Profile “S.E.X. Department” is a Sleaze metal band from Italy. Their self title debut album is put together solely by multi instrumentalist Kelly Madness who according to credits contributes lead vocals, backing vocals, guitars, bass and drums on this 2007 release.

To his credit the end result on “Sex department” is by all means a professional offering and does not suffer by the lack of a full band. What differentiates `Sex department’ from the typical modern sleaze band is the fact that Kelly goes beyond the sleaze taboos and stereotypes; hence do not be surprised when you find mid tempo (!) sleaze tracks (3 to be exact!) plus fantasy lyrical themes are commonly used here, best example the furious “Revenge of Vampires” (the title says it all). Also you get a soft sleaze anthem in “Rock n Roll never dies”.

Although Kelly is, as mentioned previously, a competent multi instrumentalist it becomes obvious that his forte is the guitar, coming up with thick riffs and shredding solos at impressive speed (for this genre).So one should expect that the emphasis of “Sex…” is on the vocals and guitar while not as much on the rhythm section. A very interesting proposition for fans of Sleaze metal, personal favourites include “Rock `n roll never dies”, “Sir yes Sir” and “Revenge of vampires” which I believe is indicative of the guy’s abilities.
