For every aspiring obscure Metaller, and of course also for the veteran in this style, an interesting experience should be the debut of Florida owls SEASONS OF THE WOLF. Who already has their two following works "Lost In Hell" and "Nocturnal Revelation" automatically should get this one as well, if he hasn't done so.
On their 96 debut the band around charismatic singer Wes Waddell still worked a little more spartanic, but already back then they could fully convince. The album contains 7 songs, which are as solemn as a walk through the dark pine forest. Each guitar riff resembles a step into the dark, into the unknown. But the longer you tread the path of the unknown, the more often the originally drab melodies shine through the wall of mighty song structures like strong rays of the sun, showing the wanderer the further path.
After numerous treads on this path, the few valiant and strongly believing knights will praise the Lord (the band) that they were blessed with this path of enlightenment, while the weak ones will rather take the big detour around the dark forest. Meaning: Who likes great bands of the calibre of MANILLA ROAD, DOOMSWORD or BROCAS HELM, will also listen to the call of SEASONS OF THE WOLF. Those, who rather walk on the beaten paths of former, now aged heroes and their simple adepts, should continue to follow the slave caravan! (Online June 18, 2003)
