On October 25th, heavy metal rockers Bad Wolves released their sophomore effort "N.A.T.I.O.N." It features a dozen tracks that continue the band's growth as a powerhouse juggernaut, as they find themselves touring alongside Five Finger Death Punch and Three Days Grace this November, along with Megadeth in 2020. Bad Wolves come blasting out of the gate with the chugging rhythm of "I'll Be There," followed by the intense pounding and stellar singing/screaming vocals of "No Messiah." The energy keeps on flowing through the aggressive appeal of "Learn To Walk Again" and "Killing Me Slowly," before letting up on gas pedal for the mainstream power ballads "Better Off This Way" and "Sober." Bad Wolves wrap up their new album with the hardcore metal attack of "The Consumerist," as they flex their metal muscle, before closing with the emotionally addictive sound of "Crying Game" and the final energetic blast of "LA Song."
