Migrate Music Review: Powerwolves – You Won’t Find Peace

You Won’t Find Peace, the debut full length from Powerwolves is a punch in the face from beginning to end. The music is fast and in your face, reminiscent of Pulling Teeth. Yet, through all the intensity it still contains a certain amount of melody. At times the album reminds me of The Esoteric, and at others it reminds me of Hate your Guts. Although the style of music is not exactly novel, fans of hardcore will find much enjoyment in this album. The entire album contains a certain amount of groove behind all of it, even when it slows down. You won’t be able to help but bob your head to songs like the title track, “You Won’t Find Peace”. Aside from that, there are lots of parts in the album that are reminiscent of old ‘circle pit’ hardcore punk. For fans of Pulling Teeth, The Hope Conspiracy, Hate Your Guts, Swampthing and whole slew of contemporary hardcore.
