W.E.T. Retransmission 19/1/21
The core W.E.T. trio of Jeff Scott Soto, Erik Mårtensson and Robert Säll have delivered another astounding record that epitomises what Melodic Hard Rock is currently all about with their latest album 'Retransmission', due out this Friday 22nd January, of which 'Big Boys Don't Cry is today's Video Of The Day. Their collaborative desire has always been to create a sound to drive the genre forwards, and, with the addition of powerhouse rhythms and a top notch production (courtesy of Mårtensson), their music is both classic and contemporary. Following the genre-defining 2009 self-titled debut, 'Säll' (the ‘W’ from Work of Art), Mårtensson (the ‘E’ from Eclipse) and Scott Soto (the ’T’ from Talisman) faced the daunting task of matching it. However, ‘Rise Up’ (2013) proved to be a stellar release, while their third opus, 2018’s ‘Earthrage’, further cemented their legacy. With these exceptional records already under their belts, this new album tops them all and is a milestone release.
