5.0 out of 5 stars Great NWOBHM-album 4 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
Wonderfull NWOBHM CD from these guys. Maiden, Priest, 80's Sabbath early Leppard, you name it, they are influenced by them. An excellent singer but the most I like the guitarwork. Lost of twin (of course) an many guitarsolo's, sometimes up to 4 or 5 in one song. Not to be missed!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A "high octane" ride from start to finish! 4 July 2013
By Mitch3114 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
When I found out this album was coming out I knew I had to buy it. So, it came out... and I bought it. I was not disappointed. This has some old school flavor with a little bit of maiden and priest flare to it. However, White Wizzard DO have their own unique sound. Don't think that this is just some recreation of the 80's with some standardized heavy metal songs. This album is much more more complex than that...

From start to finish The Devil's Cut will rock your socks off. It is produced very nicely and mixed well. The whole album seems to just flow. It's like one composition that is best enjoyed as a whole. It starts off with an awesome instrumental, Forge the Steal, that you would swear Steve Harris and Dave Murray were a part of... and takes of from there with Strike While the Iron is Hot. The momentum continues until the fifth track, Steal Your Mind. This is one of two slower songs. Then it picks back up and ends with the epic, The Sun Also Rises.

This album has it all, fast paced high energy songs with killer riffs and complex solos, slower well composed numbers, and I really like how there is an instrumental and an epic last track, coming in just under ten minutes long. My favorite track on the album is Lightning in my hands. It's hard, it's heavy, it's high energy and it has some of the sickest riffs I have ever heard. Kings of the Highway, Strike the Iron and Storm Chaser also stand out. The devils cut seems to be the only track that doesn't really stick out to me. Although very well done, it's just not as memorable. That aside, this album as a whole is a great listener, which is a very good thing. Gone are the days of buying a CD or a cassette just because you like one or two songs and then you find out the rest of the album is just filler or worse, downright terrible. Now, people can preview each song and if there is only one or two good tracks, then they can just buy them individually.

This album has everything a great heavy metal album should have, energy, intense riffs and killer vocals. I think White Wizzard make an excellent choice selecting Joseph Michael for vocals. He has a great voice that mixes well with the bands guitar work. Vocally, he has a large range from a darker, more sinister voice to high pitched screams and wails that could shatter glass to angry and downright evil. I think his cousin Ronnie James Dio would have been proud! So, as I was saying, if you like heavy metal buy this album. It's soft, it's hard, it's heavy and it's beautiful. A great listen whether you're working out, relaxing or cruisin' down the boulevard.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars - probably the best thing White Wizzard has done 16 Sep 2013
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
California-based traditional heavy metal warriors White Wizzard are back with a new album this year. The Devil's Cut is the band's third full-length album, and as with nearly all of their previous releases it features an almost totally new lineup. Founding bassist Jon Leon is of course on board, as is drummer Giovanni Gurst (who appeared on 2011's Flying Tigers). They are joined by guitarists Jake Dreyer and Will Wallner and vocalist Joseph Michael.

White Wizzard's essential sound is built on the classic heavy metal of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Dio, and that doesn't change at all here. What has changed - and for the better - is that the band sounds much tighter and more focused this time around. Not that Flying Tigers or Over the Top weren't enjoyable, but The Devil's Cut is the album that comes closest to the spirit of the High Speed GTO EP while showing real growth and polish. The songs are ridiculously catchy and melodic, the guitar work is just flashy enough to be a lot of fun, and the rhythms are tight as always. The vocals are what really stand out though. Joseph Michael is a relative newcomer, but he has a fantastic range and power, and a great presence live as well.

The Devil's Cut is a fairly brief album at just nine tracks (and one an instrumental intro), but it packs a big punch. "Strike the Iron" and "Kings of the Highway" are just fantastic heavy metal anthems, and start the album off right. "Steal Your Mind" kind of kills the momentum midway through, but the title track, and "Torpedo of Truth" (which is way more fun than its ridiculous lyrics would lead you to believe) put things back on track for the powerful "Storm Chaser" and "The Sun Also Rises" to end things on an epic note.

It's not a stretch to call The Devil's Cut the best White Wizzard full-length album to date. The band got everything right here, and the result is an album any fan of traditional heavy metal - whether old school bands like Maiden, Priest, Accept and Dio or more recent bands like Widow, Icarus Witch, Cauldron and yes Holy Grail - ought to love. Here's hoping this lineup sticks around. It will be great to see what they come up with next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great traditional heavy metal 1 Sep 2013
By N. Bojer - Published on Amazon.com

This album really surprised me. This band has been through so many changes that I did not expect much. It looks like they may have finally put it all together. If you like traditional metal then get this.

For anyone that knows the history of this band, I like this a whole lot better than Holy Grail's Ride the Void. It may be that Holy Grail is moving in a more modern direction and I prefer the traditional metal sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Metal Perfection 17 Jun 2014
By Boka - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I heard of White Wizzaard a few years ago and liked them but this new album blows the hinges off anything they have done before. I won't go into details about each song. The album is very close to perfection. The cover art, song writing, musicianship and production is at a very high level. If you liked their earlier work you will love this.
