MY ENDLESS WISHES: "My Endless Wishes"
Label: Doolittle Group
Review by Martien Koolen
My Endless Wishes is a Swedish band formed in 2005 and eight years later they release their self-titled debut album. The music of My Endless Wishes can be described as melodic hard rock/metal with influences from bands like Evanescence, Within Tempation and Nightwish, which is mainly due to female singer Frida Viberg.
The opening song "Follow The Light" says it all, as it is a kind of well-known hard rock song with good guitar riffs/hooks and melodic vocals. "Lost Without You" has some symphonic, bombastic elements and therefore kind of reminds me of Nightwish, while "Stronger" is a mere straightforward rock song. "Once Again", a ballad, ends this album and it is a nice song but nothing special. In fact all the songs sound good, but I cannot stop thinking that I have heard these songs before, but then better... However if you like Scandinavian melodic rock/metal with female vocals, then My Endless Wishes might be a good album for you. I think that it will never turn up in my cd player again..
