Stockholm, Sweden is a new rock 'n' roll
project with members from 'Lipstixx 'n'
Bulletz', 'Sexydeath' and 'Gemini Five'. There aren't any pretty, sweet looking guys on the
EP-cover. Stiff hard look with a cool attitude
and hellish lot of hairspray in their
jet-black hair. Much leather and blackened
eyes. Musically this is a 5 piece rock 'n'
Roll EP with remarkable well written songs.
More guitar driven rock than I expected and
with a vocalist in absolute top class. They
really make my old knees shook quite intense
in the intro track 'Song for the Weak'. ToxicRose is
aiming high and this is truly a promising
start on their journey to the bigger stages.
The Poodles, Crazy Lixx, H.E.A.T and such Swedish
bands are playing in the same league,
but ToxicRose has a more blacken tone, just like a
lighter version of the heavier black rockers
in Deathstars. 'Set me Free' is a great
up-tempo song with lot of catchy chorus and
splendid singing. ToxicRose do not offer a major
technical instrumental brilliance, but with an
incredible passion and contagious energy, they
offer us a ride that makes you want to have
one hell of party!
If you are a fan of melodic party rock/metal
with strong guitars and big vocals, then this is a
band to put your eyes on. This
sounds very promising!
