Stream It From The Mountain: Wolftooth – Wolftooth

The Richmond, Indiana metal band Wolftooth is relatively new to the scene but the members have played together in different bands for the last two decades.  Vocalist/guitarist Chris Sullivan played in old school death metal band Darknes and along with bassist Terry McDaniel in Drench.  Rounding out the band is guitarist Jeff Cole and drummer Johnny Harrod.  Together they create a dense, riff-heavy hybrid that combines the best of 70’s hard rock and 80’s thrash and heavy metal along with catchy grunge-era melodies.
Their self-titled debut album was originally self-released by the band via their Bandcamp page, where it quickly climbed up the charts and was picked up by Pittsburgh’s Blackseed Records, who released it on CD in March and then by Copenhagen’s Cursed Tongue Records, who recently reissued it on vinyl in April. 
Standout tracks include, “Sword Of My Father” which is built upon a rollicking power metal riff and “Frost Lord”, highlighted by a galloping riff and rhythm; and both tracks and most of the album features fantasy-themed lyrics, soaring melodic guitar solos and anthemic sing-along melodies.
