We live in such a fast paced time that bands often go unnoticed. All too often it’s not until a bands sophomore album that they truly make some noise. But then there are those cases where it takes years for a band to get noticed, especially here in the U.S., and when you do hear that band you feel ashamed not just for yourself but for your follow music lovers. Sister Sin is such a band.
When this years Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival was first announced I looked up the bands I didn’t know to check them out. Upon just a few seconds of listening to Sister Sin I immediately found their website, Facebook page, and bought 3 of their 5 (yes they have 5 albums). And why you ask? Because they have a pure rock sound. A sound that many are screaming for and complaining “it’s not out there anymore” when in fact it is if you pick you head up and look for it.
And, if the name didn’t hint at it enough for you, they’re a female fronted band. But don’t let that fool you into thinking they’re another “pretty girl” sellout bands. Liv is without a doubt one of the top front woman in metal today with the chops to back it up and she works WITH the band not as a added bonus. Sister Sin is a complete unit as a band.
Don’t believe me? Check them out live. After seeing them perform at Mayhem Festival (with way too short a set time) just solidified me as a Sister Sin fan for live. Watching them play to a crowd, who may or may not have known them before, and build off the energy of that crowd because of the energy they gave to the crowd.
They managed to give a nice diverse taste of their catalog in only a few songs. From “Chaos Royale”, a song that instantly has you head banging and should be getting mainstream radio play, to “Fight Song”, a loud but still melody infused track that reminds you that rock and metal is alive and kicking. They brought the thunder to the Victory Records stage.
I strongly recommend you get their latest album Black Lotus because it’s a must for anyone that is a rock and metal fan. I can definitely say that it’s only a matter of time before Sister Sin jumps from side stage band to main stage co-headliner and when it happens I’ll be first in line to buy tickets.
