“As of today, November 7th 2015, SISTER SIN is no more.

We know this may come as a surprise to many of you; honestly, it kinda took us by surprise too.
What was supposed to be a short eight weeks break, suddenly & unfortunately, turned in to the demise of the band.

– We have been touring and recording in a relentless schedule since 2008 and I guess we burned the candle in both ends and hit a wall. When we finally had the opportunity to step back and get some perspective, the motivation for some members in the band just wasn’t there any more…

Rawr; Sister Sin’s Liv Jagrell Is In Penthouse Magazine

Winter is sure going to get a lot hotter now that Sister Sin’s awesome lead singer Liv Jagrell will be gracing the pages of this months issue of Penthouse Magazine. Yep, you read that correctly….Liv Jagrell is going to be in Penthouse but please don’t lose your sh*t about it because its a part of their “Sirens” column and is a very tastefully done shoot with an article about the band. Check out more below.

Magazine - Penthouse 1-2015

As you can tell, Penthouse Magazine is very excited about getting Liv Jagrell into the issue. “Liv Jagrell of Sweden’s Sister Sin has powerful pipes, a hot body, and can definitely kick your ass,” Penthouse writes. “With the band’s fifth album, ‘Black Lotus,’ and a fall European tour under her belt, she’s poised to dominate the U.S. heavy-metal scene … Jagrell’s voice transcends most modern metal singers, invoking more the classic, soaring sound of Judas Priest’s Rob Halford or maybe even Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson. When she’s not recording or on the road, her ‘day job’ is just as metal—she’s a personal trainer who can kick your ass and make you do squats till you puke.”

Doc Coyle Leaves God Forbid & Then God Forbid Also Ends :(

Logo - God Forbid
I must admit that this surprised me but yes, Doc Coyle posted it on his Facebook late on Friday afternoon informing his friends and followers that he was leaving God Forbid after thirteen years at the guitar. That was that we felt, and the plan was to put up a posting to wish Doc the best of luck going forward because I’ve often had the pleasure of meeting him at shows and he was a really nice guy.
