Greta van fleet | From the Fires: Album Review
Greta Van Fleet is a literal band of brothers Josh, Jake, and Sam Kiszka, along with Danny Wagner. And they’re bringing back classic rock with their own style. With the release of their recent EP, From The Fires, on Nov. 10, the album is a living embodiment of the 70s. With only eight tracks, listeners will find that Greta Van Fleet is the resurgence of famous classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin.
Starting with “Edge of Darkness,” a soulful song with some edge, lead singer Josh Kiszka’s high-pitched yet raspy voice sings about the love given in the world and how giving love is power. The song has a slow and steady pace with resonant backing percussions from Wagner.
Also on the album is the band’s cover of Sam Cooke’s “A Change is Gonna’ Come,” which puts a rock ‘n’ roll twist on the famous soul classic. Although this is a song that has been covered many times, Greta Van Fleet’s rendition is different. The use of both an electric and acoustic guitar with the accompanying high-pitched belts from Kiszka and rock-gospel harmonies function to create a sound that is reminiscent of Queen’s style.
Greta Van Fleet is a refreshing return of the long-missed classic rock ‘n’ roll, honoring a 1970s milieu that their younger fans have missed altogether. This album is powerful, inspiring, and Greta Van Fleet is a band to watch out for.
