Booze Control: The Lizard Rider
Booze Control The Lizard Rider CD Album Review

Booze Control The Lizard Rider

Classic Heavy Metal
4.0/5.0

The first thing I want you to do is click on the band photo for a closer look. Then ask yourself, "Is this throwback Thursday?" Well, as I write, it's not a Thursday, but a Wednesday. But Germany's Booze Control are a "throwback" to the glory days of traditional heavy metal, like the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal.

Booze Control

The Lizard Rider is the band's third long player, now signed to Inferno Records. Their sound is pretty much "classic" heavy metal: twin guitar harmony, clean vocals, some speed, at times, in the pacing, and enough rock groove to keep your toe-tapping while you bang your head. There's an abundance of brisk and soaring lead guitar solos. And typical heavy metal lyrical themes, but it appears there are no songs about booze. Nope. There's certainly nothing "modern" metal about Booze Control. No harsh riffage, no dirty vocals. It's 1982 all over again. Bottom line: if you're a unapologetic fan of old school heavy metal, you will find Booze Control to be equally uncompromising and unapologetic in their music. Best cuts: Vera, Fury Road, Nevermore (nice acoustic intro), and the speedster, Metal Frenzy.
