X-Sinner is an American Christian heavy metal band formed in the late 1988 by guitarist Greg Bishop. The band is known for having a very similar sound to that of AC/DC. They were named the favorite new band of 1989 by the readers of HM Magazine. Their first two albums were produced by John Elefante and released on Pakaderm Records, his label.
Band members include Greg Bishop: Guitars, Rex Scott: Lead Vocals, Guitar, Rob Kniep: Bass, Mike Buckner: Drums, x-sinner live support: Thom Shultman:Guitar & Jonah Lewis:Bass.
Blues based hard rock is the game and X-Sinner is the name. Based in the Los Angeles Ca. region this band has 6 albums out. Their first two albums "Get It" and "Peace Treaty" are out of print and only available on i-Tunes and places like eBay. Current releases number five and six titled "Fire It Up" and "Loud And Proud2" were shipped July 2006 and Feb 2007 respectively. Release number seven titled "Back In Red" is slated for a late 2007 release.
Truly a dirty demo done dirt cheap. These songs ended up on 'Loud & Proud + 2' some 20 years later.
