B.O.W – Brotherhood Of Wolves (2021)

Brotherhood Of Wolves” is B.O.W’s debut album, a project created in Spain by drummer Tommy Lopez and lyricist Vladimir Emelin, both collaborating with the late Ken Hensley (Uriah Heep) on his last record. After his death, they decided to launch this classic hard rock band with material partially wrote for Hensley, but also fresh material.
Because the pandemic, Lopez & Vladimir Emelin found plenty of time to write and arrange a lot of new songs, so decided to record the whole thing and release “Brotherhood Of Wolves” as a 2-CD debut.
And while there’s a bunch of songs to digest here – twenty-three – to be honest the consistent quality is maintained throughout the 2 discs, no filler in sight. It really helps the varied styles on offer – ranging from Seventies hard rock to Eighties melodic rock and some AOR splash here and here.
Also vocalist Marco May is a versatile singer with perfect English, and despite B.O.W’s indie origin, production & mix is really good…
