I remember reviewing this lot a few years back. Intrigued now to find they are signed to German label Limb Music Products (home to Pagans Mind and Black Majesty) for their second album 'We Rule The Night'. The old school metal approach abounds with these guys. How about early 80's Savatage? You can chuck in a whole load of other influences too, like Dio and perhaps Armored Saint. They don't quite embrace the 21st Century ideals of modern metal, preferring instead to remind us of the late (and in some cases not so great) examples of 80's metal.

The Songs
The title track leads off, and we know exactly where the Firewolfe boys are leading us. An anthemic metal track that sets the tone for what is to come. 'The Devils Music' could be classed as an epic power ballad, the violin filtering through the quiet parts will have you reaching for your Kansas collection just quietly. 'Late Last Night' sees Firewolfe reaching deep into their collective hard rock and metal legacy; not so much out and out metal but a commercial flavour thereof. 'A Senators Gun' was a bit too ponderous for my liking. I much preferred it when the band start kicking some ass instead, as shown on 'Long Road Home', which reminds us of early era Queensryche. 'Who's Gonna Love You' was both labourious and boring; 'Ready To Roll' though a tad heavy on the accelerator was only a marginal improvement. Thankfully the last three songs pick up. 'Betrayal's Kiss', 'Luck Of The Draw' and 'Dream Child' all have good structure and well timed guitar solos.

In Summary
There is some reasonable hard rock/metal here, but for me, I'm looking for something exceptional, and 'We Rule The Night' doesn't quite do it for me I'm afraid. The debut Firewolfe album is far superior to this truth be told; the previous twin guitar attack filling out the sound, more so than Nick Layton's one-man effort here. File under D, which means disappointing.
