Brand New Sin

"When a band follows in the tradition of legends like Iron Maiden, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Black Sabbath and powers its rock with three guitarists it ends up sounding like Motorhead after a fist fight with Down and Corrosion Of Conformity. Hailing from Syracuse, once considered the straight edge, hardcore capitol of the world, Brand New Sin features former members of the critically acclaimed metalcore band Godbelow. Thanks to its masculine riffs and brawny vocals, Brand New Sin could easily redefine Syracuse as a town that produces solid, blue-collar rock bands, as opposed to manufacturing samey moshcore. Brand New Sin, named after what the band describes as the "birth of something bad and the epitome of gluttony," formed when Godbelow wanted to go in a new direction. Since Godbelow embodied a specific type of reputation, the band decided to change their name in accordance with their new sound. BNS now resembles a mesmerizing amalgam of sludgy, dirt-under-the-fingernails, calloused skin rock and down home, southern style blues".
