Zeromancer - Sinners International
Electrorock There was allot of fuzz about Zeromancer back in 2000 and 2001 when they released their albums 'Clone Your Lover' and 'Eurotrash'. Since Norway is our neighbor it was hard not to hear about them and see them perform live at festivals. After the release of 'ZZYZX' in 2003 they suddenly disappeared and during the time span since then it's been allot of rumors about a new release from the band. Now it's 2009 and finally the album 'Sinners International' is here and even though it's not as epic as 'Eurotrash', it's still a great album.

If you are afraid that the album is as poppy as 'ZZYZX', fear not, there's a more rocky sound to it like in 'Eurotrash', but still 'Sinners International' feels like a mix between the two albums. You have some of the more poppy choruses and some of the more heavy riffs and it creates a perfect blend. The first time I listened to the album I thought it was a bit slow and dull, but for every time it's getting better and better and now I really enjoy all the tracks.

My favourites on this album are "Doppelgänger I Love You", "My Little Tragedy", "Fictional" and last but not least the amazing "Imaginary Friends" that are a truly awesome piece of work.

The album has really had a tough time in the reviews and there seems to be very mixed feelings about the album, some seems to embrace it while others still are nagging about 'Clone Your Lover'. Listen to the album with an opened mind and maybe you'l see it in a different way when your mind is not set on things that were made soon a decade ago.
