The official lyric video for "Slave To The Machine", a brand new single from LIV SIN, the Swedish band led by former SISTER SIN vocalist Liv "Sin" Jagrell, can be seen below.
Liv comments on the track: "In today's world, it feels like you are more and more controlled by other people and material things, rather than being able to have full power over your own life choices. That's what 'Slave To The Machine' is about. Historically, conflicts used to often be about the people versus 'men of power' and society, but today it's also about the worshipping of smartphones, social media and others approval. What does that do to our lives and minds? In the end, it might just be another way to control us. This is definitely a concern for me, and I wonder where we are heading when everyone becomes a 'slave to the machine'."
"Slave To The Machine" is taken from LIV SIN's upcoming album, "Burning Sermons", which will be released on September 6 via Despotz Records. The disc was produced by Emil Nödtveidt (DEATHSTARS) at Black Syndicate studio.
Channelling the band's love of classic heavy metal with a bruising modern edge, "Burning Sermons" is a riff-heavy collection; showcasing LIV SIN's innate ability to match melody with aggressive metal with ease. Jagrell is in particularly fine form throughout, with a voice equally capable of capturing your heart as it is knocking buildings to the ground.
Liv comments on her decision to work with Emil: 'We wanted to explore a more modern sound with some synthesizers on this album. I think that this album might surprise a lot of our fans. I have known Emil for many years, so it was really fun to reconnect. The first moment he sent us his ideas of our demos, I was delirious."
LIV SIN's upcoming single "Hope Begins To Fade" features a guest appearance by SOILWORK singer Björn "Speed" Strid.
The band is currently planning its upcoming European tour and is confirmed for major festivals such as Sabaton Open Air and Skogsröjet.
LIV SIN's acclaimed 2017 debut album was co-produced by German metal musicians Stefan Kaufmann (U.D.O., ACCEPT) and Fitty Wienhold (U.D.O.) and featured guest appearances by Schmier from DESTRUCTION and Jyrki 69 of THE 69 EYES.
