During Mexican Revolution, Rosalio Mendoza (Del Diestro) survives by making and winning favors from both factions, the governmental forces and Zapata's Army. His hacienda welcomes everybody, and Mendoza is considered a good friend of his guests. Eventually, the situation becomes unsustainable and he has to take sides. Betrayal and deception overcome and Mendoza's dark side surfaces.
“Kill the King”, the debut release by WAMI has now been officially released in Europe and in North America via Metal Mind Productions. 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.
Recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra, Epiphany finds Vince Mendoza pursuing a typically subtle and engaging blend of classical and post-bop. Mendoza's composing style has always suggested that he would work well with an orchestra, and Epiphany confirms those suspicions, since it's never overblown — it's always evocative and quietly compelling, adding new elements to his music while staying true to its core elements. And with each listen, the record reveals more details and textures that weren't apparent the first time through, which only makes the entire album more intriguing.
