This album must have been gathering dust at the back of a drawer I guess, since I only received it some two weeks ago to write a review. When I looked at the bands name, and the graphics it was written in, together with the picture on the album’s sleeve, I got visions of eighthies German trash metal band, but I couldn’t have been farther from the truth. These guys come from the US, and play melodic metal.
Let’s start with the positive aspects from this album. The music is good, but nothing out of the extraordinary. Likewise, the singer does a good job, but there are better vocalists.
And now to the not so positive aspects…. It’s been quite a while since I’ve heard such cheesy, unimaginative, stereotype lyrics. If, like me, you like to laugh from time to time with ridiculous music, and you live I Belgium, there’s a TV station that’s called MENT TV, that brings a collection of Flemish and other schlagers. And why do I laugh when looking to this station ? Well there are two reasons. One is the lyrics of most of the songs. The other is the look these singers mostly have. In case of Firewölfe the looks are OK, but if ever there was a similar station to MENT TV, but playing rock music, this band surely would be on it.
Sorry for this review guys, next time think a bit longer about your lyrics, and write some decent song texts.
