Heavy quintet, Horned Wolf are streaming the entirety of their upcoming album »Become Like They Are«. The album will be released this Friday June 24th, 2022 on CD, cassette and digital formats.
The band comments: “After two years in the making thanks to the global covid pandemic slowing us down for a while, we are so very excited to see this chapter close and another open as the hard work and passion we put into this album finally come to fruition. We cannot wait for you to listen and experience this with us!”
Drawing inspiration from the likes of In Flames to Kate Bush, and Alice In Chains to Lorna Shore, and Black Sabbath, to name a few, the band seamlessly fuses multiple styles into each track. Opening with »You’re Boring«, the track effortlessly flows from an upbeat, punk-edged beginning, to arrive at a dramatic breakdown, before entering a doom-esque slower section. Descending further into the gloom, »Bloodlines« is a raucous blast of doom, sludge and fuzz. Elevating the guitar tones and introducing the demonic, guttural harsh vocals, Horned Wolf delicately lure their audience into the dark side. The title track, »Become Like They Are«, packs an epic punch with driving rhythms, powerful harsh vocals and soaring cleans. Concluding with »Every Creature’s Luck Runs Dry (Doom Forever)«, Horned Wolf unveil a fury of raw power, emotion and immense intensity. Profound and haunting with a mournful undertone, it will leave you craving more.
Horned Wolf have produced a thrilling extravaganza of dynamic and genre-crossing heavy sounds. Simultaneously pushing boundaries and sharing a positive message of inclusivity through their music, the act are a force to be reckoned with.
