Album Review

With their eponymous four-track EP, Australia's Wolfmother join likeminded acts such as Witchcraft and Dead Meadow in a quest to re-create the embryonic heavy metal of the late '60s and early '70s as if Black Sabbath, Blue Cheer and Sir Lord Baltimore were their peers — not old enough to be their grandfathers. Powerfully fuzzy guitar riffs, serpentine basslines, thumping percussion, echoed, warbling vocals, and even the occasional Hammond organ provide the fundamental building blocks for the youthful trio's convincingly Jurassic creations; and the impressive opening tandem of "Dimension" (complete with occasionally off-key, Ozzy-aping screams) and "Woman" carry off the illusion so authentically, that not even wizened old-timers are likely to uncover the ruse. Next number "Apple Tree" diverges from the basic template just a tad by interspersing a jolt of psychedelic garage rock into its otherwise familiarly ponderous sections (reminiscent of Pentagram), and the grand finale intended by "The White Unicorn" is largely achieved thanks to surprisingly pretty, chiming guitar melodies à la Led Zeppelin. In sum, Wolfmother aren't claiming any measure of originality here — they're just offering a form of time travel.

Take Notes

Any band even considering to ROCK should listen to this album, to see what you are up against. Rock needs this band.

You can dig it...

The iTunes review was a little harsh - I was turned on by the "free download of the week" that dropped back in the summer, Dimension. Instantly, Sabbath entered my head. I thought it was cool that someone was doing a throwback to such a profound genre that most people checking out iTunes were only lucky enough to hear en utero. Point being, you really can dig it. Whether you grew up listening to Led (and others) or not, you have to admit Wolfmother's attempt is epitome of perfection when compared to the slaughtering of Kashmir by the likes of "Jigglypuff" or whatever his name is...

I GOT TO TALK TO ANDREW!

This album doesnt have a single bad song on it, and the band owns live. I got to talk to Andrew of the band on the radio, and ever since then, this has been my fav band. The Remixes own and its all good. ITS AWESOME

Biography

Formed: 2000 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australi

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Truly a band out of time, the Australian power trio Wolfmother were conceived in 2000 — about 30 years too late, considering that the musicians' psychedelic brand of proto-heavy metal sounded similar to the late-'60s/early-'70s craft of Blue Cheer and Black Sabbath. Comprised of vocalist/guitarist Andrew Stockdale, bassist/organist Chris Ross, and drummer Myles Heskett, Wolfmother took the initiative of recording a four-track demo in 2004 for the purpose of booking shows. So sterling were the...
