Wolfpack haben erst im April ihr neues Album A.D. über Beatdown Hardwear veröffentlicht. Wir nahmen das Release zum Anlass Sänger Hradrien seine 10 Lieblingsplatten vorstellen zu lassen – und ab dafür!
1Rammstein – Mutter
I chose this first one because it’s the first album that my mum gave me (she probably thought about a joke with the name of the album). From this time I became a hard fan of Rammstein and it’s been my introduction into heavy music. I can listen this album in every moment of my life.
2Slipknot – Iowa
Came juste after Mutter in my life. I love the production of this record. With this album Slipknot made something incredible, blending a mainstream music with very heavy and filthy roots. Their first two albums of Slipknot are probably the biggest inspiration for Wolfpack.
3Kickback – No Surrender
I got into hardcore with this album! I’ve been a metalhead for years but never been really into hardcore. It’s the best melt we could do between black metal and hardcore, in my opinion – and that’s how a black metal kid get into hardcore. No Surrender was a game changer for many guys of my generation.
4Hangman’s Chair – It’s Not Supposed To Be Positive
If Paris was a movie, this would be the soundtrack, it’s a melt between romantisme and pure depression. Sounds like Baudelaire playing doom metal.
5Deftones – Around The Fur
I discovered Deftones with this one. It was hard to choose one of their albums because I love all they’ve done. It’s a music allowing your mind to escape from reality, it draws landscapes in your mind… Also the best music to listen to hit the road when the sun shines.
6Code Orange – Forever
They are my favorite actual band, because they bring back all the nostalgia that i have from the metal of 90’s and early 2000 but with new codes and a badass attitude. Also we all saw this band growing bigger release after release and it’s really inspiring. This album, to me, is a sign of success, and I love the fact that they turn into something very industrial with such heavy parts: THIS is really my stuff.
7xMAROONx – Antagonist
It’s my favorite album of edge metal, it’s raw as hell, there is a sulfur atmosphere… There is also a guest from heaven shall burn in a song and this part is one of the most savage thing I ever heard. If apocalypse would come, I’ll probably listen to this album, it would be a perfect soundtrack.
8Harm’s Way – Become A Machine
It’s to me the most complete album of Harm’s way. The electro samples and the riffing fit so well in this one. There is a clinical atmosphere that I love. Probably one of the best album to make sport or to motivate yourself!
9Cannibal Corpse – Gallery of Suicide
The first record I chosed by myself at 10 or 11 years old just for the gore cover of the album. Also the first record that introduce me to extreme metal. I listened a lot of black and death metal after that but this is my basement.
10Lana Del Rey – Born To Die
The production and the melodies of this album are incredible, it’s just a melt between depression and summer chill, when I need to focus on myself or need to sleep it’s like a sad lullaby under the sun of california.
