Album Review

Although Enigma Records was better known for its connection to the mid-'80s Paisley Underground scene (Rain Parade, Game Theory, etc.), the Los Angeles-based indie was also among the first to document the rebirth of glam metal, which overtook the L.A. club scene at the same time, by issuing the first album by Mötley Crüe, Poison, and others. The glam-poppy Lizzy Borden was also ran in the hair metal sweepstakes, but its debut album, 1985's Love You to Pieces, holds up better than many other documents from the era. The packaging, complete with faux-goth band logo and the requisite hot big-haired chick in lingerie, is crushingly obvious, and the entire album flirts with cliché. Lizzy Borden himself — who like Alice Cooper adopted the band's name as his own — sounds uncannily like Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson most of the time, and songs like "Council for the Cauldron" and "Rod of Iron" sound like Spinal Tap jokes. Yet there's an appealing freshness to this album despite the clichés. Drummer Joey Scott Harges and bassist Mike Davis play with the whiplash pacing of a hardcore punk band, and there's a tongue-in-cheek quality to the album that puts it over during all but the most inane passages. By the end of the band's career, Lizzy Borden would be indistinguishable from the dozens of other poodle-haired glam-metal bands on the Sunset Strip, but Love You to Pieces isn't half bad.

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

In the wake of Mötley Crüe's meteoric rise to superstardom in 1983 on the strength of their now classic album Shout at the Devil, a countless amount of other similarly styled theatrical metal bands cropped up in the Los Angeles heavy metal community, including Lizzy Borden. Basically an '80s update of Alice Cooper (with some Iron Maiden-esque riffs mixed into the melting pot), the group built a substantial regional following on the West Coast with an over-the-top stageshow, but failed to break through...
