Wolftooth – Valhalla
Wolftooth is a pack of seasoned metal veterans determined to raise the bar of the almighty riff, combining elements of 70s and early 80s NWOBHM with Bay Area Thrash, doom-laden riffery and a stoner sensibility, and were called “the best pure-blooded heavy metal band in the world right now” by Metal Hammer not long back. On sophomore album Valhalla, the Indiana outfit has upped the ante, expanding on their formula with added sonic layers and greater variation in songwriting and musical execution. Valhalla is a triumphant return for Wolftooth, a diverse record with heavy rockers, straight-up metal bangers, and expanded production. This band is ready to howl!
