City's Gonna Burn
Rating
Style: Groovy heavy metal
Release date: June 26th 2009
 

City's gonna burn, Lz Rockit's first album from 1984, is now rereleased and you might already have enjoyed it for a while. I hadn't, and I have to say, it was a miss, as this album is a pure rock n' roll experience, real party winner and great guitar music.

The band's first record in its new apanage presents an extremely groovy sound and the bass is given the place it deserves in the sound image, which is giving the release a star in my book. The voice, on its side, could have been less dominating.

Given the fact that this is a rerelease, the compos aren't to be judged as usual. To say a few words, I hear they were written in 1984, and Metallica's Whiplash, among others, are just around the bend; great inspiration Lz Rockit had.

This first record stands kind of alone in Lz Rockit's discography, as the band soon substituted the catchy rock groove on City's gonna burn with more thrashy tunes. The band has always been a bit seeking to me, but I am glad to hear where they come from through City's gonna burn.

Are you by chance a nostalgic of thrash and roll? Touch!
