Toxic Virgin - Sulphur
Toxic Virgin stands for pure rock music, boundless energy, catchy refrains and acclaimed live gigs. In short: hard'n heavy music, which is a lot of fun and covers the whole range of heavy rock.
With the accrual line-up Toxic Virgin have been together since 1995 and published three CD's.
Toxic Virgin embodies a lifestyle and not a short-lived fashion. In other words:
Rock'n roll is coming home!
 
This is a short piece from their very short biography.
It didn't tell me a lot of their style of music but I would soon find out.
I popped the disc in my stereo and just sat back en enjoyed the ride!
 
I first had to get used to the voice of the singer but after listening to it a few times it was pretty cool to listen to. These guys have their own sound, which I don't say very often. The bio says that they play Rock 'n Roll but if you ask me they could better say all-round because their album is pretty all-round.
For example track one; Evil Days is pretty metal with metal riffs in it and the sound of the singer is a bit metal like the early days, Iron Maiden and so.
But on the other hand you have tracks like the third track: Mad as Hell is a Rock 'n Roll song and sounds really different than the first song though it sounds great too.
The fifth track is a whole different style, more like the Luca Turilli stuff but it's great to hear so much variety in one album.
The last track I want to discuss is the last one; Girls Don't Drink. This song is more for fun if you ask me. It's a very merry song which in the beginning sounds if you are in a bar, and then it pops out like a real sing-a-long song, which would be great for live shows in a bar.
 
The sound of the instruments sound pretty good, almost like a professionally produced album and the CD-case itself looks pretty professional too, the disc isn't copied and over all it looks pretty good!
 
Now about the artwork, I really don't know what it has to be but I can't make anything out of it, it looks cool though.
 
Over all it's a funny album with only a few negative points; sometimes the instruments bother each other so you can't clearly hear the others.
The drums could be improved in my opinion, but it's a cool album to listen and it's not too difficult.
Great work guys!!
