Sinner (Music - Drowning Pool)

You’ve gotta love a band that shares a name with a mystery novel by Ross MacDonald. Drowning Pool are all stern, rumbling, noirish metal, every inch as hard-boiled as one of MacDonald’s yarns. They wisely dispense with trendy hip-hop trimmings and just kick it old-school headbanger style, offering strangulated yowls, gut-punching bass lines, and ominous guitar riffs. Dive in, metal maniacs.
