The ORIGINAL "Wild Fire"
Back when Whine Or Live Fearlessly (listed as W.O.L.F. here) was first starting out, Taylor Colo'n tried setting the bar by writing "Wild Fire". The song had potential, but the band focused on other hidden material at the time. Demos for songs such as "Psycho", "Remembrance", and "Road Rage". But while the song was dropped from the bill, Taylor sat down and talked about his feelings for the original demo.
"Well...it's sounds worse than s**t [the quality]. Haha! But, damn, it's refreshing to here it. It's unbelieveable that it's been 4 years since I sat down and wrote those riffs. Simplistic? Yes. But so what? You ever hear 'Paranoid' by the classic metal band, [Black] Sabbath? Of course you have. Who hasn't? I can play it with my eyes closed. Anybody could. It's easy. In fact, I think the entire song only has 4 riffs. That's badass! That's what I was going for with this. A slower paced, simple heavy metal song. We weren't trying to do thrash metal until last year. But I remember the day we recorded 'Wild Fire'. It was me, Matt, and another guy, named Tony. We used a Playstation Portable to record, and we just kept the audio. And that was it! I hardly knew a thing about music. But the song still sounded cool. That's why I want to go back. I want the original music to be given another chance. I don't expect to see it on any albums anytime soon, but I won't let it die."
The young metal head went on to state that the original material would be re-written with a similar feel to the unreleased W.I.V. song, "Nothing to Me", which is planned to be on the band's debut album.
Taylor finalized, "I was a junior in high school. The lyrics were written, but I accidentally left them in the lunch room one day. My heart SANK. Yeah, they weren't there when I went to retrieve them, either. Thank God! We had already recorded that demo. I just listened to it over and over and typed the lyrics up. As you can see with the 'Thrash and Burn' version, the lyrics are identical, nearly, with a few added paragraphs. I was proud to put out the 'Thrash and Burn' version with these lyrics, and I hope that both songs will be loved in the future."
