Sister Sin Debut “Desert Queen” Video
March 1, 2015
Sister Sin have released the latest music video from their recent studio album ‘Black Lotus’, this time in the form of “Desert Queen”. The album’s first video and single, for “Chaos Royale”, has surpassed over 100,000 views since its premiere.
“We took a bit of inspiration from ancient times and aimed for a darker feeling in this video”, explains guitarist Jimmy Hiltula. “Since the song has a dark feel to it, yet is very melodic, we wanted to capture that along with having the Desert Queen character in it. Also, we wanted to take some focus off the band and give more room for Liv portraying this gypsy kind of woman, reading cards and being enigmatic.” Hiltula continues on the filming, “The desert shots were absolutely crucial for the whole video and 11 Frames (producer) did an awesome job with these beautiful pictures. We couldn’t be more excited about this video! We have all met the Desert Queen in our lives (or eventually will), the mystery lies beyond.”
Sister Sin will soon plant their feet on U.S. soil, touring in support of ‘Black Lotus’, with more details to be revealed soon. In the meantime, Sister Sin’s European fans can catch them on tour now alongside U.D.O. (featuring former Accept frontman Udo Dirkschneider).

‘Black Lotus’ was released on October 27th, 2014, through Victory Records and reached #25 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart . Sleaze Roxx said the album was the Swedish band’s “most diverse” while stating, “whether Black Lotus is Sister Sin’s greatest record is irrelevant because one thing is certain, it is one of the best albums of the year and the Swedish foursome have delivered the metal goods once again.”
Written by guitarist Jimmy Hiltula and drummer Dave Sundburg, the ‘Black Lotus’ story began in May at Leon Music Studios outside Karlstad, Sweden, with Rikard Lofgren and Gustav Ydenius, along with Cameron Webb (Motorhead, Megadeth) on board to mix.
Vocalist Liv Jagrell discussed the origin of the title by saying, “the album title Black Lotus came up after a couple songs were already written. They seemed to have a darker touch than before and somehow Black Lotus summed that feeling up. Lyric-wise, the inspiration comes from all kinds of places. Mostly personal struggles but also politics and fiction.”
