Metal Monday: Speedwolf

If you like Motorhead, you'll like Speedwolf. (If you don't like Motorhead, get the f -- well, you know.)

These guys have been around for a few years, but their first full-length album, Ride With Death, came out two weeks ago. A couple of tracks were streaming for free a few weeks ago, and having heard them, I have to agree with one review I read, which said (and I'm paraphrasing here) "Speedwolf doesn't do anything groundbreaking, but that doesn't mean that they still aren't really good."

The band isn't popular enough, or the album hasn't been out long enough, for the whole album to have shown up on YouTube yet. (Either that, or Speedwolf fans are more respectful of intellectual property than most.) For some reason, the player on the band's Myspace page isn't working on my computer -- it may on yours, though, so check it out. (They've got six tracks there.) You can also hear a couple of tracks on their Facebook page.

Finally, you can go here, a metal merch site that has some Speedwolf stuff. They've got three tracks -- "I am the Demon," "Denver 666," and "Speedwolf" streaming there. The music starts on its own as soon as you get there, so make sure your volume is up.
