Liv Sin
Follow Me
June 2017
Released: 2017, Despotz
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: JP

I dove into this album and I wasn’t armed with much knowledge of the band ahead of time. However, I know what I like to hear and Liv Sin is pretty damn cool. FOLLOW ME is the debut album, (is it a solo album?) of Liv Jagrell, formerly of Sister Sin. When that long-running Swedish act broke up a couple of years, Liv went right into her new project.



FOLLOW ME is Metal to the core with a few little hints of modernity, which thankfully are not too distracting. Jagrell’s voice is rough and raw and completely unique in my mind. She is a powerhouse vocalist, her roar is convincing and energetic and when she sings in a slower, dare I say more feminine style, it is still a great voice. For example on the intro of the semi-power ballad, ‘Endless Roads’ we get to hear perhaps her more natural voice and it is excellent as well. Otherwise, she has a raspy intensity that sets her apart from the pack. The songs are traditional songs, not very progressive but well-written and arranged with good choruses. The band keeps things streamlined, not too many extra frills, just the occasional bit of acoustic guitar or a slight voice-over, like on ‘Killing Yourself To Live’ and some well-placed changes in tempo. The album is mostly mid-paced with lots of good crunchy in the guitar tone and everything falls nicely into a good head-banging zone. The whole album is very appealing based on good songs and ideas, not just simple, hooks and still quite heavy.



FOLLOW ME is a very decent package, it has a couple of guest stars, great production values, and a way cool cover of Fight’s ’Immortal Sin’, which is quite appropriate I think. All of these factors just add to the list of reasons why you may want to check out Liv Sin. For whatever reason, I never paid attention to Sister Sin. If any of their records are as good as this one, I’ll have to go back and check out their deep catalogue.

Liv Sin
Follow Me
June 2017
Released: Apri, Despotz Records
Rating: 5.0/5
Reviewer: Metal-Rules.com UK Team

Liv Sin is the solo project of former lead singer of "Sister Sin",Liv Jagrell. Sister Sin was active for 13 years touring throughout Europe and America, selling thousands of copies. They have been opening bands for metal bands such as Slayer and the mighty King Diamond. They also appeared on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. Since "Sister Sin" split up in 2015, Liv decided to go solo to continue her career. Her new band "Liv Sin" is consisted of members of Accept and U.D.O.



Listening to the album, you can feel the experience from all the musicians in the band. The mixing of the album is pure genius. The riffs and solos are completely magnificent. Viewing the album from the point of a solo project, as it is said, while giving attention to only the voice, you can feel it standing out from the rest of the band with its specificity. As for the vocal, even though in new composition, Liv shows the power and attitude she is known for over all these years.



The album is a mix mainly of aggressive heavy songs with some songs being slower than the others, but mainly keeping the balance for a perfect metal experience. As the album starts with "Killing Ourselves to Live" the rhythm is galloping and the only thing suitable for you to do is headbang. The closing track is "The Beast Inside", this track is slower, starting off quiet but at the end wrapping it up with powerful mix of screaming vocals, stunning solo and banging drums. Everything between these two tracks is an adventure worth going on to.
