Review:

Retro-rock with a 90s feel... these guys wear their influences right out in the open. Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Deep Purple, Golden Earring, Motley Crue, Marc Bolan and more. Toxic Shame's original songs with searing guitar work and soaring Freddie Mercury-inspired vocals will appeal to a wide rock audience.

'Sitting' needs to be played in front of 50 000 bic-waving fans - its that kind of song. This 6-minute plus track builds slowly into an epic stadium crowd pleaser. The chorus of "I'm tired and take me home" would make an ideal show closer. This is a song that I could quite easily imagine Bon Jovi, the Scorpions or Aerosmith singing... lets hope it doesn't stay a "hidden gem" for much longer.
