Metal used to be all about having a deep, heavy groove, which made it more dangerous, because it was sexy and sinful. Wolf Snake Sun hark back to the bluesy metal years of the 1970s, without sounding too much like Sabbath. Singer Robert Lindemann has a Glen Danzig-like metal baritone that is punctuated by some pretty haunting howls. At times, it even sounds like a man being assaulted, which works with the inherent darkness of the music. A fun factor in the lyrics lights things up a bit. "Zombie girl from outer space" and "Dressed in Blood" are campy but sung with seriousness. They can also rip some mean psychedelic guitar solos.
