MAXXWELL Reveal ‘Metalized’ Album Details, Video Teaser Posted

Swiss hardrock/metal band, MAXXWELL, have announced the release of their fourth album ‘Metalized‘ on September 21, 2018Metalized says it all – many concerts have left their mark. On the new record, the band rocks harder, catchier and a lot more edgier than on their earlier releases.

The lyric video for the title track ‘Metalized‘ will be released on June 29, 2018. The song is a homage to the band’s big influences, with a bit of a wink. A video teaser can be viewed here:

Sometimes it takes a little longer for a work to reach completion. This is what happened with MAXXWELL, who have taken a full four years to produce their fourth release, “Metalized“. Thanks to the strength of the band’s last album, “Tabula Rasa“, they played support on tours with Michael Schenker’s Temple Of RockDoroKissin’ DynamiteRage & Shakra and support slots for Within TemptationExtremeGloryhammer – just to name a few. In the almost 10-year career of MAXXWELL, they have performed a total of over two hundred shows.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
