Bio:

Whitecross is a Christian metal band that formed in 1985 in Waukegan, IL releasing their first recording in 1987. Their early albums, which often invite comparisons to Ratt, are laced with fast, technical guitar work. In 1994, Rex Carroll split with lead vocalist Scott Wenzel. Scott retained the use of the name "Whitecross" while Rex went on to form King James with Jimi Bennett (see below). At this point the band's sound underwent a drastic change.Whitecross has won three Dove Awards with Triumphant Return (in 1990) and In the Kingdom (in 1992) winning "Metal Album of the Year" and Come unto the Light from the Unveiled album winning "Hard Music Recorded Song of the Year" at the 25th GMA Dove Awards in 1994.In 1994 prior to work starting on the Unveiled album, guitarist Rex Carroll left to form the band King James and pursue other musical ventures. In 1998, singer Scott Wenzel took a two-year break to do mission work in Paraguay, South America. During this time, Whitecross went on hiatus before re-emerging at Cornerstone Festival in 2000 when Carroll and Wenzel re-formed the band with Rex, Scott, Michael Feighan and newcomer Benny Ramos providing bass, keyboards and vocals. Finally having achieved a long-sought lineup stability, the band started performing on a regular basis.In 2005, the band went back into the studio to record Nineteen Eighty Seven, which featured re-recordings of nine of the ten songs from the band's self-titled debut album (You're Mine being the exclusion), as well as a re-recording of the song Love on the Line (previously unavailable on CD) and a new guitar instrumental by Rex Carroll.On April 5, 2008, they played at the Legends of Rock festival in Ennepetal, Germany. Beginning in July 2008, they played the first of several short tours in Guatemala featuring shows in Guatemala City, Panajachel, Huehuetenango, among other cities.On March 12, 2011, Rex made post on his Facebook page announcing that he is "working on some guitar tracks for new Whitecross songs" which is likely to be for their new album.

Album:

"Nineteen Eighty Seven" is a completely new recording of the original self-titled album by WHITECROSS, originally released... yes, in 1987. How dare such a phenomenal band with some of the most talented, but unfortunately, underrated musicians around re-release their brilliant and quintessential US hard / hair metal debut? Well, they make the darn thing better than the original, that's how. No kidding. Better. "Nineteen Eighty Seven" was released in 2006 but soon went out of print, so Girder Records is re-issuing it again. The amazingly talented partnership of singer Scott Wenzel and guitar wizard Rex Carroll reunited last decade and taken what to a handful of aficionados was a brilliant slab of 'white metal' and turned the bugger up to 11.No stone left unturned, many basic tracks not only were remastered, but mostly re-recorded! Yes, they re-recorded the whole debut except for 'Your Mine', but has 2 additional bonus tracks: "Love On The Line" from the '6.98 Love On The Line EP', and a new instrumental by Rex Carroll called "Re:Animate". And I will say, after all these years the guys haven't lost any of their musical prowess. If anything Rex is faster and Scott's voice is just as powerful as it ever was - which is amazing considering the time and the Stephen Pearcy-esque raspiness of his voice. If you can't get enough of bands like Ratt, Dokken, Stryper and any number of million album sellers from the late '80s, then Whitecross' "Nineteen Eighty Seven" is a mandatory listen. If shredders like George Lynch, Warren DeMartini or Eddie Van Halen gets your head bobbing and your feet tapping then again Rex Carroll and company are a band that you need to hear.
