Hour Of The Wolf – Decompositions (Volume 1)

After three EPs and one split with Lewd Acts on three different labels in just four years, the people over at Think Fast! thought it would be a good plan to make a collection so that all of the songs are readily available. This is the first volume of the collection and after having heard it a bunch of times, I can only hope that volume 2 will follow soon.

The guys that make up Arizona’s Hour Of The Wolf excel at mixing up punk and hardcore with rock ‘n roll swagger, making it a true pleasure to listen. Picture older AFI (the vocalist reminded me more than once of Davey Havok) as part of the Gearhead family if you will. All of the songs on here are catchy, energetic and powerful as fuck. There’s also a bunch of covers to enjoy including Black Flag’s “Fix Me”, Nerve Agents’ “Fall Of The All American” and The Stooges’ “I Wanna Be Your Dog”. It might help shine a light on some of the band’s influences.

Here’s to hoping that with this release they will finally gain the exposure they deserve. Check it out and if you like it you can even order an Hour Of The Wolf coffee mug. Hell yeah!
Score: 7.5 out of 10
