This culminated in the cult classic, 'Invaders' album, released in 1986, which received rave reviews from Aardshock's Readers Poll, amongst many others. Invaders was essential listening for skate boarders across the USA. Often quoted 'skate or die'.

18 September 2011 - The Rapture - First Review
BITCHES SIN - The Rapture
Bitches Sin Records / Metal Nation
The NWoBHM Legends reformed in the mid 00s and released Uduvudu in 2008. This new album follows on nicely and takes the band to the verge of extreme metal. With support from the likes of Total Rock and Bruce Dickinson, the band have a solid fanbase and have a decent album here too.

Opener “Don’t Let Go” is blistering to say the least, plenty of shred. Then there is a surprise cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Sounds Of Silence” – which works remarkably well.
After that there’s some solid power metal that fluctuates between trad metal and extreme, and the keyboard effects work well in some of the tracks too.
Bolstered with the aid of guitarist / produced Chris Tsangarides there is blistering yet polished guitar oriented metal here. Pretty damn good.
4/5 - Joe Geesin

September 2011 - The Cradle Will Rock!
Metal afficiando and master behind the The Metal Gods Rock Show on the radio every Monday evening 'themetalgodsrockshow' Dave 'Chippy' Chipchase has invited Bitches Sin to play the rock and metal festival 'The Cradle Will Rock' on Saturday 3rd September at Shildon Civic Hall. This will be the first chance to see and hear tracks from the new album The Rapture played live. Chippy's radio show is excellent with loads on info on bands and some fantastic music, classic and new. At the festival Bitches Sin will be selling The Rapture CD's and a limited edition 'Rapture' t-shirts in a range of sizes. This is gonna be a great rock and metal event so get there......

The Rapture CD and limited edition t-shirts are now available to buy from our website and all usual outlets.

August 2011 - The Rapture
Finally...art work complete, album has been mastered and the t-shirts design approved and all orders have been placed to bring The Rapture to our fans old and new around the world. It always seems to take Bitches Sin a couple of years to record and release a new album, but it has been an album worth waiting for. One early comment has arrived check out the rest of the info at www.johntuckeronline.com

THE RAPTURE APPROACHES: ‘This is not an album, it’s a statement of intent’ – that was my first thought on hearing Bitches Sin’s new offering ‘The Rapture’. From the doom-laden cover (‘an unkindness of ravens gathers… thousands upon thousands heralding The Rapture… the sifting of souls… and The Second Coming… those who believe shall be saved…’) to the intensity and strength of the album’s material – delivered with the honesty and integrity of a band with complete faith and belief in what they do – ‘The Rapture’ sets a new template for metal in the twenty-first century.....John
Tucker , Music Author

July 2011 - Mastered at Metropolis
Well The Rapture approaches still closer... An achievement of massive proportions by Andy Baldwin, who took a lot of time and trouble to get to the sound we expected to hear for The Rapture. And what a sound it is, truly the coming of Armageddon. Special thanks must also be given to Christopher and Ruth whose experience, expertise and integrity allowed them to 'challenge' what was being delivered at important moments during the session.

January to June 2011 - Sleeve notes, finance and design work
Word has spread of the approach of The Rapture with emails arriving from around the world with early enquiries. During this time we have been organising finances ahead of the formal release of the new album. More difficult has been deciding how the sleeve notes would be presented. There is probably only John Tucker, the well known music author, who would know enough background to deliver on our expectations. John agreed to write the sleeve notes and has done a brilliant job capturing the whole story of The Rapture and the band to date. As we did not progress any further with a couple of major labels we had to source the finance ourselves and as a consequence has delayed the release of The Rapture. But, all good things come to he who waits and next month, July, sees the mastering taking place at Metropolis Studios, London. The design work is progressing well so nearly there...

Thanks again to Ian Williamson and the guys at Classic Rock and Metal Hammer for the invites to Golden Gods. Chris Tsangarides and Mr Toomey went along to the show.

December 2010 -
The Rapture update
The Rapture is almost complete. We have mixed the album but need to decide on a running order although the opening track has kinda picked itself called 'Don't Let Go!' Its not an easy task this time, even the great Chris Tsangarides is undecided but we know that at some point it will be agreed. 'Listening Only' promo CD's have been requested by certain interested parties and will be delivered during early January 2011. This will be the first time in many years Bitches Sin will be talking to anyone outside the band about a formal release because as you know we tend to do things ourselves. However, 'trusted souls' have made the request so on this occasion we will be responding.
Finally for 2010 to all our fans and friends have a great
Christmas and a safe, happy and prosperous 2011...The Rapture is coming

November 2010 - "I want you to want me!"
Mr Toomey & Mr SchenkerAnother great night with our friends at Classic Rock but this time with a difference....the awards were held at The Roundhouse, Camden, London.

Mr Toomey and Mr Schenker were caught in conversation and Michael deservedly won the Marshall '11' award.

December 2007
- We started 2007 with a project to record four ‘all new tracks’ for Bitches Sin. This was to be an EP release entitled ‘Mr Toomey’.

So when we returned home in April 2007 we wrote and rehearsed six more songs that culminated in the new Bitches Sin album ‘UDUVUDU’, completing the recording in September 2007.
We finish 2007 with only the final mix left to do which is due to commence 7th January 2008. We want to wish everyone all the best for Christmas and have a very heavy New Year.

16th March 2004 - Bitches Sin meet Gorgon - Live in Japan
Bitches Sin Rock Japan!!! Tuesday 16th March 2004 saw Bitches Sin lead guitarist Ian Toomey arrive in Tokyo. Met by Shige, Gorgon's vocalist. It was the start of an amazing metal experience with our friends and fans in Tokyo. Highlight of the trip was the performance at Live Station in Meguro, Tokyo. Ian played the gig live with Gorgon on Saturday 20th March 2004 performing the classic Bitches Sin metal masterpiece 'Strangers on the Shore'.After the gig Ian was interviewed by metal fanzine Daemonic Majesty. Many Bitches Sin fans arrived for a chance to meet with Ian and brought their albums for him to sign. There then followed an impromptu photo session, with all assembled, which caused quite a stir as they spilled out onto the streets in downtown Meguro!A big metal thank you to all who supported the visit to Japan and who contributed to making the gig such a success. Bitches Sin would particularly like to thank, Shige, Ken, Jero, Jacky of Gorgon, and Tatsumi, 'Mats' and all the 'Headlights'. Looking forward to seeing you all again later this year.
