Finding background on the band Trevor and the Wolves is not easy. There seems to be precious little information on the world wide web and the small bit that can be found, is mostly written in Italian!
Trevor and The Wolves is the side project of death metal band Sadist’s vocalist, Trevor Sadist, and this album couldn’t be more different if it tried.
Featuring a number of special guests including Christian Meyer (Elio E Le Storie Tese), Stefano Cabrera (Gnu Quartet), Paolo Bonfanti, Grazia Quaranta, Francesco Chinchella and Daniele Barbarossa (Winterage), the new album Road to Nowhere was recorded at the Italian Nadir Music Studios in Genoa, under the expert supervision of Tommy Talamanca as producer.
With obvious influences from the hard rock end of the rock and metal spectrum, this is a good old-fashioned rock and roll album. Its simplistic in style but that in no way takes away from the appeal of the music.
Think the Brian Johnson era of AC/DC, mix it with a bit of Motörhead and Saxon, and you are somewhere close to what this band sound like. I am not a HUGE fan of any of the just mentioned bands, but I do like this album. The rough vocals of Trevor are ideally suited to this type of rock, there are riffs galore and at just under fifty minutes in length, there is plenty to get your listening gear round.
The guitar solos are simple yet expertly executed and you can just imagine the drummer and bass player bouncing around the stage keeping everyone in time. I personally love to see musicians making music other than what they are known for and, having listened to a bit of Sadist just for comparison purposes, this is nothing like what Trevor is known for.
With enough grit and gravel to line all the roads in England during a particularly cold snap of weather, I think this is a must for any hard rock fan’s collection. Slightly heavier than AC/DC, it still has the party feel about it and will certainly have you bounding round your living room strutting your stuff on your air guitar!
