White Heat - "White Heat" (album stream)

Το ομώνυμο ντεμπούτο των White Heat
Οι White Heat (της συγκεκριμένης ανάρτησης, γιατί υπάρχουν κι άλλες μπάντες με το ίδιο όνομα) μας έρχονται από το Βέλγιο και δραστηριοποιήθηκαν στο πρώτο μισό της δεκαετίας του ογδόντα. Τρεις "ολοκληρωμένοι" δίσκοι κι ένα single ο απολογισμός τους.

Η δισκογραφία της μπάντας:

➜ "White Heat" (full length, 1982)
➜ "Krakatoa" (full-length, 1983)
➜ "Runnin' for Life" (full-length, 1985)
➜ "True Love" (single, 1985)

Πλέον οι Βέλγοι hard & heavy metallers επέστρεψαν - επανασυνδέθηκαν προ μηνών. Μαζί τους επέστρεψε και η δισκογραφία τους μέσω των επανακυκλοφοριών (σε cd) της Karthago Records. Εστιάζουμε στο ομώνυμο ντεμπούτο τους (που επανακυκλοφόρησε στις 28 Μαΐου) και το ακούμε ολόκληρο...

Δελτίο τύπου: «The band White Heat was founded in 1980 and released the albums ´White Heat´ (1982), ´Krakatoa´ (1983) and ´Runnin 'For Life´ (1985). At the end of 1986 White Heat disbanded, but the cult is still alive today.

This status is mainly due to the debut album, made by singer Tigo Fawzi, guitarists Dirk Cleybergh and Robby Walter, bass player Stan Verfaillie and drummer Frank Pauwels. The music on the album is contemporary hard rock of the early 80's with NWoBHM influences.

The fact that White Heat appealed to the 80s young metal fans was due to the Hard rock influences of Krokus, AC/DC, Whitesnake and Van Halen. The songs from the 'White Heat' album from 1982 have all been remastered and are now being re-released by Karthago Records. The time has come to rediscover the Belgian band White Heat.»

Bio: «By the end of the 70’s, Rob and Dirk, two guitarists from Antwerp, decided they had enough songs to form a band and hit the road. Thus White Heat was born. In the early 80’s hard rock bands gained popularity and in 1981 White Heat opened for Ted Nugent in Forest National, Brussels and they were offered a record deal with Mausoleum Records.

In 1982, their first self-entitled album “White Heat” was released. This immediately gave them the status of biggest hard rock band in Belgium and lots of opportunities to play live. It didn’t go unnoticed and soon they were approached by producer Ron Westerbeek to record an LP at the Bulletsound Studios in Holland and sign a major record deal with 21 Records.

In order to keep the drive and power of the band on stage, the second album “Krakatoa“ was recorded live in the studio and released in 1983. Reviews were great and the band started a major tour in Holland, Belgium and Germany. In 1985 White Heat recorded their third album “Running for Life” with British producer John Tilly.

Late 1985 a single version of “True Love” was released and became "troetelschijf" on radio Hilversum 3, which gave it heavy rotation. Due to circumstances White Heat disbanded in 1986 after 6 years of intensive touring and having lots of fun.

And in 2021 the saga continues... In 2020, during the corona crisis, Rob and Stan decided it was time to get the show back on the road.

Some of the original members were unavailable and they searched for worthy replacements: Flype Lemmens, former singer of well-known Belgian bands such as Twilight, Double Diamond and Fireforce joined the band. On guitar we have whizz-kid Sam Lemmens, former guitar player of Evil Invaders, Belgium’s hottest metal band at the moment. The man behind the drumkit is Steve Vanderperren of 10 Rogue (amongst many others).»
