Drowning Pool is an American rock band formed in Dallas, Texas in 1996 by Guitarist C.J. Pierce and drummer Mike Luce after relocating from New Orleans, Louisiana, to Dallas. There, they found and recruited bassist Stevie Benton. For a few years they stuck to performing as an instrumental trio, but this all changed in 1999 with the arrival of vocalist Dave Williams.

Sinner is the band’s debut and most popular studio album, being certified platinum in the same year that it was released in. This is the only studio album by the band to feature original lead singer Dave Williams – who had a “Sinner” tattoo on his arm, before the album came out. While touring in support of Sinner, Williams died on August 14, 2002 (aged 30) from cardiomyopathy. The album was put at no. 25 on Metal Descent’s list “The 25 Best Alternative Metal Albums”.
