LYZANXIA Mind Crimes CD Review by: Jeb Have you heard this new CD by LYZANXIA? No? Then you haven't heard the best metal CD of the year! This is destined to be a masterpiece. You might as well jump on the band wagon now, before it runs you over.
LYZANXIA combine the progressive songwriting that marks the best of neo Euro-metal with the unbridled fury of the best of 80s thrash metal. Into the mix they introduce just a hint of the ultra-violent approach to metal brought to the foreground by the Death bands of Scandinavia and Florida circa 1993. The sum of the parts has got to be heard to be believed. Maybe we should call this scythe metal because it is an album that will cut a broad swath across metallic genres mowing down fans across the board. Another critic made the observation that if this album had been released by an American band (instead of a French one) that everyone would be in awe. Although I tend to agree with that sentiment, I've got to say that this CD is so impressive that I can't believe it won't garner the attention it deserves regardless.
