My Endless Wishes – “My Endless Wishes” (2013)

Label: Doolittle Group AB

Review by Tony Cannella

From Sweden, My Endless Wishes was formed in 2005. In 2009 they released the 9-song demo “Never Walk Alone” and four years later have just issued their self-titled debut. “My Endless Wishes” features 12-songs and 44-minutes worth of energetic hard rock and heavy metal with infectious hooks and melodies and lyrics that accentuates the positive over the negative.

The undeniably catchy “Follow the Light” gets things headed in the right direction and are followed by the heavier, more deliberate and bombastic “Cry For Deliverance”. The majestic “A Part of Me” is up next and is a melodic radio friendly treat with a solid rumbling guitar riff. Lead vocals are provided by Frida Viberg and her style is along the lines of Amy Lee from Evanescence – a band which My Endless Wishes site as an influence. The band keeps things coming at a rapid pace on songs like “Lost Without You”, “Angel” and “Waiting for a Sign”My Endless Wishes have released a good debut piece of work which should appeal to fans of Evanescence, Within Temptation and Nightwish. Musically, they are certainly along the lines of those bands, yet somehow I can also see this band finding an audience with fans of melodic hard rock as well.

Rating – 80/100
