Lord Howler: ... Hath Four Heads!
Lord Howler Hath Four Heads Review

Lord Howler: ... Hath Four Heads!

(Melodic) Hard Rock/Heavy Metal
4.5/5.0

I'd give this band high marks for their clever combination of band name and album title: Lord Howler ... Hath Four Heads!. Four wolfheads on the cover, four dudes in the band; it all works.

Lord Howler: four heads art better than one.

Expect nothing fancy or novel from Lord Howler; this is not a modern band with the latest modern hard rock or metal sound. ... Hath Four Heads! is classic melodic, metal-edged, hard rock steeped in a tradition from the late Seventies into the Eighties.

Many of the songs offer a brisk pace with a sturdy rhythm section with clear bass lines. Upon this are sharp classic guitar leads. You have the edgier metal side of Weapons Grade and Every Time I Die. Deep rock groove within FID and Last Laugh. A touch of speed metal with Thunderbolt. And you might hear some subtle blues in Gone In a Trance or Ink the Deal. ... Hath Four Heads! concludes with a nice twin guitar instrumental, Maestro's Mountain.

Lord Howler's ... Hath Four Heads! is solid work in the grand tradition of melodic hard rock and metal. It's dead one, straight up, and entertaining rock. Very recommended.
