Blackwulf from Oakland are back with their third record, again released on Ripple Music. And what an album it is! Diverse, but not experimental, and fresh without being too modern. “Sinister Sides” is rooted deep in the sound of bygone decades, yet is not a simple copy. The opener “Gate Of Sorrow” breathes Alice In Chains (Singer Alex’ voice is similar to Layne Staley’s), the second song is a fluffy, light rocker, a non-kitschy ballad brings on the feels, and the rest is riffing like as if straight out of Birmingham. Awesome record, buy it and love it!
