Evergreen Terrace - Wolfbiker
Metal Blade Records
Evergreen Terrace has always straddled the line between metal, hardcore and punk. It's only appropriate that their move to Metal Blade Records also brings a little more of a metal vibe.

Wolfbiker still has a lot of hardcore and punk influences, but many of the songs have a harder edge and lean toward the metal side of the spectrum. They've combined the crunch of metal with the melody of punk and attitude of hardcore. Breakdowns are in ample supply, and although there isn't much originality, Evergreen Terrace follow the formula very well.

This is one of those CDs where the song titles aren't usually mentioned at all in the lyrics, which leaves room for creative titles. One of those is "Chaney Can't Quite Riff Like Helmet's Page Hamilton." The vocals on the album are a combination of hardcore screaming and melodic singing with a few shoutalong/singalong choruses. Wolfbiker is an energetic album, and they've laid out the tracks nicely with an opener that grabs you, really strong songs in the middle, and then ending on a high note with "The Damned."
