Review by Mohsen Fayyazi
WARNING; The wolves are back with true sharp steel and pure heavy metal again and you cannot ignore their metal greatness.
WOLF is one those Swedish bands who are the banner men of Swedish Heavy Metal Scene, an Icon aside to HAMMERFALL or even Yngwie Malmsteen. Genius in the studio, furious upon the stage, WOLF members can rock the world with their pure steel and energy.
Century Media Records posted the video of WOLF‘s ‘Shark Attack’ on its YouTube channel and they teamed up with Metal Hammer to premiere it. The song is written in pure WOLF traditional style – a mixture of old school elements and modern ones. It starts with speed and power as in ‘Skull Crusher’ or ‘Road To Hell’ and then the very familiar and unique voice of Viper, A.K.A Niklas Stalvind appears. He used more chorus technique in this track, which is really great as you can feel more anger and determination in his voice, absolutely a great choice. The guitar riffs are very well written and the guitar solo, enhanced by Wah-Pedal, matches the other elements in the song. The band painted a genius picture of the sharp steely teeth of a shark.
I have WOLF‘s “Devil Seed” album in my office and I will do my best to review it for you as soon as I can. But for now, enjoy the furious and stalwart ‘Shark Attack’:
