“Wolf Blood is indeed that brutal–’brutal’ as in smack-your-face loud rock-n-roll, amps on fire, packed house, broken glass, cops-breaking-up-the-party brutal.” –Homegrown Music Festival Field Guide, 2014
Formed in a dank basement during one of the coldest winters on record in Duluth, Minnesota, guitarist Mike Messina and drummer Jake Paulsrud (Dirty Horse/Dad’s Acid) started writing psycho-sludge experiments that sounded too stoned to be metal, and too baneful to be indie-rock. They recruited renown hard-core guitar sorceress Mindy Johnson (The Keep Aways) and magi-roots bassist Brian Wells (Dirty Horse) to flesh-out the menacing sound, and Wolf Blood came to life.
Their seven-song recording debut opens with the haunting single Witch. From there…you’re on your own for the next 35 feral, blood stained minutes.
