WildeStarr – Beyond the Rain (2017)


Hailing from North America, today we have Melodic Progressive/Heavy Metal outfit WildeStarr and their superb full-length release “Beyond the Rain”. Perfectly delivering that old school Heavy/Power Metal vibe through the sultry vocals of London Wilde, this album is perfect for fans of bands like Accept and Doro, but that want a certain Power Metal edge thrown into the mix.

Opening with the melodic riffing of “Metamorphose”, we get the first glance of Dave Starr’s guitar skills and a preview of how well they mesh together with the other instruments to create memorable and epic-sounding songs. Tracks like “Beyond the Rain” and “Pressing the Wires” warm up the listener with catchy riffs and very commanding leading vocals.

As one of our favorite tracks, the highly engaging “Double Red” delivers some killer melodic passages and quintessential Heavy Metal vocals. Ranging from power ballads to faster pieces, songs like “Down Cold”, “Crimson Fifths” and “Rage and Water” allow the band to showcase their timeless sound and musical skills with tons of killer vocal leads, strong guitar work, and tight drumming.

Closing with the high-octane “When the Night Falls”, we are instantly taken back into the Glam/Hair Heavy Metal days by the epic vocals and catchy arrangements of this song. Overall, WildeStarr is one of those bands that keeps the old-school Heavy/Power Metal vibe alive with their excellent songwriting and knack for catchy songs. With almost 40 minutes of music, “Beyond the Rain” is the perfect continuation for the band’s illustrious career, pleasing all their fans and gaining plenty of new ones with its awesome music.
