S.I.N - 2003 Somewhere Into Nowhere

Jason Marks - vocals
Deddy Andler - guitars
Alexander Hlousek - drums
Wolfgang Frank - bass

If I read the bio from S.I.N correctly, and in particular their British vocalist Jason Marks, then he used to be in the band that became Balance of Power. What a shame they didn't keep him on, 'cause this guy's got some formidable pipes. Thankfully he hasn't been lost to melodic rock, emerging on the extremely strong debut from this Anglo/German quartet. Take a look at the favourite artists of these guys and you read a who's who of melodic rock, including Harem Scarem, Firehouse and Mr. Big. S.I.N have learnt well from their peers.

The Songs
There isn't anything groundbreaking about S.I.N, but in this musical climate they are a shining light for melodic rock. Very tight with instant harmonies and memorable songs. On a couple of tracks you can hear their appreciation of Harem Scarem, such as 'Throwing It All Away' and 'All Or Nothing'. They've also managed to get one of the strongest tracks of the year in opener 'Crucified'. Wonderful chorus and vocals from Jason Marks. It's also the heaviest track on the album, with most of the material ranging from mid tempo rockers to acoustically backed ballads. The ballad 'Learning To Live' is S.I.N at their melodic best.

In Summary
In a year that hasn't been that special for melodic rock releases, S.I.N have shown that there is still life in the old girl yet. A very fine debut and a very nice surprise. Looking forward to hearing more from Jason and the boys!
