This is the début album from US Doom Metal band Wolf Blood.
Wolf Blood play Doom Metal – a cross between Traditional Doom and Stoner Doom.
The tunes here are memorable and kicked out with obvious passion and no shortage of charisma. It’s a testament to the band’s talent that the melodies and riffs that the band perform sound both familiar and fresh; ancient yet vibrant.
A mix of Traditional Doom and Stoner Doom could theoretically have descended into the mediocre quite quickly but Wolf Blood manage to side step this pitfall by taking the best aspects of each. This has resulted in a collection of songs that have the power and majesty of Doom with the energy and drive of Stoner.
The band have a really warm, welcoming sound that embraces the listener with good feelings and Doomy vibes. It’s not too polished and keeps an underground feel but it does the band justice and the songs sound authentic and engaging.
There’s a lot to like here. Wolf Blood clearly know what they want to achieve and I think their début album succeeds in this.
Listen up Doomsters, there’s a new power in town.
