LeWolf Drives like a bat outta hell on a runaway crazy train... with vocals as smooth as a lovers whisper... 🐺 Favorite track: Derelict Minds (feat. Kevin Moore).

yardiego I have had this album in my music folder for about a year, when i suddenly start listening to it, it became my favorite real fast, im playing non-stop again and again everyday since last month. Thanks for being this awesome! Favorite track: The Narrowing of Meaning (feat. Richard Henshall).

Alienmold Avandra delivers an impressive experience that feels like being rocked gently to sleep in a crib floating through the empty void. It hits all the right buttons combing soft and downright sweet vocals, and smooth and elegant guitar. One of my most listened to albums.
