Crazy Lixx
New Religion
Style: Rock/Hard Rock
Release date: March 19th 2010

CRAZY LIXX is a Swedish band that started out as a sleaze rock band and debuted with ‘Loud Minority’ in 2007.


Now they are back with a follow-up named ‘New Religion and an almost new sound. They have “created their own style” and could best be described as a melodic 80’s rock/hard rock band. Think of a mix between Def Leppard’s ‘Pyromania’, 'Hysteria' and early Bon Jovi. Throw in Mötley Crüe’s ‘Dr. Feelgood’... and a bit of Hardcore Superstars and The Poodles and there you have it.


But is ‘New Religion’ worth listening to? Yes! CRAZY LIXX do know how to write a catchy tune that’s for sure. We get 12 songs and most of them are very enjoyable. Catchy choruses, catchy riffs and tasty guitar solos here and there. And even the production done by Chris Laney is top notch.


I’m not familiar with their first album ‘Loud Minority’ so I can’t compare it to this brand new CD. But I will try to hunt it down and give it a listen.


I think you should check ‘New Religion’ out if you’re into the above mentioned bands and albums. The band deserves it.


Nice one!
