Saints And Sinners is the debut record from Twelve Noon, an American Alternative Metal band from Pittsburgh. Formed in 2015 by Rob Heil (Guitar) and Michael Loew (Vocals), the band originally performed cover songs in bars. With Tim Clark (bass), John Devlin (guitar), Justin Runkel (drums) rounding out the line up, they began writing and incorporating original material into their live set. In May of 2016, the band recorded their first album, with producer Bobby Balow, entitled Saints And Sinners.. The album was released independently, and the band began gigging throughout western Pennsylvania, quickly making a name for themselves. In January 2017, the band caught the attention of A&R executive Chris Poland who quickly signed the band to Eclipse Records. Saints And Sinners was released by Eclipse Records June 9, 2017.
Overall, Saints And Sinners is sonically good with crisp production and good tones. Michael Leow has excellent range, whether singing or screaming/growling. The majority of the music is well-performed, with the occasional timing hiccup. The lead guitar leaves something to be desired. It’s lackluster in comparison with the rest of the record musically. The heaviness of the music and the quality of the vocals in this genre would dictate either do it well or leave it out. In this case, leaving it out would’ve been a better choice.
That said, fans of Metal, Alternative Metal and Hard Rock will find some very enjoyable music here.
