"The Devil's Cut" (Earache Records; 2013)

Reviewed by Snidermann

White Wizzard's "The Devil's Cut" is not only a great metal record, but a metal record that would have been at home on the air in the mid to late 80s and early 90s. The killer high range vocals combined with the superb double guitar-based music transported me back to that time. And I don't want to forget about the exceptional bass and drum work -- all of this combined makes White Wizzard one great band.

This music is fun to listen to and it gets better with each spin. Although there are some who would disagree with me, I do not like all the silly names that have been given to the various hard rock genres: glam, pop, grunge, progressive, gothic, emo, alternative, symphonic, etc. To me, music is music, and White Wizzard delivers a stunning musical experience. Their music is powerful, concise and instantly addictive. I can't wait to play some White Wizzard on Rough Edge Radio!

For more information, check out www.facebook.com/WhiteWizzard, www.whitewizzardofficial.com, or http://www.myspace.com/whitewizzard and listen to some of their music. I am certain you will find some music you will like.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
