"… a rather interesting Italian band. They regenerate past influences and old favourites with a modern sound and greater energy … “Freaks Of Society” is an album for sleazy and street rockers and it should not be missing from any personal record collection."

"53 minutes may seem rather long-lived when you listen to a disc with little content, but when it comes to variety and cool ideas the time goes away as water goes out of hand."

"… a band that has been able to dare, while maintaining firm his musical stylistic coordinates well anchored to those who are its sacred monsters and muses, such as Poison, Mötley Crüe, Skid Row and company … an honest album, well played … and very well produced."
8,5 / 10
"ROXIN' PALACE already were a great example of Hard Rock made in Italy, but with "Freaks Of Society" the band make a leap forward and prove to the public that not only embrace the perfection that setting 80s Sleaze, but also being now at a level of music managing to pack something that seems to come out in the golden age, while injecting a modern personality overdose certainly identification."

"'Freaks Of Society' is in my opinion the result of the passion of four musicians who, aggressive and compact, wrote this tribute to the eighties … Harley Davidson and leather jackets. Production is almost perfect."

"… sleazy Hard Rock … sources of inspiration include Guns N 'Roses, Mötley Crüe, Skid Row, L.A. Guns, Crash Diet and Hardcore Superstar … very guitar driven … there are several good guitar riffs on the album."
(Calles Rock Corner)
"Lovers of Mötley Crüe, Ratt, Extreme, Crazy Lixx, Nasty Nuns, Rebel Star and Wildheart will embrace also ROXIN' PALACE … the sleaze scene is richer of a top band."
"… just DYNAMITE! Thanks to influences that run the gamut from The Beatles to Megadeth(!), Italy's ROXIN' PALACE is able to offer a lot more bang for your hard earned buck … when you stack this up-and-coming quartet next to your average, everyday Sleaze Rock/Hair Metal/Glam Metal revival band you'll quickly notice just how much these other influences help out when it comes to an album's overall listening experience … sure enough, because of the way in which "Freaks Of Society" was written, performed, and produced it does have the same lively feel of vintage band's like Guns N' Roses, Skid Row, Dangerous Toys, Ratt, Kik Tracee, Faster Pussycat, and Shotgun Messiah … there's nothing wrong with that picture. Not at all … actually, that's a big part of why this album is as fun as it is! For those who loved the mid-eighties to early-nineties Hard Rock and/or Hair Metal/Glam Metal scene this disc should be a real hit!"
(Heavy Metal Time Machine)
"If you around bands like The Road Vikings, Axe Crazy, Snakewine, Vayl, Bon Jovi, J.D Overdrive; you have to give your time to ROXIN' PALACE if you want to circle yourself with only best albums."
"This record of ROXIN' PALACE is one of the greatest purism that can exist. In such a way that there is no other word to classify the album, other than "Rock"! Everything works around a typical lineage of Classic Hard Rock, which we have heard so often emulated these days. However, there are not many bands that sound so natural in these fields, where the guitar reigns. ROXIN' PALACE are able to gather as many elements as there may be in the glorious wreckage of the real sound of leather coats, harley's and long hair … suitable for guitar aficionados of the 80s, a powerful work with true musics that live beyond the copy of a musical style or specific band."
"… someone who loves good old Hard Rock, will understand immediately that what we hear is what should be heard in each album of the genre!!! Distortion, consecutive solo, powerful vocals and an unstoppable melody!"
"ROXIN' PALACE creates fresh Rock ‘n’ Roll with existing ingredients, infusing them with their own adventure which 'Freaks Of Society' proves its highly enjoyable."
(The RingMaster Review)
"ROXIN’ PALACE shows everything they learned with Kiss, Mötley Crüe, Twisted Sister, Skid Row, Dr. Sin, and Warrant with a dash of 1990’s Punk Rock … it’s the masterpiece of this century."
"… A little savage and aggressive, capturing the glamorous sensation of the 1980s … explosive rhythm section … powerful … with an addictive melody attachment …"
(Heavy Metal Spread)
Sleaze Hard Rock
Freaks Of Society
Born under the monicker Modern Middle Ages these casual bunch of SLEAZE HARD ROCK enthusiasts eventually became ROXIN' PALACE and was founded in 2011 by Crown, guitar player in the bands Revoltons and Hell, ex drummer of Elvenking.
For rhythm guitar duties Crown recruited his friend Slaver. Later they completed their blowing rhythm section with bass maniac Garret, who had many years of experience mainly in Hard Rock cover bands, and the young talented singer Axel, completing the line-up in March 2012.
ROXIN' PALACE began recording the debut right away at the Artesonika Studios, putting together 10 tracks.
Later the group started its live activity sharing stages with acts such as Phantom X (USA), Salamandra (Czech Rep) and Jettblack (UK).

To promote the debut release, ROXIN' PALACE has been busy again, on an intense live activity, culminate with new shows in Czech Republic and the presence at prestigious festival Metal Days (Slovenia) together with acts such Obituary, Satyricon, Manilla Road.
During the fall of 2014, ROXIN' PALACE faced an important change replacing singer Axel, guitarist Slaver and bass player Garret with new members: Al (vocals) and Gian (bass).
The new line-up wrote songs for a second album and the new release "Freaks Of Society" has been released in October 2016 via established record company Sleaszy Rider Records.

Guns, Bullet Boys, Roxx Gang, Ratt, Faster Pussycat, Vain, Bang Tango, Shotgun Messiah were a real big thing!
