𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Once smashing the play button, getting ready to be demolished in the face and stomp on with this release, this is 'To Live Among Wolves' and their new EP, that is filling with the purist of over eleven minutes, only four songs that are just pure violent & energetic hardcore punk,


I have to say 'To Live Among Wolves' brings back the good old days of bands like Black Flag, GBH and many more while capturing the spirit of energetic power of Sex Pistols & The Exploited. Still, in a way, their style of hardcore punk stands out from most hardcore punk bands, where most these bands play a form of a straightforward anti-attitude hardcore/punk music with the bobbing/moshing energetic vibe. At the same time, this Dutch wolf, give their listeners the hardcore punk music & good moshing attitude, but with an extra dose of (intertwines with) distorted sound of grunge, heaviest/breakdowns of beatdown, anthem adrenalin vibe, anxious feeling, melodies and breathtakingly surprise moments from the vocalist, singalongs, chorus intersections (which is unique for a hardcore punk act), while the lyrical themes of "standing up for what you think is right"


The band's music style and lyrical themes, for surly, comes from the heart and spirit of these of their heroes, there grew up listening to, while giving their listeners a dosage of raw-energy, loud, emotion and unrefined power from start to finish


The themes they discuss in their lyrics are stories about their lives and how living your life inherently means standing up for what you think is right.

Their latest EP, '(Dis)honored', shows to live among wolves at their most vulnerable, detailing their inner fears and showing the mixture of hardcore, punk, grunge and beatdown the band is defined by
