W.E.T. Feat. JEFF SCOTT SOTO: Behind-The-Scenes Look At Making Of 'Earthrage' Album
January 18, 2018
A five-minute behind-the-scenes look at the making of "Earthrage", the third album from the Swedish/American melodic hard rock supergroup W.E.T., which features vocalist Jeff Scott Soto (SONS OF APOLLO, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, TALISMAN),guitarist/vocalist Erik Martensson (ECLIPSE, NORDIC UNION, AMMUNITION) and guitarist Robert Säll (WORK OF ART),is available below. The disc will be released on March 23 via Frontiers Records Srl.
W.E.T. — whose moniker is an acronym of the names of the acts that the group's core members are best known for (WORK OF ART, ECLIPSE, TALISMAN) — released its acclaimed self-titled debut album in 2009. The band's sophomore effort, "Rise Up", surfaced in 2013, followed by the live CD/DVD "One Live - In Stockholm" in 2014.
Now, the group — which also features drummer Robban Bäck (MUSTASCH) and guitarist Magnus Henriksson (ECLIPSE) — returns with an album that label owner Serafino Perugino claims is "by far one of the best records in Frontiers's history."
"Earthrage" track listing:
01. Watch The Fire 02. Burn 03. Kings On Thunder Road 04. Elegantly Wasted 05. Urgent 06. Dangerous 07. Calling Out Your Name 08. Heart Is On The Line 09. I Don't Wanna Play That Game 10. The Burning Pain Of Love 11. The Never-Ending Retraceable Dream
The "Watch The Fire" video can be seen below.
Soto told 100 Percent Rock Magazine last year that W.E.T. is "a project. It's not a band in the sense of touring and we get together and do the things that bands do. That's why we only have a handful of dates under our belts to date. We've never actually done a tour together, because it's three completely different bands that are just so busy all the time. And Erik is as bad as I am — Erik Mårtensson. He's in several bands and he's always producing and writing and jumping from one to the next. We've never tried to actually follow up as a band."
