‘Flying Tigers’ is the superb follow up album to White Wizzard’s full length debut cd ‘Over The Top’ which was released in January 2010.
White Wizzard continues to produce terrific traditional melodic, fist-pounding 80s-style heavy metal whilst keeping all the tracks fresh and up to date. This album appeals to so many lovers of rock and metal as its heavy enough to satisfy however light enough to entice new rock fans to listen to it, especially with brilliant ballad ‘Starchild’.
‘Flying Tigers’ is superbly produced and all the songs stand out from each other. Superb solos, powerful rocking riffs, dual harmonies from Lewis & Cory along with Wyatt’s winning vocals. Giovanni drums work stands out on this album by using varying speeds and styles; he sets the feel to each track. They serve up everything you expect for rocking feel good album.
This is a wonderful album, White Wizzard have done themselves proud with this release. It shows how they have matured musically & lyrically by broadened their musical horizons. They have introduced new styles whilst keeping their original metal sound and feel. Go give it a listen and judge for yourselves.
