Lady Victoria ROCKS!

California's LADY VICTORIA has somehow managed to stay on my back burner for quite a while. I've been meaning to write about these guys for a long time, but as backed up as I am with my posts, it has taken longer than I would have liked.


Despite not having a name that screams thrash metal, I can assure you that Lady Victoria punctures through their feminine moniker with high doses of pounding metal.

Listening to their batch of available songs, I was hyped to hear so many full-on killer RIFFS that actually pack a punch. The flavor of their music brings to mind old Anthrax and Kill 'Em All-era Metallica without fully emulating either band.

The lyrics at times go a bit tongue-in-cheek, but such things never been a problem with me. Vocalist Jared Stainbrook utilizes a killer set of metal pipes to spit those lyrics out, leaning toward the Hetfieldian side of vocal delivery.

Drummer Justin Lomiglio is a freaking monster on the kit, raging with tight and precise technique. The combination of the hard-hitting guitars with Lomiglio's arm and leg work make for dynamic bliss, well-executed and heavy as hell.

Check out the goods below and if you like what Lady Victoria has to offer, keep tabs on them here and here.

  1. I'd probably never give LV a listen if I saw them on emusic or amazon, or where ever. But since you ahve them posted Chicken, I of course gave them a listen. I can hear the Kill em all influence through all the songs. Killer stuff!!!
