Lizzy Borden - My Midnight Things

While Lizzy Borden were pretty active during their 80s heydey, since their “re-union” in the late 90s only a measly three new albums of material (this one inclusive) have been released. Some older out of print material has been re-released and updated from VHS to DVD in the case of the Murderess Metal Show and the “offshoot” band Starwood did also release an album, among countless medium scale tours, but that doesn’t really count as “new” material. Which is especially mysterious, considering the fact that Lizzy – the eponymous singer, born Gregory Charles Harges – had mentioned during an interview a decade back that during their time off he must have had demoed over a hundred or so songs.

Kissin’ Dynamite - Ecstasy

Sometimes a change is for the good and other times it is not. It depends on certain reasons each time. This time Kissin’ Dynamite hit the spot by signing to Metal Blade Records, one of the biggest metal labels globally. I think that the whole thing worked for their own benefit since they also released their best album to date, in my opinion.
