SISTER SIN – TRUE SOUND OF THE UNDERGROUND – VICTORY RECORDS  
I can still remember the only time I saw Sister Sin live supporting W.A.S.P. many years ago. Back then, I thought the band was completely unoriginal and would never amount to much in the scene. The singer’s greeting “We are fuckin’ Sister Sin from fuckin’ Sweden” played its part in creating that impression. I was wrong. Slowly but surely, they gathered a following, toured regularly, and issued a total of five albums. True Sound Of The Underground was the third one, and it’s mostly fun to listen to. Sister Sin’s sound is best described as a mix between early Warlock, Skid Row, W.A.S.P., and Accept, with a lot of dirt mixed in. Female vocalist Liv Jagrell sounds much like Blackie Lawless too. The opener and title song Sound Of The Underground is one of the highlights, together with the U.D.O. cover 24/7 (without the massive amount of reverb that the original had), the fast Heading For Hell, and Nailbiter (which has a big touch of W.A.S.P.). It’s simple, effective music that is great to listen to while you are driving, but there is also not much variation in the writing, and Liv’s rough vocals can be a bit monotonous at times. The band split up after their fifth album, probably because they said all they had to say musically. Fans of Warlock or W.A.S.P. who have never heard of Sister Sin should check them out, though. – Andreas Herzog
