US power metal veterans ATTACKER from New Jersey come back with their 6th full-length, the follow-up to the critically acclaimed “Giants of Canaan”. Some people doubted that they can write an equally good one, let alone top it, but here they are again, with a blistering slice of old school American metal, just a bit more aggressive this time around. “Sins of the World” is the last album featuring guitarist Pat Marinelli, who co-founded the band with drummer Michael Sabatini and now decided to step down, after contributing a few solos. There has been a change on the bass player position (Brian Smith replaced Jon Hanemann), while the main songwriter of “Giants…”, guitarist Mike Benetatos, now became the sole songwriter, and Bobby “Leather Lungs” Lucas wrote the lyrics and showed his impressive vocal skills once again. In 2017 the band will come back to Europe to play a few festival dates, including Pounding Metal fest in Madrid and Up the Hammers in Athens in May, and Headbangers Open Air in the north of Germany in July.
