"Greybeards​ are back with their second full length album ​For The Wilder Minds​. If your a fan of good old simple rock music then you’ll be wondering why you’ve not heard of these guys before. The Swedish four piece have managed to create an album that is an alternative melodic rock and is super infectious. Oh and there’s not a grey beard in sight!

The lead track of the album is ‘Fast Asleep’ pulls you straight in with that catchy riff that makes you want to keep listening and it’s certainly worth it. With a chorus that is written to be played in arenas and sing along with its the perfect start to the album. As the album progresses into the next track ‘One In A Billion’ you can start to really hear the talent this young group has. As the band takes on a heavier sound and gone are the melodic vocals but this just shows the diversity that Greybeards promises. ‘Cold December’ showcases just another sound that these guys can pull off as it takes on a darker theme that is more thought provoking than the previous tracks. The gritty vocals on this track stand above the beats and rhythms and allow you to really hear the lyrics. Sticking with a darker feel is ‘Peace Of Mind’ which goes back to the more melodic sound but is certainly less light hearted than the beginning of the album. Each of these tracks is no less impressive than any of the others and allows you to hear a band that is diverse and full of talent.

For The Wilder Minds ​is one of those albums that will propel Greybeards in their career and being on ​Planet Rocks ​’One To Watch’ radar as well as ours certainly gives them an advantage."

Score: 9/10

Review from Rock ´n´Load magazine




Quote from Grande

"Greybeards are a newcomer from Sweden, which started in 2012. Three years later the band releases its debut album, entitled “Longing to Fly”. The band consists of young guys who are all in their 20s. Listening to the album, it became obvious to me that they guys are quite focused on what they wanna deliver.
“Longing to Fly” blends classic rock, rock & roll, modern rock, pop-rock & alternative rock altogether. The band’s influences vary from Foo Fighters, to The Hellacopters (Imperial State Electric) and Graveyard among others. At times the rocking moments of Rush comes to my mind too. The sound is rather rockin, “dirty” and fresh – not “retro” whatsoever, as the current trend is.
I like it when the guys follow the dirty rock & roll and classic rock path more, like in “Memories”, “Let It Out” or “We’ll Never Die”, their more contemporary attempts are not my cup of tea. I think that old rockin’ attitude with the fresh sound suits them better, but that’s my personal opinion. Undoubtedly, Greybeards is a gifted young act, which will grow better in time and will mature over the years. Their first release is enjoyable and I’m positive they have what it takes to go further… it’s totally up to them. Time, hard work & live shows can and will work for their own benefit…"
