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.
Jon then reformed the line up and released their debut full-length album entitled "Over the Top". The album has received rave reviews.
White Wizzard is currently working on their second album to be released in early 2011. 2 songs from the forthcoming album have been put up on MySpace for everyone to preview.
With a screaming demon on vocals, a tight guitar attack that can shred AND play with feel, thunderous melodic bass and drums, White Wizzard is poised to take the torch of the great metal bands of the past. They look to the future with a dominating spirit and memorable melodic hooks and songwriting. See you on tour...
Magazines as diverse as Classic Rock and Skater bible Thrasher both concur - both equally sing the praises of this new NWOBHM-inspired HM band:
" Over The Top doesn't sound dated at all. Like all the best NWOBHM this crackles with livewire enthusiasm; it's blissfully naïve, delightfully underproduced and impregnated with a deep-rooted affection for the music.."
