Madam X live @ Sweden Rock Festival 07-06-14
After taking most of the world by storm with their debut album
“ We reserve the Right” and making a name as a wild and crazy
live band, Madam X has reunited in 2014.
I was on location at Sweden Rock Festival to witness if all it all
were true that we had heard about the band. This is the original
line up -
Roxy Petrucci - Drums
Maxine Petrucci - Guitar
Chris “ Godzilla” Doliber - Bass guitar
Bret Kaiser - Vocals
The band have given us rather high hopes with the brand new
“ Another 80´s rock song” I caught the sound check and I wasn´t
Now the big question was, would the band be able to awake a hung
over festival crowd at 12.15 on a Saturday?
As the band entered the stage the crowd was rather exited, well
the ones in the pit were anyway. And as “Come on, Come all”
echoed over the fields of Norje it was quit obvious that this was
going to be something special. The band is very tight and sounds
And they are just as crazy as we were told in the 80´s. The many
years has not done much to the band. Bret fires up the crowd with
this energy, Roxy and Maxine shows just how excellent musicians
But just like it was in the 80´s it´s Godzilla that steals the show.
The man is a maniac! He bangs his bass with his hands and head
to the audience amusement. By now all of the about 2000 people
in front of the stage is singing along and waving their fists and
If I don´t remember too badly I think 3 bass guitars had to put
their life to an end just for us.
And all this to the songs given to us by the band on their debut.
And I actually think the band was rather surprise when they
played “High in High school”, even if Bret said before they
started that they know it was a big hit in Sweden, I don´t think
they expected us to sing the chorus louder then the band long
before the time they had a singalong in mind!
And the new single? Well we learned quickly.
To sum things up I think I can say as much as, Sweden Rock
loves Madam X !
And I think they liked us as well.
