Sinner is the debut studio album by the American nu metal band Drowning Pool. The album is considered the band's most successful, reaching platinum only six weeks after its release. This was due at least in part to "Bodies" which remains the band's most well-known song. This is the only studio album by the band to feature original lead singer Dave Williams. While touring in support of Sinner, he died on August 14, 2002 from cardiomyopathy. The album debuted at #14 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album was initially released with a Parental Advisory sticker, but a clean version of the album without the sticker was later released.
The album will be re-released on November 11, 2014 to commemorate 13th anniversary, titled "Sinner: Unlucky 13th Anniversary Deluxe Edition". This re-mastered release includes all Dave Williams songs, including all demos and featuring one never before released demo called "Heroes Sleeping". It also includes "Bodies" lyric video and some never before released footage featuring their late frontman Dave Williams, in which the band speaks about meaning of the songs on Sinner album, and more.
