Oslo-based rockers Wolves Like Us bring a burst of fast-paced urgency with this debut album, blending ominous riffs with gruff vocals to blast a powerful force.
Wolves Like Us:
Norwegian gutter-rockers bring the noise.
WLU cite post-hardcore bands like Planes Mistaken for Stars, Hot Snakes and Drive Like Jehu as influences, but their sound is difficult to categorise, as their debut mixes alternative rock with post-hardcore and punk.
The rough, powerful vocals expelled by vocalist/guitarist Lars Kristensen are particularly impressive, peaking in songs like We Speak In Tongues and To Whore With Foreign Goods, injecting the album with a guttural darkness that brews well with its minor chords and thumping percussion.
A thoroughly weighty mass of furious raw energy.
