WOLF COUNSEL ” Age Of Madness / Reign Of Chaos”

” Age Of Madness / Reign Of Chaos”
(Czar Of Bullets)

Battle Helm Rating

Swiss doom metal. I don’t think that I have come upon too many Swiss doom metal bands over the years. Not that geography matters. But it is still a bit cool to hear Swiss bands seeing as much of my extreme metal taste was shaped by one single Swiss band; Hellhammer. Doom metal is not just one style. You got the Candlemass style that is epic, Sabbath-like and melodic. Then you have the Cathedral “Forest Of Equilibrium” kinda thrash that is slower as hell and not so melodic. WOLF COUNSEL are of the latter school. This is slow and heavy in a way that makes a tortoise seem quicker than the wind. If you can’t take your doom with the vibe of the 70s, with not much melodies then this is not for you. But if you like your doom darken than the darkest Northern Swedish winter night and with a sludge like approach to melodies then this is for you (and me). Anders Ekdahl
