“Kill the King”, the debut album by WAMI will see the light of day in mid May. The names associated with the project 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.
Doogie White’s vocals were recorded in November 2013 in Studio Analiz in Szczecin, Poland. Wojtek Cugowski , Piotr Cugowski and Jarek Chilkiewicz from Polish rock band Bracia were responsible for the recording session. A short clip from the studio is now available on Metal Mind Productions’ YouTube channel in THIS location.

“Kill The King” album is scheduled for release on May, 12th in Europe and May, 13th in North America (via MVD).

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!
