Costa Rican doom metallers Age of the Wolf are set to release their debut full-length, “Ouroboric Trances,“ on May 17th in digital, CD, and vinyl formats via Aural Music. This fuzz-worshipping outfit delivers crushing riffs and epic melodies, backed by an apocalyptic rhythm section that crosses all spectrums of the sludge/stoner/doom genre.
About Age of the Wolf
Formed in 2014 as a stoner rock-oriented act, Age of the Wolf released a self-titled EP which was nominated for Best Hard Rock Release in Costa Rica’s ACAM Awards. The track “Memorial” was featured in Flying Elephant’s Sessions at Botica Solera, a high-profile Costa Rican music spotlight series, as a result of winning a contest among several national bands. Overall, the EP has helped create a fan base and has allowed Age of the Wolf to play around the country in a regular basis.
The composing sessions for the debut album “Ouroboric Trances“ began in early 2017, with the band taking time to craft and blend their original sound in a thick wall of fuzz, harsh vocals, and slower tempos. The album was recorded live at Bushido Audio Studios in Cartago, Costa Rica by sound engineer Juan Pablo Calvo. The album is setting a new step in the sound of the band, focusing on the most organic, aggressive, and versatile side of Age of the Wolf.
