From Frontiers:

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to welcome Sweden’s Wildness to the label’s roster of melodic hard rock talent! The band are currently working on their label debut, and third album overall, for release some time in 2022. The band’s sound harkens back to classic hard rock with a focus on melodies and hooks, with their main influences being bands like Dokken, Whitesnake, DIO, FM, Extreme, Journey, and other diverse sounding artists under the rock umbrella. Crazy Lixx frontman Danny Rexon recently placed Wildness’ last album, ”Ultimate Demise” on his ”10 Awesome 21st Century Hair Metal Albums” list that he did for Loudwire. He described them thusly: ”Wildness are one of the new generation bands, probably taking inspiration from numerous previous bands on this list and combining it with more melodic metal, keyboards and, at times, even synthwave elements. Is this the future sound of the ”Hair Metal” genre? You tell me! But if it is, I sure won’t be complaining.”

Wildness was originally intended to be a studio project, but during 2014 developed into a traditional band. Soon after, they started rehearsing and performing live diligently and in September 2015 and January 2016 the self-produced singles ”Collide” and ”Turning The Pages,” respectively were released. The band recorded their debut album in 2016/17 and subsequently released their self-titled debut in late 2017.

In 2018, the band performed at a number of different festivals internationally and shared stages with Dokken, H.E.A.T, Dee Snider, Crashdïet, Dragonforce, Arch Enemy, Warrant, Vixen, and many more. They also had the honor to open for Pretty Maids and others during the course of the year. In 2019, the band began working on the follow-up to their well received self-titled debut. However, this work never came to fruition as vocalist Gabriel Lindmark left the band in the autumn of 2019 over musical disagreements.

In the spring of 2020, the band finally found the right replacement for their vacant vocal spot in Erik Forsberg (ex-Blazon Stone). Their second album, which was produced entirely by drummer Erik Modin, was named ”Ultimate Demise” and released in October 2020. The efford garnered the band some international attention within the melodic hard rock scene and showed continued growth musically. Wildness was also in 2021 featured in the international charity project ”Save The Noize” (where the soundtrack tune under the same name was written by the band’s main songwriter Erik Modin), along with Frontiers Srl-associated artists like Johnny Gioeli (Hardline), Åge Sten Nielsen (Ammunition, Wig Wam), Danny Rexon (Crazy Lixx), Michael Blanc (degreed) and many others.

The band eventually came to the attention of Frontiers Music Srl, arguably THE premiere label for melodic hard rock signings, who wished to have the band join their roster. Wildness are currently working on their third album, anticipated for release in 2022.

Lineup:
Erik Forsberg – Lead vocals
Marcus Sjösund – Bass
Adam Holmström – Guitars
Pontus Sköld – Guitars
Erik Modin – Drums

New video for 'Tragedy'.

From Frontiers:

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Swedish melodic rockers Wildness' new album, "Resurrection". The album, produced, mixed, and mastered by band founder, main songwriter, and drummer Erik Modin, contains 11 melodic rock masterpieces with one foot in the '80s and the other in the here and now. 

Wildness spent the bulk of 2021 planning and writing "Resurrection", the follow-up to their sophomore album “Ultimate Demise”. After the band signed a multi-album deal with Italian label Frontiers Music Srl in October 2021, the recording of “Resurrection” commenced with great enthusiasm. The band had spent plenty of time fine tuning the songs and were ready to nail them down in the studio. As an added treat on top of the already overflowing melodic rock goodness contained on "Resurrection", the album sees guest appearances by from vocalists Danny Rexon (Crazy Lixx), Hank Erix (Houston), Ludvig Turner (Reach), and Dani Hart on backing vocals. 

Wildness was formed in 2014 by drummer and songwriter Erik Modin, guitar players Adam Holmström and Pontus Sköld, and lead singer Gabriel Lindmark. The band performed live and released a few demos during the first two years of their existence before releasing their first two albums on the German label AOR Heaven. Prior to the release of their self-titled debut album in late 2017, bassist Marcus Sjösund stepped in as a full-time member of the band during the recording of the album. The debut album immediately became a great international success among fans of the melodic hard rock scene.

In 2018, the band performed at a number of different international festivals and shared stages with Dokken, H.E.A.T, Dee Snider, Crashdïet, Dragonforce, Arch Enemy, Warrant, 
Vixen, and more and also had the honor of opening for legendary Danish hard rockers Pretty Maids. In 2019, singer Gabriel Lindmark left Wildness and Erik Forsberg (ex-Blazon Stone) became their new frontman in the spring of 2020. The second album, "Ultimate  Demise", was released later in 2020 and produced by drummer Erik Modin. The song “Cold Words” caught on for the band and brought them to the attention of even more fans in the melodic rock  community. 

With "Resurrection", Wildness is armed with 11 undeniable tracks to take them to the next level. If you love melodic rock, then "Resurrection" needs to be on your 'must listen' list! 

Tracklisting:
1. Nightmare
2. Release The Beast 
3. Tragedy 
4. Love Resurrection
5. Best Of Me 
6. The Final Fantasy 
7. Lonely Girl 
8. The One And Only
9. Fading Sun
10. Dawn Of Forever
11. Eternity Will Never Fall

Line-Up:
Erik Forsberg - Lead vocals
Marcus Sjösund - Bass

I like the new track but I don't love it.  Especially on their first album, Wildness had a bit of a harder edge than what we get here.  I want that edge back.

Nice hooks to this mid-tempo song. Can't wait to hear if they have some heavier and faster tracks too. But I really like this.

Just saw it (and broke my rule of not seeing new videos, the only album I've pre-ordered this year, thankfully I didn't waste  my money on the latest Bruce Dickinson's H.E.A.T.) and I've already placed a bet that I could spin it 1000 times by the end of the week. Huuuge aging bouquet and replay value

The lyrics n the video could've been better but the tune is great though. Very nice. I really like their lead guitarist. The end guitar solo(licks) in the song 'Cold Words' still blows me away every time.

Pretty good album. A little patchy, and little safe. But it's good. Biggest issue, if pressed, would be that there's no real killer song here. A few keepers, but I'd prefer more. ;)

I like it. Safe, yes and I thought the guitars should have been a little more up front.

    • Can think of many off the top of my head. Over the years there have been some. Radio her player Missing You and Drive non stop in the 80's 90's and I hated both, but then 10 years later I started to quite like them. Most songs I am not a fan of would be on the radio, so I flick stations. Sometimes my wife will play Hunters And Collectors, Paul Kelly, Boom Crash Opera or other bands like them I don't like and I force her to change it. And then sometimes she'll make me turn off Sixx AM, Robbie Williams or Jackyl, who for some weird fucking reason she doesn't like...
    • Sounds good. Side project of Vanden Plas. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of All My Shadows, a quintet founded in 2020 by Vanden Plas members Stephan Lill (guitarist) and Andy Kuntz (vocals). Their debut album, "Eerie Monsters" will be released on February 17, 2023. Stephan Lill is the guitarist and musical backbone of the internationally known progressive metal band Vanden Plas. From the very beginning, he has been a huge influence on the sound and musical development of the band with his songwriting. Outside of Vanden Plas, Lill has also left his mark with his involvement in the rock operas/theater productions "Ludus Danielis," "Christ 0," "The Chronicles of the Immortals," "Everyman," and "Last Paradise Lost". Andy Kuntz is the charismatic and talented singer of Vanden Plas. With his distinctive voice, he moves effortlessly through all levels of vocal register and has established himself internationally as not only a rock/metal singer, but also as a lead in multiple rock musicals and operas. As the main lyricist and writer of the vocal melodies for Vanden Plas, he is the other musical mainstay and partner in crime with Lill in not only the band, but the aforementioned rock operas.    "The idea of recording and releasing some rock songs is something I've been thinking about for a while. While composing, I kept coming up with songs that have the spirit of the '80s. As a big fan of bands from that era, like Whitesnake, Ozzy Osbourne, Dokken, and the like, I still have a huge love for music from that time. The goal was to transport that classic music into the here and now. Hard rock with a powerful production, peppered with modern musical elements," says Lill. The original idea for All My Shadows was to have different vocalists appear on the album. Lill brought in his musical partner Kuntz to write the lyrics for the songs. "We know each other inside and out, have been working together for a very long time and very well, and are a perfectly attuned team," he says. But once Kuntz was on board to write the lyrics and had demoed the first four songs with Lill, it was immediately clear to both musicians that Kuntz was the man for the job. "Why look far and away for several good singers, if the perfect singer is already there?" Lill muses.   While Lill and Kuntz continued to work on more songs, the aforementioned demos found their way to Frontiers Music Srl, Vanden Plas' current record label. Frontiers were also immediately enthusiastic about those demos and immediately and enthusiastically asked the band if they could be involved with releasing the music. With the songs coming along nicely, the creative juices flowing, and a label home in place, Lill and Kuntz knew that a completely new entity had to be created, which would give the whole thing its own vibe and aura. When Kuntz came up with the name ALL MY SHADOWS, the both knew that "the band name perfectly reflects the dark colorful aura of the lyrics."   Keyboardist Markus Teske, who is also the owner of Bazement Studios and has been turning the knobs on the mixing desk for all of Vanden Plas' albums since 2002, was brought on board first. Beside being a superb engineer, he is a virtuoso at his instrument too. Then followed Franky R., a bassist who has played with renowned guitarist Michael Schenker, among others. And to keep it in the family, Stephan's brother Andreas Lill, also of Vanden Plas and who has a tremendous reputation for his musical experience and skill set, was brought in on drums to complete the line-up. Lill and Kuntz unanimously answer with a clear "No!" whether the participation of the Vanden Plas musicians will bring All My Shadows too close sonically to Vanden Plas. Both musically and lyrically, the differences are too great, too tangible, too obvious."Vanden Plas stands very much for progressive metal in all its variations, while All My Shadows stands very much for melodic hard rock. Musical points of contact are there, overlaps are not. All My Shadows have all the characteristics to have their own identity," says Lill.   Tracklisting:1. Silent Waters2. A Boy Without A Name3. Syrens4. Lifeforms5. Wolverinized6. The Phantoms Of The Dawn7. Farewell8. Devil's Ride9.

    • Who sings this one, mate? There's an awesome band called Poison that sing a song called 'Every Rose Has It's Thorn.' Check that one out to see if you like it. Absolute hilarity.  Anyway, I don't know what my answer to this thread would be. It would be more directed to non-rock songs I am subjected to unwillingly.  Picking popular rock songs that are a bit of a drag to hear, I'd probably go with something from Bon Jovi, like 'Wanted Dead Or Alive.' I never liked that song, so every time I hear it it reminds me that I never liked it. 'Livin' on a prayer' wouldn't be far off, but the problem is I do like the song. Just a tad over-saturated in consumption, though. 
    • No disrespect to Mr.AOR, or this thread with the title on this one. It's just a great track that fits the brief.     
    • every rose has it's thorns.   I didn't add quotation marks or capital letters, such is my distain for this abomination.
    • much prefer 1989 by Nestor
