The Origin of Suffering (MySpace.com/BloodWolfMusic)

Bloodwolf's visceral second EP sounds sorta like Germanic metal — except that modern Germany has strict laws that prevent this level of hatred and bared-molar aggression. In Cleveland, however, such outbursts are not only welcome; they're encouraged. Hailing from our city's darker corners, the trio stains the semi-Teutonic steel with blotches of hardcore — which only quickens the triphammer double-bass rolls and hand-cramp shredding, moves that would give the guys in Kreator a bad case of the spins. Snarling and hissing like a trapped wild animal, singer-bassist David Maynard has death on his mind and in his throat in songs like "The Fall of Man," "Hate This Flesh," and "I Am Violence."
