Have you ever experienced the thing where you pop on an album and are just immediately impressed by how good it sounds, to the point where you think this might be in your top albums of the year after maybe three songs?

Wolvhammer’s latest is that good. So good that it’s a massive improvement over their last really good EP. The hybrid sound of punk and black metal is full integrated here. It’s not a band with influences playing songs with different components representing those influences, it’s the Wolvhammer sound. A lot of these new songs are built over a some really solid riffing that greatly appeals to the side of that loves stuff like mid-90s Dismember. There are sludgy parts, and parts that remind of the golden age of Am Rep noise rock. Their sounds like section on MySpace lists: Norway, NOLA, Sweden, Oakland, Lemmy, Whiskey, Substances. That’s exactly what they sound like; the perfect mix of their influences.

Wolvhammer – Black Marketeers of World War III will be available July 13th on Init Records.

I am also digging the new logo and artwork a lot.
