Wildheart : “No Love” CD & Digital 25th May 2019 Independent Release. Belgium Hard Rock band. It is pretty rare to hear such a band coming from a small country like Belgium. I must say it is a surprise and a beautiful one. Generally band coming from the north are more into modern or extreme Metal. Here we have a band recreating the eighties hairbands with some who kept the flame in the nineties.
After three years from their first album , they are bringing an awesome piece that worth a thousands love for those who like me miss those amazing years. Awesome cover artwork, excellent production, this album sounds like a masterpiece from the eighties but is actually now! Wildheart has captured the receipt of all those bands and mixed them to give us an amazing album.
While I was expecting a Swedish band to release such an album, it’s a Belgium one that kicks my butt with this piece of art. Produced by Joren Cautaers and mastered by swedish Erik Martensson, it’s with no surprise they will hit the charts on the top in a minute. As I review this album , the band is now on tour and keep conquering the fans around the world. What some used to call “Hair Metal” (metal heads always had long hair) is still alive and well in the scene. Proof is it also growing in Europe!
It is with no surprise their influences bleed through their compositions, yet not always easy to get as they have their own sound. Sometimes you will hear a bit of LA Guns, Skid Row, Poison, Motley Crue, Dangerous Toys, Giant, Survivor, XYZ, Danger Danger, Shark Island, BonFire, FM…. They have so many it’s is crazy how they sound like those early days. With just one album they are better than any compilation made such they have those energies and melodies from all those influences.
It is just a beautiful and stunning piece that blows your mind, you will jump and feel alive again! Wildheart is a brilliant band and know how to compose the best hit songs the eighties used to have. I am speechless.
