From: M. Allen Date: November 1, 2001 at 8:48
It is utterly impossible to pack any more angry, pissed-off attitude onto a melodic metal album than SLEDGEHAMMER LEDGE, a heavy-edged power-rock band that makes Skid Row looks like wusses. Vocalist Chris Childs has a killer set of lungs, spitting & screaming the lyrics with a force that is rarely seen in the melodic metal genre. The big guitars and gang backing vocals complete the picture. Any fan of ultra-aggressive melodic-sleaze metal needs to give this puppy a spin.

From: clint Date: February 17, 2002 at 16:52
I've met these guys and seen them play, and I also have thier demo when they were legs up. I think this band kicks a lot of ass.

From: TIM Date: February 24, 2002 at 16:33
Much harder than the average "Sleaze" band. They are really sleazy metal. I agree with both of these guys- Sledgehammer Ledge rocks!

From: TIM Date: May 1, 2002 at 22:30
M. Allen, have you ever listened to Skitzotik? If you like these guys, you may appreciate their work.

From: mikey allen Date: August 27, 2002 at 17:06
remember legs up? cool band. lots of cool shows i played with this band

From: David Date: August 27, 2002 at 19:55
Mikey Allen, did Legs Up ever release a cd?

From: nitrodoll Date: August 28, 2002 at 2:36
i only have a few songs and from what i've heard this cd is very good..i do like the song "psycho city" alot especially the lyrical content..,also 'crazy mary' is a cool tune... what was the name of the recordlabel that released this album?

From: Date: September 11, 2002 at 11:15
Fuckin ROCKS

From: Date: April 2, 2003 at 5:23
this cd isn't bad but they were a lot better when they were called legs up. and I don't think legs up has a cd out. I bought a legs up cd on ebay and it was burned and had 2002 as the date on the back. If someone knows or hears of any legs up orginal cds let me know

From: Blackie L. Date: April 8, 2003 at 18:55
An up-and-comer in the early 90's L.A. metal and rock scene. Originally known as Legs Up, but as the times changed with the coming of Nirvana and alternative, the sleaze metal outfit pursued a heavier more traditional musical direction as SledgeHammer Ledge. The sound is in the vein of W.A.S.P.'s first release as evidenced by Childs' possessed cry of "Wake The Dead for Me!". Besides the first track, On and On, and It Ain't Pretty, along with Salute The Trash seem to be the strongest material.

From: Blackie L. Date: April 8, 2003 at 19:11
Lock Your Door is leftover from Legs era and is a satisfying rememberance of their street rock roots. Unfortunaly, the slower more ballad-type songs such as No Heart At All and Billy just seem strange and don't fit in as well with the better written songs. The remaining few are filler material that carry the sound but just not enough personality to them. Overall, a very interesting and enjoyable cd. One can only wonder where the band could have gone if not for the mid 90's musical climate.

From: SPOTLIGHT Date: May 31, 2003 at 16:59
Haven't heard this album. But, the LEGS UP demo was freakin' killer. I've still got that, packed away to be passed on to the next generation. Wouldn't mind getting that one on CD so I can enjoy it once again. Yeah...whatever happened to these guys?? (

From: TIM Date: May 31, 2003 at 20:14
You're in luck- there are 2 copies on Ebay right now.

From: The Dead Date: August 4, 2003 at 21:39
Sounds Like WASP.

From: Clint ( again ) Date: November 16, 2003 at 4:28
Just got sledge hammer ledge only cd, and I thought it was produced very nice, and wish they had more. I sitll have legs up demo, a sledge hammer ledge demo on cd.

From: tomcat Date: December 27, 2003 at 21:58
"salute the trash" is one hell of a great song...this entire cd did remind me of skid row's 'slave to the grind' and also 'shake the faith;america the violent'. buy it if you find it

From: metalhead Date: February 8, 2004 at 21:58
hello again i met these guys at the club in milwaukee at the time i also have there legs up cassete a great bunch of guys but i remember they were loud as fuck i mean loud i also have them on video great cd thanks bob

From: Dean Date: April 2, 2004 at 1:05
Anyone looking for this can find it at CD Baby for $10.00. Awesome disc in the vein of early WASP.

From: B.Grimm Date: October 12, 2004 at 21:47
Just got this from cd baby and it was worth every penny. Made me think of real early Blackie and that is a compliment coming from one who owns everything that says W.A.S.P. I'd love to hear their earlier stuff as Legs Up. Does anyone know where I can acquire a copy of their demo works? Thanks.

From: J.P. Date: November 11, 2004 at 1:11
Hey everybody thanks for the support and the likes and dislikes of the band (can't please everyone) we did what we wanted, we lived how we wanted and had a BLAST. We laughed, fought, struggled, starved, and played like no tomorrow. I still live that way (yes we're all still alive, many said we would die before 28). Legs UP/Sledgehammer Ledge was a great time. I'm working on releasing early Legs Up stuff, some of the most raw, pissed off, fuck off, no tomorrow rock-n-roll. Rock On... J.P. (bassis

From: David Date: November 11, 2004 at 2:30
J.P., could you please leave your email?? I would love have a chat. Thanks. David.

From: Greg Date: November 17, 2004 at 20:49
This is one band either as Legs Up or Sledgehammer Ledge that should have been signed to a major label. Killer sound, attitude and image. Met them at the Akron Agora at a Lillian Axe show and they were cool as hell to boot. To this day, I listen to "Wake The Dead" on my headphones at the gym. J.P., please leave your contact info, would love to get a CD of the Legs Up stuff instead of my homemade CDr from the cassettes

From: J.P. Date: January 15, 2005 at 23:47

From: David Date: January 16, 2005 at 1:14
J.P., I'm sure that the Leg's Up disc will be a hit!! I've heard nothing but very positive feedback on the album. Can't wait for its release!! When you know a release date can you tell us?? Thanks. David.

From: Dead Planet Date: July 28, 2006 at 17:57
After all the positive comments above, I decided to pick this cd up last year. I must admit to being completely underwhelmed. It's not terrible, just very ordinary, after a couple of listens it has been turned into a dust magnet....

From: IronSaviour Date: November 7, 2006 at 19:09
I totally agree with M. Allen. They're like Skid Row meets Skitzotic but with more of an attitude. I can't imagine anyone more pissed off than Bach until you hear childs and the track "salute the trash" is one awesome tune.

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: August 28, 2007 at 2:08
GOOD CD angry SLEAZY "TRASH R'n'R" UNDERGOUND METAL !_80/100 THE VOICE is kind of early BLACKIE LAWLESS meet DR MASTERMIND aka M.Mc COURT ! the whole band remind me of JET BLACK and their 1994 cd produced by PAUL SHORTINO but even better ! The comparison with SKITZOTIK is right but they had a more metallic EDGE ! /

From: Metal T Date: January 14, 2008 at 10:06
Killer Disc! Very heavy with alot of edge and a ton of attitude.If you like early-W.A.S.P. you'll dig this badboy.Definitely more "metal" than most sleaze/glam bands.Highly f'n recommended.----

From: BIG-TIME Date: May 9, 2008 at 18:37
THIS IS CRAP!!! yet another crap CD...people are gonna start getting pissed-off with me saying alot of CD's are bad and stuff. But I can't help it the guy CANNOT SING! YES HE CANNOT SING he screams and wail's like a pig, they sound like Skid Row no way S/B can damn well sing. COME ON PEOPLE this is bad WTF do you guys listen to coz I just can't listen to this poo "killer disc" where? this is just pissed off rock, who cares if there pissed off I don't! I want REAL kick ass rock. I want to be blown away by a CD I can't even listen to the whole CD it's that bad any way soz to piss on you or if I offend you but i'm glad I only paid $15 it's not worth more than $2...KEEP ROCKIN ALL!!!

From: Metal T Date: May 27, 2008 at 21:08
Nah.....killer disc all the way.This album is like a louisville slugger to the balls that feels....."oh so good" ! "Lock your door,Lock your door hide your daughters,Lock your backdoor,get the gun run for cover". --

From: rallen399 Date: December 4, 2010 at 7:25
