Man, that's a long way off their glory days, that's for sure. And Whitecross without Scott Wenzel just doesn't sound like Whitecross. I'll give 'em this, though--Rex Carroll can still shred.

Yeah, I heard one of these songs on that reactions dude's channel on youtube. Kind of so-so song, but some really juicy guitar-work indeed.

I dunno if the Whitecross name should be attached to this, but it still sounds pretty good.

To be fair Whitecross stopped sounding like Whitecross when Wenzel was still a member, when they went all alternative. Stuff like Flytrap and Equilibrium were pretty shit.

I'll give you that. Though I have to admit that "Equilibrium" grew on me. I thought it was one of the better attempts for an '80s metal band to go alternative. But really, when it comes to Whitecross, the first 4 albums are all you really need.

    • That's good gear. You should've posted it in the NRL thread.     Go PANTHERS! BTW. I don't like the fact that the eels cheated to get to the GF (forward pass). It's not a good message to send to the kids out there.

    • Ah yes, the good old "side boob". Just as good, if not better than the good old "under boob".

Drum Wars), guitarist Steph Honde (Paul Di’Anno, Hollywood Monsters), and legendary drummer Vinny Appice (Dio, Black Sabbath). The three musicians have created a classic hard rock album in the vein of Dio, which is no surprise as Vinny is one of the original Dio members. The trio debut CD ”Kill The Beautiful” unleashes 11 original songs of classic hard with melody where the Dio influence is heard, but musically I found more similarity with Last In Line – the other Vinny band featuring Vivian Campbell. The band recorded the album during the pandemic and post Jim Crean’s short lived tenure with former KISS guitarist Vinnie Vincent. Crean was to perform with Vincent in his comeback performance alongside Carmine Appice (Ozzy Osbourne, Vanilla Fudge, Appice Brothers) and Tony Franklin (The Firm, Blue Murder), which unfortunately never materialized. So instead, we get an amazing album from Scream Taker, a classic hard rock album with an ’80s but also ’70s touches. Take as example “Stone Cold”. Its dark riffs takes you back to Black Sabbath’s primal sound, with lyrics taking on a mystical, epic adventure. The concept is about the King of the Vampires searching for his queen. Once the King has chosen his bride, he must bite her and she becomes his queen, to forever serve the master and oversee the undead. The husband of the queen relentlessly tries to rescue her to no avail. The hero falls and is brought down by the undead, and is left to roam for eternity. Other highlights include the title track, ‘Shattered Mirror’, ‘Blindman’, ‘Burning Flame’, all more melodic, at places bringing to mind classic Alice Cooper and Hollywood Monsters as well, then closer ‘Shine On’ is another doomy, sinister sabbath-esque number. Jim Crean gives a very solid vocal performance matched by Honde’s classic guitar riffs and Vinny Appice’s signature drumming. A well produced and executed record with a lot of things to enjoy. --------------------------------------------------------------------- (1) Scream Taker | Facebook Scream Taker - "Kill The Beautiful" CD – Merchbucket.com
