Where I Stand lyric video

To all the doctors, nurses, delivery drivers, police, etc, thank you!
To all the toiletpaper raiding and shop crazy nitwits… your life is a lie 😉

From 2018 album Different, this track about a burning world.
Stay safe and healthy everyone! Also available online and on all major streaming platforms

Hello to a new lyric video!

Here a track that many mums and dads will be able to relate to. Or just another chance to get to know our latest album that is way too good to be ignored 🙂
Different was released in 2018 and the CD is available from our label and all formats are available in all good stores and platforms.

Drum play through of “Or The Same!”

A year ago we released our Different album. To celebrate we now present you a drum play through video of the track “Or The Same!”
Disclaimer; video is shot of the first take, but that did not end up on the album. Still impressive to see Hans working his way through a track he hardly knows, with only a metronome and some guitars as reference…

More Different reviews arriving:

chinawhite - differentStrangely enough the album keeps picking up new reviews. But when they are good, you will not hear us complain! Follow the links to read them:

First one is from Sea Of Tranquility, where writer Steven Reid hands it a 3.5/5 saying “Hopefully Different finds Chinawhite fighting fit and reinvigorated, because having to wait nine years between albums isn’t ideal. That said, it has been worth the wait”

Next up is Rock Hard (SK). Writer Erik Nadudvari shows his appreciation for the album with a 4/5 star review, saying “we have a vibrant new album with pounding guitars and dense bass, plus even more guitars and keyboards to enhance the mood of the entire collection”

Thank you Steven and Erik!

More Different Reviews

chinawhite - differentUK site Zeitgeist – the Rocker, had this to say about our album:

Rock Company

Another release from the men who never sleep. Yes, Peter Cox (not that one) and Phil Vincent have made another record to go with all their CranstoN / Forest Field endeavours.

Chinawhite, though, is all about the songs of Peter Cox. With all the vocals taken care of by Vincent and the drums coming from Praying Mantis man Hans in´t Zandt they’ve certainly put together a quality product. It’s mainly eighties styled melodic hard rock but they’ve also thrown in a few prog elements as well. It would be no surprise to find some mid-period Asia albums in the collection of Mr Cox.

They kick things off with one of the album highlights – ‘Kiss Of Fire’ – which is as hard rock as they get. The prog starts to arrive with ‘Hello To The World’ and from then on they mix and match as they please. When it works, it’s really enjoyable, although a couple of songs just miss. And just to reinforce the prog credentials the album closes with an eight minute instrumental. Hey! It’s my album and I’ll do what I like. A good one.

Thank you mr. H.!

And Dutch Magazine Aardschok wrote about it too. Some mistakes from the writer, but a 7/10 coming from them is not half bad 🙂

More reviews for Different

chinawhite - differentTime for a review update! Slowly but surely the reviews are coming back to us. So here an overview of several more recent ones:

First one from The Midlands Rocks (UK). Writer Brian McGowan uses words like vertiginous, ferocious, dreamy and rewarding, we think it is safe to say he liked it. Thank you Brian!

Writer Dmitry Epstein from DMME always has a great way with words so his review is not only positive, but also entertaining on other levels. Thank You Dmitry!

French Site Metal Integral also wrote a piece. And with 4.5 / 5 we could not be more happy! Here is the English translation:

CHINAWHITE is a Dutch group founded in 1987 and still includes three of its original members. Their music can be summed up in a rather melodic hard rock. The ensemble is pleasant to listen to, it is well sung, the guitars occupy the sound space (Money ), the sometimes powerful drum provides a solid rhythmic base ( Kiss Of Fire ). I am having a lot of difficulty to make a criticism. Even the ballad Hello To The World is doing its little trick … 
But I think Differentwill struggle to stand out because too much of a classic on many aspects. Indeed, it is obvious that the style practiced here is for a specific audience, rather rooted in the 80s. I fear that this category of music lovers prefer alas to delve into their classics than to try to find a group little known, even if it has some assets. Hard reality … A correct album that will be too quickly stored for a long time … 

Thank you Noctus, fingers crossed people do know where to find us 😉
