Review


I've heard so many good things about this band, and I finally had the chance to give them a try. Well, if this album is any indication, Wolf is a pure and ripping Heavy Metal band as it seems that this could have been recorded in the 80's. The album captures perfectly what made that decade so great to me, like the catchy choruses and the insane guitar work. Ravenous is packed with killer tunes and while some are better than others, there is always something that will bring a smile to any metalhead. The first six songs contain more energy and charisma that a lot of bands cannot achieve in a lifetime.

Ravenous is one of the most enjoyable albums that I've heard so far this year. With songs such as: "Mr. Twisted", "Curse You Salem" that have extremely catchy riffs, you'll be satisfied for quite some time. The record is not perfect as it has some minor faults like getting used to the singer's voice and "Hiding in the Shadows" sounding a little bit like filler. Still, with Wolf wearing Iron Maiden and Judas Priest influences proudly on their sleeves, this album is perfect for when you want to listen to a solid metal album. Ravenous has a high replay value and is going near the top of my best albums list this year, a high encouragement for me to get the rest of their discography, and if you are a fan of the band you can't go wrong with this.
