White Crone's The Poisoner delivers Traditional Heavy Metal, with traces of prog, proto & doom. Featuring soaring Dickinsonian female vocals, epic dual guitars, thunderous drums & (most especially) iron fisted bass guitar, The Poisoner will take you "back to the day."
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.
WHITE CRONE has already been receiving rave reviews!
“Lisa has indeed a great voice, rich and powerful she dominates the compositions with ease.... This indeed sounds like a bow before the classics and the masters that did perform them in the days of old.”
Dennis Eikenkötter, Reflections of Darkness
“...a high quality sound that can easily compete with major releases... strongly influenced by mercyful fate, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden... The bass on this one is incredible”-

“Mann’s rich timbre and tone draws parallels to Ronnie James Dio... White Crone have delivered an album that is thoroughly enjoyable...”
Eric McCann, Metal Heads Forever
"Lisa undoubtedly understands the genre and its purest roots... a brutal and powerful honesty that is transmitted to the listener... Ronnie James Dio... I dare say that our protagonist is the female version..."
Daniel Vazquez Lobato, Subterraneo Webzine (Spain)
"Lisa's voice is incredibly strong... the bass is what dominates the spotlight, almost a tribute to bassists like Steve Harris and Geddy Lee... a high level album... first class production..."
