Review Flash

I got acquainted with this nice lady over Instagram because she like my channel there and asked if I could give the new release a few spins and do a write-up. Spoiler alert, I said yes. Here is what the press text has to say before I take my turn: “Lisa Mann made a career as an award winning blues artist, but never lost her love of metal music. Growing up in the moshpits of the 1980s, she was inspired by bands such as IRON MAIDEN, MERCYFUL FATE, BLACK SABBATH, MANOWAR, DIO and more. A mostly one-woman project, WHITE CRONE is a love letter to this grand era of metal, and a lyrical homage to mystical storytelling traditions of yore.”

And what does this old geezer think about it? Yes every once in a while the press text sums it up quite nicely. Lisa has indeed a great voice, rich and powerful she dominates the compositions with ease but without being mixed too much into the front. This indeed sounds like a bow before the classics and the masters that did perform them in the days of old. Lisa left nothing to chance, drums, guitars, and bass... everything sounds great and is played by skilled artists plus guest like Vinny Appice (DIO, BLACK SABBATH; KILL DEVIL HILL).

Conclusion: A solid start for the metal part of Lisa Mann`s career, check this out!

Rating: 7.5 / 10
