What the hell is a music review doing on a Fetish art site!? Well, read below.
Don’t let my trademark cowboy hat fool you. Anyone that knows me knows I’m a metal head at heart. Whether doing the driving gig, or staying up late drawing Dommes and subs, I thrive on high energy music that raises the hair on the back of your neck and guns the heart like a hemi.
So, it’s a little ironic as I’m winding down before bed, and I’m exploring the music video clips on MUZU.com, that I find the thumbnail for a video featuring what looks like a hot, uniform-clad Dominatrix.
You know me! Of course I’m going to click it!
Then the video proceeded to kick my ass, and I couldn’t get the song out of my head.
The song is called Chaos Royale, it’s by a band called Sister Sin and fronted by Liv Jagrell. The guitar work is classic metal, with a damn good hook that gets your attention, but it is Jagrell’s voice that drags you into the dungeon and won’t let go. The anthem style guitar work, machine gun drums, and vocals with the power of a shotgun, but the bite of a whip power a metal sound I haven’t heard since the 80′s. It is damn fucking good.
It’s the first time I’ve wanted to call a band Femdom metal. Sister Sin has been around for over 10 years, but if you haven’t heard them before, it may be because they’re from Sweden and have been making the moves on the US market for about six years. With lyrics like Now the whole world is my personal bitch! their uncompromising classic metal style won’t be on a mainstream radio station anytime soon. Which is a pity, because Sister Sin is exactly what mainstream rock stations like KLOS and KROQ need in order to refresh their listenership.
But let’s get back to the lyrics, and why Sister Sin is getting love from a BDSM art site. If Liv Jagrell’s dominating voice doesn’t inspire you right into submission, her lyrics might. Chaos Royale is Jagrell’s anthem of world domination, raising an army to serve at her beck and call. Fight Song includes Pray that God forgives, because I don’t! This is Femdom music if I ever heard it. Jagrell dresses the part as well. Her wardrobe includes a leather bra studded with spikes, military uniforms, fishnets, corset belts, and you’ll find her studded gloves wielding a big whip. Goddamn, this just warms my kinky heart!
I seriously doubt this is going to replace typical scene music you can flog and whip to, but don’t be surprised if many Dommes embrace Sister Sin as their personal soundtrack. Subs from around the world should be bowing to her greatness.
Chaos Royale is on Sister Sin‘s latest album, Black Lotus. You can find them on iTunes, but go to www.SisterSin.com for CD’s, t-shirts and even vinyl albums. If you’ve been long disappointed by the metal of the 90′s and the millennium, Sister Sin will restore your faith in metal!
