Toxic Heart: Ride Your Life
Toxic Heart Ride Your Life new music review

Toxic Heart Ride Your Life

Melodic Hard/Sleaze/Glam Rock
Rating: 4.5/5.0

Toxic Heart are having too much fun on their premier release Ride Your Life. Invoking all the best of melodic rock and roll from past, mostly the raucous 1980's, Toxic Heart blends infectious vocal arrangements with clever melodic hooks and exceptional musicianship to create a class act. Sounding at times like Wig Wam crossed with other contemporaries like Naughty Boys or Vains of Jenna, Toxic Heart delivers rowdy rock that veers from gutter raunch to sophisticated and intricate melodic rock within the same song (Love Is For Fools and The One).

Using simple first names like GG, Rider, and Axl, Toxic Heart may suppose the worst of 80's Sunset Boulevard. But you would be wrong. First, because Toxic Heart can actually create a good song and play well. Ride Your Life and The One show this to be true. Second, Toxic Heart shows us that rock and roll is always the same: a good beat and a steady pace coupled with good melodic hooks and fresh guitar leads truly kicks ass. Listen to Ticket, New Generation, Ride Your Life, or Big Time and you will understand.

Toxic Heart's Ride Your Life is solid melodic rock bringing the big hooks of 80's arena rock with all the blistering glitz and glam. What is better is that this band can actually compose great songs and play well. Raise your fists and blaze the lighters because Toxic Heart is the real deal. Very recommended!
