Be The Wolf – Imago

Be The Wolf
by Dave “That Metal Guy” Campbell at 06 December 2015, 3:21 PM

BE THE WOLF is a Modern Rock band based out of Italy. “Imago” contains ten tracks.

“Signs” leads off the album. It’s a mid-tempo track that definitely fits the genre description. The vocal range is impressive and this is something that you could hear on the radio. “Chameleon” has a little more pick-me-up and extended chorus, and once again it’s the vocals that make the song shine. The riff is a bit meaner and this song comes closer to the Rock side of the style. “The Fall” is a nicely done song, flowing some more emotional elements into the track and really hitting hard on big hooks. “24” has a swinging quality, complete with finger snapping and a rhythmic main riff. This song establishes some style to the album for sure.

“The Comedian” has a little more energy and a lengthy chorus that keeps your focus on the product on point. The riff is easy listening and it just hangs out there for you to grab. There is definitely a story involved in the song “Florida’s Murderer.” This time I get more of a Punk/Pop vibe reminiscent of bands like BLINK 182. There is a dark quality to the raucous fun supplied by the quickened pace and guitar chords. “Dust In Hoffman” is a play on words on the famous actor, that materializes with a lot of vocal harmony and drawn out notes really oozing with feeling. "The House of the Dead Snow” is slower and more reserved and more complex in its delivery. I think if I was going to pick a song to showcase the sound on the album this would probably be the one. Closing the album is “One Man Wolfpack.” There is a little more suspense in the beginning leading to more of a wall of sound from the riff rarely letting up.

For the genre the collection of tracks here is fairly diverse. I don’t think there were any surprises necessarily but it’s an honest take on the style. At times I get a vibe from bands like MAROON 5 and PARAMORE, and as I have stated before much of the strength lies in the vocal abilities of Federico.
