𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Tight complex/technical – downturned, aggressive and pulsing riffs & rhythms with slow breakdowns, intense passages & chord playing, with heavy bass riffs

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Deep-gruffed - shouting & growls with a -Esque rapping vibe

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Hard-hitting multifaceted of tempos and drum patterns, with the occasional blast beats,& double bass drumming

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: I welcome you, Familiar Dark, a very dark Metalcore, or should I say a very dark nu-metalcore? The Wolves Among Us is a pure-heavy and dark extreme wolf


With only playing time of over fourteen minutes, with six songs, or should I say five songs, with the first track only a short instrumental intro, the sounds like something from a horror flick and very unsettling, nerve-racking and heavy & loud, leaving the rest of the five concise songs. That just - full-on in your face metalcore that (for me) combines not just metalcore, but the extreme brutal sound of death metal, -Esque Slipknot's 'Iowa' second release, hit of deathcore, hardcore/grindcore short songs, excellent intricate riffing, heavy-pounding/dense sound, deep-throat vocals, that sounds like Luke as chewed the microphone up and spat it back out, this EP comes with overall of the goodness of skill and carefully put-together, along with entertaining musicianship and sheer brutal unique sound and dark in a unique style & music of their own


A Metalcore band, that's taking their music to a different approach & height!


*energetic* *must listener from start to end*

* entertaining* *unique & dark* *twisted & insane*

A nu-wolf


Dark Metalcore
