WOLFHOUR: Dead on Arrival: LP

This Swedish supergroup is made up of members of classic Swedish bands including Anti Cimex and Driller Killer. Thus there’s a built-in audience for this release, as there should be, given how great those earlier bands were. Musically all over the map—from melodic semi-pop to screamed mainline hardcore—it’s as well-studied and solid as you’d expect given its members’ backgrounds. Sometimes supergroups disappoint, but this isn’t one of those instances. Highly recommended, and not just for fans of their earlier groups. Wolfhour is terrific.
