***Please visit this review on our new website: Attack Of The Wolfpakk***
Cry Wolf delivers an excellent ride throughout featuring a variety of different styles and each song sounding fresh from the thumping anthems to the ballad, this album contains something for everyone. Starting off hauntingly, the opening cut, "Moonlight" evolves quickly, setting the bar for the album, but as it turns out is one of the weaker cuts overall. The voice of American band Hardline, Johnny Gioeli, lends his vocal talent to "A Matter of Time" in a true standout cut of the record. The first official video has been released for track three with "Dark Revelation" followed by the ballad showcasing Amanda Sommerville's vocals, "Cold Winter". A video has also been shot for "Cold Winter", but has yet to be made available for viewing. "Palace of Gold" leads us into the growling sound of a wolf for the beginning of the fast paced "The Beast In Me". From here the already enjoyable listen really picks up steam with the triple assault of the best three tracks on the album in "Wakken", "Pressure Down" and the Rainbow cover "Run With The Wolf" (featuring Rainbow keyboardist Tony Carey). The epic title track, "Cry Wolf", follows clocking in at ten minutes while the crunchy chops of bonus track "Kid Raw" close the collection on a high note. This is a sold melodic metal recording that any fan of European style metal will appreciate.
