This new project is a love letter to traditional metal music, the likes of Iron Maiden, Dio, Judas Priest, and Mercyful Fate. These bands were a daily part of my life as a youth, and playing along with their records was how I learned to play bass and sing. Lisa Mann made a career as an award winning blues artist, but never lost her love of metal music. Growing up in the mosh pits of the 1980's, she was inspired by bands such as Iron Maiden, Mercyful Fate, Black Sabbath, Manowar, Dio and more. A mostly one-woman project, White Crone is a love letter to this grand era of metal, and a lyrical homage to mystical storytelling traditions of yore.
