Slizard release video for their cover of Scorpions’ ballad “Still Loving You”
Los Angeles, California, USA based rockers Slizard consisting of Liz Fawcett (lead vocals, piano), Pat “Buzz” Belrose (guitars, bass) and Todd “Toad” Resmen (drums, video editing) have released a video for their cover of the Scorpions‘ ballad “Still Loving You” which first appeared on the album Love At First Sting (1984).
Slizard‘s press release indicates (with slight edits):
“Los Angeles hard rockers Slizard have released a music video for their cover version of the Scorpions “Still Loving You.” The music video was edited by Slizard percussionist Todd “Toad” Resmen, and features lead vocalist Liz Fawcett on piano. The track was produced by Chris Wood.
Slizard guitarist Pat “Buzz” Belrose shares his comments on the video: “Nosferatu strikes again with an irresistible attraction felt by his victims. Slizard pay our profound gratitude to the Scorpions for such a brilliant and beautiful song, and to ‘The Noss’ for his masterful performance of Dracula, or shall we say Nosferatu.”
Slizard recently signed a worldwide deal with Mega Metal Records, a sublabel of Canadian label Maple Metal, to release their self-titled debut album on May 28th. However, the Scorpions cover track will not be included in the release of their debut album. Two album teasers from their debut album have already been released.
The band was formed in 2019, and features L.A. singer Liz Fawcett on vocals, Pat “Buzz” Belrose on guitars, bass and vocals, and Todd “Toad” Resmen on drums. Singing sensation Liz Fawcett has been described by a few L.A. music industry reps as a “badass” singer with an instantly recognizable voice. Pat “Buzz” Belrose has previously played guitar for LA bands Spoiled Rotten, and World Jungle who were popular acts, especially on the local L.A. scene in the 90’s, but has also recorded two albums with Canadian metal band Jade in the mid-80’s. Buzz currently also has his own band appropriately named Buzz Za.
Slizard‘s album cover art is designed by well-known Finnish artist Jan Yrlund of Darkgrove Studios in Tampere, Florida. Slizard is produced and mixed by Chris Wood, a three-time Grammy Award nominated L.A. producer and mix engineer. Chris Wood has worked with a variety of artists in multiple music genres, but in the rock world most notably with Slash, Lenny Kravitz, and ex-Dio and current Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell. The album is mastered by Chris Crerar at Metalworks Studios (Guns N’ Roses, Rush, Triumph) in Toronto, Canada. Slizard have written over 50 songs for this project.”
