Episode #24: Sister Sin


As a lifelong metal fan, I am almost ashamed to admit that I didn't discover Sister Sin until around a year ago. In that time, they have quickly become one of my favorite bands, and their new album BLACK LOTUS--which drops this week--is my most anticipated album of the year.

Sister Sin hails from Gothenburg, Sweden, and while they originally formed in 2002, they might as well have formed in 1984, because they are 100% old school. Seriously, I cannot think of another modern band that so perfectly and consistently captures the feel of '80s metal. And I'm not talking about nostalgia here--I mean this band has '80s metal woven into their DNA. Crunchy riffs, fierce vocals and anti-authoritarian anthems that make you want to throw your fist in the air and bang your head.


If you haven't heard Sister Sin before, I envy you for two reasons. One, because after you check out this episode's videos you have their whole back catalog dive into. And two, because their new album BLACK LOTUS arrives on Tuesday. So enjoy these five kick-ass videos from Sister Sin and then go support one of the best metal bands out there today.

One Out of Ten


Sound of the Underground


Outrage


End of the Line


Fight Song



BONUS #1: Sister Sin waers their influences on their sleeve, and it's easy to see that lead singer Liv Jagrell brings a healthy dose of '80s metal icon Doro Pesch (Warlock) to her onstage persona. Sister Sin recently teamed up with Doro to cover Motorhead's "Rock 'n' Roll," and it's pretty great.


BONUS #2: As I mentioned before, BLACK LOTUS drops this week, and you can get a taste of it here, with a lyric video for the album's first single, "Chaos Royale." It jams.



I'll be back in two weeks at 6:30PM EST on Twitter (twitter.com/seebrianwrite) for another episode of Sunday Night Videos. You can also come back here to the blog for the episode notes, which will go up shortly after 8PM EST. You can tweet me recommendations or get in on the discussion every Sunday night by using the hashtag #SundayNightVideos. Rock on!
