As far as WolveSpirit is concerned, I have to say that until now I didn’t really have the quintet from Würzburg on my radar. That changed a few days ago when the new album ‘Change the World’ was in my inbox.
WolveSpirit started in 2009 and it was the brothers Oliver and Richard Eberlein, as well as singer Debbie Craft, who founded the band. The debut album ‘Spirit Metal’ was released in 2011 and another four records were added in the course of time. With ‘Change the World’ the band adds another album and they do it in a very skillful way.
The band from Lower Franconia is passionately dedicated to energetic classic rock and also makes use of other genres. What WolveSpirit delivers on their new disc has a lot to offer. Already with the opener ‘Don’t You Know’ it becomes evident that no prisoners are taken here. Groove and power is what make the song a great introduction to the album. You immediately get a thirst for more and this desire is also fulfilled.
All in all, the album contains 13 songs that all together reflect a perfect flow. During almost an hour of playing time, there is no moment of boredom. No matter if you listen to the bluesy ‘Thunder and Lightning’ or lean back during the calmer tones of ‘Over the Rainbow’, the listening delight always remains the same. WolveSpirit are at their best, however, when they unleash the rock beast. ‘Strong Against the Wind’ is one of those rocking anthems on the album. The groovy and gritty ‘Time is Running’ is another tune not to be missed. The fascinating thing about these 13 songs is that the five-piece does not want to redefine rock music. Also a chumming up and trends is not the motivation for WolveSpirit. Rather, it is the passion and fascination for ingenious rock music what makes this album stand out. The raw voice of Debbie Craft, together with the hard and at the same time soulful guitar work make ‘Change the World’ a great album.
This longplayer shines with a liveliness and power that comes from within and doesn’t seem to be forced at any time. ‘Change the World’ is a well-done longplayer and one thing is certain, WolveSpirit will be a shining spot on my rock radar from now on.
