ROADWOLF – UNCHAIN THE WOLF ( Review by Varg The Mighty )

Today’s review is of Austrian Heavy Metal band Roadwolf’s debut album.

The album starts with an instant classic and definitely their best track, “All Hell Is Breaking Loose”. In this song as in most of the album, there’s a natural feeling in their Heavy Metal that perhaps even tends towards Glam Rock, for some songs remind of MötleyCrüe’s“Too Fast For Love”.

Overall though, the style played is very similar to NWOBHM, especially Judas Priest (notably on the title track) and Saxon (notably on “Roadwolf”). There are also some elements of Teutonic Heavy Metal and hints of Iron Maiden on some flagrant melodies, and this album is surely a masterpiece of modern Heavy Metal. It’s as if it was composed in the 80’s, and this band has a lot of potential that will leave us eager for more of their music. They have every element necessary for a Heavy Metal band: great looks, cool music videos, denim, leather, silly lyrics about how nice it is to be a rocker, catchy choruses and classy riffs. Other highlights from this album besides the previously mentioned songs would be “M.I.A.” and “Wheels Of Fire”, but each track is memorable in its own way and playing the whole album is definitely worth it.

I recommend this album to fans of Heavy Metal and Glam Rock. My rating is of 9,5/10.
