We’d like to thank Cursed Tongue Records and the band for sharing the brand new debut album by the band Sleepwulf. This album is garnering a tremendous buzz in the heavy underground and we want all of you to get in on it.
Paul Rote: Incredible monster! I first heard a track from this on the 50th anniversary of the first Black Sabbath album . My thought em was this would easily fit on that album . After hearing the whole album, any an all of these songs are worthy. Favorite track: Wizard slayer.Reek Of STOOM: The very first thought that entered my head was, “Is this a reissue?” Some long-forgotten Tull or Life recording liberated from the dust? Such is the sound of SLEEPWULF. From the opening zazzle of axe and bass, this is as vintage as it gets. SLEEPWULF have delivered an album of timeless sound: an album that lovingly recreates the raw rampages of bygone heroes and celebrates the beauty of pure, unadorned heavy Rock music. A bona fide classic of the genre.
full review here: Doomed & StonedBucky: Sleepwulf has that Pentagram flair going on with comparisons to Witchcraft, Graveyard, and all those other evil sounding doomy blues bands. This is done well. Not reinventing the wheel but a solid contender for album of the year in its class.
