Street Symphonies Records & Burning Minds Music Group announce the signing of Lipz, glam/hard rock band from SWEDEN, for the release of their brand new album called "Scaryman".
Alive from 2011, when Klintberg bros Alexander (Vocals, Guitar) and Koffe (Drums) decided to put togheter a new band with long time mate Conny Svärd (Guitar).
With this line-up, Lipz entered the studio to begin the recordings of their first single "Ghost Town, released in September 2012, followed three years after by their EP called "Psycho".
An endless research for a stable bass-player slowed down the process of making a full studio album, which took three years to be finally completed (with Alexander handling the bass duties himself).
This album is surely brilliant and is another right shot of BURNING MINDS GROUP.
The style is a smart 80's hard rock, with well-groomed vocals, son of Mötley Crüe, QUIET RIOT and many other classic bands, but the style is deeply own, so as not to be derivatives.
There are melodic drops but riffs are often raws; there aren't fillers, maybe except TICK TOCK, that I can't quit get by.
The last shot is an acoustic ballad called CLOSE MY EYES.
INTERESTING GLAM/HARD ROCK BAND FROM SWEDEN; THEY KNOW ALL ABOUT THE BREAKING OF A WALNUT! RAW RIFFFING, MELODIC PARTS AS LONG AS IT TAKES, FANCY CHORUS!
