As previously announced, in late Spring a new exciting project WAMI (White Appice Mendoza Iggy) will see the light of day. The album entitled "Kill the King" will give a new meaning to hard'n'heavy music! The names associated with it are true legends on the hard rock scene: on the vocals - Doogie White (Rainbow, Michael Schenker, Yngwie Malmsteen), on the drums - Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell, DIO), on the bass - Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake), who join forces with the 16-year-old Polish guitarist Iggy Gwadera, who made his debut 2 years ago as the guitarist of Anti Tank Nun.
The band have recently joined facebook and twitter to keep their fans updated with the band's all activities. Feel free to join them here: www.facebook.com/WAMIband & http://twitter.com/WAMIBand.
WAMI is currently promoting the album in Poland with the track "Guardian of Your Heart", which features guest appearance by Piotr Cugowski from a popular Polish rock band Bracia. The first international single "Wild Woman (You Oughta Know)" will be officially released on March, 11th.
The idea to record an album together was born after Thin Lizzy's concert in Poland. The bassist Marco Mendoza, delighted with the young guitarist Iggy, who supported Thin Lizzy with his band Anti Tank Nun, suggested that they record some music together. This first idea, which was maturing for the next dozen-odd months, eventually evolved into the project involving legendary musicians, who are currently recording a brand new album together with Iggy. The drummer Vinny Appice, renowned for playing in some of the best heavy metal bands of worldwide fame, as also the bassist Marco Mendoza have already finished recording bass and drum tracks in Los Angeles. In late November 2013, Doogie White confronted his vocal talent with Iggy's guitar technique during their recording sessions in Poland. Hard rock fans can well expect the results of these sessions to be truly outstanding!
