The Wolves Are Hungry is the first full-length album by the band The More I See. Despite their British origin, they are heavily influenced by American Metal acts like Metallica and Anthrax.

Lead guitarist Guzz Butt once was The Prodigy’s tour-guitarist (The Fat Of The Land tour), but today he has turned to a much more guitar driven style of music. The riffs are heavy, the solos are energetic, and the rhythm section precisely builds up under the aggression of the sound. The singing is, if not very sensational, a sensitive vocal guide through the tracks.

Despite their aggression, the band hangs onto melodious vocal lines … despite their dark approach, they still have a feel-good vibe to their expression. Even songs named “Violate,” “Near Extinction,” “Friend Turn Enemy,” and “Last Hope” won’t get close to support a bad mood. These four tracks are all great, and along with the track “Chez Wrong,” they constitute the album’s finest moments.

The overall sound is as clear and sharp as it is heavy and punching. This to a great extent is thanks to producer Andy Sneap, who earlier also laid his clever hands on the work of bands like Testament, Napalm Death, Machine Head, Arch Enemy, and Masterplan.

The More I See’s problem, however, is that the more they sound like their aforementioned idols, Metallica and Anthrax, the better they get. Maybe you can build a career on such a thing, but all would have benefited more from a “genuine” way of arranging the band’s debut album.
