White Heart - 1989 Freedom
'Freedom', released in 1989 still remains my favourite output from the group. I would still recommend this album to be a great starting point to listen to white drenched songs of melodic supremacy.

White Heat - 1989 We Never Heard Of You Either
From Winnipeg, Manitoba, these guys combine elements of Def Leppard hair metal, with Canadian AOR/rock in the shape of Boulevard, Glass Tiger and Honeymoon Suite.

White Lion - 1989 Big Game
White Lio's third effort, which made 1989 an overall enjoyble year for me.

Whitesnake - 1989 Slip Of The Tongue
A general consensus among many is that this album abandoned what Coverdale had started with Whitesnake in an attempt to cash in on the band's momentum. Gone is much of the bluesy element, replaced with a very slick production and songs that were meant to appeal to the masses.

Winter Rose - 1989 Winter Rose
The first album to feature vocals from James Labrie, Winter Rose is a sensational Canadian melodic hard rock album from 1989, which was a pretty good year for the genre in general.

Wolfsbane - 1989 Live Fast Die Fast
Formed in Tamworth, England in 1986, Wolfsbane were once one of British heavy metals finest hopes. After years of rejection from the major labels, Rick Rubin took a chance on the lads and signed them to his offshoot Def American label, the metal portion of the famed Def Jam rap empire. Led by wild man Blaze Bayley, the Wolfsbane debut was shoddily produced by Rubin, who forgot to add any bass to the mix.

Workforce - 1989 Workforce
These guys are in that same territory played by Diving For Pearls and 'So Fired Up' era Le Roux, though probably just lacking the finesse of those guys, playing in a more upbeat and hard rockin' style..

Works, The - 1989 From Out Of Nowhere
Another in a long line of Canadian melodic rock bands which deliver on anthemic driving rock. Coming off sounding like a combined 70's version of Loverboy meeting Coney Hatch.

World Trade - 1989 World Trade
World Trade, combine elements of their heroes Yes, plus snippets of Saga and Dream Theater, and yes the song structures are complex and in some parts overly drawn out just like the aforementioned bands.. They are formed from the ashes of the mid eighties prog band Lodgic, plus ex Stone Fury guitar slinger Bruce Gowdy.

Wrathchild America - 1989 Climbin' The Walls
Wrathchild America's debut LP 'Climbin' The Walls' was released early in the new year of 1989. If you're into that late 80's thrash a la Testament, Overkill etc, then Wrathchild should be your thing.

XYZ - 1989 XYZ
Great name for a band huh? And easy to find in the record store racks. Just head down to the back of the store where all the XYZ artists can be found.

Zion - 1989 Thunder From The Mountain
Though the band only survived for one album, its well worth having a listen, particularly for fans of late eighties hair metal.

Zurich - 1989 Incommunicado
Hi-tech west coast is the best way to describe the music found on 'Incommunicado' and I hear all sorts of influences including Mr. Mister, Toto, Double, Cutting Crew and ABC.
