The self-titled debut release of New Yorkers WILDSTREET in 2009 received rave reviews around the globe.

Their glorious Def Leppard inspired affair with a hint of sleaze/glam, was one of the great surprises that year.

Now in 2011 WILDSTREET have just released their sophomore effort, a 5-track EP, “Wildstreet II …Faster…Louder”.

 

Wildstreet sound has changed slightly, and moulding themselves into a unit that best resembles Kix, Motley Crue and Def Leppard circa 'High And Dry'. The attitude and the energy is certainly here, and across the five tracks they let it all hang out.

 

Starting things off is "Shake It" that cranks things up from the get-go. If you like the riffing from bands like Kix or Sweden's hard rock heroes Bullet you'll love this. Big gang chant vocals on the chorus provide maximum impact.

"Poison Kiss" touches the sleaze genre in a slight way, with the slide guitar pushing this song into early 90's territory. Once again the harmonies show some whoop-ass chops. A very commercial, catchy tune.

Ramping the tempo up a few notches, "Hot Lixx" is less about hot women but more about the trials and tribulations of a kid getting his first guitar and learning how to play. To keep the rhyming scenario going, this song could be a Kix offcut!

 

I feel an early Van Halen / Def Leppard meets AC/DC style with "Cocked And Ready". The riff is one straight out of the Angus Young cookbook, though Erik Jayk's vocals sounds more like '70s era Aerosmith.

"Can't Stop The Rock" is probably the closest in feel to the debut album material, the production is a bit more spacious, the arrangement close to 'High N Dry' period Def Leppard. This track is made for the arenas.

 

 

This EP is another winner for WILDSTREET.

"Faster…Louder..." is a perfect party 'have a good time' collection of songs.

Their mix of straight ahead non compromising fun hard rock and singalong choruses makes this EP so easy to love.

Hopefully we'll see a full-blown CD release sometime soon.

So far...this is only available as a download. YOu should be able to get a physical copy by spring.

 

Wildstreet also has some new members. They played their first gig together this past weekend in NYC. Seems as though all went really well.

 

Recently Wildstreet had their song "Cocked and Loaded" in the newest MTV "Real World: Las Vegas".

 

 

ALSO...I was talking with Eric last night and was told.. TONIGHT FEB.10, 2011 Wildstreet should be appearing on the Kimmy Kimmel Live Show.

Heard a bit of these songs. Not sure the new direction is for me personally, but they still sound pretty cool. I did prefer the more melodic side they showed on their debut, though. Hearing the tunes actually reminded me of a thread Captain Howdy was posting in the other day, about Def Leppard going back to their pre-'Pyromania' days. One could draw the comparison that Wildstreet's debut sounded like 'Hysteria'-era Def Leppard whereas this one sounds like 'High N' Dry' era... roughly.

 

I don't know if the samples I heard are of a finished product or not, but I must say the production job sounds sensational.

Definitely not as good as their debut, but still pretty solid. I ended up burning three out of the five tracks. It's available on Itunes for those interested.

    • Lyric video for the new song:    
    • No replies in this thread, really? These guys deserves your recognition, absolutely quality stuff!    
    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.
