Wild Faith are a classic
rock band hailing from Manchester, who count Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin and Free
amongst their influences. They began as four music students at Wigan and Leigh
College in mid 2008.
Wild Faith recently recorded a 6-track EP (Shabby Road) at Jaraf House Studios with producer John Kettle.
The EP manages to showcase
some of the various elements to this bands music. With an average age of just
21, the maturity in the song writing is unbelievable.
Everyone of the songs just ooze class, opening with 'What Ya Doin' an up tempo rocker, with plenty of tempo changes, and to be honest the standards set.
Next up is 'Cry For Me', which has a real classic feel to it very reminiscent of Free. 'Sweet Feeling' follows, a great grooving rocker, you can really hear the Zeppelin influence here!
'Its Alright' follows, and has a slightly more commercial feel to it, again a great song. 'Don't You Leave Me' is up next and is a great blues-rock ballad ala the likes of the almighty Led Zeppelin. 'Crazy Things' closes and is another great grooving rocker. This EP is jam packed with great songs, and I'm really looking forward to hearing a full-length album from these lads, maybe they are the new heirs to Led Zeppelin's dormant crown, as they surely have the songs and the ability.
A classic rock band with a modern twist, a damn fine band with some great songs! Very Highly recommended!
