learned their chops playing live in the club circuit around
their hometown with SKID ROW and KIX, before getting
signed by Mechanic/MCA for their self-titled debut album
in 1990, which spawned the Billboard Hits & #1 MTV
videos Give It To Me Good , One in a Million and
Surrender . The album would go on to achieve gold
The band toured nationally during 1990-91 to sold out
arena crowds opening for POISON, SCORPIONS and
WARRANT. TRIXTER's second album, Hear! was
released in October 1992 and they toured in support of
KISS. Unfortunately, the change of musical climate made
it impossible for the band to keep going, so after the
release of an independent covers album in 1995, the
band called it quits.
TRIXTER announced the reunion of the original lineup in
2007. Since then the band has played several shows,
including a successful appearance at the Rocklahoma
Festival in 2008. The new album entitled "New Audio
Machine" is a classic Melodic Hard Rock album. All the
things people loved about TRIXTER before are here...
great songs, big guitar riffs, catchy vocals and a huge
bottom end. Total big rock production!!!

The tracks basically fall into two categories, rockers and mid-tempo ballads. There are no slow songs here, nor are there any screeching metal tracks. Trixter sticks to their guns, and delivers in fine form, with a sound reminiscent of their earlier work which is comparable to Bon Jovi, Adrenalize-era Def Leppard, and some influence of AC/DC and even 70's classic rock sprinkled in. The album has no bad tracks, every song is good. Some are standouts, such as rockers "Dirty Love" and "Machine" and ballads "Live For the Day" and "Drag Me Down," which is the album opener, starting out with an acoustic jam and eventually building up to a rocking chorus.
In closing, this revival of "hair" metal is refreshing, as is the hard rock and metal explosion that is currently going on in many European countries (foreign bands of this nature are coming out of the woodwork almost daily it seems - if this is your style, give Crazy Lixx, Reckless Love, and Crashdiet a spin). It is the best of both words, really, to see the original hair bands reunite and put out very good albums, and to also have young bands exploring this style again.Read more ›
Kudos to Frontiers Records for yet another winner. What a stunning and unexpected return from a long lost band!
Keep it up!
I am blown away by this album. There are clear influences (to me) from Def Leppard, Van Halen, AC/DC, and many others, but not in the least bit rip offs of these groups. This is an original album, that at some times is hard and sleezy, and other times poppy and fun. There is no shame in either. The simple fact is that the performances by each member carries their share of the load, but the songs are much more than just the sum of all of the parts. They are good songs, period.
Check that, they are all very good songs, and when you can make an album full of very good songs (and a few are great), that is 5 stars. The production is top notch. I listen to this album more than "A Different Kind of Truth" at this time, which is crazy since I am a VH fanatic, and absolutely love that album. I simply love the range of Pete's voice and Steve's guitar, and the rhythm section of Gus and PJ is solid and dynamic.

There are a few pretty good songs on here, and there are a few that aren't so good. Similar, in that sense, to their debut album. Read morePublished 12 months ago by JimmyBoy
