Swedish/American melodic hard rock supergroup W.E.T., which derives its acronymic moniker from the first letter of each of its three member's flagship bands, formed in 2008 after Italian record label Frontiers asked keyboardist/guitarist Robert Säll (Work of Art) and guitarist Erik Mårtensson (Eclipse) to each contribute six songs to a new project with Talisman vocalist Jeff Scott Soto.
The results can be heard on their well-received 2009 eponymous debut. Road-tested and operating like a well-oiled machine, the newly minted band decided to ditch the individual approach and start writing as a unit for 2013's Rise Up, which was followed in 2014 by the live CD/DVD One Live: In Stockholm. December 2017 saw the release of the single "Watch the Fire," in anticipation of the arrival of the group's third studio effort Earthrage, which dropped in March 2018. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
