Wolftooth – Valhalla

Wolftooth – Valhalla
Ripple Music – 2020
Metal, Stoner, Doom
Rated: ****

Yes, we know. We are constantly on the verge of turning into a Ripple Music hawker. But as we already mentioned in the War Cloud rant; they just seem to be releasing amazing stuff constantly. And yes, Wolftooth’s new album Valhalla is no different! Ten tracks of heavy metal of ten tons of heavy metal, with stoner trucking and doom infused goodness. This is new age stoner metal that still manages to grab back to Sabbath as well. But that, we must confess, might almost entirely be because vocalist guitarist Chris Sullivan sounds a bit like Ozzy. A bit, on certain moments. Powerful riffs and solid solo’s step back into the darkness for some great twin action and that rumbling bass! Damn! A very retro styled drum sounds for the perfect chug. Just check out that title track, cause it has everything neatly packed into almost five minutes of pure heavy metal perfection. And follow-up Fear For Eternity antes up with more aggression, more thrash and even more heavy metal action. Really, Ripple, you bring us Wolftooth! And Wolftooth brings us Valhalla!
