Just a few days before the new LIV SIN album drops, here’s a new digital single from the Swedish band led by the Sister Sin singer: “I Am The Storm”.
“This song is probably the most dynamic song we have ever written, which also made it one of the hardest ones to sing since I’m not very used to singing soft“, Liv Jagrell says about the track.
“The theme behind the lyrics is again about inner work. It’s about that feeling when someone or something pushes you out of balance, and how you can convince yourself that you have control over your own mind and your own state, like a kind of mantra. We need to acknowledge both our positive and negative emotions and see that both of them are needed and make us who we are. This song is one of my personal favorites from the new album“, the singer concludes.
“I Am The Storm” is out today in digital single and official video formats. Check out the video in the link below
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 “Follow Me” in 2017. Their second album, “Burning Sermons” 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 shops’ racks, with their new album, “KaliYuga”. “KaliYuga” referring to the fourth of the four “Yugas” in Hinduism, the era precisely dedicated to the present age, full of conflict and… sin. The theme of Kali Yuga was also reflected in the album’s writing process.
“Since 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 parts”, Liv declares.
Musically, “KaliYuga” is LiV SiN, on steroids! Jagrell explains how the creative process developed into an energetic and varied set of songs: “We took influences from everywhere, from newer metal acts such as Architects, Parkway Drive to vocal inspiration from King Diamond. I am ecstatic with the outcome”.
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.
“KaliYuga” will be released on digital, digipack CD and LP (black vinyl, limited to 500 units) via Mighty Music on January 27th, 2023.
