Liv Sin – Inverted (Despotz Records)

I loved the previous album from our Swedish heavy metal sister and with this EP she explores what else she can do with her voice and with her band and it’s absolutely great and she’s working on a new album! Out: 25/5/2018!

In the past she worked together with Jyrki 69 from The 69 Eyes and on this one you can hear that they share a bit of the same gothic rock, rockabilly and country & western influences. On this EP there are only 3 songs, could have been more, but what you get is really worth it.

It starts with the song called Devil’s Plaything: an acoustic track with a country & western bluesy feel (and yes it’s a Danzig cover). It’s catchy as hell, a real earworm (listen to the backings). It feels like exploring a new path and really love it! More blues comes with Black Souls (think about Blue Hotel from Chis Isaac). Killing Ourselves to Live is more into soft-rock (with a cool pinao and cello), with a dark and sharp edge but also very sticky (check the chorus). The fragility in the end shows of the other side of this great artist! It’s a soft end, but in the end I listened to this EP half a day on repeat all and don’t regret it!

Once again an artist from Scandinavia got me hooked! Somehow their artists get me so fast addicted, it’s really incredible!
