White Witch – Never Dies The Dream… CD review

White Witch – Never Dies The Dream... CD (Independent Release)
I delayed the review of White Witch’s third effort that was released right before the end of 2007, but that happened to some obligatory circumstances that I could not overpass. I expected the follow up to “The Power” with great anticipation and I was pleasantly surprised to witness a nice starter like the song “Slaughter In Salem” is: Powerful and catchy so my appetite for the rest of the album was growing. The duet “Singleman” and “Game That I Play” however pulled my break, they were it was too commercial for my ears, while “Prince of Darkness” was in the same vein, but I enjoyed most its chorus. But since i trusted this band in their previous album, I somehow felt that they would not let me down! “Underneath The Lights” is the song that White Witch knows how to create and turn the power up. That’s the style of the band that I enjoy again and again: Decent Hard Rock, with wonderful chorus and guitars that stuck in your mind! Uncle Jeff’s performance in that song and the way that sings is what really appeals to me! “The Seed” is mid-tempo track with an atmosphere close to the first era of Black Sabbath when the song begins. This is the song also tha carries the guitar parts that gave White Witch that specific trademark which makes them special! “Street Corner Madness” is the most powerful song of the CD and definitely my pick! I think White Witch saved the best for last and really offered us a great dynamite! The third album of the band showcases once again their talent and if they manage to be careful with the production and with some Rock N’ Roll songs that reduces their might (guys, the style that fits you lies in “Street Corner Madness”), then their 4rd CD might give them also their first record contract!
