ALBUM HOWLING WRATH
OUT 2018 - March
LABEL RED CAT RECORDS, 7HARD
OUR RATING 80/100
STORMWIND are a band based in North Italy, with several years of experience but HOWLING WRATH is the first full leght.
Forged in old school HM heritage, european and american both, they are a 5-piece female fronted band.
You can find their love for classic metal music in three well-known cover versions, one of classic WARLOCK "ALL WE ARE" and two of LIZZY BORDEN.
But in this platter we can find much else: THE PHOENIX is surely old-school but the really inspired solo is enhanced by neoclassical drops.
WINTER OF THE WOLF is maybe a bit more "modern" while MARATHON is more in classic Hard Rock mood.
FEAR OF THE PAST returns to classic 80's roots, with great changes of time, while SWORDWIND is more contemporary, with a melodic part suited to exalt vocals.
If LIGHTCRUSHER goes on in the same way, THASAIDON is an awesome instrumental, so various and exciting.
SOULBLIGHTER is the last original song before three cover version abovementioned.
STORMWOLF give us a great job forged in classic roots but they're able to enrich all with a lot of other things!
