Just announced for pre-order, the newest record from BLACKLISTED vocalist’s side project HARM WÜLF has just been announced. The newly regrouped band now features additional members and will release a follow up to its 2013 Deathwish Inc. debut in late August. Check out the first track coming from “Hijrah” and lear more details below.
“HARM WÜLF is G. Hirsch, known for his lyrical and vocal work in Blacklisted. HARM WÜLF is inspired by a range of artists: from the tranquil resonance of Low, to the rhythmic acoustic strumming of Strength Through Joy, and the ascending power of Angels Of Light. Even calling to the insular/grotesque Americana of Cormac McCarthy and Flannery O’Connor, etc. Most times sparse and austere and at others apocalyptically orchestrated, HARM WÜLF has the sound of something long since missing.
“Hijrah” is the emotional sophomore album from HARM WÜLF. Where the debut album (Deathwish, 2013) was primarily built on the singer/songwriter experience, “Hijrah” introduces a wash of stark instrumentation with Jon Nean of Blacklisted on Bass and engineer/musician Arthur Rizk (Inquisition, Prurient) on Percussion backing G. Hirsch as he performs all vocal, guitar, and harmonica duties. Altogether they have created a dark and emotional atmosphere that is more fully realized than ever before.”
