Brand New Sin

With Mushroomhead. Saturday, October 28, at the Agora.


Since firing an opening shot with its self-titled debut in 2002, Brand New Sin has been building a solid reputation as a blend of everything you love about Corrosion of Conformity, Black Label Society, and Motörhead. Barely a year since the well-received Recipe for Disaster, Brand New Sin has returned with its third record, Tequila, and the band gets right down to business. Frontman Joe Altier spews venom on boot-stomping tracks like "Did Me Wrong" and "Numero Dos," and turns in an unexpected cover of the classic Animals track "House of the Rising Sun" that builds to bullet-train speed. Tequila also features the first recording appearance of Type O Negative's Peter Steele, who adds his signature creepy vocals to the doom-metal track "Reaper Man," one of the album's best, just in time for Halloween.
