ARTIST: White Eagle
ALBUM: Bustin' Ass
LABEL: White Eagle Music
YEAR: 1993


LINEUP: Matthew Black - vocals * Jack Pemma - guitar * Terry Tallerino - bass * Sean Haiker - drums

White Eagle were a hair-metal band out of California who were probably five years too late when their debut 'Bustin'Ass' was released in 1993. This band have found a bit of 'love' on the Heavy Harmonies website, but at the end of the day, their music may or not appeal to you, because their style of metal is fairly ham-fisted. It's solid, has all the hair metal attributes, plus some great guitar work from the late Jack Pemma. Previously known as Black Shadow, There's nothing here that hasn't been heard before, and while the vocals of Matthew Black are an acquired taste, the band are reasonably accomplished within their chosen sub-genre of melodic rock.

The Songs
'Sex Fever' is pretty silly on lyrics, but rocks hard for an opener. 'Take Me For A Ride' is a pumping affair in the vein of Motley Crue. I like this for sure. 'Time' is the first of two ballads, again nothing to set the world on fire or that hasn't been heard before. Nice enough. 'Hot Wet Kiss' is a groovy rocker with a fast pace. The intro sounds like something that Van Halen or David Lee Roth would do. Not quite convinced with the vocals though. The guitars are positively charged for 'Love Games', it's pretty good and sounds stuck in the late 80's which is a great thing yes? 'Shadow Of Love' is the second ballad and last song of this 6-tracker. Again, it's ok but not really my cup of tea.

In Summary
White Eagle would gain infamy on the Ebay second-hand CD market with some idiot spending over $600 for this CD. No disrespect to the band, but surely they would know that $600 plus for a 6-track CD is a bit over the top! Pemma would release two more albums (though not under the banner of White Eagle) before passing away in August 2004 of a diabetes related illness.
