Now any of you out there that haven't tried this up and coming bands album I urge you to do so. The musicianship is fantastic and the songs will stick in your head. Also try and see them out on the road, they're a great live band. The only flaw with the album in my eyes is it realy doesn't do the band justice (this isn't to be taken as a negative, the album just doesn't seem to capture all the life that Black Wolf has on stage, it's still a belter of an album).

Saw these guys in Swansea when they supported The Answer on March 15th. Very tight band with some killer riffs. Scott Sharp's vocals were also superb. His voice reminds me of a cross between Myles Kennedy and an early Axl Rose. They also seem to be influenced by the LA Strip sound of the late eighties although they don't venture, thankfully, into hair metal territory. I chatted with the band after the gig and they were very down to earth and kindly signed their album for me. It was a shame there weren't more people there to see them. The album is excellent and well worth the tenner I shelled out for it. I will definitely go and watch them again as they are one of the best new bands around today.

I caught BlackWolf supporting The Answer on the Road Less Travelled. The band were tight and plainly really enjoying themselves up on stage on their second night after joining the tour. Their enthusiasm was infectious and despite none of the audience having previously heard of them, they had us from the start.
The songs are good pacey hard rock, plenty to get your head swinging and your body moving. Their blues roots show under the 90s rock overlay. Check out the guitar solos, nothing too flash, just a proper tuneful overlay emphasising the coda in the track.
Check out the album, but even better check out the band live.

Blackwolf are an incredibly talented bunch of musicians who play some really heavy, bluesy rock, full of great riffs. They are really interactive on Twitter (@ukblackwolf) and I've seen them live on the strength of their earlier EP - "Taking Root". We like them so much we are seeing them on their first headline tour in September 2014, and they are getting a lot of airplay on Planet Rock and Team Rock radio stations.
These guys deserve to make it big!

What can I say. The long awaited follow up to the EP Taking Root. Raw, powerful, soulful that has it all. This is well worth the money and I promise you won't be disappointed. Personal favourite is House of Emerald wine, but you'll be spoiled for choice. BlackWolf are a raw talent and have had rave reviews in Classic Rock Magazine recently - the album is a must.
