Editorial Reviews

2010 album from the Los Angeles-based Heavy Metal quintet. Tired of the same old down-tuned screamo Metal that seems to be everywhere these days, Jon Leon formed White Wizzard in the summer of 2007. The goal was simple - to bring the songwriting, melody and good times back into Metal and Rock. With a screaming demon on vocals, a tight two guitar attack that can shred AND play with feel, thunderous melodic bass and drums, White Wizzard is poised to take the torch of the great Metal bands of the past and look to the future with a dominating spirit and memorable melodic hooks and songwriting.

Format: Audio CD
If you're a fan of traditional heavy metal (think 1985, just before thrash and hair metal took over), this is a great time to be alive. We're in the middle of what UK mag Metal Hammer has dubbed the New Wave of Traditional Metal (NWOTM) and one of the more exciting bands to emerge from the NWOTM is California's White Wizzard.

White Wizzard released an EP last year (the excellent High Speed GTO), and subsequently lost every member except for bassist Jon Leon. Leon put together a new lineup, battle-tested them on the road opening for Korpiklaani, and put together a full-length album - Over the Top.

Over the Top is essentially 9 songs of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest worship, which is why it rules. There's a fierce (yet melodic) twin-guitar attack, very prominent Steve Harris-style bass, soaring dramatic vocals, and all the songs are about rocking in the night and battling for metal. The lyrics are beyond cheesy at times, but that only adds to their appeal. There's just a great NWOBHM meets Metal Massacre vibe to these songs that makes me like the album more each time I spin it.

If you're a fan of traditional heavy metal, it doesn't get much better than this. Between Over the Top, Icarus Witch's new album Draw Down the Moon and oh yeah a new Iron Maiden album, 2010 should be a banner year for traditional metal.

PS - I saw White Wizzard live earlier this year, and they put on a high-energy show. If you get a chance, check them out.

PPS - I know the split with the original members - who went on to form Holy Grail - wasn't exactly friendly, but the end result is two great metal bands. If you like White Wizzard, you'll want to check out Holy Grail's Improper Burial EP.

I am compelled to write a review on White Wizzard.

First because I can't stand reading reviews that don't know what they are talking about. Second this album deserves more stars.

First, WW is a true retro rock band and in no way even close to Steel Panther + Wildstreet. I have to ask..did you LISTEN to it..or did you just shoot off a review on the first few notes? I've listened to all genres of metal and Steel Panther could be considered a "joke" band. But WW is about as far from that music as the earth is to the sun.

So as much as I rarely listen to the really fundamental mindless jock rock (it has it's place) any good metalhead knows the difference between a creatively different (and retro) band like WW opposed to bands like Steel Panther.

There is no way Steel Panther or god-forbid Motley Crue could pull off the complexity and melody of this band. Anybody that thinks this hasn't really listened to it. FYI - It's called progressive, power, symphonic metal for a reason.

I first heard Over The Top shortly after it was released in 2010. It was an album I randomly decided to sample and I had no previous knowledge of the band. I therefore wasn't expecting much and I was very pleasantly surprised by what I heard. My favorite era in metal has always been the period that encompassed the late 70's and early 80's, the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. It was an exciting time and I was as enthusiastic a metalhead as anyone in those days. My first listen to Over The Top was akin to being rocketed back in time to that era. It captures very well all the key elements I loved about bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Saxon, and so many others. It is filled with blistering solos and soaring, "over the top" vocals inspired by the likes of Dickinson, Halford, and Dio. Maybe WW aren't yet quite in the same league as those classic giants of metal, but this first full-length offering was a solid first step down that path. A couple of other reviews here have likened them to "joke" metal outfits like Steel Panther, which I feel is insanely inaccurate. This music is authentic and from-the-heart, and delivered without a trace of ironic hipster posing. If you're a fan of traditional metal or remember the NWOBHM as fondly as I do, Over The Top is an essential purchase.

WOW, this is trip back to the mid 80's, when great heavy metal bands ruled! I know that there's been a few bands attempting at being retro, but end up being monotonous in the end. Not this awesome band--the songs have enough variance between them that make them easily distinguishable and memorable. There's also been references of this being glam metal (e.g. Poison & Motley Crue), but this band is heavier and fits in more like Savatage, Manowar & Queensryche's 1st EP. This is NOT hair band music, it's classic Z-Rock music and should not be missed. If you're familiar with Warrior's "Fighting For the Earth", then you know what to expect here. This is my favorite album of this year so far, and I haven't heard anything this great for a very long time. OVER THE TOP rules!!!

P.S. If you're also considering their "High Speed GTO" EP, listen to it on White Wizzard's myspace page first (click on the "Albums" tab in the player). I personally didn't get into it, as it's more like early 80's rock 'n' roll (e.g. REO Speedwagon).

This is a thoroughly enjoyable old-school metal record. As someone who was around when Maiden, Priest et al. were in their prime, I can see the old-guard complaining about a lack of originality from these youngsters, but it doesn't bother me a bit. The solid singing and melodic guitar harmonies are welcome in a modern metal world where most vocalists don't really "sing" and melody takes a backseat to brutality. I recently picked up White Wizzard's debut EP as well, and while there are a handful of great tracks there, Over the Top" rocks from start to finish!
