An interesting amalgamation of post-hardcore fueled alternative rock/ punk, Oslo Norway’s Wolves Like Us has a lot of addictive qualities to their sound on this second album "Black Soul Choir". Remnants of Quicksand, Hüsker Dü and the like who propel grooves through hypnotic rhythms and drone-like, alternative vocals should savor "When Will We Ever Sleep", the U2-oriented "Your Word Is Law" and the push/ pull clean to distortion blast action for highlight "We Were Blood".
The 11 tracks sweep you into spasmodic brain and body convulsions – a band that would have gone over like gangbusters during MTV’s 120 Minutes program heydays. Wolves Like Us is intense- a hidden gem that will probably build a fan base through live performance impressions.
