The band is a blend of classic metal and power thrash. For fans of bands like Judas Priest, Saxon, Blind Guardian, Helloween, Manowar.
The album was mastered by Jack Kosto guitarist in Seven Spires, and the band brought in a professional chamber choir for the song Fallen Angels Prayer.
«The album was recorded at Wolf Lake Studios in Lac-des-Loups, Quebec. It’s a unique experience to record there as essentially, it’s a studio in a cabin in the woods. The area is very atmospheric and there’s aren’t that many outward distractions around so the band could be productive and focus on the music. It’s was like a camping trip mixed with the recording».
Mark Of The Wolf is a combination of old and new songs; back in 2017, Lycanthro released a four-track demo that received great feedback, but the quality left something to be desired. Three of those four tracks Crucible, Into Oblivion and Ride The Dragon are included in this new offering. Old fans will enjoy the improved production and new fans will probably be sucked into the mythos of the band.
«This album is a diverse listening experience. Even though everything in one way or another is under the umbrella of Power or Thrash metal, there is something for everyone on here in terms of melodic metal (except for screams haha). There are soaring high vocals, epic guitar solos, lots of harmonies, heavy chugging riffs, a few odd instruments, and even a breakdown or two. We firmly believe in making a diverse listening experience and this album is no different, there’s something everyone on this album», states Lycanthro.
