Wolf is a nice little release from a young Swedish band,
musically quite atypical of the current scene.
The music here is straight from the NWOBHM period of the early
80's (think very early
energetic and fast-paced,
with a unpolished (in a good way) guitar sound that gives the
songs a rough edge.
The vocals, in my opinion, don't quite fit -- his voice is clear,
but overly melodic and high-pitched, more in tune with more recent
German power metal bands than the raw metal sounds of the music
Nonetheless, there is a sense of youthful enthusiasm that drives
the songs forward, making this an enjoyable listen.
This band seems to have come out of nowhere, it will be interesting
to see how/if they develop their style further.
Recent album: Shadowland,
released on January 2022.
