Truth be told, I have not heard of Walking With Giants until I got an invite to review the new album titled Worlds Unknown. At first I was not thrilled to put time and effort into a diving into new material that I was not aware of. The best thing I can say at this moment is I feel totally blessed that I was introduced to this music. Wow, what a breath of fresh air to start off the new year. With all of the negativity in the world today that you see on the news, this is the ray of sunshine you need to put your thinking back into balance. This is hard rock with a happy feeling. You just feel better after listening to it. Perfect driving music!
Reviewster Rating: On the first listen, I give this album 4.5/5 That’s how much it impressed me. From not knowing this band previously to 30+ minutes later feeling like I found gold. Thanks to Gary Noon for making this happen.
The Force Awakens with Worlds Unknown
“It’s about thinking in ways you haven’t thought prior,” he remarks. “Instead of succumbing to the constant influence of negativity, you look inside yourself, find a solution you’ve never tried before, and end up in a new place you’ve never been. It’s aboutfinding a different perspective.”
“Different Voice” represents that perspective. Kicking off with a hypnotic guitar harmony and booming drum beat, the track explodes into an undeniable and unforgettable chant on the chorus.
“All we hear on social media and on television is horriblethings going on in the world,” he sighs. “If you listen to this stuff, you’ll believe the world could end at any second. It’s all negative doom and gloom. I’m not that kind of guy. I’m a positive person. Out of this negative shit, we need to turn tail and embrace a different voice, encouraging each other instead.”
