Sister Sin: True Sound of the Underground
Sister Sin True Sound of the Underground new music review

Sister Sin: True Sound of the ...

Heavy Metal/Hard Rock
4.75/5.0

If Motley Crue had a modern female doppelganger it would be Sweden's Sister Sin. On their third LP, True Sound of the Underground sounds more like an Eighties Crue than any previous outing. But I don't think Vince and the rest of the bad boys, whether in yesteryear or the present, have the musical fortitude to keep up with Sister Sin's pace. Certainly, vocalist Liv can kick the collective asses of most male, or female, singers in this day. If estrogen can be bitch for a gal, I wouldn't want be around when Liv goes through menopause. This gal will kick you in the nuts, and then flash some thigh just to piss you off.

Yet Liv would be nothing without the vicious and bruising hard rocking trio that backs her up. She may be at the front, but this crew is talented, and red-freaking-hot. I think the rhythm section has only one gear, overdrive. They just punch it and go. Crazy licks fly from Jimmy's lightning, sometimes minimalist, guitar work, adding enough gasoline to an already blistering fire. With the pace and performance, Sister Sin is both flash and substance, a bonfire of sky-searing, heavy metal flames. While nothing ever slows down on True Sound of the Underground, and everything rocks, my quick picks are the following: Sound of the Underground, Nailbiter, 24-7, I Stand Alone, and The Devil I Know.

Raucous, rowdy, and totally killer, Sister Sin's True Sound of the Underground is a tour-de-force of ass-kicking and rocking, heavy metal. Quite recommended.
