"Sin Sandwich" (Self-released)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Dr. Mastermind's "Sin Sandwich" is fast, furious and loud, but it takes more than that to make a good heavy metal release. Often the subject matter here is about sex and drinking but, again, that's no guarantee of great music. 

On their CD Baby page, Dr. Mastermind claims to sound something like a cross between Motorhead and Judas Priest. Sorry, folks, I don't hear any of those legendary bands here at all. Frankly, I found this release to be boring and unimaginative and I need a lot more than that, especially these days, to hold my attention.

Sometimes a band tries too hard and that may be the case with Dr. Mastermind and "Sin Sandwich."

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.
