Junkyard Lipstick / Press

““the spawning of the mosh pit whilst they were on stage was an emphatic stamp of approval, vindication for what these four ferocious females continue to pour into their music"”

Bryan O Pines - Zone Radio

““…what I enjoy a hell of a lot about them is seeing the hard work that they put behind the scenes to make their performances as good as the previous or next performance they had or are going to reflect on stage…Junkyard Lipstick sure knows how to please the music pallet.””

Ryno de Lange, - Event Horizons Music Event Management - Niva Magazine

““I always find their sets to be a lot of fun to watch. The band is sounding tighter than ever, and seems to be moving towards a more thrash-oriented sound. More thrash metal is never a bad thing.””

Seawolf - Metal4Africa

““…it seemed that they have refined their sound and made it their own. These girls really do have balls, keeping the crowd in awe as an all-girl band would do.””

JP Monroe - Cape Town Music Scene

““Full blown theatrics combined with excellent musicians makes you sit up and take notice.””

Ezelle Louw - SA Music Scene

““Given the band’s defiance of the typical genre boxes, this album meanders deliberately through genres – a reflection of the diverse tastes of each member of the band, ranging from Metalcore through Death Metal and into Punk Rock and Thrash Metal, with a sprinkling of Classic Rock thrown in for good measure This album is frenetic, balls-to-the-wall from start to finish. …Hellbent is therefore, in my opinion, the introduction of Junkyard Lipstick to the world. I expect this not to be the last. This band’s driven by the desire to make music, and relentless in their pursuit of that goal. Don’t let their gender lull you into a false sense of security though, Junkyard Lipstick have got balls!””

Bryan O Pines - Zone Radio

““Drummer Villain does an exceptional job on the album, her drumming being a powerful standout as well as guitarists Tazz-O and Louise “Gore” Gorman who put a lot of skill into their tight blazing licks. Bassist Jacky Roodt really makes her presence felt with the rumbling and fluid playing throughout the album. JUNKYARD LIPSTICK has made an intense and well-played debut album that should get people thinking about metal bands from South Africa as more than a novelty, but as real contenders to be reckoned with.” Rick Ecker, Altered Frequencies”

Rick Ecker - Altered Frequencies

““Fast pace is balanced by slower interludes throughout the album, which kept me engaged. Hellbent is both a reminder of grim realities and a feel-good album to put on when you need cheering up. Overall, the production quality is very good, and I believe that the band has set themselves a high standard to follow on subsequent releases.””

Seawolf - Metal4africa.com

““Junkyard succeed in keeping the same flow and feeling to the album, which is what kept my ears glued to the speakers. … they will always be in your face, loud and proud, stuck to their roots with their knife jabbed into the back of the corporate rock” Ryno de Lange, FanBase Music Magazine”
