Atlantic & Lion

Very little is publicly known about Atlantic & Lion at present, other than their members are drawn from Sheffield, Preston, and London, and that the band have made three tracks available to stream, and to download for free, on their bandcamp. Without a band facebook page, the social media anchor for most bands, Atlantic & Lion are certainly not giving too many secrets away, however their latest track ‘I Forgot to Say’ should quickly distract any pangs of curiosity and plunge your attentions into a blissful sea of reverb drenched garage rock.

As Atlantic & Lion currently have no official releases, ‘I Forgot to Say’ stands as the band’s most recent, and most developed, demo. However the track doesn’t suffer from the usual pitfalls that demos are notoriously known for, and instead 'I Forgot to Say' actually benefits from the lo-fi nature of its recording. Fuzzy vocals are balanced upon the jaunty swathes of guitars and echoing percussion, which allows the lyrical nature of the track to retain a resonance without overshadowing the instrumentation. What’s more, while the track could easily be cropped to the more recognizable four minute mark, the final two minutes provide a blistering period of guitar shredding that propels the record from engaging and pleasant, to an experience I’m craving to see live. It is this epic outro that not only cements this track as a well crafted piece of music, but also displays the exciting potential Atlantic & Lion possess in developing their sound further. With rumours the band are currently booking shows for early 2012, I’m certainly keeping my eyes peeled for any dates within a 100 mile radius of wherever I happen to be come the new year.

White wizzard

White Wizzard hails from Los Angeles CA. Tired of the same old down-tuned 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. A 7 song EP was recorded in the fall of 2007 with the first line up and was well received and is about to be released worldwide. White Wizzard is currently in the studio working on it's first full length album. The release date is hopeful to be later in 2009.
