WHITE LIGHTNENING - DR. MEANBERGER'S SINISTER PLOT
Metal To Infinity
band I discovered at myspace.com. The high pitched vocals on the songs at
their page immediately received my attention and this band from Portland /
Oregon was prepared to send me a CD-R of their EP. So, the band has no label yet
but the guys did more than their best to create a band logo, a front cover and
this EP. I suppose at least one of the members is a fan of comics…
songs are awesome; the style is typical eighties US Metal. In the opening track,
“The Nefarious Dr. Meanberger” the band experimented somewhat, especially in
the middle part, something that didn’t really work out but still
I’ve heard some cool music.
guitar players have the right feeling for the kind of riffs they play and the
solos are more than enjoyable. Don’t expect some new shredders but the twin
guitars and the long solos in for example “Wings of hell” are fantastic.
I hear great melodic lines and very good guitar sessions. Actually
“Wings Of Hell” is a good Metal song, not at all original but performed on a
way we, at MTI, adore. Most ‘ear catching’ is singer Tony Cordes, also
guitar player, because of his clean and strong voice. Especially at “Fields Of
Core”, the best track on this EP, he reminds me to Andy Michaud of Liege Lord.
Also musical wise and qua atmosphere this song reminds me to this mighty US
Power Metal band, awesome!
release isn’t really available for sell. This band contains good musicians and
must grow! Check them out at: http://www.myspace.com/whitelightning86
