Since 2002, SISTER SIN has worked hard to earn their position at the top of the metal scene and with a third album release on the way, they are clearly here to stay. The blueprints for Sweden’s dirty metal cartel SISTER SIN were traced nearly ten years ago. Former bassist, Chris Martensson and current drummer Dave Sunderberg became fast friends, recognizing their mutual interest in 80’s metal and their yearning to play the music unconventional to their home country. The pair quickly formed a band of their own in hopes to assault all ears around the world.
The search for the perfect front man began and they soon discovered vocalist Liv Jagrell. Although a female part wasn’t their original idea, they decided to give her a shot and Dave explains, “It turned out she could sing better and had more balls than any of the other guys who tried out for the gig.” With Liv on board, there was only one link missing: a guitarist.
Without hesitation, Dave phoned an old high school friend, Jimmy Hitula, who was known as the “best extreme metal guitar player around.” With Jimmy’s acceptance, everything was finally in place. The group finally began to craft their sound by fusing raw punk-rock energy with the power of classic metal. With their unique sound and line-up solidified, SISTER SIN gained widespread success in Europe and soon reached out to US based label Victory Records. The foursome signed to the label in 2008 and has since been able to successfully deliver their powerful sound to the US.
Four years and two Victory releases later, SISTER SIN has announced their highly anticipated third full -length album, Now and Forever, set to be released on October 22, 2012. Along with the most recent addition of bassist Strandh, the furious bunch is on a mission to continue to deliver rock through their capitvating vocals, electrifying guitar riffs and an overall hard-hitting metallic forcer.
SISTER SIN has completed several full tours throughout the United States and European regions. Amongst the many stages played, SISTER SIN has been able to share the spotlight with monumental acts such as MOTORHEAD, ALICE COOPER, DOOR, ILL INO, OTEP and more. With a fully packed schedule to accompany the release of Now and Forever, SISTER SIN plans to continue to tour throughout Sweden this summer, followed by a yet another full US tour this winter.
This band is not into retro, retread hype; this is a serious testament to the raucous spirit of true 80’s heavy metal and Rock ‘n’ Roll. If you’re into rebellious, unapologetic, intense music then you’re sure to become a fan of SISTER SIN and check out their new third full-length album, Now and Forever. This may quite possibly be the REAL metal album of 2012.
“We want to make you all bang your head, spit your beer and leave the gig with a big smile and a good wry neck!” – Liv.
