AUSTINIST: Le Diamant Brut: Fun Fun Fun Fest Edition w/ Pack of Wolves @ FFF FEST - SUNDAY @ 12:30 on the Black Stage
PACK OF WOLVES
What’s the Deal: Austin isn’t really a place that you would count among the cities in the nation with a thriving metal scene. No, it’s more of a folk, singer/songwriter, country blues, indie rock kind of place. But, one of the few metal outfits the city can boast is Pack of Wolves. The band - Trey Ramirez (vocals, guitar), Tyson J Swindell (guitar), Adrian Carrillo (drums) and Alec Padron (bass) - released their sophomore album, Betrayer, on vinyl earlier this year on Austin’s Arclight Records.
The title track from the new album begins hearty and heaving as any metal band should. They bring in a little compound double bass pedal thud, chugging distortion and some throaty yells, and they’re up and running. POW made a video for Betrayer’s “Concession” in what looks like a junk metal warehouse with fog rolling in at the band’s feet and everything. It’s actually the perfect setting.
Something Interesting: Pack of Wolves will be on the Black stage at Fun Fun Fun Fest on Sunday, November 8th at 12:35pm. It’s sure to be a rowdy pit, so pack your protective gear. You know, black shirts, tight jeans, Converse and such.
