Wolfs Moon are a German power metal quartet with a lot of thrash groove thrown in on this album "Curse the Cult of Chaos", the seventh full length from the band. At 12 songs and 65 minutes, this could have used some personal pruning as much of the riffing follows predictable Iced Earth meets third rate Pantera lines- along with a vocalist in Robert Rogge that struggles to hit any clean notes without sounding like he’s struggling through puberty and often sounds better with a his thrash/growling nature like in the title cut or "Dynamo".
Painful to get through on one pass (never mind the five I tried), "Curse the Cult of Chaos" proves why certain acts struggle to make headway against the veterans of this business: conviction and professional songwriting trump all.
