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.

By Nikiforos V. Skoumas on August 21, 2010
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.

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.

Like the title says, Killer Metal! This will cut you up, slash you to pieces and rip you to shreds the first time you listen to it! And expect no less abuse each and every time you hear it. I love it! Take it underground with True Sound of the Underground! Just good, solid hard rock! Buy it and rock your brains out!

My favorite cuts by far, as I find myself listening to them the most, are

Sound Of The Underground - puts you in the mood!
Better Than Them - puts it in perspective!
Built To Last - tells their story, a shot of nitro that kicks in the gas!

Then UDO's cover

24/7 - absolutely choice, instant classic!
Outrage - put the hammer down!
Beat Em Down - another great rocker!

Even the songs I've not listed are incredible, every one of them!

This CD rocks start to finish, so be prepared for it. I first played it while driving home from work one night back in November, 2010. It sounded good right away so I just cranked it full up and left it blasting 'til the end! Amazing! Blew me away! They were my new favorite band overnight!!! One of my favorite rocking CD's to this day!

Get your copy and get to know Sister Sin!

I have been hooked on Sister Sin since I took a chance on their first album, "Switchblade Serenade"! LIv has one of the most distinctive voices in hard rock & that is counting men & women! This band is solid, the songs are solid & the urge to sing along with the choruses is overpowering! The tracks, "24/7", "Better Than Them", "Beat Them Down", & "I Stand Alone" are first rate hard rockers that will have you fist pumping like you were 18 years old again! This band may not get a whole lot of airplay, but that's all the radio station formatting not their ability to deliver hard rock songs that kick ass!! I really love this band & would tell anyone to play this album to open your eyes to the power of Sister Sin!!

When I purchase new music, I listen to it continuously for a few days and add my favorite tracks to my playlist. I then reorder the playlist so that the music "flows" right and listen to that for weeks and remove the tracks that I start skipping over to get to the "good stuff". This effort yields playlists that I can listen to for years. My 13-track Sister Sin playlist contains three tracks from this album; Heading for Hell, Sound of the Underground, and 24-7.

Hard, Heavy and a female (that helps a lot!) lead singer who actually sings! I never thought I would come across a band that actually could combine those three elements ever again. You just want to listen to the album again and again with amazing tracks like "Sound of the Underground", "Outrage", "24/7", "Heading for Hell" and "The Devil I know". Stunning job. And the band's two other records are just as good. Keep up the great work!.
