MANIC SINNERS – King Of The Badlands (2022)
To be released by Frontiers Music this week, MANIC SINNERS‘ debut album “King Of The Badlands” promises to be one of the most exciting surprises in the international landscape of hard and melodic rock. Manic Sinners’ sound has all the elements that fans of this style love: soaring vocals, crushing riffs, blistering solos, ear candy hooks, and a splendid power ballad.
Adrian Igrisan, who is in charge of keyboards and drums in Manic Sinners, is best known for being the singer and guitarist of Cargo, Romania’s most beloved rock band. With multiple gold records and countless sold-out concerts, he has shared the stage with legends like Iron Maiden, Uriah Heep, and Gillan. Adrian is undoubtedly one of Eastern Europe’s most iconic musicians and Manic Sinners are a new and exciting adventure with two more great guys.
Vocal powerhouse Ovidiu Anton, indisputably one of the best new Romanian rock singers, gained major exposure in 2016 by winning the Eurovision Song Contest National Selection. He is also the lead singer and founder of the band Anton and a successful solo artist.
Guitar slinger Toni Dijmarescu, who handles the guitar and bass parts, resides in the German region of Saarland, where he is a busy and well-respected live and studio musician, with numerous productions under his belt.
You’ll be surprised by the quality melodic hard rock from these guys, perhaps new faces for the West Europe scene, but second to none.
