Wolfsmyth

Band Contact: Griffin Bach

Hot hot hot! The handle is hot! Get an oven mitt because this frying pan is sputtering with scalding hot riffs that taste a lot like Thin Lizzy and Pantera but have notes of GnR, Queen, and Maiden. The whole concoction smells strongly of early Van Halen and has a lightly progressive aftertaste while never sullying the taste buds with pretension. It tastes even better as leftovers.
