CD Review: The Wolves (Wolves At Bay & Werewolf Police) Are Out In Connecticut

Connecticut’s own Wolves At Bay are preparing the release of the new six-song EP, “I Was The Devil Once” on Animal Style Records. They have a record release show scheduled at The Space in Hamden, CT on April 16 where they will be performing along with HRVRD, Daylight, Night Owls and Lifelines. This new EP was produced by Nick Bellmore (Hatebreed, Make Do And Mend) and will be available on CD, digital download and a limited number of colored vinyls.
The album begins with the hardcore punk/metal attack of “Hide Like My Friends.” The album’s first single, “Know Why” has a more mature sound as the band still show their aggressive teeth, without the need of pounding their sound inside your mind. Wolves At Bay still has that youthful passion displayed in the songs “Forget Who I Was” and “Hollow.” The album closes with the most mainstream hard rock song on this new release, the energetic “I Was The Devil Once.”

Another Connecticut band looking to make waves in the music industry is Werewolf Police with their new album, “The Moderation Blues.” The band used classic 4-track recording to give the music on the new album a warmer, fuller sound along with expert mastering by Todd Tobias (Guided By Voices). The new album was released at the end of March through Popular Wallpaper Recordings.
The grungy guitar of the opening track “Poison Dart” lays the ground work for Werewolf Police’s most complete project to date. The up-tempo rock of “Too Many Holidays” has that solid backbeat that gets the adrenaline pumping. They expand upon their alternative rock sound with the progressive, mind-expanding “Somewhere Cold,” before returning to the garage rock of “Under The Gun.” The album closes with the alternative, mainstream pop-rock of “Recital”and their return to the grunge of “In A Bad Way.”
Werewolf Police are releasing a special very limited edition run of 50 cassette versions of the new album along with a digital download. For more information on the band’s new album, please visit their Facebook page at
