SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars The French band WOLFSPRING was formed in 2009, initially as a creative vehicle for Jean-Pierre Louveton, also known as a member of Nemo. Fellow bandmate Fontaine decided to join in as well, adding his creative and musical capabilities, with metal drummer Moro-Sibilot and vocalist Clemens taking on the remaining musical duties for this venture. Their self-titled debut album was released in the summer of 2010 by Progrock Records.

Those who generally find heavy art-rock as well as progressive metal to be interesting will most likely enjoy the musical universe WolfSpring has made a first go at exploring with this disc. The emphasis on strong atmospheres and distinct moods over technical virtuosity and challenging compositional features should appeal to those who enjoy listening to bands like the aforementioned Presto Ballet, and I'd hazard a guess that followers of Porcupine Tree might also find WolfSpring to be an interesting acquaintance.

3 stars 3.5 realy

Wolfspring, the side project of french prog rock band Nemo guitarist and vocalist Jean-Pierre Louveton, is a young band delivering some intristing progressive rock arrangements with a metal touch. The music offerd by Wolfspring is from progressive metal , just check out the instrumental Carpathian Wolves, not far from Metallica fame in manner of riffing, to a more ethereal lanscapes. The album overall has some magnific musicianship, and pieces are enough long to capture the attentian of any progressive rock fan and progressive metal aswell. In places is quite similar with Nemo, but a little less complex and the keybords are used here only sporadic only for the atmosphere, but never the less good. So, a pleasent surprise for me this band that for sure needs attentian in the future.3.5 for sure.

4 stars Having previously reviewed the second album from the side project of Nemo singer/guitarist JP Louveton, here we go back to 2010 and the debut where JP provided guitar, bass and vocals and was joined by Julian Clemens (vocals), Guillaum Fontaine (keys) and Ludo Moro-Sibilot (drums), all of which also played on the follow-up, 2013's 'Who's Gonna Save The World?' As with their later album, here is a progressive band that are at times very metallic, more so than the prog metal tag would normally suggest. But, there are also times when they have a very Porcupine Tree feel to the music, and this combined with strong musicianship and some great songs makes this an album that I fell in love with this the very first time I played it and the more I listened the more I got from it.

JP is always going to be associated with the mighty Nemo, and rightfully so, but this band feels much more than just a side-project, and when he riffs out on "Carpathian Wolves" I can feel the fun he is having by being able to play plenty of power chords and just blasting it out. This song in particular has a real Seventies groove, and I just want to keep turning it up. In fact, it's hard to type when I'm bouncing around as much as I do when listening to this, like the rest of the album it makes me smile, and isn't that what music is about? Enjoyment?

Having been playing this so much recently I am going to have to rediscover the latest album, then drop JP a line and ask when the next one is coming out! Superb.

4 stars I have to admit a certain degree of caution when I approached Wolfsping's debut CD, not being a true devotee of 'progressive metal' . With 'eclectic', 'symphonic', 'Canterbury','Jazz rock', 'Krautrock' or 'psychedelic/space rock' I feel as if I know what to expect and what I might like... not ... (read more)
