"Sanctified" (Nightmare Records)

Reviewed by Snidermann


"Sanctified," by Cain's Alibi, is an exploration into the dark and twisted side of humanity. Cainís Alibi has a strong and noticeable hair band influence, however, this shit blows the crap out of all the hair bands of the 80s. The musical interpretation of Cainís Alibi is at the same time haunting and inspiring. 

Even though I liked the band's music, I found the subject matter a bit too dark and apocalyptic for my taste. Regardless, I look forward to hearing more from Cain's Alibi in the future.

Cainís Alibi is: Paul Miller - lead vocals and guitars; Krister Pihi - guitars and backing vocals; Mark Christenson - bass and backing vocals; Derrick Dotterweich - drums and backing vocals. 

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
