Sister SinSwitchblade Serenades
Record Label: Victory
Release Date: 2008
When most people think of 80’s metal, the first thing that comes to mind is the hair bands. While manufactured acts like Poison and Warrant have inspired much of today’s VH1 programming, they often cast a shadow on true metal bands like Iron Maiden, Dio, and Motorhead that were churning out classic metal albums one after another.

Sister Sin’s Switchblade Serenades sounds like it came straight out of the 80’s NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) movement that continues to inspire much of today’s metal music. Borrowing heavily from Judas Priest and Motorhead, the album is full of energy and angst from start to finish.

While Switchblade Serenades is not breaking any ground (which conflicts with track 4’s title), it is still an enjoyable listen for those who cherish classic metal from the 80’s. With heavy riffing, blazing guitar solos, and in-your-face vocals, these Swedish rockers have come with one purpose – to rock!
