There is a new wave of classic rock bands that are making some big noise in the music scene. Bands like The Answer, and Wolfmother have experienced new levels of success. More and more new bands are strutting their stuff with a sound that has more in common with 70’s hard rock, than the latest sounds of today.
Whitefire from the U.K. is the latest band with that great classic rock sound. Judging from the sound of three song E.P., Whitefire is a band that will be going places in the near future.
On the three songs on this EP, I can hear the influence of bands like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Thin Lizzy. It is that riff heavy sound that takes me back to hard rock’s roots. It excites me to hear a new era of bands influenced by this awesome era of rock.
Whitefire shows that they can deliver the goods with this EP. Jon Sibley is a solid vocalist, and the dual guitar sound of Chris Mills and Stephen Mee is one that I can really get into. My only problem after listening to the three songs here, is I am left wanting more. I can’t wait to hear a full length album by these U.K. Rockers.
