SISTER "Deadboys Making Noise" [12" LP, Black Vinyl]
2019 - Hard Rock from United States
Swedish rockers Sister blend hedonistic, classic Sunset Strip metal with churlish, horror-infused glam-punk, resulting in a ruckus that falls somewhere between L.A. Guns, White Zombie, and the Misfits. Formed in 2006, the Stockholm-based quartet, which consists of Jamie (vocals), Tim (guitar), Rikki (bass), and Cari (drums), joined the ranks of the burgeoning New Wave of Swedish Sleaze Metal (Hardcore Superstar, Nasty Idol, Crashdiet, Vains of Jenna) with their private pressed 2009 debut EP Deadboys Making Noise. Not long after, the band inked a deal with Metal Blade and issued their debut long-player, 2011's well-received Hated. Now this debut has been released on vinyl for the first time. With seven tracks of trashy, gutter-dirty, horror-fuelled sleaze rock to go on - and a hidden acoustic track - I'd have to say that Sister are easily as good as the other 100,000 similar bands in Sweden but, thanks to their dark splatter stylings and great look, at least offer something a little different.
