I guess some of what I want to convey here might prove a bit redundant, though no one's phrased what I want to quite the same way so I'm posting anyway. I was really surprised by how few listeners this band has, as everything about them is great (most emphasis on vocals for sure though). The only real hypothesis I have is that their glam image detracts from their reputation as "true" metal for some metalheads and/or simply generally degrades their quality to some, but in response to the argument I've seen some people have over whether they're best defined as glam, power, or general/traditional heavy metal, I'd put most emphasis on the latter and least emphasis on the former, though they combine elements of all three to some degree IMO. Whatever sub-genre they're best characterized by though, they definitely deserve more acclaim/attention than they seem to actually receive. Like most others here, I'm definitely looking forward to another album provided it actually does come out :-).
These guys are really good. The perfect mixture of that Glam LA metal sound with semi-technical dual melodies and proficient solos. I had written these guys off as a WASP clone, only to discover that they are better musicians than WASP!
Saw them live two years ago at Wacken.. the stage-show was awesome beyond words... blood, leather, semi-exposed female bosom and Lizzy switching masks every other song.. oh, and the music was nice, too.
Exactly. Lizzy Borden is a heavy / power metal band. "Glam / hair metal" isn't even a real genre of music anyway (bands put under that label could be heavy metal, power metal, hard rock, or even pop). Let me say it again: "glam / hair" metal is a label, not a music genre.
