Overview of alternative hard rock band Lazarus X
History of Lazarus X - In the early nineties the artist Dave L. lived for the guitar. He was in a band that had an upcoming tour starting in Austin in a few weeks. Life was good. Then in an moment of youthful impetuousness, an incident he refers to as “the car surfing incident” he climbed on the hood of a friends car as the friend sped down a dark road at a reckless 60 mph. Bad idea. With the squeal of brakes and an explosion of pain down his left side, in an instant a promising career was over. Or so the doctors said anyway.

It is an album of determined honest hard rock combined with haunting and soulful melodies which has struck a chord with many fans. Lazarus X the 7-string guitarist and vocalist for PQA is the driving force behind this new band and fans will find that the music has only gotten better.
