Ruff Justice is the fifth studio record by Swedish Glam Metal band Crazy Lixx, and the first to feature new guitarists Chrisse Olsson and Jens Lundgren.  Set to be released April 21, 2017, Ruff Justice is the record fans of ’80s Glam Rock and Hair Metal have hoped would be created. Every song could easily have been a radio Top 10 in the heyday of this genre. Danny Rexon’s vocals are clean and powerful, and spot on, delivered with abundant Rock and Roll swagger, very reminiscent of Kip Winger and Sebastian Bach.  Members Joél Cirera – drums and Jens Sjöholm – bass round out the lineup of Crazy Lixx, and turn in stellar performances as well.

The songs are well written, and the record is a top-notch production.  Ruff Justice covers the gamut of styles within the genre, and the listener will hear elements of Winger, Whitesnake, Ozzy, Kiss, Dokken, Ratt, and many others of the best of the best and most influential artists of the era. It’s very rare indeed to have every song be a winner on a record, and Ruff Justice accomplishes exactly that.  Three of the songs, “Live Before I Die”, “XIII” and “Killer” , were selected to be used on the soundtrack of the video game version of Friday the 13th, The Game, scheduled for a 2017 release.   If you are a fan of Glam Rock and ’80s Hair Metal, you owe it to yourself to listen to this record.  You won’t be disappointed.

    Stevie was a reviewer here at Metal Express Radio. He is currently the lead guitarist for Melodic Rock band Red Reign, based in Richmond, Virginia, USA. Red Reign toured with Tesla in 2017, and shared the stage with Dokken, FireHouse, Lita Ford, Kix, Quiet Riot, and others at various dates around the US in 2018. Stevie heard his first KISS record at the age of 6 and was immediately hooked on Rock and Roll guitar. Over the course of years his tastes evolved, graduating from KISS to Ozzy and Van Halen; and then into Hair Metal. Over time, harder and faster music drew him. Bands like Metallica, Pantera, and Anthrax led the way, and Killswitch Engage took him over the top. Stevie has a deep passion for the guitar, not only playing them, but building them as well.
