The New York City-based outfit features a cast of musicians who have collectively spent time in Murphy’s Law, Tides Within, After Dark, Malstrom, Supervillain and more, bringing years of both studio and onstage expertise to the table. THE RESURRECTION SORROW’s Hour of the Wolf was recorded by veteran NYC engineer Joe Hogan (Nebula, The Atomic Bitchwax) and features intense artwork by Seldon Hunt (Melvins, Sunn O))), Neurosis, etc.).
“In a word: Ballsy… This is testosterone driven doom rock that stands out like a high five across the table at a fancy restaurant. Think COC, BLS, Crowbar, some Borgo Pass-style sludge…” – TheObelisk.net
“Hour of the Wolf bolsters the future of Metal.” – Steven Blush (author/filmmaker, American Hardcore)
“…if one were going for an easy description then Cathedral meets COC with a dash of Metallica would probably cover it, but delve a little deeper and there’s more than just stylistic borrowings from the obvious reference points.” 5/5 – RockMidgets.com
