"Mammoth WVH" (EX1 Records; 2021)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Wolfgang Van Halen. The name alone is enough to get someone's attention, especially when it comes to music. His father was the legendary Van Halen. His uncle is the band's drummer, Alex Van Halen. And he spent fifteen years (more or less) playing bass for the band Van Halen. Okay, kid, you got my attention. What have you got?

Well, what we got here is one great record. WVH played all the parts of this recording and with it is tight, concise music that simply sounds great. Twelve songs running 58 minutes and it's nothing but solid rock'n'roll throughout. Now, I cannot say that his vocal style is anything to write home about, but what he does he does with style. Think rock'n'roll is dead? "Mammoth WVH" will change your mind.

WVH has the rock'n'roll gene. It is alive and kicking on this recording. He can play fucking rock'n'roll music like he was born to do it and, actually, I think he was.

Rock on Wolfie! I cant wait to hear what you do in the coming years!

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
