Having signed to Frontiers following the release of their second album, ‘Ultimate Demise’ (2020), the recording of ‘Resurrection’ followed a period of fine-tuning its contents and then nailing them down in the studio. The finished record also sees guest appearances from vocalists Danny Rexon (Crazy Lixx), Hank Erix (Houston), Ludvig Turner (Reach) and Dani Hart as backing singers.
Wildness was formed in 2014 by Modin, guitarists Adam Holmström and Pontus Sköld, plus singer Gabriel Lindmark, with bassist Marcus Sjösund added during the recording of their self-titled 2017 debut album on AOR Heaven. That record had immediately become a favourite among fans of the melodic hard rock genre.
The following year saw the group perform at several international festivals, where they shared stages with Dokken, H.E.A.T, Dee Snider, Crashdïet, Dragonforce, Arch Enemy, Warrant, Vixen and Pretty Maids. 2019 saw Lindmark leave the band, to be replaced by Erik Forsberg (ex-Blazon Stone) for the recording of ‘Ultimate Demise’, which included the fan favourite ‘Cold Words’. ‘Resurrection’ sees Wildness armed with the material that will surely take them to the next level.
