Album Review

The last forgotten gem of the 80s for this week is MADDAX. Formed in Florida in 1986 by guitarists Ralph Tullo and David Coleman with bassist / vocalist Andi Austin and drummer Tomi Stotler. One year later MADDAX entered the Natural Sound Studios in Virginia to record a four-song demo. After lots of gigs and changes in the line-up MADDAX released their debut ‘Deadly Game’ from 1995-1996. MADDAX made quite some waves on their local live circuit at the time and opened for acclaimed acts like: MANOWAR, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, ACCEPT, QUIET RIOT, RATT and many others. To many fans distress ‘Deadly Game’ was the first and last LP to date. This remaster / re-issue features the material of the original cassette but with three bonus tracks and an eight-page booklet with lyrics and photos. What I like most about these guys is Eric Nutter’s voice as it was quite distinctive and classic in range and phrasing. Sound-wise MADDAX was old-school Heavy Rock bordering on Metal, if you dig bands like SKIDROW and ARMORED SAINT this could be what you need
