    ORIGINAL SIN were a NWOBHM quintet formed in Liverpool in 1979, by the Brunskill brothers, Les and Alan, on Guitar and Drums respectively.
    It's rumoured that the band recorded 1 or 2 demos in the early 1980's, but as far as i'm aware, the existence of the tapes have not yet been verified by any trustworthy source.
    Gradually, the band line-up changed, solidifying round the Brunskills, with Vocalist Steve Daley, Guitarist Kevin McGinn and Bassist Paul Ollingsworth completing the outfit.
    Original Sin's only verified official release would turn out to be the 1984 "The Shadow" 12" single, released on the band's own Sin Records label.
    The single's rather nifty picture sleeve sported a striking illustration of the cult early radio and comic book character The Shadow.
    Although the exact size of the single's pressing is unknown, it seems unlikely that any more than a few hundred were ever made, as the record hardly ever turns up for sale.
    On the rare occassions when it does, as you'd expect, it changes hands for silly money.
    However, this is one of those rare instances where the rarity and quality of a scarce release intersect rather nicely.
    Both sides of the single are excellent examples of NWoBHM power, with memorable and gritty song structures combined with clever guitar interplay.
    A further demo, the excellent three song "Burning" tape, was issued in 1985, but this seems to have been the band's last hurrah.
    This band was no relation to the Huntingdon or London based acts or the New York or Los Angeles bands of the same name, or the Chinese Black Metal band either.
