Reviews A Wilhelm Scream Self Titled

A Wilhelm Scream

Self Titled

A Wilhelm Scream are back. After a period of absence the mighty punks from the northeast are back. The band seemed to dissapear for a period after their last full length. While that record was good it felt like it wasn't up to their standard. Some songs didn't roll by as smoothly as others.

Come 2010 and they are back with a new label and renewed strength. The songs roll by at a fast clip. Each song comes complete with strong vocals and their trademark strong near metallic guitar riffs. everything moves in unison fitting together in perfect harmony.

Not a song seems out of place as they go by. Each has its own hook whether it be a nice sing-along or just a catchy riff. the vocals are as gruff as ever with a sense of anger that didn't seem there on the last release.

This is the return of one of the stronger melodic punk bands of our day. This record should signal a new era if they can parlay this energy into a full length we might have something better than ever.
