With commanding might and old school conviction, SISTER SIN deliver “Desert Queen”, the second video from the bands most celebrated album, Black Lotus, on Victory Records. Watch it now at Vevo, here:
“We took a bit of inspiration from ancient times and aimed for a darker feeling in this video”, explains guitarist Jimmy Hiltula. “Since the song has a dark feel to it, yet is very melodic, we wanted to capture that along with having the Desert Queen character in it. Also, we wanted to take some focus off the band and give more room for Liv portraying this gypsy kind of woman, reading cards and being enigmatic”. Hiltula continues on the filming, “The desert shots were absolutely crucial for the whole video and 11 Frames (producer) did an awesome job with these beautiful pictures. We couldn’t be more excited about this video! We have all met the Desert Queen in our lives (or eventually will), the mystery lies beyond.”
The first video and single for “Chaos Royale”, has surpassed over 100,000 views since its premiere:

Black Lotus, on Victory Records, 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, at this location.
Black Lotus is the follow-up to 2012’s Now & Forever, and delivers SISTER SIN’s patented brand of no bullshit, full-throttle heavy metal.
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”.

SISTER SIN have delivered the heavy metal album of the decade – Black Lotus, their fifth studio album in stores on October 27, via Victory Records.
Sister Sin skillfully inject elements of classic, metal-tinged hard rock in the vein of Motley Crue, Accept, and Judas Priest, while remaining contemporary, fresh and pushing heavy metal to wider audiences, akin to bands like The Pretty Reckless and Halestorm. Revolver adds, “If you think Sister Sin are just another female-fronted metal band, you’ve got another thing comin’. Spiked and leather-clad, these Swedes crank out music for fighting hard and partying harder.”
Metal Hammer dishes out the initial preview of Black Lotus with the premiere of the “Chaos Royale” lyric video. The “Chaos Royale” digital single and Black Lotus digital pre-order are available now at iTunes and Amazon Music.
