The heavy metal album of the year has arrived! Black Lotus, the highly-anticipated new album from Sweden’s SISTER SIN is in stores today! Accompanying the full length release, the powerful music video for the first single “Chaos Royale” is being shown exclusively on Loudwire.com.
Written by guitarist Jimmy Hiltula and drummer Dave Sundburg, the Black Lotus story began in May at Leon Music Studios outside Karlstad, Sweden, with Rikard Lofgren and Gustav Ydenius, along with Cameron Webb (Motorhead, Megadeth) on board to mix.
Vocalist Liv Jagrell discusses the origin of the title: “The album title Black Lotus came up after a couple songs were already written. They seemed to have darker touch than before and somehow Black Lotus summed that feeling up. Lyric-wise, the inspiration comes from all kinds of places. Mostly personal struggles but also politics and fiction”.
The reviews are in and the press the world-over agree, Black Lotus is a high-energy force to be reckoned with
