Heed to the words of the Wise-one
Hungarian band, Wisdom is like a breath of fresh air, purely invigorating and quite underrated! They have been able to capture the brutal hearts for many when they opened for Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Saxon to name a few.
“For me the [number one] gig was when we opened for Iron Maiden. I am a great fan of the band and it was one of our dreams come true. Not that we even dared to dream about such gigs…” says Wisdom guitarist Zsolt Galambos.
More humble indeed and thoroughly successful, Wisdom walked away with an award from both Finland’s Eurovision Song contest and the Hungarian Music awards. Furthermore, Wisdom has been able to continue their suggestion or concept of the “wise-man” which prevails throughout their songs. As Zsolt elaborates, “The first thing when we’ve started the band was to find the right name for us. It had to be simple and yet succumb to a powerful meaning. Wisdom is an easy word to remember by anyone, but also has an influential meaning. At this time we began thinking about a concept story that we can work on every new CD. Wise-man represents all the wise and holy people who lived and shared their knowledge with us but has a mask on his face through which he cannot speak. This represents the people not listening to the old but time neglects wisdom.”
A fine band, detailed, professional and makes art for the sake of art! I recommend their latest album Judas released by Spinning Records! If you are in Wisdom’s range – go for a show or two; you will thank me later!
