Fierce Swedish heavy rockers Sister Sin released their latest album and should come kick me in the face for not noticing them earlier... What a blast!
I can't help but picturing myself swinging glasses, chugging beers and roaring along to what can only be described as (almost) perfect drinking music.
The Sinners draw influences from Swedish melodic metal as well as classic heavy metal and still bring on a huge rock n' roll feel all through their material.
Liv has one of the nastiest throats I've heard in a long time, turning the otherwise technique-oriented musical backbone in a straight-up nosepunch.
She screams anthems as if her life depended on it, and in some it might, because you believe every single word she sings. The lyrics contain little more story than your average sleaze band, but you can't deny that Sister Sin is well past its adolescence either.
A little icing on the rock cake, are the backing vocals. I don't know how they did it, but they added yet another genre to their repertoire. New York hardcore/old school punk choruses anyone? Guess what, it works!
Musically, there's really nothing to complain about either. These boys have been practising their asses off, and it shows.
Not a note missing, not a drum fill too much, great solos that never steal the thunder from the rest of the band or song, ... Just a rock n' roll freight train, hitting you over and over again.
This is party music, and if they were any more dirty, they'd be Nashville Pussy.
