After a break of four years To Speak Of Wolves are finally back with a new EP called ‘New Bones’. This EP is released on Cardigan Records. Formerly they were signed to Solid State records.
The first song of this six-song EP is called ‘Ok, I’ll Be a Part of This World’. Immediately we are thrown into the deep with smashing riffs and screaming like there is no tomorrow. It is clear that their sound has grown a bit darker in the past years.
Title track ‘New Bones’ is no exception to the aforementioned and has a chorus that sticks to your memory. This song has a menacing tone and an aggression that appeals to me as a die hard hardcore fan.
The EP rages forth with an energy that never has a dull moment. ‘What The Wind Reaps’ is with 4:11 minutes the longest song on the album. So no excessive long boring songs, but just ‘to the point’rock/hardcore. As a matter of fact, I don’t think that their description of rock/hardcore covers the style entirely. When you hear this album you just can’t help it to compare it to Norma Jean. It has a high Math-Core content.
