With a name like FireWölfe, complete with umlaut, and a release on Germany’s Limb Music your first thought would naturally be this band is a European Power Metal outfit. You’d be wrong, however, as this is an American band made up of musicians you probably haven’t heard of but who have played along with the likes of Dave Ellefson, Jorg Fischer, Doug Aldrich, Kurdt Vanderhoof and Randy Piper. Melodic Heavy Metal is the band’s genre of choice and their second album, We Rule the Night, was released in October 2014.

There are plenty of other bands that rule the night more than these guys but that doesn’t stop We Rule the Night from being a decent album for anyone into U.S. Metal from the 80s like Icon and Fifth Angel. The riffs are true Heavy Metal, no glam shit, and singer David Fefolt has a strong, gritty voice that is very soulful in a David Coverdale/Paul Stanley way. While FireWölfe aren’t the heaviest band on the block, they aren’t wimps either so comparisons to Gun Barrel aren’t entirely unfounded though We Rule the Night is easily the best Gun Barrel album Gun Barrel never wrote. The lyrics are pretty simplistic making this stuff that much easier to digest but if you like to pick apart hidden meanings, you’ll need to move along.

I found myself liking We Rule the Night despite its simplicity and melodic nature but then again I grew up on this stuff. If the same things sound good to you, grab a copy.
