Roxin’ Palace – Freaks Of Society

Vibrant! Sick! That’s what I have to say about Roxin’ Palace’s “Freaks Of Society”. Some people thought that hard rock was dead, but it’s not. And “Freaks Of Society” gives 13 reasons not. Roxin’ Palace shows everything they learned with Kiss, Mötley Crue, Twisted Sister, Skid Row, Dr. Sin, and Warrant with a dash of 1990’s punk rock. To me, right now, from everything I heard of modern hard rock, it’s the masterpiece of this century.

Being from the 21 century and having only a glimpse of 1980’s hard rock movement, Roxin’ Palace could simply get the most cheesy templates, and that would be easier. But not! They learned the lesson so damn well. They got all the energy and power from those bands. Got the heart and soul of real hard rock. All 13 tracks are exciting and full of energy, and besides, well played as their teachers were. Let’s not forget that the best bands from the 1980’s and 1990’s had great musicians. You can recognise each band inspired each song, but only inspired. That’s much different from being a blanket full of cliches as many bands were. That’s why hard rock downfell. It got boring, predictable. Roxin’ Palace is everything but predictable. Take a look at the album concept “Freaks Of Society”. Just what we, metalheads, still are to the eyes of society.

It’s really hard to mention a highlight. And a big Hail! to songs about girls and cars, to overdriven guitars, gritty vocals! I swear I can hear in between Paul Stanley screaming “Rock and Roll”…
