Australia's Werewolves burst onto the international death metal scene in early 2020 with a ferocious debut album that quickly garnered praise from critics and fans alike. Unable to tour, the band focused their energy on creativity, writing enough material to fill six full-length albums. They also found time to record their second album, What a Time To Be Alive, which hits stores on January 29, 2021, through Prosthetic Records.
Some may say Werewolves is cursed. After all, production on the band's debut album coincided with history-making wildfires that burned across Australia. The COVID-19 pandemic almost immediately followed the release of the album. What A Time To Be Alive is arriving just weeks after the riots at the US Capitol and the recent discovery of a more infectious strain of the coronavirus.
But Werewolves have a different outlook on life. Perhaps the chaos surrounding us is the world trying to prevent the most exciting death metal group in recent memory from dominating the planet. Maybe the universe understands the righteous power the band possesses, and it is going to great lengths to prevent them from growing even stronger.
The truth is anyone's guess. On this episode of Inside Music, host James Shotwell connects with Werewolves' bassist and lyricist Sam Bean to discuss his group's new music and his outlook on the insanity that is life in the modern age. Sam tells James about his writing process and even shares the hysterical truth behind some of the band's most iconic song titles.
