We loved everything about the band Sister Sin in terms of music and their live concert presentation. It was rocking and it was super energetic on the stage and when they broke up last year a sigh of sadness hit us here at the Metal Command HQ. This of course was not even half as big as the despair that hit the bands longtime fans around the world. I vowed to keep up with their individual adventures going forward and when I saw the official press release by the bands former singer Liv Jagrell I knew that I had to share it with you all. Check out the statement below and then I’ll return.
The Press Release:
May 3, 2016 – From the gutters of south Sweden, Liv “Sin” Jagrell emerged as a major force as the vocalist for hard rockers Sister Sin. Throughout their 13 year career, Sister Sin sold thousands of albums and toured the world with high profile tours supporting the likes of Slayer and King Diamond on the Rockstar Mayhem festival tour, as well as being a part of the Revolver Magazine ”Hottest Chicks in Metal” tour. Sister Sin toured relentlessly for over a decade across Europe and North America garnering an intensely loyal following of rockers that craved the band’s aggressive and melodic brand of hard rock.
When Sister Sin called it quits at the end of 2015, Liv knew that she had much more to give to her fans. From this, LIV SIN was born. Liv is currently working on a new music that shows the power, sexiness, and attitude that she is known for. Liv says ”for me it has never been an option to stop singing. I live for the stage and for my fans. I still miss Sister Sin, but I am very excited to work on my own project, and I can promise it will not be some soft pop rock. This is going to be metal deluxe, because that’s who I am!” LIV SIN offers a modernized hard rock sound to take Liv into her next phase, a sound that is destined to please both new fans and her longtime fans of Sister Sin.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve kept Liv on my journalistic radar since the break because it was one of those things that stuck with me. The band was so solid and being met with approval over here but in my personal opinion there wasn’t enough support coming despite it being deserved. More fans of this kind of stuff need to pay attention to what is going on out there because more bands are going to go away otherwise. With that stated I am really happy to hear about the new solo project and I hope that it follows along more with the premise of Sister Sin since Liv worked that role super well. I don’t want to see her straying too far away from the sound that legacy fans locked into because that would be counterproductive and find her building a fan base all over again from scratch so let’s cross our fingers about just what “Modernized Rock” means in this statement. Liv has a powerful voice and even better stage presence. Hoping a label where she can grow picks her up soon. Good luck Liv I look forward to hearing your new sound soon. What do you readers think about this news? Let me know in the comments section.
I’ve embedded codes for the Sister Sin back catalog that came care of Victory Records. These are all really rocking albums and will give you some insight into a band that was gone too soon. If your background is new on Liv and the rest of the guys, pluck down a few of those hard earned dollars on some music that I highly recommend.
