Smashing through trends and brandishing a savage reminder of what heavy metal is all about, Sweden’s sensational SISTER SIN has most definitely arrived on the scene.

An open audition for a band led by former bassist Chris Martensson landed drummer Dave Sundberg not only a new friendship, but blueprints for Sweden’s dirty metal cartel SISTER SIN. Chris and Dave 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 ears all around the world.

The search for the perfect front man began; however, much disappointment delivered a diamond in the rough when the two came across Liv Jagrell in a local newspaper ad. 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 Hiltula, who was known as the “best extreme metal guitar player around.” With Jimmy’s acceptance, everything was finally in place. The group began to perfect the SISTER SIN sound by fusing raw punk-rock energy with the power of classic metal. Six years later found the band on a search for a new bassist, as Chris left, pursing other life obligations. Benton Wiberg took his place and the lineup is now stronger than ever. Today, the furious foursome is on a mission to deliver rock through their captivating vocals, electrifying guitar riffs, and an overall hard-hitting metallic force.

SISTER SIN has been extremely successful in Europe, and with the help of Victory Records, they were able to bring their signature sound to the US. “Our drummer was looking at MTV one day,” explains Liv, “And there was a video with a hardcore band. He thought, ‘If this band could make such a high place on the US video list, why couldn’t we?’ He checked out the record label, and it was Victory. So he sent an e-mail, and Victory answered within an hour, saying they were interested. It was quite a surprise.” SISTER SIN signed with Victory in the summer of 2008, and released their debut, Switchblade Serenades, shortly after.

Over the past year, SISTER SIN has completed two full US tours and played over 100 shows, including dates with MOTORHEAD, ILL NINO, AND FASTER PUSSYCAT. They were also graced with the honor of playing at the Swedish Rock Festival, which Liv described as a “dream come true.”

Following extensive touring in support of Switchblade Serenades, SISTER SIN moved into a small apartment in Stockholm for almost three months to write and record their upcoming release, True Sound of the Underground in Stockholm with Henrik Edenhed. “Imagine Nikki Sixx being dirt broke moving into Lemmy´s one room apartment making an album together. Inject that combination with fresh blood and angry youth and you’ll probably get an idea of what the new SISTER SIN album sounds like.” Said Liv.

This album picks up right where their debut Switchblade Serenade left off. Dave explains, “Working on this album made us stronger and more determined than ever. When we go out on the road this year there certainly won’t be any internal bullshit; no weakest link dragging the band down.” This band is not into retro, retread hype; this is a serious testament to the raucous spirit of true 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. “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!” says Liv.

How can you pass up on an offer like that?

SUMMER FABRIC "INGREDIENTS"

COTTON + STRETCH = CUTE BUTT: Cotton jeans are the lightest for summer because they are airy and breathable, however, jeans with a small content of stretch are the most flattering. They will move with your body and it’s movements.BEST DENIM BLENDS: Chrissy suggests denim with a high cotton content, and small synthetic content.
