Product Description

Wilderness Heart, the new album by Black Mountain, is packed with succinct rock songs that pulse and pound with startling precision: it pummels you and you ask for more. This is arguably the band's tightest, most concentrated venture, but there's still plenty of raw rock energy at work. "It's our most metal and most folk oriented record so far," songwriter Stephen McBean says. "I'm not gonna say it's our best record or the album that we always dreamt of making 'cause that's what everyone says. It's all about where we were at the time the machines were rolling.

I bought Black Mountian's second album, "In The Future" because it was on a lot of people's "best of" lists for 2008. And, of course I liked it when I listened to a preview. Wilderness Heart is different but it's better. It's hard to put down who they sound like but generally Classic Rock would be correct. This album is more acoustic and the guitar riffs are great. A great band from Vancouver.

If you're looking for something new with a 70's sound I recommend this album.

Wilderness Heart by Black Mountain
excellent album by one of my favorite rock bands. this album gives you so much to listen to, great vocals, guitars and drumming. you have to listen a few times to appreciate it, well i did. it's mellow but hard at the same time. they dabble in the folk/pschodelic, a little more. i like that they used the female vocalist more this time around. check it

Black Mountain - Wilderness Heart Sept. 14 2010
By Andrew Vice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's hard to look back to the days of classic rock for inspiration without being pegged as a mere imitator. Black Mountain are clearly disciples of genre forefathers like Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, but they bring a certain harmonious folk element to their work that helps to keep it from being mere derivation on the themes of those bands. Naturally, you're going to find that kind of heavy stomp that is synonymous with Zeppelin and Sabbath, but Black Mountain do things their own way, and they are given to long, proggy outings over tighter rock 'n roll. Wilderness Heart is a blend of heavier, driving rock songs and ominous folk numbers. Most songs feature both of the bands' singers, both talented and carrying the necessary bravado for their roles, but I wish that when singing in unison that they would sing more harmonies, where instead they are usually singing the same melody in a different octave.

Head On Nov. 8 2010
By Ian M. Rijsdijk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I love the growth of this band. From Black Mountain through In the Future to this new album, I like the expansion of their sound. Evolution implies some kind of improvement, but that's not the case: the previous albums were excellent. This album is definitely more straight-edged, a rock album with driving songs like Let Spirits Ride and slower, heavier tracks like Rollercoaster. However, the gorgeous harmony and counterpoint of Stephen McBean and Amber Webber's vocals comes to the fore more than in previous albums (on tracks like Buried by the Blues) like a heavier version of The Decemberists (but not like the heavenly power of Kylesa). There's an awesome 70s feel all over this album with the right amount fuzz in the guitar and great layering of organ and synth. A really great album, and one of my best of 2010 so far.

Black Mountain's Wilderness Heart in 5 Sentences or Fewer Sept. 14 2010
By Adam - Published on Amazon.com
On Wilderness Heart, Black Mountain has further matured from their second release In the Future. This album finds them balancing the heavy Sabbath/Zeppelin/Judas Priest-sounding riffage of "The Hair Song," "Let Spirits Ride," and "Wilderness Heart" with the more delicate "Buried by the Blues," "Radiant Heart," and "Sadie." There's even "Old Fangs" which could have been recorded by corralling The Cars, Weezer, and The Smashing Pumpkins into the studio and locking the door. While the experimentation and heavy 70's psychedelics seem to have been scaled back on Wilderness Heart, it's still brutal and beautiful. This band knows how to rock.

psych-tinged West Coast 60s/70s style rock/metal Nov. 4 2010
By Charlie Quaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
On their 3rd album, this Canadian band plays with an authentic & powerful 60s/70s West Coast
rock vibe that succinctly combines hard, crunchy riffs with psych-tinged metal, power and grace.
The guitars punch you in the face with fists of hard-assed love, while the male/female vocal
harmonies caress your brain, and old school keyboards ride the wave of potent retro-rock that
incorporates bits of punk/metal/Americana & bong drippings. Overall, this is an incredibly well-
played, genuine, ass-kickin' guitar rock album. Members are also in Pink Mountaintops, Lightning
Dust. You'll hear bits of Sleepy Sun, Black Sabbath, Big Brother & the Holding Company, Fuzzy
Manta, Velvet Underground, Led Zeppelin, The Warlocks, Queens Of the Stone Age, Quicksilver
Messenger Service.
Good rock album, studio engineering lacking. Jan. 19 2014
By Bimmerman2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Decent rock album. It's hard to find anybody making music like this anymore, most of the crap now is someone chanting/reciting lyrics about the ghetto ran through ridiculous amounts of auto-tune. Only complaint I have about this album is the overuse of compression, it's very heavily compressed. Some engineers really seem to like doing this lately, I think it smashes the sound, they think it makes it seem louder.
