Wolf Spider:Drifting In The Sullen Sea

Metal Mind Productions are apparently the largest independent record label in Poland and its not difficult to work out the reasons why. Not only do they release some superb new music (Satellite's Nostalgia being a recent case in point) but they also undertake a re-mastering / re-issue campaign that pays very careful attention to detail and ensures CD releases for those hard to find, long lost and obscure Metal gems. In an era where more and more providers are concentrating exclusively on digital mediums it is refreshing to find a label that still believes in supplying a quality, tangible, product and this reissue of Wolf Spider's Drifting in the Sullen Sea is a perfect example; digipack, gold disc, limited edition and bonus tracks are all included to help make this a very worthy purchase.

Highly acclaimed in their native country Wolf Spider were Poland's leading exponents of technical Thrash at the start of the 1990's of which Drifting... was the third of their four albums before the band called it a day in 1991 having been unable to achieve the necessary commercial success to secure the bands future. For a Thrash album this is still very accessible and comes with more than a hint of melody and in particular the opening call to arms of 'Blind Faith', 'Liberated Woman' and 'Inclined' all make a solid impression with the requisite number of intricate riffs and intelligent touches. Whilst they may never have become a household name in Thrash circles fans of this era would be well advised to check them out. In fact if they had been based in the Bay Area as opposed to Eastern Europe their future might very well have turned out decidedly different.
