I listened to the new album that came out this year (the self-titled) on Spotify and it is awful, in my opinion. It sounds like if they were a sleaze band in the late 80s, what their new album would've sounded like in 1995. Whatever album you might hate from your favorite sleaze band, that's probably what this is like.

Interesting. I thought the newer s/t album sounded pretty good. The little bits I've heard anyway.

Listening to the 3 clips you posted with fresh ears, maybe my comments were a bit harsh...I can hear something kinda okay in the first and third video you posted...but still, compared to the debut full length, with songs like the below, I just can't really get into it. They put way too much of a non-sleazy spin into their music for my taste on the s/t.

What's even more baffling to me is some of the music tags the band has on their Wiki page. Under genres, Santa Cruz is tagged with: Hard Rock (ok), Glam Metal (I can see that), Groove Metal (Uh, maybe I guess) and Melodic Metalcore (Huh? WTF?)

Am I missing something there? Do they incorporate metalcore screaming in some songs?

Another band that has some Skid Row tendencies. Not so much in the vocals, but enough grit in their hair metal melodies to take note. Even the ballad is good. Not too sappy. Yet another new-ish band from Sweden...Confess



Or listen to the whole Jail album here...

Yeah dude that record was one of my favorites last year. Their prior EP is good too.

I feel like a really negative dude right now, but I've been getting soured on a lot of this current sleaze (and even my old favorites too are getting really stale to me), but this one stuck out as one of the better of the recent crop, in my opinion.

I can see the Skid Row-iness, at least in the Reckless Love would be to Poison what Confess might be to Skid Row. Or something.

I try to be a little more reserved and picky when it comes to modern sleaze bands, especially all the ones coming out of Sweden (something in the water there?), so I too don't get burned out. I wan't immediately sold on Confess from the first single, but I played the album through a couple times and it was pretty darn catchy. The price was right too ($8 shipped). That played a big part.

I used to like their first two albums quite a bit when I was getting into music. Nowadays, they're a band that I choose not to listen to outside of sports arenas.

Cool. I read about them on SleazeRoxx.com. They made the reader's poll Top 10 list, so they seemed worth checking out. Glad I did.

Mad Margritt? Their Animal CD sounds quite like Skid Row IMO. A few tracks from it:




Perris Records has this cd on sale (along with quite a few other artists) if anyone is so inclined to add more Mad Margritt to their collections...

Speaking of EMN, Rick Ruhl was in a band called Hard Knox from Knoxville, TN. I saw them a few times when I was in high school. Not sure if the band renamed or if he left and joined EMN. Not sure if he is on this song or not as they had a few different singers. I know when I saw Hard Knox in the 80's Rick was on vocals.

If this is the same Hard Knox (and I believe it is), their album Psyco's R Us was recently re-released through Divebomb Records...

http://tribunalrecords.bandcamp.com/album/psycos-r-us-deluxe-edition

Check out Track 2, 'R.R. Tracks'. It's the same song, isn't it? I picked up the album recently and it's very good. I'd recommend it.

Yeah same song but I am wondering if it is the same band. The bandcamp link does have the band name and the song but I believe it is a different band... Whoever posted the video may have gotten the band mixed up and posted the song from Psycho's R Us by mistake mixing up the bands... I am not familiar with the song so I assumed it was the same band.

I think this is from the Knoxville band Hard Knox and it is definitely demo cassette quality

Looks like Heavy Harmonies has listings for 2 separate bands named Hard Knox. One's from Knoxville (1980's) and one is from Utah (1990's). They both sound pretty decent though.

Nope wasn't me. I did get a digital download of it though. Best new sleaze I've heard for a while!

I just bought this cd the other day and it's pretty good. Not sure it really reminds me of Skid Row, but it's good nonetheless.
