Wrath Of Wolves – The Obstreperous Dragon Demo review

Wrath Of Wolves – The Obstreperous Dragon Demo

Definitely a name for a Black Metal-oriented band! But that's half the truth! Well, this project was formed when Blackstorm witnessed the decline of Black Metal in 2005 and fortunately guitarist Antony Storm decided to follow a more qualitative direction by composing skillful music with progressive and Neo-classical elements. What I got from the band is a four-track demo with inspiring moments, deeply influenced by Yngwie J. Malmsteen, Uli Jon Roth and the great pioneers of the scene! In the band's forthcoimng album, Derek Sherinian will contribute the keyboard parts as a session musician, while current Yngwie J. Malmsteen’s Rising Force’s drummer Patrick Johansson will be also invited to torture his drum leathers. All four songs are fast-pasted tracks, with precisely executed parts and crystal clear performance from Mr. Antony something that will not pass unnoticed from all Neo-classical Metal aficionados! Shining arpeggios mix with galloping rhythms and memorable riffs showcase the great abilities and many promises that this project reveals. The band is also ready to enter the studio in order to record their debut full length with the above mentioned guests, so stay tuned for some major updates from the band’s camp!
