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.
“Ruff Justice” is the first Crazy Lixx album to feature the new lineup of Chrisse Olsson and Jens Lundgren handling the axe patrol.
Shot With a Needle of Love’ treads into vintage Bon Jovi territory so effectively that you’re reminded of how good that particular band used to be and how good Crazy Lixx actually are. Not since the explosion of the Mutt Lang produced Def Leppard albums of the early-mid 80’s has a band banged out so many great hooks and huge, melodic hard rock songs.
CRAZY LIXX- SHOT WITH A NEEDLE OF LOVE
The slow build and atmospherics of ‘Killer’ adds that nice bit of something extra to show you how versatile this band can be. Hunter of the Heart’ has the swagger of the Sunset Strip pumping through its vein, and ‘Snakes in Paradise’ is the sort of song any fan of 80’s Melodic Hard Rock will love.
CRAZY LIXX - WILD CHILD
The album closes out in style with the soaring AOR-tinged ballad ‘If It’s Love’ and its cascading solo; the drive and sheer joy of ‘Kiss of Judas’ and the melodic perfection of ‘Live Before I Die’. It's impressive when you can close an album just as strongly as you started out.
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! Crank this one to 10!
