WildeStarr is the combined talent of three of the most dynamic musicians in heavy metal today.
Dave Starr (Vicious Rumors, Chastain), on all guitars & bass, London Wilde on vocals (who many regard as highly as Rob Halford, Dio, and Geoff Tate), and powerhouse percussionist Josh Foster on drums. Over the course of three studio albums – Arrival (2010), 2012’s A Tell Tale Heart and now Beyond The Rain – WildeStarr have established themselves as the masters of their craft with melodic and aggressive metal full of drama, and conveyed via a huge wall of sound.
Husband and wife team Dave Starr and London Wilde have been friends for thirty years, and married for over fifteen now. This makes their songwriting and chemistry very special and unique in the world of heavy metal. WildeStarr’s new album Beyond The Rain takes the listener on a harrowing ride on the emotional roller coaster. Some might think it a concept album, but it is actually much more than that. The songs are London Wilde’s lyrical expression of pain, torment, hope, and love based on the real life tragic suicide of her brother Gary in 2012. Gary was a gifted musician who suffered the sad pitfalls of many others who pick up the guitar and dream of success in the music business. After his death, Gary essentially became a not so silent fourth member of the band, and his presence and spirit was deeply felt throughout the songwriting and recording process. Beyond The Rain contains ten tracks of classic heavy metal in the vein of Judas Priest, Queensrÿche, and Dio, complete with Dave Starr’s soaring guitar harmonies, pounding bass and drums, and out of this world vocal melodies and lyrics by London. The album will see the light of the day in December on Scarlet Records. Get ready for rain!
