Upon hearing the first four songs of White Wizzard's new album Flying Tigers, I was prepared to give them a three star review, which really would've bummed me out. I like this band, and live they were excellent musicians and showmen. The songs that I listened to were fine, and good in their own right. But I have heard enough of this style from the first three Iron Maiden albums, Dio albums and White Wizzard's previous release, Over The Top, that I was disappointed by the lack of evolution by the band and bored by the style itself. The album then flung me a curve ball, one of many to come, that endeared me to this release. Night Train to Tokyo has a glammy, sunset strip sort of swing to it, with a pretty intoxicating melody. Night stalker sounds like vintage Maiden worship, like the combination of Aces High and Murders in the Rue Morgue. Then by far my favorite song on the album, Fall of Atlantis mixes middle eastern riffing, Halford vocals, prog-laiden heavy metal, with tremolo picking and double bass, giving the music the balls it needs! Blood on the Pyramids, finally switches the dynamics of how the band writes a song, and features intricate vocals, and some drum and guitar back and forth that really shakes up the stagnant nature of regurgitated NWOBHM, to create something original as well as vintage sounding. The rest of the album doesn't fail to surprise and dazzle, and most importantly rock. The band gets properly heavy, which leads to more interesting songs and develops that sense of evil, danger, and malice that the classic bands had but the Wizzard usually lacked. And the sense of experimentation leads them down a prog metal rabbit hole, where traditions are thrown away and heavy/brutal, riff/drum magic is allowed to blossom. There is enough new stuff here to satisfy me and now I'll be able to enjoy the more traditional tracks for what they are, instead of wishing what they could have been. Horns Up \nn/ and go see these guys live!

I came across White Wizzard only recently - and over the course of time from then until now I noticed two schools of thought regarding the band. One that disses the band as a boring 80s NOWBHM cut/copy/paste act while others relish a taste of the good old days by a fresh new band circa 2011. I belong to the second group - granted that White Wizzard do not break ground musically like Metallica (thrash), Nirvana (grunge), Korn/Limp Bizkit (NuMetal) and Maiden/Priest (metal) - the music is a delight for the ears.

WW frontman Jon Leon, the visionary of the band, is an excellent songwriter/bassist (think Steve Harris) and the only constant member that keeps the WW machine chugging along (think Dave Mustaine, Jon Schaffer). The first six songs on the record are a throwback to the 80s NWOBHM records (most notably "piece of mind) while the last 6 songs - which also form a mini-concept album within the album sound modern (Iced Earth) with progressive elements (Iron Maiden- The Final Frontier). Catchy hooks abound - West LA Nights and Flying Tigers are the best of the lot. Jon Leon plays all guitars on the record - which explains the lack of leads/solos. Singer (now ex-singer) Wyatt "Screamin' Demon" Anderson does his moniker proud and sings his butt off. Now only if Jon could (a) find a worthy successor to screamin' demon - who can stick around and (b) find a real lead guitarist - WW will be a force to reckon with.

In summary, if you are a fan of Maiden and Iced Earth or a metal fan who craves for some traditional heavy metal in the screamo-era - you will love this record guaranteed.

Over the top, then straight to the bottom of the barrel! After hearing their awesome "Over The Top" album, I was anxious to hear this release...only to get slapped in the face with this hunk o' junk! What makes this fail? All of the guitars was written by one guy--Jon Leon. With the lack of any changes & solos, the guitars quickly become boring and monotonous. Yes, they do resemble Iron Maiden & Judas Priest, but in a weaker form. Don't be fooled--this isn't classic material. I've even listened to this over 6 times, hoping it would grow on me. It didn't! It's just too boring & uninspired...

However, to be fair, 2 tracks do stand a bit above the rest:
(1) Fight To the Death -- This sounds like it could've been a deleted track from 'Over the Top'. Good track.
(10) Dark Alien Overture -- A very cool instrumental that will grab your attention.

That's it. Chalk this up as "disappointment of the year".

P.S. If you're looking for great British-inspired metal from 2011, check out Anvil's Juggernaut of Justice. That's my personal album-of-the-year! It smokes!!

Its usually hard to top a killer debut album and I don't think this did to its own rookies album but its very close! The reason it may not sound up to par with the first is because of the constant band troubles and line up changes...hopefully they grow up and figure it out! Great band!

California-based traditional metal revivalists White Wizzard issued their second full-length album - Flying Tigers - at the tail end of 2011. The band, which is best known for their extensive touring and continual lineup changes, saw some turnover once again. Of the lineup that appeared on 2010's Over the Top, only bassist/guitarist/songwriter Jon Leon and vocalist Wyatt Anderson remain, and Anderson left the band soon after Flying Tigers was released.

Turnover issues aside, White Wizzard already has a couple of very solid traditional metal releases under their (bullet) belts, and Flying Tigers is no exception. This is very much an exercise in Iron Maiden (and to a lesser extent Judas Priest) worship, and that's perfectly OK. White Wizzard does this kind of music very well, and it's always hard rocking, catchy as hell and just plain fun. Seriously, people shouldn't be expecting some deep and meaningful progressive epic here. They should expect a dozen metal anthems with galloping leads, a very prominent bass sound, and some killer vocals. Of those dozen, "Fight to the Death," "Night Stalker" and "Demons and Diamonds" stand out, but the whole album is rock solid.

If you enjoyed High Speed GTO and Over the Top, Flying Tigers should not disappoint. It's not quite as amazing as what Widow and Twisted Tower Dire put out in 2011 (see the excellent Life's Blood and Make It Dark), but it was still one of the year's better traditional heavy metal releases.

PS - White Wizzard is touring the US this Summer with Widow and Icarus Witch. Check `em out!
