MyEndlessWishes_coverBorn in 2005 and hailing out of Sweden by Frida and Martin Viberg, whom got married in 2006 My Endless Wishes mix up a traditional metal style with the incorporation of a very melodic and symphonic overtone that snugs in closer at times to a more hard rock brand of style. Again those whom follow my reviews will note that I love the bands that come out of the Nordic regions, and My Endless Wishes fits in with the many great bands that come out of there.

On their self-titled debut they deliver a strong setting for future releases. Yes there are a lot of bands past and present that have had similar styles, like Evanescence, Nightwish and Within Temptation which are musical influences. Despite the similarities, what they give the listener is a high quality album, that breathes with purpose and passion, and captures the heart of the listener. Frida Viberg has wonderfully controlled vocals that are both haunting and engaging at the same time throughout the album, and holds her notes well. Continue reading »

NoPossessionBlues_coverThere has been some great music recently that I have reviewed that has firstly, A) come out of Sweden, and, B) from the Doolittle group AB. Here again is another example of that label where the band in question delivers high quality musicianship that is both innovative and powerful. No Possession Blues was formed in 2009 out of Vaggeryd, Sweden, and its key focus is live performances and writing their own brand of blues rock that is infused with rockabilly that fundamentally aims to entertain past the commercial arena.

Lead guitar work is handled by the talented Micko Ylinikka, who has a long history of music creation, that is embedded through his love for The Rolling Stones. Danne Pettersson takes care of the lead vocals, harmonica and rhythm guitar. He comes from the Swedish folk music scene, but his matured into an energetic entertainer whose stage persona has become big and bold. The recordings of the songs capture that energy marvellously, able to extend the imagination of a real ‘live’ performance taking place right where the music is playing. Continue reading »
