Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to up and coming bands that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with Wildheart.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
WILDHEART: We’ve been a band since March 2015. We all came from other local bands that had called it quits or just fizzled out. Both myself [Adam] and Axel came from a band called Sevenskies, Kerry came a band called ‘The Lions War’ and Andrew has played in numerous Brisbane bands such as Sunsets, Arrivals and Never Lose Sight; and this is Jaya’s first band which is cute.
METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?
WILDHEART: We draw influence from so many different bands but we’ve been compared to old For The Fallen Dreams, The Ghost Inside, Counterparts even Architects which is mental to me as that band is super next level.
METAL ANARCHY: What can you say about your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?
WILDHEART: Our sophomore EP ‘We Are’ released this year on August 31st, it’s easily the most refined and focased music we have created as a band encompassing all the elements that have been the starting point for all our music since we started and we have a tight mixture of heavy riffs, soaring melodies and heartfelt lyrics.
METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?
WILDHEART: I don’t know what people expect at this stage but I can definitely say that we always give our all and we haven’t left the stage broken and are very sore for the next few days.
METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band in 5 years?
WILDHEART: If all goes well we can just keep writing and recording new and engaging music and continue to tour (hopefully overseas by that stage) until we all burn out our run out of money haha.
