I don’t even know how I stumbled onto the Bandcamp page for Oakland’s Blackwülf but when I sparked up the stream for their latest release, I got the same feeling I get when I find random money in my pocket. Billing themselves as doom or stoner rock, Blackwülf sounds like a throwback to late 70s heavy metal powerhouses like Judas Priest and Black Sabbath. Killer heavy riffs and a very organic sludgy sound. A new local favorite for me!
Blackwülf’s latest release “Oblivion Cycle” (December 2015) is available on vinyl, CD and download through Ripple Music, and download/streaming is available from Bandcamp.
