Everything about this record is perfect. From the wacky, bright, colorful and sharp-looking album artwork to the catchy operatic singing, Los Angeles band White Wizzard makes sure that every detail not only pays homage to traditional heavy metal, but is also (more importantly) given a modern touch as well.

White Wizzard hails from Los Angeles CA. 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.
Since the bands formation they released an EP titled 'High Speed GTO' (2007) and two full legnth albums titled 'Over The Top' (2010) and 'Flying Tigers' (2011). The band has toured the world opening for some of the most renowned names in Heavy Metal including Iced Earth, Firewind, Forbidden and Korpiklaani. In addition to touring they have made notable appearences at Download Festival in 2010 and a special show in Tokyo, Japan in 2012.
White Wizzard recently completed their first headlining tour of the US and are working on their third full length album. A demo track from recent recording sessions called 'Torpedo of Truth' was recently leaked by Earache Records and will appear on the new album.
