Mother of Sin is a melodic rock band from the north of the Netherlands, formed around former Elegy and Prime Time singer/guitarist Eduard Hovinga. Formed in 2003, the band released the debut CD Apathy in 2005. The cd got good reviews, but due to the fact that it was only released in the Benelux, the success wasn’t there and the band fell apart. Eduard and drummer Gerry de Graaf however decided to go on. Together they recorded the new album Absolution playing all instruments and released the album independently in 2010. Bass player Peter Groen joined the band during this time and with a steady 3 piece line up the band started to promote the new album live as much as possible. In August 2014 a demo with 5 new songs was released. The band changed their style a bit, less complicated. In the aftermath of 2018 the third album with the title 3 was recorded and ready for release on Big Bad Wolf Records.
