“Review of DOWN BY MY SINS Live Show Under the auspices of a full moon, Down By My Sins arrives at a venue whose disturbingly generic, industrial name ominously sets the stage for the Dark Age sonorifics. For the good people of Empire City who arrived early, that clear, bright evening bestowed an extra healthy double-dose of concept-oriented metal. After a brief pitstop, our fellow sinners, being Rocker Al on Battle-Axe, Jim Parkinson the Vox ,Pete Malvese on Infrasonics, and Pat Squid on Batterie, proceeded to deliver us all into visions of blood-soaked battlefields of medieval violence, the savage, yet fitting demise of a Roman emperor-despot, and a brutally realistic introspection into the self defeating machinations of our own human folly. Down By My Sins strolled onto the stage with the confidence of a band whose time has come and played as if they were filling a stadium with tidal waves of furious magnificence.”
“A review of the metal band Down By My Sins performance, On first inspection, a soundcheck. Whether referential to the purposeful event- What matters is that it happened. The constituency is as basic as animal survival: guitar, bass, drums and the voice. Lurking ears are sparse, but present and waiting. Upon further inspection, details begin to emerge... With a solid understanding of what makes balls-to-the-wall metal, "Rocker Al" as he prefers to be called, is a natural-born showman of the classic guitar-god mold while still managing to maintain a warm, affable, Everyman composure. Interspersed with the tried and true rock guitar leads is an exploratory hold and sample technique on his travels up the fretboard, punctuated by an occasional high register burst, a distinguishing characteristic. This and his steady, persistent crunch provides the red-hot engine which drives the concept-oriented framework of Down By My Sins.”
