Lizzy Borden – Death Takes A Holiday

Lizzy Borden, named after the notorious New England woman, Lizzie Borden, who was tried and acquitted for killing her father and stepmother, has always been a tough band to categorize. There’s no denying that they are a shock-rock band heavy on theatrics, but at the same time they’re an epic glam metal band with elements of power metal. In the end, it’s a kick-ass recipe for some wicked tunes and a great stage show. Seriously, how does horror, sex, and metal not make for a memorable event?

Lizzy Borden – “Psychopath”

As stated, Lizzy Borden is a highly theatrical band that features scripted and simulated death, blood, sexy dancers, axes, costumes, vampirism, and much more. Yes, the band has shifted its look from horror glam to goth, but that doesn’t categorize them as poseurs. So, all of you uneducated trolls out there posting comments about Lizzy Borden being fake or mocking how they’re glam with a death metal look, do your research before commenting (you won’t look so stupid if you do). It’s baffling that the generation making these shitty comments about something they don’t understand grew up with a world of information at their fingertips and can’t or refuse to use it. Morons. Two minutes of Internet research would inform you that Lizzy Borden established themselves long ago as a band based on their look (this is if we ignore the excellent songwriting, playing, and singing), and as such they are entitled to change it up how and when they see fit.
