Someone must have really missed this stuff: chesty, surging, over-the-top rock out of a time capsule from the early 1970s.Greta Van Fleet, a four-man band from Michigan, has been tearing its way through shows and festivals in recent years. Now, it has released its debut album, Anthem of the Peaceful Army.On the bands 2017 EP, From the Fires, there was no mistaking its main and nearly sole source: Led Zeppelin. It all came flashing back, as Joshua Kiszkas voice yowled, swooped, moaned and quavered with every maneuver he could mimic from Robert Plant, while his twin brother, Jacob Kiszka, flung guitar riffs and power chords or wailed in unison with the lead vocal the way Jimmy Page did. Their younger brother, Sam Kiszka, played busy bass lines that hopped between riff and counterpoint, goading Danny Wagner, on drums, to rumble bursts of triplets across the tom-toms and to land extra-hard just behind the beat, like John Bonham.That was a smart gambit. It exploited the nostalgia in the elder generation of music-business gatekeepers not just for classic rock but for the kind of musicianship and larger-than-life rock stardom that Led Zeppelin flaunted. Meanwhile, for younger listeners, there was novelty in seeing a band with nothing programmed in its sound and the freewheeling dynamics of an old-fashioned power trio backing an ornately unbridled singer. Openly derivative, half-fledged songs No stoppin at the red light girl / Cause I wanna get your signal, Joshua Kizka sang in Highway Tune werent necessarily a deal-breaker.
