Sister of Pain

sister.jpgToday another great new glam band, naturally from Sweden.

Meet Sister, an unsigned band from Jönköping. These boys have a great down n' dirty,  sleazy sound.

So just who are these talented, yet grossly ignored musicians?

Drummer Cari lists his main influences as Sebastian Bach, Eric Carr, Phil Anselmo and Tommy Lee. Lead singer Jamie says Vince Neil is his guide, but also counts Bret Michaels and Sebastian Bach as major influences. Bassist Al says he's his own biggest influence but his favorite bands are Alleycat Scratch (!) and Pretty Boy Floyd. The very hot guitarist Dani says he's influenced by C.C. DeVille (!) and Kristy Krash Majors and Motley Crue is one of his favorite bands. With musical taste like this, you know these boys know how to rock.

I've been tracking Sister through Myspace for about three months now. I periodically check in to see when and if these boys land a recording deal. I'm baffled that such a talented quartet remains unsigned while countless crap bands crowd the marketplace with drivel.

Sister is a technologically savvy band that illustrate their talents through a nicely constructed web page. Visit them at www.sisteronline.net or www.myspace.com/sisteronline. Listen to a few tracks and add them as friends.

I just checked them out on myspace and I can totally hear how much the singer likes Vince Neil. It also makes me realize that Vince Neil was a pretty good singer, because this guy struggles to pull it off. The music isn't bad, but they probably need a little time to find their own sound. A little more chunk in the guitars wouldn't hurt either.

Good find Allyson! Based on their influences, they must be a great band! I'll have to check them out!

They sound interesting although I am sure of any guitarist who says he is influenced by CC DeVille. I have not heard these guys yet. However I like Bob's point about Vince Neil. I have heard other singers in recent years who try copy Vince and they sound like grade B imitations. Vince Neil may not have had the greatest range, but in his prime he was unique and knew his limits.
