Dark Premonitions – the debut full length from Los Angeles blackened – crossover thrash band Chain Wolf is an animalistic and crushing work of genre-shattering extreme metal.
Bludgeoned by adroit guitar solos of 90s’ Priest level majesty, a dizzying array of Wylde-esque squeals and Pantera power riffs, Suidical Tendencies pacing and cross-over intensity, nearly every conceivable element of driving metal is in play to create a truly seamless full-length record.
Not a single filler track to be found across the 12 tracks of blissful annihilation, each song composed neatly with little to be found in excess or falling short of the attention.
For fans of black metal and thrash, this record will not only satisfy a craving for absolute sonic punishment, but may even open the door to further punk and crossover appreciation.
