Master Creator
March 2016
Released: 2016, AFM Records
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: Waspman

As of this writing in February 2016, it’s a quick return for Germany’s Sinbreed, who released their second album, SHADOWS, a little less than two years ago. Not bad for a band who had a four-year gap between albums #1 and #2. Blind Guardian’s Marcus Siepen joined the band for SHADOWS, but has since departed to focus on his main group. Other than that, not much has changed in the band’s camp; it’s still the same four guys who started the band years ago under their original name, Neoshine.

Not much has changed for the band musically, either. They’re still bashing out accomplished Teutonic power metal that has been their calling card since day one. In other words, this is awesome! The album kicks wide open with my personal three favorite cuts, particularly the high-energy “Creation of Reality”. Herbie Langhans’ gruff vocals lead the way while the bright production allows the crunch of Flo Laurin’s guitar to shine as well. Fans of Iron Savior, Grave Digger, Gamma Ray etc. will love this and have no trouble head banging their way through the album.

Just like last time out, a couple of the tracks that show up later in the sequence aren’t quite up to the standard set by the opening trio, but there are still diamonds throughout to ensure the album is no letdown. Sinbreed are quickly becoming one of the top power metal bands in the world, and efforts like MASTER CREATOR will only strengthen their claim.
