Having honed their craft for over 12 years and rocked hundreds of stages around the world since their inception, Sweden’s SISTER SIN have delivered their most intense and charismatic work yet on their fifth full-length album, Black Lotus. SISTER SIN skillfully inject elements of classic, metal-tinged hard rock in the vein of MOTLEY CRUE, ACCEPT, and JUDAS PRIEST, while remaining contemporary and palatable, akin to bands like THE PRETTY RECKLESS and HALESTORM. Frontwoman Liv Jagrell is as commanding as ever with attitude-heavy, full-throated roars and sing-along choruses, backed by heaps of swaggering riffs and ripping guitar solos over a rabble-rousing, beat stomping rhythm section. Despite a strong homage to their classic heavy metal predecessors, SISTER SIN establishes themselves as a staple in the modern hard rock scene with raw, captivating musicianship on Black Lotus. Forget nostalgia: heavy metal is alive and screaming.
