AllMusic Review by

Though their hometown of Gothenburg, Sweden is best known for its primary musical export, melodic death metal, glam throwbacks Sister Sin buck tradition with their old-school leanings on their fourth album, Now and Forever. Sounding more like a lost gem from the heyday of '80s glam excess than a modern metal outfit (especially one on Victory Records), the band has a sound that feels like a pastiche rather than a parody, delivering every driving riff and sneering vocal line with a hard-edged earnestness that lets you know these guys (and gal, lest we forget about the standout performance from singer Liv Jagrell) aren't messing around. For all you jean jacket-wearing, card-carrying metalheads out there wondering what happened to the genre you once held so close to your hearts, Sister Sin have what you're looking for.
