Blood of the Wolf Begin Their “Scorched Earth Ceremony”

blood of the wolf

Blood of the Wolf are not here to coddle hearts and caress eardrums. The all-business Chicago quartet sling a fiendishly aggressive brand of blackened death that draws as equally from their contemporaries as it does their forebears. Their upcoming sophomore full-length record II: Campaign of Extermination is a ferocious slaughter-fest that sounds exactly how a record titled “Campaign of Extermination” should.

Sit down, hold fast to a secure object, and brace yourself for our exclusive premiere of Blood of the Wolf’s appropriately-titled track “Scorched Earth Ceremony.”

Scraping guitars herald the doom-march of an approaching army that will stop at nothing in its remorseless pursuit of conquest. Soon, we are cast into the tumult of battle, thrashed incessantly by Rick Hernandez’s machine-gun kicks and the bowel-dwelling, slime-drenched presence of vocalist and guitarist Mike Koniglio.

Blood of the Wolf blend the head-bobbing catchiness and robust vocals of Dyscarnate with retro-trebly guitar leads. Koniglio’s measured delivery allows him to function as the sole anchor in the tempest of his bandmates’ twitchy guitars and relentless drumming. Hernandez’s head-spinning kicks are a pervasive hallmark of the band’s percussive songwriting style. Even the guitar melodies hit with all the subtlety of a brass-knuckled punch to the teeth.

As their name suggests, there’s nothing gentle about Blood of the Wolf. There is nary a single beat in which to stop and catch one’s breath, such is the urgency of the music. From the first beat until the last, the song surges ahead at full tilt with no hesitation or wavering in purpose.

— Ivan Belcic

Blood of the Wolf will be self-releasing II: Campaign of Extermination on April 7th. The title track is currently available for streaming on Bandcamp.
