Caged Wolves – Act of Nature Past Management (2021)

Coming to us from the cultural hub of
Vienna, that is the third launch from Caged Wolves, following their
back-to-back studio and stay EPs in 2019. This time round, the band
brings three songs to the desk, every settling within the eight to 10
minute vary, working a mixture of desert rock, doom steel, and
various approaches to every.

First of the tunes is “Cosmic Rage”,
which kicks off on a psychedelic groove with some phasing guitar over
heavy rolling drums. Settling right into a slow-moving however highly effective groove
which hangs round for a lot of the music’s the rest, the band
counterpoints it with bursts of glowering vitality, punching up the
vocals proper alongside the strings and drums. The vocalist is
gracious sufficient to bow out for a stretch, letting the listener soak
in some instrumental interactions as they progressively construct to a
crescendo, resulting in an actual banger of a climax. “Chronos”
follows, main with an fascinating intro finger-picking and rim
percussion earlier than sliding to an virtually wistful association. They put
the high-energy bursts of the opening monitor to work once more right here, however
elevate the time spent in these outbursts every time, making for a cool
examine in alternation of their depth. Fortunately, there’s sufficient
emotion put into the slower parts that they do not lose the thread,
although the momentum does get stretched fairly far. Once more, the climax
delivers on the build-up, and the band exhibits some hanging chemistry
in the best way they riff off of one another on this one’s launch.

Lastly, “By way of the Rainbow Valley”
introduces itself by pulling out a blanket of fuzz for the strings,
which, together with the fatness of the following riffs, shifts issues
deep into Kyuss territory. Because the band shifts their means again out
alongside the course of the music, the psychedelic and prog parts get
turned means up, culminating in a fantastically shagged-out roar. Oh,
and then you definitely get all three songs once more, in instrumental type. The
persistent high quality of the songs is a testomony to the work that this
crew has been placing in since their final releases, and it actually
pays off properly. Nice song-writing and highly effective enjoying, effectively value
trying out for anybody within the temper for one thing with some heavy
music to take them away for some time.
