There are good band names and there are fantastic names, Wolfmangler is among the latter!
I first came across the band while browsing the excellent label Aurora Borealis for new interesting stuff, when I suddenly saw, in bold text, Wolfmangler. Lest to say, my curiosity was instantly sparked and I started looking up more info on the band. The more I read about the band the more intriguing they became; a drone black metal band featuring Bowed double bass, electric bass and violin with wispered, sinister vocals and lyrical themes about mysticism, abstract concepts and wolves.
The band is a project started by D. Smolken, formely a member of Dead Raven Choir, which is a raw black metal/accoustic folk band from Poland and is also avaiable at Aurora Borealis.
Cooking With Wolves is music from the deepest, darkest void. Foreboding, dismal violins, soft tribal drums and a whispering evil voice bellowing out dark lyrics. The album is filled with a dreadful atmosphere that never leaves and is best listened to in the pitch black night or at a sardonic ritual.
Any self-respecting drone/dark folk fan should look up Wolfmangler!
