Denver's Speedwolf plays ripping thrash metal with heaps of Motörhead influence, from the gravelly vocal delivery down to the dirty thrash-rock riffage. Speedwolf is no tribute band, however; d-beat-style intensity and impressive technicality set Speedwolf apart from the cookie-cutter bands. Have you seen the cover of last's year's full-length, Ride With Death? Half-man, half-wolves wearing jean biker vests ride choppers across the open highway, while the Grim Reaper — who looms over the horizon as large as the setting sun — looks on. That image pretty much sums up this band nicely.

Choice Pedigree: Members of Speedwolf used to play in crossover band DDC, also from Denver, which played St. Louis from time to time in the mid-aughts.
