Wide Open

Wide Open
(N.I.L.8 Records - 2000)

It's been a few years since we heard of Leatherwolf the last time, but the band is still alive. Last year they returned to Germany to play at the Wacken Open-Air. On stage we saw the Californian quintet rocking, just the haircuts had changed! Now with Wide Open the present their musical gems recorded at 5 shows between December 1998 and May 1999. A great collection incl. Spiter, Street Ready, Hideaway, Thunder and Endangered Species. In 1984 the band released a self-titled EP in the States. A year later the first album been released: Endangered Species.
After 2 more albums (1987 Leatherwolf / 1989 Street Ready) and several tours the interest in the band decrease due to the change of the public interest. But the band of singer Michael Oliveiri never gave up and now they are back! The original line-up and even members of their crew are with them for more than a decade! A hard working band which will continue this way. This collection of live anthems make me hope to see the band soon hitting the stages!
The artwork might look a little strange, but the music sounds still great and the sound quality of this live recordings are amazing! This is a must for every metal head!
