We get to hear a mix of big guitar riffs and melodic hardrock choruses, kinda like the 2nd HAREM SCAREM classic ‘Mood swings’ and SHAKRA.

S.I.N.’s new album is called “Equilibrium” and the title refers to the balance the band members have found since they started some three years ago. But that’s not all, because “Equilibrium” also refers to the balance among the new songs. “Somewhere Into Nowhere” was good, but the new material is even better.

I wrote about S.I.N.`s debut a few years ago and I was really impressed over their songs and talents. They are now back with their second release Equilibrium. Since the debut they have musically changed from playing Melodic Hardrock to a more Melodic Metal oriented style, but still with much focus on the melodies.Already with the opener Nail It To The Wall we hear that they have changed their style to a more melodic metal oriented style. The guitars are rougher and the song is heavier and harder, but still with the good melody intact.

Before startin' this review, I should let the reader know that this band's actual name is Somewhere Into Nowhere, which abreviates nicely enough into S.I.N.!

In long words "S.I.N." means "Somewhere Into Nowhere" something unknown, incalculable and according to the CD-Info also the beginning of new musical adventure. And without a doubt this is what this album is all about. The songs on „Equilibrium“ show how exciting Melodic Metal can be.

The 2. Album "Equilibrium" by S.I.N. is anything else but "Somewhere Into Nowhere". Finest melodic metal comes out of the speakers [...]
Energetic songs, fresher and a bit harder than on the band's debut.

Che bello l’AOR quando è ben eseguito! Questo è il secondo lavoro dei Somewhere Into Nowhere (S.I.N) del chitarrista Deddy Andler. Provenienti dall’Inghilterra, si formano nel 2002 e danno alla luce, l’anno successivo, “S.I.N.” che, pensate un po’, raggiunge addirittura il terzo posto nel famoso magazine Giapponese Burrn!

With their debut "Somewhere Into Nowhere" (2003) S.I.N. have released a quite remarkable Melodicrock-Album and put a real aim to reach for the follow-up. But it seems that the quintett just easily beats this level with "Equilibrium".

Within the first titel "Nail It To The Wall" everything is clear: power, superb melodies and a production on top niveau meet on this record.

Yet another album that is described as metallic metal even though it far more resembles Alcatrazz or Dokken. 'Walk Away' sounds like that latter band's track you can't place. Jason Marks does a wonderful line in Graham Bonnet-isms when not sounding like Glenn Hughes at his least pretentious. Such a vibe can be found on the ballad 'For Getting Over Us'. 'Nightwinds' on the other hand is pure Europe Scandi-rock done with the same level of class. Shades of Rainbow show up in various places notably 'Since You Been Gone' era. This is 80s hard rock done very well indeed. When it is this good its very hard to resist. Its not wonder Burrn! magazine have raved about these guy's previous CD. While maybe not always the most original material in the world, S.I.N. still manage to have pulled off a rather good hard rock album.

Rating 4/5

The second strike of german melodicgods "S.I.N." gives us just about anything the heart deserves, killer hooks, power strength and musical esprit. „Somewhere Into Nowhere“ or just „S.I.N.“ were founded 3 years ago by guitarist Deddy Andler and british singer Jason Marks. With „Equilibrium“ the guys made a big step in the right direction, as with the debut one might miss the last cut and power to the songs. But „S.I.N.“ compensated for all this and put the „Creme dela Creme“ of Melodic Metal on the table.
