CD Review: Lexx Luther Vandroz - World Dominatrix

Lexx Luther Vandroz - World Dominatrix
2008, Lexx Luther Vandroz

Big bad blues inflected guitar rock is back. Wilmington, Delaware’s Lexx Luther Vandrozz swaggers out of the darkness, guitar in hand, ready to do battle with the forces of pithy pop. This alter-ego of popular Wilmington band Cadre builds a sound around big guitars, a Hammond B3 Organ and one of the tightest rhythm sections this side of the Mississippi. Lexx Luther Vandroz' debut album, World Dominatrix is currently being prepared for release. You'd best be ready.

Lexx Luther Vandroz could musically stand up with many of the icons of early 70's hard rock/heavy metal. The fact that they unleash a riotous sense of humor at times in their music in no way diminishes how hard these guys rock. If anything, the willingness to not take themselves too seriously raises the bar just a notch higher. The six song EP opens with Deep Contact, a heavy metal slow jam if ever there was one. Mike Tyson On Cocaine is one of the funniest new songs I've heard this year, and is musically a second cousin to Walk This Way (I suspect this was intentional). Make sure to check out Flash Or Trash and Gravity Shifting as well: Both songs are guaranteed to knock your socks off.

Lexx Luther Vandroz brings the chutzpah back to rock and roll. World Dominatrix is twenty-three minutes of in your face Rock N Blues. Put this disc on your shopping list, particularly if your stereo goes up to eleven.

Rating: 4 Stars (Out of 5)

Nice review. These songs are tougher than John Wayne's saddle sores. Glad to read someone still likes rock and roll music.
