||Wolves CD (2007)
Johannes Prem music CDs Until the early 21st century, females fronting extreme metal bands were virtually unheard of. But with the emergence of groups such as Arch Enemy, the genre is no longer comprised solely of male musicians -- which has subsequently opened the doors for other similarly styled bands, including Deadlock. Two years after their 2005 debut, Earth.Revolt, comes their sophomore set, Wolves, which sees part-time vocalist Sabine Weniger signed on full-time. Weniger's melodic vocals are split evenly with Godzilla growler Johannes Prem throughout, with the album opener, "World Domination," being a prime example of "the Deadlock sound." But there's not much "metallic groundbreaking" going on here, just a whole lot of riffing and precise double bass drumming, in addition to Weniger and Prem's alternating vocals, which isn't much different from the boatload of other similarly styled metal acts on the scene. ~ Greg Prato
