A note from the band to metalheads about the new album:
"With this album we really captured the raw essence of Sister. We consider ourselves to be a live band and we think that it comes forward on these songs. For example the sound we wanted on HATED was pretty much the sound we expect from a live show and the song order was done like we use to decide a set list for gigs. When the album really started to take form it became clear to us that this was an album that was going to be exactly what we wanted from the start. Everything fell into the right places and the ideas turned out just right. A lot of times you get something good out of chaos and of course this was no exception. But in the end with a result that was just like we had planned from the beginning. All the people that have been working with us, making this album, have really understood our ideas and it's been great working with every one of them. This is a record filled with dirt, raw energy, heavy riffs and catchy choruses. All things Sister is about. So check out our debut album HATED and don't miss the chance if you have it to see us live!"

Cover art for HATED was created by Kim Oktavia who is an artist/tattoo artist in Stockholm Sweden and photographer Axel Engström, also from Stockholm Sweden. The band comments; "The cover art for the album are made of us and our close friends Kim Oktavia and Axel Engström. Kim is the bands tattoo artist pretty much as the whole band gets their tattoos at her studio. She worked with the pictures that we took with Axel and really made them come to life. We did the layout with Axel afterwards and we are stoked over the result. The final cover and booklet blows our minds every time we see it. We have taken photos with Axel a lot times and it felt right to work with people that really understand what we want and are on the same page all the time. So it couldn't have been better and when everybody sees the result they will see what we mean."
About the band:
SISTER, who hails from Stockholm/Jönkoping Sweden, formed in early 2006 working hard to build up a name as a strong act both live and in the studio. SISTER consists of 4 members- Jamie on vocals, Lestat on guitars and backing vocals, Rikki on bass and backing vocals, and Cari on drums and backing vocals- who combine the sounds of Punk, Glam, Rock, and Metal with an end result sounding something like the bastard child of GG Allin and Guns N' Roses.
SISTER's Metal Blade debut HATED will be annihilating the world come June 7th, 2011. Stay tuned to MetalBlade.com and the band's websites for further details over the coming months.
