Biography

Of all the glam/pop-metal bands that crawled out of hair salons coast to coast during the mid- to late '80s, one of the more talented acts was New York's White Lion, led by singer Mike Tramp (originally from Denmark) and guitarist Vito Bratta. The group originally formed in 1983 and despite several bassists and drummers coming and going (including future Black Sabbath and Great White ... Read more in Amazon's White Lion Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Vito Bratta August 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I agree with everyone here, Vito (White Lion's guitartist) is phenomenal on this album. I don't play guitar but know enough that the work on this album, especially on 'hungry' and 'don't give up' is unbelievably great and you'll never get tired of listening to these tracks. The first time I heard White Lion I was listening to every other hair band in the Eighties. But when I heard this album, the hair on my neck stood up due to the sheer complex and intricate style Vito brings to these otherwise simple songs. If you like George Lynch of Dokken, the get this album if only for the incendiary guitar solos.

5.0 out of 5 stars White Lion's "Pride" February 18, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Pride" (1987) was my very first introduction to White Lion and remains my favorite album by the band. This album is an absoluteley flawless work of art. Mike Tramp (Who sounds a bit like a cross between Megadeth's Dave Mustaine and Testament's Chuck Billy) has a talented and unique vocal style that mixes perfectly with one of my guitar heros, Vito Bratta. Ex-Anthrax drummer Greg D'Angelo has a powerful 80's style to his snare and kick drums while bassist James Lomenzo rocks awesome on the 4-string. "Pride" begins with the catchy and heavy song "hungry", which instantly grabs the listener. Next comes "Lonely Nights" which is also a very catchy song and has an absolutely phenomenal solo by Vito Bratta. "Don't Give Up" and "Sweet Little Loving" are also great songs with awesome guitar riffs and suprises. Then comes the more serious "Lady of The Valley" which features a great variety of tempo changes, mixtures of acoustic and electric guitar, and some very beautiful harmony, including a mysterious but awesome solo. "Wait" is another excellent song with great rhythm and tapping work by Vito. "All You Need Is Rock N Roll", "Tell Me", and "All Join Our Hands" are also very great songs with exceptional metal chemistry and breath-taking solos. Last but not least comes "When The Children Cry", which is a very surreal ballad that is put together as a beautiful ensemble of acoustic guitar and harmony. In this song, Vito plays an extremely emotional solo, which could literally bring tears to your eyes. I can't conjure up enough postive compliments about "Pride" and White Lion. It upsets me that some reviewers think of Vito Bratta as merely "a rip-off of Eddie Van Halen. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars The best I've had the chance to listen to! October 20, 2006
By M. Corn
Format:Audio CD
Now, let me start off by saying that I am a BIG White Lion fan. I own every album they did except for Fight To Survive (which I'm soon to own as I ordered it, hehe). Though one of my favorite songs of all time by them, which happened to be off the Fight To Survive album titled "All The Fallen Men", really let me see a heavier side to them, I believe Pride best demonstrates their effort in a heavy, yet not so raw feel. Let me break down each song and tell you what I think, personally.

Hungry- 10/10: The first song on the album, and indeed it's a very explosive way to kick things off. The song comes in with a nice power guitar (alone at this time), which gives you an almost pure arena rock sense. The drums then kick in, and everything comes together very nicely from there forward. Very well produced, and of course a great solo by Bratta.

Lonely Nights- 10/10: My favorite song on the whole album! A beautiful acoustic guitar coming in to play the riff, which is followed by a distorted rhythm repeating the riff again, only a step higher (I believe). Great vocals by Tramp which really fit the tone, but the most memorable part of the song, for me, was the absolutely incredible solo by Vito Bratta. One of his best solos ever, in my opinion.

Don't Give Up- 9/10: Keeping up the fast pace, a more popish sounding tune places as the third track on the album. In fact, if anything, the melody is the greatest aspect of this song. The vocals were top notch, and the half step up was executed perfectly. The only thing that made me give a 9 for this song was the rather uninventive lyrics. Overall, great song though.

Sweet Little Loving- 8/10: Normally, I'd say a song like this is great. However, for White Lion standards (well, maybe just in my eyes), it's okayish.

5.0 out of 5 stars For sheer metal, don't miss the "lion's" roar! August 6, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Rock would not be what it is today without the sheer force that this White Lion record unveiled upon the world. And their next two records weren't bad, either!! This effort was unfortunately released in 1987, the same huge year that Leppard's "Hysteria" and G + R's "Appetite for Destruction" were released, two very overrated and commercial albums. If not for those two metal releases, I truly believe White Lion's "Pride" would have been even huger than it was. Whereas the aforementioned bands either mired themselves in a glossy studio sheen (Leppard), or delved into the hard-partying lifestyle that can break a band (G + R), White Lion wrote sensitive ballads with an eye towards a life larger than themselves. In other words, they weren't your typical 80's metal band; they wrote about social issues, and their love ballads were more than just about sex (Leppard), or using women (G + R). No, the boys from Lion aimed a little higher than your average 80's metal filth. Take, for instance, the heartwrenching ballad entitled "When the Children Cry," a tune that still brings tears to my eyes in 2002. When others wrote about lust, drugs and partyin' all night, White Lion wrote a tender ballad that came from the meek child's point of view, as on this special song. How many metal bands...no, check that, how many bands in general would ever even dream of writing from the meek child's perspective, except perhaps the lover of "all the children of the world," Michael Jackson - The King of Pop. Except for perhaps a hymnal song in church, folks, you ain't gonna' find this kind of love for the world.
Though they were a platinum selling act, White Lion did not get the props they deserved. They should have been the Zeppelin of the 80's, not the Peter Frampton of the 70's. Anyways, for true metal, check out "Pride" by Lion.
