At the intersection of Mötley Crüe Street and Steel Panther Way in the middle of Prague, Czech Republic, is a parking spot reserved for Sleazy RoXxX’s second full-length album, Topless Suicide.

The 2016 version was released in Europe with a slightly different track listing.  The 2016 version leads with “Let’s Roll”, a great choice and its strongest track. The current release leads with the slow starting “Dirty Sanchez”.   “Let’s Roll” showcases the best qualities of the four member band’s songwriting skill and musical talent with urgent guitar riffs, a strong melody and vocals with a catchy chorus, and well-placed backing vocals and keyboards to round out the sound.  Complementing the up-tempo tracks are the strong mid-tempo “Sweet Suffer In Pain” and “Last Drifter”.  The latter employs the use of rich backing vocals to create a powerful chorus.  The band’s ballad, “Crystal”, a throw away for many bands, is a success and features melodic vocals and lilting guitar.  The last song, “The Stinger”, is a contrasting head-banging, high-speed, sprint to the finish.

The production is clean with clear distinction between guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and backing vocals.  Themes are not stretched too far; most songs clock in under three and a half minutes. The vocals are a bit hot; you definitely hear the lyrics.  This is a drawback on the song “Nymphomaniac” featuring an unfortunate refrain of “libido” and “dildo”.

Surprisingly, there is room to park in the well-traveled and crowded neighborhood of Glam Metal. Sleazy RoXxX proves there’s room for a band delivering solid Glam Metal with a dash of humor.

    Zac was a reviewer here at Metal Express Radio, hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. His interest in heavy music began in the 70s with his father’s Johnny Cash albums. After cousins introduced him to Steppenwolf, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, KISS, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, Johnny Cash didn’t stand a chance. The 80s were spent in full pursuit of everything Metal: searching for new music at record stores, listening to albums, studying the covers and sleeves, and attending concerts. In the 90s, he preferred Death Metal over Grunge and hosted the Death Metal Juggernaut on WUPX in Marquette, Michigan. It was advertised as the only prime time Death Metal radio show in the country.
