WAMI stands for Doogie White (ex-Rainbow, Michael Schenker), Vinny Appice (ex-Black-Sabbath, Heaven & Hell, Dio), Marco Mendoza (ex-Thin-Lizzy, ex-Whitesnake) and the 16-year-old Polish guitarist Iggy Gwadera. The big names are mainly means to an end, because none of the "famous" musicians wrote only one single note for "Kill The King". The production was completely in Polish hands, whereby the "wunderkind" Iggy could already exert musical influence. His guitar playing seems professional and according to the songs, but you never get the impression that you are discovering the new Yngwie Malmsteen or Eddie van Halen here. The peculiarity lies in the fact that he is as far away as Axel Rudi Pell or Vivian Campbell in his teenage years as, say, Axel Rudi Pell or Vivian Campbell in his manhood. Whoever breathes soul into the often too conventionally and predictably designed songs, however, is Doogie White, who sings as if it were his last album. He hasn't been so involved with Schenker, Tank or La Paz in the past, but rather with Demon's Eye.
