Crazy Lixx is a Swedish glam metal band, formed in Malmö, Sweden in 2002. The group is another band belonging to the Swedish hard rock scene, with influences from bands like Guns N' Roses, Aerosmith, Kiss, Whitesnake, Alice Cooper, Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe. Crazy Lixx have released a video clip for "Hell Raising Women", the first single from their upcoming album. The band's forthcoming self-titled studio album is due for release on November 7th in Europe and November 11th in North America through on Frontiers Music Srl.'Crazy Lixx' is the Swedish band's third release with Frontiers Music and is the follow-up to their 2012 masterpiece 'Riot Avenue'. That disc reached #4 on the Sleaze Roxx Top 10 of 2012 and was voted fourth best album of the year by readers of the website, trailing only Van Halen, KISS and Slash.Says lead singer and producer Danny Rexon, "We were discussing possible titles for the album and we didn't really feel like any of the suggestions were quite right. Then I came up with the idea of a making it a self-titled album and we all agreed this was the right time for one. You know, bearing the very name of the band, a self-titled album does have a lot to live up to, but we all felt that this album has what it takes to represent the band as a whole, both in terms of the songs, the sound and the performance."With their new album, Crazy Lixx show their growth as a band by sinking their teeth into eleven anthemic rock songs that will satisfy both the hardcore fans, as well as all fans of melodic hard rock and hair metal in general. By combining the strategies of recording and producing the album themselves, along with utilizing the mixing skills of the great Chris Laney, the band has once again returned to the bombastic sound of Crazy Lixx's earlier work while at the same time adding the improved song-writing and musicianship of today's Crazy Lixx."We learnt a lot through the years, especially when it comes to the recording process and we put all that knowledge and experience to use on this album. We used many different studio settings to record different parts of the album and did not rush the recording, but made sure everything was as good as it could get. At the same time we did not want to be too nitpicking with details, I mean we're still in the business of rock n' roll, right?," adds guitarist and co-producer of the album Andy Zata.In addition to returning to the old Crazy Lixx sound, the band has also re-recorded fan favorite "Heroes Are Forever" which was originally on the band's first, now out of print album. "It's this one song, that was our first single back in around 2006, that we've played on almost every live show we've done since then, but when we started to think about it, it was a song that a lot of our fans had no chance to ever listen to. The first album, 'Loud Minority', was released on a minor independent label, in a limited printing which has long since sold out, and it isn't available digitally either. Still we felt that the track was one of those songs that had a really fundamental Crazy Lixx vibe to it, so we decided to record it again and give the fans a nice treat. If you ask me, it came out way better this second time around," says drummer Joel Cirera.Newest and youngest member, bassist Jens Sjoholm adds, "Being my first album release with Crazy Lixx I don't really have any special expectations, but hearing the final result and seeing how fired up the guys are about it makes me look forward to seeing the reactions of the fans and media."With the addition of Jens Sjoholm and the return of original drummer Joel Cirera, Crazy Lixx Mk III proved to be the best line-up to date, both in concert and on record. "I think the fans will really enjoy what we've got in store for them with this album. Killer songs, great sound and memorable hooks combined with a bit of the twin guitar action and riff-based approach that we added to the sound on our last album," says guitarist Edd Liam."It's really a bit of a do or die, no guts, no glory situation -- after all, you only get one chance to do a self titled album, so make sure you do it good," concludes Danny Rexon.
Let the battle for Swedish rock supremacy begin! Even though there are countless talented rock bands pouring out of Sweden these days, in my opinion only three bands can rightfully claim to be the current kings of the castle. Those three are Hardcore Superstar, Crashdiet and Crazy Lixx – and all three are releasing, and or working on, new material in 2010, so this may be the year we can crown a champion!Crazy Lixx are the first to step up to the plate with their second full-length release, following the same formula that made Loud Minority an instant classic. With the tight production of Chris Laney (once again) this relatively new band have a perfectly polished sound. Occasionally I get the feeling that the band is being over-produced, but then they lay down a killer hard rock track and all is forgotten.Few bands are able to capture the sound of the ’80s as well as Crazy Lixx. It is the sound of huge sing-a-long choruses, furious guitar work (supplied by newcomer Andy Dawson, who replaced Vic Zino when he defected to Hardcore Superstar), and memorable songs. Crazy Lixx do it all, whether it be full throttle rockers, mid-tempo melody or heartfelt ballads, these four guys have created the ultimate recipe for success. “21 ‘Til I Die”, “Road To Babylon” and “Lock up Your Daughter” find the band at their rocking best while “Blame It On Love” has that obvious Laney feel dripping all over it. Slowly but surely Crazy Lixx are stepping into Def Leppard‘s shoes, filling the void that Lep vacated years ago. “My Medicine” and “Voodoo Woman” are perfect examples of that.I only have one complaint with New Religion, and that is a sound that is driving me bat-shit crazy in the percussion of “Rock And A Hard Place”. Is it just me, or does anyone else hear what appears to be the sound of a computer giving an error message throughout this track? It is subtle, but it’s making me insane as I find myself constantly listening for it, thus ruining an otherwise killer cut.So there you have it, yet another exceptional release from Crazy Lixx. Will New Religion set Crazy Lixx above their Swedish counterparts? That’s hard to say, but the bar has been set awfully high! If this truly is a ‘new religion’, bow down to your new maker — exceptional melodic rock.
