Yeah, I was away for some time but I’ve got pretty good excuse to be honest, university exams haha. Good thing is that ”Sleazy Sunday” is back!
There wasn’t any ”too” big news luckily even though Sweden Rock Festival happened which is probably one of the biggest festivals.
The Local Band, Finnish supergroup which consists of Alexi Laiho from Children Of Bodom on guitar, The 69 Eyes’ drummer Jussi 69 and Reckless Love’s singer Olli Herman, made a shocking announcement this week about Archie Cruz (playing bass here) leaving the band to spend time working on his own music. The band wishes him the best and has stated that their new full time bassist is Samy Elbanna from the Finnish thrash metal band, Lost Society. The news came as a bit of a shock to some fans. None the less, this is the end of an era, but also the start of a new one.
Now that I mentioned Olli Herman, the original merry metalhead, he made a news again with his second solo single called ”Tahdon Vann Ajaa” (”I Wanna Ride”). This and his first single ”Hei Vaan Moi” are pretty different from what he usually does with Reckless Love.
Crazy Lixx are still in the studio working on their sixth album and as they’ve said, if you liked Ruff Justice, you’ll definitely like this one. I’m pretty excited about it.
Italian rockers Sandness have celebrated 10 years as a band and have announced that they’ll be hitting the studio to record their third album. Nice way to celebrate it.
From now on, Shiraz Lane‘s music can be found on a video game soundtrack!
Brand new rally/demolition derby game Wreckfest, by the creators of legendary FlatOut series now includes two Shiraz Lane tracks, “Harder To Breathe” and “Tidal Wave”.
Now, The Sweden Rock Festival kicked off this week on June 6th. It featured acts such as Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest, Vixen, Glenn Hughes and dozens of other major global acts. It also featured a few Swedish sleaze bands. Hardcore Superstar headlined the opening night. Crazy Lixx and H.E.A.T played on the 7th. And Crashdiet played the next day.

It’s been too long but now I’m back and hopefully there won’t be breaks this long in the future.
And most importantly, keep your hair up and rock on!
