I was a bit cranky last week, waiting for various things to happen with the website transition. God it's good to be back. Didn't Gary Glitter sing a song like that? dogrun

Wolf - 2004 Evil Star


WOLF - EVIL STAR (2004, MASSACRE RECORDS)
Niklas Olsson - vocals, guitars
Mikael Goding - bass
Daniel Bergkvist - drums


Background
You hear about bands along the way, such as Wolf, who have received high praise with previous efforts. Massacre have hyped the hell out of this Swedish trio's third full length release. Does it match up to the hype. Not in my opinion. Sure, Wolf are a solid band who can write the odd catchy metal tune, but on a whole 'Evil Star' feels monotonous after a few tracks and never fully grabs your attention. Wolf are practitioners of old school Judas Priest meets Motorhead metal with the incorporation of some Thrash and Punk elements. One of the detractors for this album is Niklas's vocals. Very nasally and eventually very annoying. His guitar work is solid, but unimaginative, resulting in the album ending up very repetitive sounding. Mikael and Daniel perform well in the engine room. The production is stunning, a pity the music couldn't match it.

In Summary
When you can't mention one song as being anything close to memorable, you know you've got problems. There is a market for Wolf and 'Evil Wings', it just isn't me. A lot of expectation, very little return.
