Greta Van Fleet

Profile:
Hard Rock band from Frankenmuth, Michigan (USA).

The band was formed in 2012 by brothers Joshua "Josh" Kiszka, Samuel "Sam" Kiszka, Jacob "Jake" Kiszka and Kyle Hauck. Hauck subsequently left the band, in Oct. 2013 and was replaced by Daniel "Danny" Wagner the same year. The band name was created when one of its members heard a relative mention Gretna Van Fleet, a resident of Frankenmuth; the variation on her name is used with her blessing.

Nothing and no one sounds like Led Zeppelin. Shame on you all! They are clones? WTF!?
Listen to their music and enjoy a new mega-blast band in the 21th century.
And don´t compare younger musicians with earlier musicians - That's not satisfy for no-one.

While the lead singer does sound very much like Robert Plant, I really don't think the music on From The Fires itself sounds like Led Zeppelin. Nothing even remotely sounds like Jimmy Paige or Jon Bonham. That said, Anthen of the Peacful Army sounds incredibly like Led Zeppelin.

Yeah, they do sound like Led Zepplin, but, they started writing music when they were barely teenagers. Of course, they'll show their influences. As they'll make more albums (assuming they stay together) their sound will drift to more originality, most likely. The songs by Led Zeppelin that sound like Greta Van Fleet is the hard rock Led Zeppelin songs such as Immigration Song, Whole Lotta Love, Rock and Roll, etcetera; though, Zeppelin has a wide variety of sounds. Greta has a limited variety of sounds. The point is, so did Zeppelin when they released their first album (disregarding Yardbirds). Greta has only released one album and some EP's. Basically, what I'm implying is GIVE THEM A CHANCE!

In these "rubbish music" days, we need more bands like this. Shut up to all the haters "you can´t emulate LedZepp" fans. I am a big fan and collector of Led Zepp and like i said in the beggining, with so much rubbish now we listen today a NEW BAND sounding like this is like a breath and a joyful moment to my ears. Full support to GVF!!!

Lots of musicians/musical groups are inspired by and emulate past artists. That is fine, and is generally a great thing - see Zeppelin themselves on how they took the blues and did something different with it, along with Jeff Beck, et cetera. But there is a point where emulation becomes mimicry and aping; pointless & childish imitation, masturbatory sousing in a cliched forgery. Greta Van Fleet are the embodiment of this. They are but a counterfeit (and dull) loudness. Is it listenable? Sure. It is enjoyable? Sure. But it is also fake. Folks wonder why 'rock' is at such a cultural low point, at least with respect to new rock music being made. Here you go. It is so wrapped its (brilliant) past, fully worth celebrating and listening to by the way, that it cannot get past what has been (even despite the best efforts of the Jack Whites, and others who are inspired by past music but don't pathetically mimic it.) Instead rock wallows in its past greatness and plastic forgeries, like this utterly pointless band, are hailed on high as its saviors and guiders on a path back to greatness, but who really sink the genre into even more pathetic clownish imitation and irrelevancy. I am sorry to be so harsh and verbose about this, but is it the truth, and I feel very strongly about it. By supporting pointless nostalgic garbage like this (and saying it will save rock music) you are doing serious harm to a genre (I assume) you love, which is, within a solely pop culture/popularity/cultural relevance context, in a bad way. There is so much interesting music both from the past and currently being made fully within the genre of 'rock,' that is absolute madness (and laziness) to fawn over plastic musical fakery and quackery instead. That is what I have to say. Go support current artists actually making interesting and new music, inspired by the past, but actually creative, purposeful, thoughtful, and original, and NOT pseudo-Led-Zeppelin rubbish.

I liked fastway and they never were as popular as GVF. Fastway also were all from previous groups...ie... Humble pie, Motorhead. I know the new music sounds as good or better then the current stuff we are hearing. Let's check back next year and see what happens. I see big things in my opinion.

Greta Van Fleet has fused together different musical influences to create something very special that takes you down roads that the great Led Zeppelin paved . This band is set for greatness and is a breath of fresh air in my ears
