Liv Sin have released ‘Chapter of the Witch‘, the new single from their upcoming ‘Burning Sermons‘ album.

Following on from the acclaimed ‘Follow Me’ album, Swedish quintet Liv Sin, led by the unmistakeable vocals of Liv Jagrell (Sister Sin), the band return with the powerful and hard-hitting album ‘Burning Sermons’.

Channelling their love of classic heavy metal with a bruising modern edge, ‘Burning Sermons’ is a riff-heavy collection; showcasing the band’s innate ability to match melody with aggressive metal with ease. Liv is in particularly fine form throughout, with a voice equally capable of capturing your heart as it is knocking buildings to the ground!

Produced by Emil Nödtveidt (Deathstars) in Black Syndicate studio, Liv comments on their decision to work with Emil; ‘We wanted to explore a more modern sound with some synthesizers on this album. I think that this album might surprise a lot of our fans. I have known Emil for many years, so it was really fun to reconnect. The first moment he sent us his ideas of our demos I was delirious!’

Burning Sermons‘ will be released September 6th, 2019. ‘Chapter of the Witch‘ is the third single and will be released August 9th.

The band comments about the single;
“‘Chapter of the Witch‘ symbolize the hopefully soon to be entering into a new era which will be powered by female forces, and give more balance to the world”  – Liv Sin

Sweden’s Liv Sin was founded in 2016 and is led by the charismatic singer Liv Jagrell. After thirteen years leading her former band Sister Sin through countless shows across the world, including dates with Slayer, King Diamond, Motörhead, Doro, W.A.S.P. and U.D.O., the band decided to call it quits in 2015. Not one to sit around, Liv soon got the desire to get back behind the microphone and set about finding a new band of brothers. Their acclaimed debut, ‘Follow Me’, was released in 2017 (Despotz Records) and was co-produced by legendary German metal musicians Stefan Kaufmann (ex. U.D.O. & ex. Accept) and Fitty Wienhold (ex. U.D.O.). Showing a leaner, heavier sound, propelled by in-your-face guitar riffs combined with classic heavy metal power. Reviewers likened their sound as a mix of Judas Priest, Arch Enemy and modern American metal such as Five Finger Death Punch. “Follow Me” received a strong reception and the band hit the road across Europe as both headliner and support to industrial metal machine American Head Charge.

Changing tack slightly, the band released a critically acclaimed acoustic EP ‘Inverted‘ in 2018. Produced by Martin Sandvik (Hardcore Superstar), one of the highlights of the EP being the band’s cover of the Danzig classic ‘Devil’s Plaything‘.

Liv Sin venture into a new chapter with ‘Burning Sermons’. An album that might surprise their fans initially as the quintet dive deeper into darker riffs with the addition of electronics, but they will definitely love the unforgettable hooks and the more pronounced melodic edge of Liv Sin, 2019!

Following on from the acclaimed ‘Follow Me’ album, Swedish quintet Liv Sin, led by the unmistakeable vocals of Liv Jagrell (Sister Sin), the band return with the powerful and hard-hitting new single ‘Slave to the Machine, taken from their upcoming new album, ‘Burning Sermons’. A hard-hitting but melodic statement of intent, ‘Slave to the Machine’ ably demonstrates Liv Sin’s bite hasn’t diminished!

Channelling their love of classic heavy metal with a bruising modern edge, ‘Burning Sermons’ is a riff-heavy collection; showcasing the band’s innate ability to match melody with aggressive metal with ease. Jagrell is in particularly fine form throughout, with a voice equally capable of capturing your heart as it is knocking buildings to the ground!

Changing tack slightly, the band released a critically-praised acoustic EP ‘Inverted‘ in 2018.

Since the release of Liv Sin‘s debut album Liv’s fan base has been faithful and grown even bigger with the new band who are now planning to release a new EP on May 25th through Despotz Records.

Liv Sin has been on a European tour in the UK, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Switzerland and a major tour in Spain. Liv’s fan base has been faithful and grown even bigger with the new band.

With ‘Inverted‘ we wanted to take the opportunity to do something completely different and explore another side of the band. The idea at first was to do a stripped down acoustic EP, but the creative process took us somewhere else.” says front woman and lead singer Liv Jagrell.

The recording of the new EP, ‘Inverted‘ was the first time that Liv’s new band got to work together in a traditional sense, since the first album was mainly written by a few members before the line-up was complete. Working with Martin Sandvik from Hardcore Superstar as a producer really helped the band to find a crisp sound and groovy feeling to what was supposed to be an acoustic EP, but the creative process led to something new.

”I have to say that this was quite the challenge but when we found every songs own identity, they took on a new life and went in different directions. This is a completely new territory for us and we are very proud of this EP”

Last year Liv Sin released the album ‘Follow Me‘ that was co-produced by longtime ACCEPT and U.D.O. member Stefan Kaufmann and U.D.O. bassist Fitty Wienhold. The album shows the power and attitude that Liv is known for and also has featuring artists such as Schmier from Destruction and Jyrki 69 from The 69 Eyes.

About Liv Sin: 
From the gutters of southern Sweden, Liv Jagrell emerged as the major force and vocalist of the hard rock band Sister Sin. Throughout their 13-year career, Sister Sin sold thousands of records and toured the world with high-profile tours supporting the likes of Slayer and King Diamond on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. Sister Sin toured relentlessly for over a decade across Europe and North America garnering an intensely loyal following of rockers that craved the band’s aggressive and melodic brand of hard rock.

When Sister Sin called it quits at the end of 2015, Liv knew that she had much more to offer the world and her fans. From this, Liv Sin was born in the spring of 2017.

Swedish metal priestess Liv Sin has released the video for her newest single, ‘King of the Damned,’ out now through Despotz Records.

The track is both heartfelt and in your face at the same time as it concerns one of Liv’s most passionate loves, animals.  And specifically wildlife.
For me, this song is a call to action to everyone that we as humans will soon extinguish all of the world’s wildlife,” Liv says. “And we need to take action immediately otherwise there will be nothing left. I got the inspiration to the lyrics from Nick Brandts exhibition ‘Inherit the Dust’ (a photo exhibition where Brandt revisited places where he used to take pictures of the wildlife, and how its landscapes are now of garbage and people living in the garbage) and the shooting of Cecil the Lion. For me, both of those events are extremely depressing and not very flattering for mankind. Unfortunately that’s the way we are heading if we do nothing. Remember “Lion King”? Well, soon there is not going to be any “King of the Jungle” left, they will be “King of the Damned” instead”.

She continues, “I wish that everyone would take a minute to just think about it, about how we are treating our world. We chose to cooperate with a Swedish animal rights organization called Djurens rätt on this song. All of the profits of this song from our Bandcamp site will go to them. You can also donate through PayPal at info@despotz.se.

King of the Damned‘ is taken from Liv Sin‘s debut, ‘Follow Me‘ and is in stores now and can be purchased here:

let-me-out

Former Sister Sin vocalist Liv “Sin” Jagrell will release her debut solo single Let Me Out,’ on, of all days, Friday the 13th. 13 could stand for the number of years Liv spent kicking ass in her previous band Sister Sin, 13 can also, of course, stand for evil.

The track was produced by longtime U.D.O. bassist Fitty Wienhold. With Liv’s new album due in early 2017 via the Swedish label Despotz Records, the as-yet-untitled effort is being co-produced by longtime Accept and U.D.O. member Stefan Kaufmann.

Liv says of the collaboration: “I’m truly excited to work with Stefan! He is an incredible musician and a longtime metal hero. I think he can bring that extra bit to my music with his lifelong experience in both Accept and U.D.O.” Kaufmann adds: “When Liv called me and asked to produce her new project together with Fitty, of course I said yes! Liv has talent, and I am sure it will be a blast.

From the gutters of south Sweden, Jagrell emerged as a major force as the vocalist for hard rockers Sister Sin. Throughout their 13-year career, Sister Sin sold thousands of albums and toured the world with high-profile tours supporting the likes of Slayer and King Diamond on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, as well as being a part of the Revolver magazine “Hottest Chicks In Metal” tour. Sister Sin toured relentlessly for over a decade across Europe and North America garnering an intensely loyal following of rockers that craved the band’s aggressive and melodic brand of hard rock.

When Sister Sin called it quits at the end of 2015, Liv knew that she had much more to give to her fans. From this, Liv Sin was born. Liv’s new music shows the power, sexiness, and attitude that she is known for. Liv says: “For me, it has never been an option to stop singing. I live for the stage and for my fans. I still miss Sister Sin, but I am very excited to work on my own project, and I can promise it will not be some soft pop rock. This is going to be metal deluxe, because that’s who I am!

Liv Sin offers a modernized hard rock sound to take Liv into her next phase, a sound that is destined to please both new fans and her longtime fans of Sister Sin.
Liv recently told East Texas Music Scene about the end of Sister Sin: “There are no hard feelings, but the parting wasn’t exactly mutual. Neither me nor Dave [Sundberg, drums] wanted to end the band. We totally understand that not everyone felt that way and you can’t force people to play with you. So it was probably for the best before something got infected ’cause of people touring even if they were too burnt out from it.
