Come 2022 and its album #3 from Swedish melodic rockers Wildness, now signed to Frontiers upon the closure of the AOR Heaven record label earlier this year. After a great start with their 2017 debut, the trail went slightly cold for me when their second attempt ‘Ultimate Demise’ came out in 2020. The band lineup is the same as the second album, so let’s see what changes have occurred (if any) now that they have a new home.
These guys I would consider to be a milder (not wilder eh?) version of Dynazty, quite similar in ways except for the speed, or lack of. Most of their songs work, without dinging that bell inside of your head.
‘Nightmare’ and ‘Best Of Me’ are the two tracks that are front-loaded with keyboards and as a result stand out more for me. ‘Release The Beast’ riffs hard throughout and is a good template for the band. ‘The Final Fantasy’ also operates at the harder end of the spectrum. ‘Lonely Girl’ and ‘Dawn Of Forever’ opt for the ballad end, neither particularly noteworthy.
‘Resurrection’ wasn’t a bad album by any means, but it just didn’t set off my wowometer like the debut album did. Maybe I’m a bit burnt-out listening to Swedish stuff lately, or maybe it’s the bias I have against Frontiers releases? But then again they’ve released the excellent Grand album so what would I know.
