The Pretty Maids, headed by vocalist Ronnie Atkins and guitarist Ken Hammer, recorded Sin-Decade from July through September of 1991. The eleven song disc was subsequently released in 1992. The production was handled by Flemming Rasmussen, who had previously worked closely with Metallica.
_Sin-Decade_ features ten Atkins/Hammer numbers, and one additional cut, "Please Don't Leave Me", which was penned by the legendary Philip Paris Lynott, with assistance from guitarist John Sykes. "Please Don't Leave Me", which was released as a single, closes the hard-hitting Sin-Decade with style. The ballad was recorded as a tribute to the former Thin Lizzy leader. Throughout the years Lynott and the wealth of music Lizzy recorded, has been a vital influence on the Pretty Maids. The evidence rings true in the music laid down by the Danish rockers from day one.
_Sin-Decade_ features several hard songs that feature killer guitar work and kick ass vocals. "Running Out" opens the disc and sets the stage for the heavy numbers on offer, which include the title track, "Come On Tough, Come On Nasty", "Raise Your Flag", "Credit Card Lover", "Healing Touch" and the ripping "In The Flesh". Besides the ballad "Please Don't Leave Me", "Know It Ain't Easy" is a mid-tempo melodic cut, that features a slow burning groove.
Hard and heavy, laid down with style... it's a trademark of the Pretty Maids!
