aren't available any longer. It is Universal who owns the albums at the moment - but does not distribute the CDs.

"Therefore, they're to be held responsible that CDs from this era can only be purchased at exorbitant prices. Unfortunately, the musicians and songwriters involved have no means of dealing with the matter - our hands are tied.

"When I offered to do a remix on several songs for a Best-Of album, I was told that the original tapes have mysteriously disappeared and were probably burned in an 'accidental' fire. That much about the pearls of our past.

"AFM Records, business partners for many years, came up with the idea to once again record the best songs from this era.

"Initially, I was sceptical. I finally agreed to put this plan into action under one condition: the whole band has to lock themselves into the studio and record the whole thing together.

"I'm fed up with the assumption that it works if everyone records their stuff at home or comes cheaper. That's bullshit - this challenge meets us at exactly the right time and we'll face it!"

Sinner: 'Touch Of Sin 2' is expected to be released on AFM Records on 30th August 2013.






WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
