Punk is also played in Austria but it´s rather of the emotional (oh, fuck) kind. And right away, after checking out the song titles, tears spring to my eyes……„You Like Dreams, We Love Nightmares“- d´uh! „The More We Sink The Less We Care Why“ d´uh, d´uh!! Is this Fall Out Boy or what?? The music arranged around those lyrics is, however, not as sweet as sugar but displays a lot of anger and passion that is worthy of a punk album.
Pack of Wolves is mostly influenced by bands who, with their innovative, creative ideas (insane rhythms, song structures far away from any convention), left their mark on the punk/indie scene some 10 years ago – I´m talking about Refused and early Biffy Clyro. Therefore, it´s not really new what the guys are doing here and for my taste they are a bit too much inspired by these bands but the hardcore screams work nicely, the occasionally attempted clean vocals, however, are something else. For me, this has nothing to do with despair etc anymore; it´s only hurting my ears.
A Nice Black Suite is a nice, not very black debut album that leaves a lot of space for developing the music further.
