White Widdow

Recommended Posts

Someone corrected my thread regarding Chris Laney... apparently he's not producing, but he is mixing/mastering

Yeah, still good enough for me, though. As long as the guy/s who "produced" The Deadthings steer clear I'll be happy. ;)

Yep, and further good news is that it appears as though the 3 tracks from that EP will all be re-recorded and given the Chris Laney treatment for the full-length CD. Awesome news, as I love those tunes.

Being called Andy for the last 20+ years I guess peeps will often think it's short for Andrew... :)

White Widdow WHITE WIDDOW DEBUT ALBUM RELEASED OCT.29th ON AOR HEAVEN RECORDS

 

With their debut Self Titled album, the full vision of White Widdow has become a reality. With absolutely no concerns about modern rock trends the band has followed their hearts and proudly wear their 80's influences on their sleeves . Mixed and Mastered by Martin Kronlun...d (Overland, Joe Lynn Turner, Hammerfall, Bangalore Choir) at JM Studios in Sweden, White Widdow have put together an album full of Melodic Rock and AOR anthems filled with swirling keyboards, blistering guitar playing and big choruses full of hooks, the way they believe rock music should.

I'll be all over this one when it comes out. 3 of the best samples I've heard in a few months, easily the most exciting samples of an upcoming release since H.E.A.T. I hope it's affordable and easy to find.

Just how great are the 3 White Widdow tunes on melodicrock.com :)

This is going to be one of the albums of 2010 imho, I dont think there's any current band from Australia thats anywhere near as exciting.

Have been listening to the full album promo last couple of days, and only thing I can say is: OUTSTANDING. I absolutely love this album, ten incredibly strong tracks, "Broken Hearts Won't Last Forever" is simply a stunning uptempo AOR track, "We've Got The Wings" is keyboard laden melodic rock bliss, and "Cross To Bare" has become one of my favorite melodic hard rock songs...ever...in the space of two days. I lapped up "Mr. Scary: The World Can Wait" earlier this year like a starving alleycat, and it's nothing short of sensational to be treated to another Aussie gem within the same year. Oh, did I mention "Don't Fail Me Now" might be the best mid-tempo ballad this side of 1989. Just a fantastic song accentuated by a huge chorus. Many might not be as blown away, but I'd be real surprised if most on this site don't rank this right up there with H.E.A.T., Work Of Art, W.E.T.. Who knows, maybe my lust for this album will calm over time, but right now I've reserved a spot on the shelf right next to "Strangeways: Walk In The Fire" for my soon to be purchased copy of this CD. Buy or die :headbanger:

The band are gonna love reading this review! Sadly someone has uploaded the entire promo online. I suppose some positive in that are that it'll now be accessible to a whole lot more peeps that dont believe in buying cds & I guess the appreciative fans will go on to buy the cds :)

 

Right now the album's at an 9.5 out 10 for me :):beerbang:

Yeah, I saw this had hit the online world over the weekend. As soon as I saw it I went on the hunt to pre-order it... couldn't find it anywhere yet, but rest assured I'll be on this asap. SO excited about this one.

 

Just from an Aussie perspective, even though these guys are Aussie I'm guessing that because it's through AOR Heaven there won't be a cheaper postaged Aussie version? Also, are the Aussie gigs with Ted Poley the official launch dates for the CD here? If so, that's marked in my calendar so I might just pick up my copy then. :)

I think there is an album launch about 5th November at 'Back In the Day'. Don't quote me on that though... that's just off the top of my head. Hopefully the album will be available thru the band so aussie don't have to import it.

Agreed. I raped their myspace site last night looking for a place to pre-order but as noted, couldn't see one yet. Would love to score local shipping rates on this one. :)

Wow - here's my 2 cents. I met Jules at Rocklahoma 2008. Extremely cool dude and we got on really well. I am very happy he's doing the 80s AOR thing and it's always very difficult for me to say anything negative but after checking out the tunes I am really surprised at the excitement surrounding this band. Jules just isn't really THAT good of a singer. He's ok but certainly no Kip Winger , Jeff Scott Soto or Robert Mason. And the songs are good but not outstanding. I don't know , I wasn't as thrilled as the rest of you are about this project. Kudos for keeping it AOR but now I know how excited y'all get about above average AOR albums , I guess it's time to record one for myself - LOL. Don't take this as negative , I just don't see or hear the big thrill. Have you not listened to the live footage they have on youtube? ummm...yeh.

 

Anyhoo , just my 2 cents. Good stuff but not essential IMO.

Hopefully you'll change your opinion once you hear the finnished product Sam :):beerbang:
