Original Sin (not to be confused with another all-female band with Isabella Fronzoni, ex- Ice Age ) was another of the female bands of the first batch, contemporary with Ice Age.
The band’s history is closely linked to Virgin Steele, as one of their concerts was the place where the vocalist Danielle Draconis met Cynthia Taylor.
And unlike many female band at the time, Original Sin did publish an album “Sin Will Find You Out”, thanks to the band’s connection with “The Lion” (aka David DeFeis from Virgin Steele) and the label in which they militated called Cobra Records. In fact DeFeis participated in some of the songs from the album, rerecording “Conjuration Of The Watcher” and “Succubus” by Virgin Steele on their album “The Book Of Burning” of 2001.
This album, apart from its musical contribution, is also remembered for the half-naked torso that appears on the cover, of the model Jody Roxx.
Its lyrics dealt with sex and demons, while his music had clear influences of Exorcist, DeFeis parallel project, as well as the first Warlock. Alternating speed, with power, thrash and classic heavy metal elements, their sound is quite original. It just fails in some high notes that Danielle unsuccessfully tries to achieve.
Shortly after the album’s release, Original Sin disbanded.
