Harder Sleaze Bands (Erotic Suicide, Crashdiet, etc)


Recommended Posts

Looking for some help here -

Looking for new bands that fall in the harder edged sleaze category - things that would fall into the same category of Erotic Suicide, Crazy Lixx, Crashdiet, Slam Alley, old Hardcore Superstar, the first Spread Eagle CD , and I'd even toss the first Faster Pussycat CD in there

Erotic Suicide = Perseverance is the ultimate CD in my  eyes - so the closer to that, the better!

Internet searches just lead me to lists with things like Cinderella (not Sleeze), Alleycat Scratch (not hard). and more glammy type  bands

I'm afraid that I have been looking and listening for so long that there might be nothing new to discover!  Please prove me wrong,.

Nice topic and I for 1 appreciate someone name dropping that 1st Spread Eagle album as that is 1 muther of a record from start to finish and easily in my top 5.


There are plenty of bands in that vein and I am rather certain folks are going to comment a plenty.


Immediately thought of this band, which I am sure you must be familiar with:


A few other lesser known bands that make my nipples rock hard that should fit the bill:


Could go on forever, better pause for a few and let some songs sink in. Happy youtubing...

Why stop? These are some great suggestions 

I love Lipz, Speed Stroke, and Cruel Intentions

There are others here on my playlist that I need to revisit

I remember Sea Hags as not being as hard edged as the others , but maybe it’s time to give them another listen 

Thanks got the suggestions!

This is one of my favorite covers of all time - it’s a fun take on the original

Aussie's own Candy Harlots, Snake Bite Whisky

Candy Harlots are awesome. I even have their Fourplay EP that I think came free with that magazine Hot Metal that I used to read religiously in the early 90s.

Candy Harlots were awesome  with both singers, the EP cassette came with " Hot Metal ".  The digi pack of the album of the album is heavily wanted.

Ron Barrett was the first singer

Those are all fine selections. Wish the Murderdolls would have done more, but at least we still have Wednesday 13...

And yes Lipz is a fave of mine as well.



Always been a big fan of Murderdolls and W13.. the Transylvania 90210 album absolutely rips.

Some great suggestions in here ..

Bands I know and love (Lipz, Speed Stroke, Cruel Intentions)

Bands I know but never really gave a shot (Sister, Murderdolls, Candy Harlots)

Bands I can’t find anywhere (Snow, Sister Scream, Pyn Siren)

Please keep them coming!

Love me some heavier sleaze like Spread Eagle but find this genre can be very hit or miss... Like Hardcore Superstar.

What about the band Confess?

    • From Escape Music: KEYS has just completed their second album, “The Grand Seduction”.   This all-keyboard band is the brainchild of singer Jake E (Cyhra, Amaranthe and others) and keyboardist Mark Mangold (Touch, Drive, She Said, Michael Bolton, Cher, Paul Rogers and others) with Emanuel Bagge (Sweden’s Got Talent Finalist) on additional vocals and keys, Irwan Fabrien (noted keyboard guitar sound designer) with help of drum gurus Alex Landenburg (Kamelot, Cyhra and others).   Featuring live performances with three keyboardists and a huge battery of keyboards, this ambitious band brings keyboard and instrumental prowess to new heights while playing songs that run the gamut from scathing progressive melodic forays to catchy and melodic rock anthems …and Jake’s award-winning voice (Burrn Vocalist of the year 2020).   Previous KEYS album also featured guest keyboard additions by Charlie Calv of Angel and others.   Though songs are first and foremost, this band shows the versatility of keyboards in this day and age.  These artfully crafted songs are ripe with scathing synth, organ and “guitar” pyrotechnics, dazzling time signatures and drumming, bombastic choruses and “guitar” riffs (played on keyboards with the now available plug in’s that perfectly emulate guitars).  As Mark and Jake are first and foremost award winning songwriters, they never lose sight of the composition and melodies, though couched in the very signature and hard to pigeon hole sound (isn’t that the whole point?) of this band and Jake's 4 octave vocal range.   Release Date: 19th July 2024 CD Catalogue No: ESM389   CD Track List: 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 9:02 2. ALL I NEED  6:49 3. SHINING SAILS  5:51 4. SWITCHBLADE  6:02 5. VORTEX   4:06 6. SKIN AND BONES  6:42 7. TURN TO DUST    4:42 8. CRAZY TOWN   7:43 9. THOUGHT WE HAD FOREVER  6:04 10. THE WORLD IS OURS (Curse the Lies)   4:02   Vinyl Track List: Side A 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 6:47 2. ALL I NEED 6:49 3. SHINING SAILS 5:51 4. VORTEX 4:06   Side B 1. SWITCHBLADE 6:02 2. SKIN AND BONES 6:42 3. TURN TO DUST 4:42 4. CRAZY TOWN 7:43   PRODUCED BY MARK MANGOLD AND JAKE E MIXED BY MARK MANGOLD MASTERED BY MAOR APPELBAUM  
    • Lyric video for the new song:    
    • No replies in this thread, really? These guys deserves your recognition, absolutely quality stuff!    
    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.
