Clemens is never better than on the memorable “Now Or Never” a track that opens with the line “could be a tramp could be a star, death will still watch you from afar, equal justice awaits us all.” Wise lyrics of the inevitability of time running out with the advise to live each day in the best possible way enrich the track. Musically it hits all the targets and includes a great bass line and searing guitar from J-P.
A funk-fuelled “Mutation” leads to “Howling With The Banshee” which arrives shrouded in a dense fog of an atmosphere. After opening with a nod to one of those influences, in this case Zeppelin’s “No Quarter”, it begins to majestically unfold.
The album ends with “Our New MediaEvil World” a 12-minute piece that says it how it seems, to many of us, to be. “Superficial gadgets clutter, dictate our daily lives, suppress life’s appetite and elevation of the mind.”
Already attracting attention across France and beyond this album should see their reputation quickly gathering momentum. WolfSpring is a superbly written, expertly performed, and highly recommended album that is well worth exploring from a band who deserve to be listened to.
