Discovered these guys right at the tail end of spring semester. Seriously one of the best bands out there today. Fucking killer. Legions of Bastards, The Black Flame, Ravenous, and Evil Star have thus far been my most played records this summer. You could say something critic-ish like calling them throwback/retro/classic/insert shitty label metal or saying something like "Wolf is a blend of Accept, Mercyful Fate, Helloween esque leads, and early 80s Judas Priest." But the fact of the matter is they transcend all that. They shit all over stuff that is throwback for the sake of being throwback (Ghost ) and put out albums where every song is heavy, catchy, and killer.
Check it out.

If you like metal albums where every song is catchy and heavy (a la Balls to the Wall or Heaven and Hell) you have to check this out.
Not to mention the leads/solos are some of the best in the genre. Period.
