Lizzies: Good Luck
Lizzies Good Luck CD Album Review

Lizzies: Good Luck

(Melodic) Hard Rock/Heavy Metal
4.0/5.0

Lizzies hail from Madrid, taking their name from one of the gangs, the only female gang, in the 1979 cult film The Warriors directed by Walter Hill. The band arrives with their first long player in Good Luck on The Sign Records label.

The quartet's sound can be distilled down quite easily: melodic hard rock with a metal edge and a punk tone. The songs build upon groove and melody, then crank things up with sharp riffs and stinging guitar solos. Actually, one of the best things about the band and the songs is Patricia's guitar lines and leads. She's a true hard rock and heavy metal guitar slinger.

The punk edge comes from the voice of vocalist Elena, who has more than a little classic punk sneer. Conversely, she's also difficult to understand. Honestly, I'm not sure she can sing all that well. It may simply be that she's not singing in her native language. You also get some punk vibe from the several songs that bump up the tempo for something akin to speed metal punk, like 666 Miles, Speed On The Road, and One Night Woman. Lastly, of some interest, Lizzies know how to develop a song. They keep things tight and compact, preferring brevity and directness over extravagance in a three to four minute song. Although this formula doesn't work with the final number 8 Ball, largely the most "metal" song here, but also the most dull.

Overall, excepting the vocals which, for me, the verdict is still out, Lizzies definitely deliver solid heavy metal infused melodic hard rock. Good Luck is a fine first effort. Recommended.
