Guitarist and songwriter STEVE BLAZE
,,Lillian Axe Will Keep Going Until We Drop!’’
One of the bands that has always stood out and recorded gem after gem is LILLIAN AXE. The New Orleans band around guitarist and songwriter Steve Blaze has been around since 1987. It’s proven to be hardrock’s best year with tons of quality albums being unleashed upon the masses. It’s not more than obvious a band like Lillian Axe is of the ultimate high quality as the albums of that year. Lillian Axe dominated my record player since day one and has been doing so since. Their albums were (mis) labelled “hairmetal”, a term that does not do justice to the action packed melodic metal presented on their recordings over the years. `Deep Red Shadows', `Waters Rising', `Psychoschizophrenia', `Poetic Justice', and so on. All albums displayed intensity executed with precision by a band that kept on growing and kept on gaining momentum since their recording debut.
That debut and its acclaimed follow up `Love + War' recently were re-released by UK based Rock Candy Records and gotten the labels treatment. Extensive liner notes and upgraded mastering, to prove what fans and critics already knew: Lillian Axe’s music is timeless!
