Crazy Lixx – Silent Thunder

Crazy Lixx – Silent Thunder

Swedish hard rockers Crazy Lixx are back with another gem of an album that harkens back to the best of ‘80s hard rock, while also keeping a foot firmly planted in the 21st century. “Forever Wild” further cements the band’s status as one of the leaders of the Scandinavian led hard rock revival, cleverly melding a sleaze/hair metal approach (reminiscent of Motley Crue, Warrant, and Winger) with voracious hooks and melodies.

With huge choruses, instantly memorable riffs, wailing, emotive guitar solos, and massive production by Danny Rexon and Chris Laney, “Forever Wild” is sure to resonate with old fans and new listeners alike. Singer Danny Rexon says, “Ruff Justice was the first album where I took on the full role of producer, including recording, engineering, editing and some of the mixing. Naturally, there were things that I learnt along the way and, in retrospect, things that could have been done better. On the new album, I was once again the producer, but this time I brought in a whole lot more experience with me and had a clearer picture of what needed to be done to get a GREAT sounding album. So, you could definitely say that the new album is a natural progression from ‘Ruff Justice’. It’s actually the first time in the history of the band where the same band members have recorded under roughly the same conditions, in the same studios, with more or less the same equipment and with the same producer. For the first time, you can hear continuity from one album to the next, so I’d say if you’re a fan of ‘Ruff Justice’, I bet you’ll enjoy this new album the same, if not even more!”

The band explores a wider range of styles than ever before on “Forever Wild”. From the hard rocking and anthemic opening track “Wicked” to the AOR inspired upcoming single “Silent Thunder,” to songs like “Eagle”, that sounds like it came off a Bon Jovi album circa 1986, Crazy Lixx manage to blend a love and reverence for ‘80s hard rock with their own unique stamp on each track. Rexon continues, “I think the way the album turned out has a lot to do with the current line-up that we established in 2016. I’ve always been a fan of melodic hard rock and hair metal, but with previous members, we’ve been pulling a bit more in different directions at times, so the result hasn’t always gone towards the goal I’d like them too, certainly not as much as it has on this album. I can honestly say that the way Crazy Lixx sounds today is a lot closer to how I envisioned the band to sound in the early 2010’s (around the time of ‘New Religion’) than how we actually sounded 5-6 years ago.”

With “Forever Wild”, Crazy Lixx have set the bar very high against their own revered and celebrated catalog. Their best album yet? We’d say so!

Don’t miss Crazy Lixx while they’re on the road in support of the album either, as their live shows are a sight to behold! Danny concludes, “On release day (May 17th), we have an album release show in our hometown of Malmö, along with fellow Frontiers band Creye. I’d recommend this event for all the fans that want to see some new songs live for the first time and get a chance to hang out with the band, get the new album signed, and all that fun stuff. After that, we’re lining up a bunch of summer festivals to kick off touring. I think there is a definite summer vibe to this album and the new songs will really fit well on an outdoor summer festival. Really looking forward to this summer’s shows.”

Shotgun Messiah - Shout It Out

Shotgun Messiah – Shout It Out

Formed around 1985 in Sweden under the name Kingpin the band changed their name to Shotgun Messiah and relocated to Hollywood, California. Shout It Out is from their first album that was released in 1989 on Relativity Records. The style of this album was typical Hair Metal fully tuned with the early 1980s American bands.

Sweden Rock Magazine ranked Shotgun Messiah #38 on their “The Best Rock Bands Of Sweden Ever” list.

Lyrics
When your bed’s too sweaty and your head feels funny
You’re tossin and turning cause your room’s too sunny
The upstair neighbour got some 15 kids
And if something’s goin’ down it’s sure your lids
And the sound of T-T-Tim’s big pumping bass makes you dye your hair makes you change your ways
I gotta get up I gotta get out I just found out what it’s all about

I was born to rock (born to rock)
Sworn to rock (sworn to rock)

Alright
Na na na na na
Yeah
Na na na na na
Alright
Na na na na na

That’s when you shout it out
Shout it out shout it louder
Shout it out (shout!), shout it louder

And well up and about cruisin’ down the street
Feelin’ good feelin’ neat as one with the beat
The dizziness is gone but your still a punk
Just out to have fun and about to get drunk
That’s when the sound of Harry K’s screaming guitar
Makes you wanna race in your old man’s car
The pedal to the metal and your pulse to the bop
The kind of bad habit that you just can’t drop

I was born to rock (born to rock)
Sworn to rock (sworn to rock)

Come on
Na na na na na
Rock on
Na na na na na
Uh
Na na na na na

That’s when you shout it out
Shout it out shout it louder
Shout shout shout
Shout it out shout it louder

Take this sucker!

Crazy Lixx – Wild Child

Crazy Lixx – Wild Child

“Crazy Lixx will be celebrating their fifteenth anniversary as a band with the release of their fifth studio album, “Ruff Justice”!

“Ruff Justice”, the 10-track sleaze metal gem that harkens back to the best of ‘80s hard rock, draws inspiration from not only music, but 1980’s horror and action flicks and is a glowing reminder that pretty much everything was better in the 80’s. With its big choruses, memorable hooks and riffs, impressive guitar solos and a massive production by Danny Rexon and Chris Laney, this album is sure to resonate with old fans and new listeners alike.

“We’ve tried the same ‘all killers-no fillers’ approach that we’ve gone for on our previous albums, but this time, more than ever, I think we’ve come close to that vision,“ says lead singer and producer Danny Rexon.

“Ruff Justice” will be the first Crazy Lixx album to feature the new lineup of Chrisse Olsson and Jens Lundgren handling the axes.

“It does bring a certain feel to the album that I think we’ve been missing since the days of ‘New Religion’ (2010). Once again the whole band pulls in the same direction and the end result, I believe, will be very well received among those who hold ‘New Religion’ in high regards. If I would compare Ruff Justice to any of our previous albums, that would have to be the one,” Danny Rexon concludes.

The album also includes two songs which have appeared on the “Friday The 13th” videogame soundtrack: “XIII” and “Live Before I Die”. Friday the 13th: The Game is an upcoming survival horror video game developed by Gun Media and IllFonic, and published by Gun Media. It is scheduled for release in early 2017 for Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

With this latest album, Crazy Lixx have set the bar very high and their live shows are going to take no prisoners! Don’t miss them while they’re on the road!”

Treat - World of Promises

Treat – World of Promises

Treat - World of Promises

1987’s Dreamhunter was the band’s third studio album, and it’s another absolutely first class melodic rock release. Treat had such an awesome sound, drawing the best elements of Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi and Europe into a very slick, polished, catchy as hell brand of arena rock. You want catchy guitar hooks and melodies? You got `em. Glorious 80’s keyboards? Oh yeah, those too. Smooth vocals? Check. Seriously, Treat had it all, and it’s a total mystery why they were kept from the airwaves in America

Crystal Blue - Back on Track

Crystal Blue – Back on Track

Crystal Blue - Back on Track

A wonderful melodic feast from beginning to end. A wonderful surprise and well worth owning if you are into high quality scandi melodic rock! This is an album of pure undiluted, sweet harmony filled AOR. This album took a few listens to get into the groove, but once you do, you will find a very strong collection of Scandinavian AOR. It has an 80’s feel to it, but not in the bad dated way. This is a very enjoyable and pleasant album, featuring sweet harmonies and light and fluffy songs. A solid production and crisp clean mix gives the album a commercial feel, which is dominated by guitars and to a lesser extent keyboards.
