Swedish heavy metal band LIV SIN, featuring ex. Sister Sin singer Liv Jagrell, has entered the studio to record the successor to their 2017 debut album 'Follow Me.' For the upcoming second album the Swedish quintet has chosen to record with producer Emil Nödtveidt of Deathstars in Black Syndicate Studios.

On why the band came to choose Emil Nödtveidt as producer, singer Liv Jagrell says: ”We wanted to explore a more modern sound with some synthesizers and I think that this album might surprise a lot of our fans. I have known Emil since many years back, so it was really fun to reconnect. The first moment he sent us his ideas of our demos I was delirious!”

The band recorded their debut 'Follow Me' with Stefan Kaufmann (previously of Accept & U.D.O.) and had guest performances from Jyrki 69 (69 Eyes) and Schmier (Destruction). The sound had a classic metal vibe with Liv's aggressively piercing yet melodic signature vocals. Guitarist Chris Bertzell explains how the songwriting process differed from their debut: ”For the first album LIV SIN was only Patrick, Liv and Per. Now we have spent two years together as a complete band of five on the road and in the studio. Along with more songwriters the band has evolved into having a lot more attitude and catchy melodies."
