LP released: Jan 27, 2023
BACK IN 2016 VOCALIST LIV JAGRELL, KNOWN WORLDWIDE AS THE FRONTWOMAN FOR SISTER SIN, LET THE MUSIC WORLD KNOW THAT SHE HAD FORMED A NEW BAND. LIV SIN, driven by massive guitar riffs and a heavy modern metal sound released their debut album ôFollow Meö in 2017. Their second album, ôBurning Sermonsö was released in 2019. Both albums spawned multiple popular singles such as Let me Out and Blood Moon Fever. Fast forward to 2023, after a two-year down period and revamped line-up, LiV SiN is now completely recharged and ready to hit the stages again. Not forgetting the record shopsÆ racks, with their new album, ôKaliYugaö. ôKaliYugaö referring to the fourth of the four ôYugasö in Hinduism, the era precisely dedicated to the present age, full of conflict andà sin. The theme of Kali Yuga was also reflected in the albumÆs writing process. ôSince we produced this album ourselves, we definitely tried out a lot of new things, and I confess, I went a bit crazy with the vocals in certain partsö, Liv declares. Musically, ôKali Yugaö is LiV SiN, on steroids! Jagrell explains how the creative process developed into an energetic and varied set of songs: ôWe took influences from everywhere, from newer metal acts such as Architects, Parkway Drive to vocal inspiration from King Diamond. I am ecstatic with the outcomeö. With such an album in hands, LiV SiN could only pick a production team that would do justice to the songs. Simon Johansson (from Wolf and Memory Garden fame) and Mike Wead (King Diamond and Mercyful Fate axeman) were summoned to record the album, while the mix and mastering duties were delivered to console-wizard Tue Madsen (Witchery, The Haunted, At The Gates, etc). A winning team for a strong and cohesive album that will for sure kick off 2023 in a true heavy way.
