In case you didn’t know, Dave Evans is the first lead singer from AC/DC. He has been in a few bands over the years since his initial days with AC/DC, and is now starting to make a name for himself in the United States.
Sinner is the debut CD released by Dave Evans in the United States. If you love good hard rock music, you are going to love this disc.
Sinner is full of kick ass, hard driving, rock and roll! Dave Evans voice is well tailored for good heavy rock, and this disc rocks hard. Mark Tinson’s song writing skills shine, as there isn’t a bad song on the disc.
My favorite cuts are Back on the Firing Line, Take Me Down Again, Only the Good Die Young, Carnal Knowledge, Turn it Up and Out in the Cold.
Fans of AC/DC and good hard rock music are going to love this disc. You can hear more of Dave’s songs at his myspace page here. You can pick up Sinner at CDBaby.com and ITunes. For those of you who haven’t caught the Dave Evans podcast yet, be sure to check it out here.

This disc is one of the better glam metal discs from the early 90’s. As a result it is averaging around 25 – 30 on EBay today, but is certainly worth seeking out.
Heavens Edge features Mark Evans on vocals and guitar, Reggie Wu on guitar, keyboards and background vocals, Steven Parry on guitar and background vocals, G.G. Guidotti on bass and background vocals, and David Rath on drums and percussion.
Neil Kernon (Autograph, Dokken, Queensryche) produced this CD, and the sound of this disc is very Dokken like.
Highlights on this disc, are Skin to Skin, Play Dirty, Bad Reputation, Find Another Way and Hold on To Tonight.
I still play this disc from time to time, and wonder why these guys never hit it as big as some of other bands that were on the scene at the same time. It is a great glam metal disc and worth seeking out if you don’t own a copy! You can hear more of the band’s song at their myspace page here.
