Wild Faith - Shabby Road EP

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 six track ep (This 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 songwriting is unbelievable.

Everyone one of the songs on this Ep just ooze class, Opening with 'What Ya Doin' an uptempo 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 out this Ep and is another great grooving rocker. This Ep is jammed 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 Zeppelins dormant crown, as they surly have the songs and the ability.

A classic rock band with a modern twist, a damn fine band with some great songs!

Very Highly recon mended!
