Bulletwolf/Double Shots Of Rock 'n' Roll/Abyss Records/2008 CD Review

Bulletwolf are a band from Indiapolis, Indiana that plays a mixture of heavy metal and stoner/doom metal and this is a review of their 2008 album "Double Shots Of Rock'n'Roll" which was released by Abyss Records.

Drums are mostly slow to midpaced with no fast playing or blast beats, while the bass playing has a heavy sound which sounds like a mixture of doom metal and 70's rock and there are some powerful bass leads being used at times.

Rhythm guitars mix slow doom/sludge metal riffing with some classic metal riffs and 70's rock with mostly slow riffs but there are some more update midpaced stuff that comes up times mixed in with some fast parts that have a punk feel, while the lead guitars are 70's rock sounding guitar solos with a heavy stoner feel to them.

Vocals are mostly raspy sounding clean singing vocals with some heavy singing that reminds me of Cathedral when they where going through their stoner phase, while the lyrics cover beer, whiskey, hangovers and life, as for the production it has a very powerful sound and all of the instruments have a very heavy feel to them.

In my opinion Bulletwolf are a very good stoner/doom metal band and if you are a fan of this genre you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "White Trash Whiplash" "Get The Horse Out" "Fuckfight" and "Hungoveritz".
