Wild Rose are a band from Greece that plays a mixture of 80's melodic rock and hair metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Hit'N'Run" which will be released in October by AOR Blvd Records.
Keyboards start off the album along with some melodic riffs, solos and vocals and th e music has a very 80's orientated mainstream rock sound to it and the band also brings in a lot of back up vocals and catchy chorus'es and the keyboards also bring in progressive rock elements while the solos have that shred style that was very common 30 years ago.
There is a good amount of clean parts and power ballads present throughout the recording while the band also keeps around a great amount of harder tracks and all of the songs sound like they could of been recorded in the 80's and received plenty of radio time during that era and on some of the later tracks the guitar brings in more of a metal influence and mixes it in with a pop orientated form of hard rock and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Wild Rose brings back to a very melodic and AOR orientated form of 80's hard rock which also brings in a touch of hair and pop metal to create an album that is very retro and old school sounding but updating the genre for the modern day, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover relationship themes.
In my opinion Wild Rose are a very decent sounding mixture of melodic hard rock and pop metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "I'll be There" "Without Your Life" "Dont Walk Away" and "I Want your Love". 7/9 out of 10.
