Editorial Reviews

The excess of bands like Motley Crue, Ratt and Scorpions only measured up to the amount of power and volume that came from the speakers each time you spun one of their records. Why reminisce about the glory days of Rock n' Roll in the 1980s? If you yearn for that raw, dirty Rock n' Roll, then thank your lucky stars for SISTER SIN. The band came to the States last year and played with every band from ILL NINO and OTEP to classic metal heroes BULLET BOYS, FASTER PUSSYCAT and the mighty MOTORHEAD. True Sound of the Underground picks up right where their debut Switchblade Serenade left off. A punishing rhythm section, a piercing crushing guitar and a metal siren behind the microphone is surely doomed for greatness.

Format:Audio CD
"True sound of the underground" is the 3rd full length studio album by Swedish Sleaze Metal/Hard rock band `Sister Sin' and one of the most characteristic cases of female fronted Sleaze metal.

Despite the bold title of the release, one could claim that, in a sense, the new "Sister Sin" album is based on the sound of the underground hair metal; specifically the band has gone back to the original sleaze metal concept as defined by "Motley Crue" in the early 80s. Indeed every song on "True sound of the underground" references directly the first two iconic sleaze metal records of "Crue". So you can expect loud but sleazy guitar riffs topped by short yet effective leads, dark bass lines and totally `Tommy Lee'-like drumming (with the trademark locomotive tempos and characteristic fills). Evidently their brand of sleaze metal has a very American flavour on this new album, perhaps a result of being signed by US label `Victory Records', still whatever the reason, the approach is spot on and seems to work perfectly for them.

What arguably deviates from this musical approach are Liv's vocals which instead of the high pitched tones and dark/romantic themes, are seriously aggressive (without going `brutal') and mostly mid range. In comparative terms the vocal approach is very very similar to that of "Crashdiet" (and their front man Simon Cruz). In terms of lyrical themes, the concept of the album evolves around youthfulness, defiance, social revolution and, of course, sleaze metal style.

This album was quite as a surprise to me, as I did not expect `Sister Sin' to come up with such aggression in their new material. The preceding album was pretty rocking but not quite as focused or commanding as this new one.

5.0 out of 5 stars There is hope for the future of metal. August 15, 2010
By Dimzab
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This group is a very pleasant surprise in a genre that is becoming very predictable. This is the first CD I've heard from this group and plan on getting their first CD when I can get my hands on one, because I like the sound and feel of their music. True Sound of the Underground is loud, well written and seems to be one of the better voices for the new age of metal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another slice of fast paced fem fronted rawk November 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's a strange scenario when within a short time of each other we had two female fronted hard rawk bands from Scandinavia sally forth with full length nuggets of road worn wisdom. I'm of course referencing the relatively short space of time betwixt the release of Vanity Inks `More Senseless Random Behaviour' and this album from Sister Sin.

And to tell the truth both bands are playing much within the same ballpark. Both have produced solid second albums that stay very much within their remit of playing tight party rock sliding into more formal metallic realms at times. Both have somewhat charismatic female lead singers and both are quite obviously inspired at least in part by all the great party wattage from the harder end of the 80's musical spectrum. If one were to split hairs it has to be said that Sister sin are the more metallic, their sonic attack that touch harsher, the vocals of Liv being more barren sounding, more visceral and less in possession of self awareness of the inherent clichés within the lyrics, if that makes sense.

All up this is a very full sounding album sonically, pretty much everything is louder than anything else. The whole album pretty much careens into one and many of the tunes themselves seem just about ready to collapse in a rather elegantly wasted manner. A little like the audio equivalent of the huge fender benders one sees on TV where 75 vehicles have all piled into each other - and yeah I'm meaning that as a compliment. A few studio trick are used here and there and the whole thing sounds crystal clear. Lyrics are not included in the booklet alas though it has to be said that they are probably not the strong point of this album. Then again as long as you attack the task at hand with the right amount of vigour then much can be forgiven.
