Wolf Counsel are a band from Switzerland that plays doom metal with elements of stoner and sludge and this is a review of their 2016 album "Ironclad" which was released by Czar Of Bullets.
A very dark, heavy yet melodic sound starts off the album and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording while the vocals are done in a clean singing fashion and the power chords bring in more of a doom metal style and the solos and leads also bring in a great amount of melody.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and after awhile the music starts incorporating elements of sludge and stoner metal into a more traditional style of doom metal and all of the songs stick a very slow musical direction and the album also remains very heavy from beginning to ending of the recording.
Wolf Counsel plays a style of doom metal that is mostly rooted in the traditional side of t he genre while also adding some of the stoner and sludge style heaviness to give the music a more modern feeling, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover spirituality, mysticism and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Wolf Counsel are a very great sounding doom metal band with touches of stoner and sludge and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pure As The Driven Snow" "The Everlasting Ride" and "Wolf Mountain". 8 out of 10.
