Wildness - signs with Frontiers for album #3


Recommended Posts



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.

    • One of my all-time favorite Christian rock-ballads.
    • I don't mind at all. That was the only way I could make you say, "Oh God!" without it being blasphemy. 
    • For the record, I would totally check out a "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread. Also, when I first glanced at this post, I thought it read, "Do you want to Bang your Libertarian?" and I immediately thought, "No way in hell does anybody here want to bang Leykis." 
    • Agree...that sounds better. Still potential here and Erik makes it listenable.    This first single could've been pretty good with a different structured chorus so hopefully other tunes are a bit better. Still not sure its going to be melodic/catchy enough for my tastes which is generally my problem with this  genre.
    • My apologies, cob, but didn't Cody say "the only thing Atheists all have in common is we do not subscribe to the myth of the deity, god or higher power, of any kind, this is it, then we are worm food, not all Atheists subscribe to the same meaning or philosophy, we don't all believe in the same science, or anything, I personally feel as though..." Sorry if I misread, but that doesn't really sound like a group that are fundamentalist in their certainty. In fact, none of that really sounded to me how you describe it.  What does intrigue me, though, is that you acknowledge that we are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant... yet religious folk believe that there's a god out there somewhere and his only concern is whether this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant follows the gospel or not? And not only this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant, but every single other speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant that has ever existed? Of the entire universe throughout the entirety of time, all this god really cares about is whether each speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is following the gospel. Because if not, that speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is sure as heck going to hell. Sounds like the type of being I'd like to devote my single human life to.  Sorry dudes, like I say, I'm not an atheist (that I know of), and I'm sure as heck not a religious man. What do you call someone who is just honest enough to admit that I don't have a clue how we started, or why we are, or what will happen when we're dead? And I also believe that no one alive now, or whom has lived before us, has these answers either. Nor will they ever have them. No matter how steadfast someone is in their belief of whatever they believe, no one will ever be able to answer, with 100% certainty, those questions. 
    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it.
