Band Bio

Into the wild - this young stoner metal band hailing from osnabrück, Germany, will quickly conquer the ears and hearts of any audience with their gripping and passionate live performance.

This passion did not only give them the chance to play with idols such as AIRBOURNE, SEPULTURA, RED FANG and TRACER, but also to show their ever growing fan base the way back to their inner wild.

Dominating, raw bluesy vocals meet chunky, yet refined riffs which, in conjunction with an untamed rhythm section, deliver catchy songs yet without equal.

These five up-and-coming musicians are hell bent to make stages shake all across Germany.

The Band Members

Felix Franke - Vocals

Lee Frederick – Rhythm Guitar

Review:

So here is a brilliant Groove Metal/Stoner Rock Band from Germany you have to check out now. Into The Wild are quite frankly a band you cannot possibly ignore. Their début album – RESTLESS – is one huge slab of Hard-rocking vibes mixing Groove Metal, Blues Rock and Stoner Rock that shows you how talented these guys are.

First track – Red To Black – is a an almost 6 minute stomper that will have you rocking out in no time at all. Shades of AC/DC, Thin Lizzy come screaming you at full throttle. These guys maybe raised on a steady diet of legendary 70s/80s Hard Rock/Heavy Metal but their sound has a kick-ass modern Stoner Rock sound.

This is an album that deserves to be played on every jukebox the world over as it has such a huge sound that would go down a storm in rock bars and clubs across the globe. Into The Wild have a potent mix of different sounds you will be rocking out from the very first riff. Lead vocalist Felix has a great voice which gives this album a truly addictive edge though he is backed by up a phenomenal group of musicians who lay down some mighty riffs for Felix to build his vocals against.

Check out tracks – Eruption, Blackened Names, Sun and Owners Of Planets to show you what this band can do once they are in the mood to rock the fuck out. No-one can touch them on this form. This is pure balls-to-the-wall in your face Heavy Metal riffs for you to lose control over.

I think I have gone on long enough. Restless is a stunning début album from a truly talented band. And I advise you all now to check this band out. You won't be sorry. If you're into fast-paced Stoner Metal with a heavy dose of the blues then this is the album for you.

It's brilliantly produced and played by all involved. Plus the guys have the album for Buy Now Download on BandCamp now. So headover and download this brilliant album now. Donate if you can. But most of all – ROCK THE FUCK OUT!!

Excellent and Highly Recommended.
