Guys, I am sooooo excited! This is like the culmination of most of my metal dreams for many years now.

First, Guardian+Whitecross announced they would have a new version of "Never Gonna Say Goodbye" by Guardian, which thrilled me to no end!

Now, today April 10, they have announced that they are re-recording "In The Kingdom" by Whitecross. I am thrilled with this news as it is my most favorite Whitecross song.

Awesome!

Hope that they continue to make money so it can possibly get more songs added to it!

In The Kingdom is far and away the best ballad Whitecross ever did, and the rough version that was posted with Jamie singing and Rex playing acoustic guitar sounded excellent to me.

To be honest, In the Kingdom is the only whitecross ballad I care about. Funny thing, when I am in the mood for ballads, I usually go for Guardian.

BTW, cool to see that they are doing Never Say Goodbye, as well, but I would rather having a full hard rock album.

Another thought that comes to mind is: though we all would like to have at least one brand new song, we got to understand that, the main porpuse of this project is to show the availability of the band for concerts and tour. That's why they want to make an ep of redone songs, to make it fast and simple. So, new songs are off the table for now.

I don't mind it, as long as they come to Brazil for a concert.

They shared a snippet of the remade "The Rain" and it sounds fantastic! It's got a scorching solo!

Got my download this morning, anyone else got this and if so what do you think?  Let's hope this is the start of something.... maybe original music in the future.  Enjoying this release for the time being.  Guitar guy

The Rain sounds great, except the chorus. They butchered the chorus! But everything else about that song is awesome here. Enough is Enough is solid. Top of the World was an unexpected choice, but sounds really good. The one new song - Spanish Castle Magic - is okay. It doesn't really sound like the other songs on this album.

Overall I'd give this a 6 or 7 out of 10.

Spanish Castle Magic, I believe, is a Hendrix remake

This is a great version of that song. I forgot how good a song that really was. Outstanding message. This acoustic version works really well.

Think Jamie Rowe's voice really suits this 'In The Kingdom' perfectly, sounds awesome!!!  Probably my favourite song on this record.  I don't really care for the last 2 tracks but overall would give this EP a 7 out of 10 as I really only enjoy the first 5 songs.  Like FOJ said the chorus on 'The Rain' doesn't sound as good as the original but never the less is still a good song overall.

I'm really digging the entire album (well not the Spanish language track so much).  While a little different vibe than the rest of the tracks I found the cover of Hendrix tune quite enjoyable as well.  Would be cool to hear them do even more covers.
I also agree with everyone else concerning the acoustic version of "In the Kingdom" it works really well in this arrangement.

If they would write some band parts where the rap stuff was and actually sing that, it could be cool.  The opening riffs, the parts where Scott sang, and the chorus were all cool.

I am listening to this for my first time right now.  They definitely nailed "Enough Is Enough".  "The Rain" doesn't quite feel right on the intro but comes into its own during the main part of the song.

I realize that this record was most likely made to guage to see if there was enough interest in doing a new album.  I am disappointed that they didn't include anything new.  I do hope that this does lead to something more in the future, though.

Oh no I didn't pledge/participate!

Is there any other way to download the EP, like Itunes or Amazon?

If you go to the store section of their webpage it looks as if they are planning to have both digital and cds available in the future.

The band nails the Whitecross songs for the most part.  I didn't like "In The Kingdom" as they kept it acoustic and you never got the hair metal ballad feel.  Also, Jamie's voice is sounding strained on it.

I got the impression that Jamie was struggling with his higher end on the vocals.  If they do any new material in the future, he definitely needs to stay in the middle range where his true power lies these days.

Well, the EP is out, and they are working on the other goods.

But what about the concerts???

After all, the opportunity of playing live was the main reason for this campaign.

I am going to guess that the opportunities to play live didn't materialize with them just rehashing older songs.  They NEED to do a full length album of all new songs with maybe a couple of redone classics on the record.

Agreed. Apparently they have chosen the easiest way.

But I still have high hopes for them to come to Brazil, as it all started with a Whitecross and Guardian concert request from Brazil (their website says so).
