Some seriously heavy-handed rock comes out of Mind Traveler. Not the faintest whiff of punk emanates from this album. Which, I’m sure in all fairness, is exactly what Blackwülf sets out to do. ‘80s-style heavy metal with tinges of ‘90s grunge, all gloomy and doomy. I’m sure their label sent this out to whomever. This is just not my thing. I can tell you this is well produced and the cover art is a fucking ‘80s vintage-rock-T-shirt-wet-dream-come-true, but if it’s punk you seek, this ain’t it.
