The fourth full-length album by Italian Thrash Metal band.
Hyades making a good job on "The Wolves Are Getting Hungry". Their music is alive and good, having some very good melodies here and there, with great amounts of energy, and some rhythmic changes that really can catch us by the ears. It's a massive mix between harsh voices (using aggressive tunes of Marco's normal voice), powerful guitar, thunderous rhythmic kitchen, very good backing vocals, and this alchemy is something good.
The sound quality is very good, giving the band clearness they need to be understood on all songs, but be careful: it is as heavy and furious as a truck running down a mountain, without control and at full speed!
The songs are fine, being the best ones "Ignorance is No Excuse" (a violent and nasty blow on the mouth, having very good guitars and tempos); the mastodon marching on a crystal store called "The Decay of Humankind" (the rhythmic session is perfect, due the song has a not so fast tempos, and a very good vocal work); the thunderous and fierce "The Great Lie" (we can see a very good technical approach done on guitars and drums here); the Old School fashioned "Eight Beers After"; and the strong "The Wolves Are Getting Hungry" (these tempo changes are very good).
Again: the band is not doing anything new at all, but we can like it a lot without caring about it. And to be honest, who cares about it?! “The Wolves Are Getting Hungry” is good effort from Hyades, enjoy it a lot!!
