Album Review: Modern Ancient Man by the band Holy Wow never stops  weaving you through a wondrous combination of ’60’s sounding surf riffs and dark, eerie Electro Goth flavored Rock. Dmitry Wild is the brainchild behind Holy Wow. Wild commented on his achievement in recording this album, “it’s my first conscious effort to record everything myself using Logic. I recorded and produced the whole thing.” Gary French recorded bass on the song “Nebulas” and Peter Breed recorded  keys on “Dreamland,” Nebulas,” “Have Fun,” and “Remember.” Wild calls upon French, Breed and drummer for live shows as needed.

BP: Black Plastic is myself (Kevin Grady) and producer/musician André Obin.

HOLY-WOW-Dreamland-Dmitry Wild-Jenniffer Claroscura

Roaring drum beats and a slick guitar riff are the perfect combo to introduce Dmitry Wild’s (ex-Wizard Sex) HOLY WOW‘s new single, “Dreamland.” Besides playing guitar and singing, this multi-talented singer/songwriter also produced the track! It’s always good to hear the evolution of a songwriter in his songs, specially in this case (in case you don’t know, Mr. Wild is also a 5 Star Author of  “Why Be Normal?” on Amazon). With a prophetic and deep voice he sings about a distant but yet reachable Dreamland through the eyes of a girl.
