Review by

The Ohio-based Wolves at the Gate has put together a worthy blend of melodic songs (like “Rest”) with heart-pounding jammers (like “Wild Heart”) for a stellar release in their new album, VxV. A haunting mix of instruments and pastoral prayer lead their message, proclaiming that our sins have been counted, right up to the screams of “Wake Up” with the drums crashing around like a building crumbling apart. The band wastes no time getting to the message that the gate is broken and the wolves are among you. With a pack mentality, the band bounces off one another and feeds on each other’s energy, delivering raw emotion, song after song. WATG is no longer the cute puppy on the scene. They are grown, maturing as a band and their message carries a bite.
