CD Reviews

A metal onslaught
S. Smith | Sanford, ME United States | 06/14/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Once I heard 'Shadow' I was hooked. These guys keep classic metal alive and well. Even with thousands of metal bands out there, these guys manage to have a somewhat distinct sound. This was the first disc I purchased from them a couple years ago and the other 2 albums are just as metallicious."
Bark at the moon

"You can be forgiven if, after hearing the 2000 self-titled debut from Sweden's Wolf, you come away thinking you just discovered some long lost gem from the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) era. From its not terribly impressive production job to the high school art class cover artwork; this fast and furious blast of retro metal almost screams Neat Records circa 1982.

Equal parts Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Saxon, and Diamond Head, Wolf put metal's compartmentalized labels aside in favor of an old school sound that can only be described as heavy metal! The band's debut merges classic metal elements - lightning riffs, dark subject matter, and dynamic vocals - with a modern sensibility sort of like Children of Bodom's (minus the growls and keys). It was just such a welcome change of pace to hear a straightforward metal album after so many bands went out of their way to sound progressive, or power, or prog/power, or whatever. Wolf is METAL. End of story.

Wolf has of course gone on to issue three more albums (as of this writing), all of which are progressively more polished and impressive. Still, this rough and raw debut has an undeniable character that gets to the heart of what metal is all about, and will always have a special place in my denim and leather heart.

And all because Iron Maiden doesn't bring out a new studio a

"...that's the reason why WOLF formed in the first place! If WOLF were around in the 80's they'd be right up there withe likes of Maiden and Priest... these guys deserve a larger audience... so make sure you spread the word around!
