The ever awesome Metal Underground did a video contest between two sisters – Electric Sister, and Sweden’s own Sister. All in good fun of course! Who won?? Find out for yourself…
WHO: Electric Sister (www.electricsistermusic.com)
WHERE: Oakland, CA
WHAT: Straight up rock and roll, think MC5 meets AC/DC meets KISS
LOWDOWN: When I think of Oakland, CA I think of the Raders, the A’s, 2 Pac, and M.C. Hammer. I’m serious, no disrespect but that’s all I really know about the joint aside from the one time I visited when I got lost and ended up driving across the Bay Bridge into Oakland. Did I mention I am fucking deathly afraid of bridges, let alone having no choice but to drive a car across a massive one? Try white knuckling it in the driver’s seat while visions of the bridge collapsing ala the earthquake of 1989 replay in a loop nonstop in your head, but I digress…

Music Review: Electric Sister – The Lost Art of Rock & Roll
Electric Sister play a brand of hard rock that I thought was lost for good. As a teenager in the seventies, I have always had a special affinity for bands such as UFO, Alice Cooper, Rush, and Ted Nugent. There was a lot of other cool stuff around too, such as all those New Wave of British Heavy Metal acts. When Motley Crue first appeared, they really hadn’t defined the “hair metal” formula yet. But along with Poison, Cinderella, and even Def Leppard, that would become the dominant strain of metal. Today we listen to those groups, and ones like them with nostalgia – and about the only thing I seem to hear about any more are the really extreme, “heavier than heavy” metal groups.
One day before the official release of the second single off of Electric Sister’s debut album The Lost Art of Rock & Roll, “I want it all”, comes the official Electric Sister Video Channel, and, the new Video for the single! Check it all out here!
Review by Scott Alisoglu
As the album title would seem to indicate, on “The Lost Art of Rock & Roll” Oakland, California’s ELECTRIC SISTER have made it their mission to teach the pretenders and the wannabes what loud, proud and hooky as hell is all about! This is one independent release that any self-respecting fan of fire breathing, ass-kickin’ hard rock absolutely needs to own. Prepare yourself for a high-decibel, high-energy good time.

Metal Delirium has a new review of The Lost Art of Rock & Roll, which they gave an 8 out of 10! -
Take a moment to travel back a couple of decades. To a time when songs not only revolved around their title, but also tended to contain its very words in their choruses. Such was a time when bands didn’t take a complete left-field or “wittier than thou” approach to giving name to the essence of their songs. This was when big, catchy choruses and guitar leads drenched in energy and booze flourished and, ultimately, reigned supreme. Electric Sister has no problem recalling such a time in the rock world. Their music directly hearkens back to it, and, on their debut, The Lost Art of Rock & Roll, they show that such a simple, straightforward approach makes for some of the best damn rock and roll.
