One look at the band name should tell you that White Stallions is a band heavily inspired by Saint Vitus. The man behind the music is Michael Schmidt, and he started the project to create lo-fi punky doom with a DIY aesthetic. This self-titled demo is his first release under the White Stallions banner, although he has also been creating music with a band called Olórin for a number of years.
This demo isn't going to blow you away with originality. The songs are energetic doom numbers with punk rhythms and vocals that sound heavily inspired by Wino. Although there are some awkward moments and this is far from a professional release, the original songs are actually pretty catchy. There is also a cover of The Obsessed's "Hiding Mask" that fits right in with the rest of the songs.
I don't think that this is an amazing demo and it has some obvious flaws and limitations that keep me from enjoying it more, but it should definitely appeal to people who like punky DIY metal or bands such as Saint Vitus, The Obsessed and Pentagram. This demo is available as a digital release or on a DIY cassette limited to 25 copies. If you're in need of a soundtrack for chugging PBR on lonely nights, this demo should do the trick.
