‘Kill the Hunted’ is the first new studio album from Orange County, California metal merchants LEATHERWOLF since 2006’s ‘World Asylum’, and it is a record as uncompromising and deadly as the title suggests.
The album marks the latest chapter in the band’s often turbulent history as original drummer, (and main driving force), Dean Roberts and long-time guitarist Rob Math are joined by fierce new vocalist Keith Adamiak and young shredder Luke Man, along with a pair of veterans: Barry Sparks (bass) and Wayne Findlay (guitar), both alumni of the storied Michael Schenker Group.
‘Kill the Hunted’ is an 11-course metal feast for the senses that runs the gamut from visceral daggers such as the in-your-face opener ‘Hit the Dirt’ and shinkicker ‘Madhouse’, to the anthemic ‘Only the Wicked’, the Wolves’ prog minded multi-tier gem, ’The Henchman’ (featuring guest lead guitars by Joel Hoekstra of Whitesnake), and the tense and brooding ‘(Evil) Empires Fall’ whose vibes recall the crushing ‘Kill and Kill Again’ off their eponymous 1984 debut EP.
In a classic full circle moment, Leatherwolf have re-connected with engineer Randy Burns (Megadeth, Kreator, Helstar) who manned the boards for the aforementioned 1984 EP. Burns was eager to jump aboard and apply his mixing expertise to ‘Kill the Hunted’ before the files were put into the hands of L.A. mastering legend, Tom Baker (Judas Priest, Bruce Dickinson, Pantera), for the final polish.
The eye catching ‘Kill the Hunted’ artwork was created by noted artist Marc Sasso, whose credits include Dio, Halford and Rob Rock.
