This week Ryan Adams’ announced the return of his metal planned act known as “Werewolph.” I’m not sure if this is leading him out of his retirement, but I hope so. I love Ryan’s work, I really do, but besides the little bit of growl in his voice that doesn’t even last more than a few seconds overall, it could nicely fit on Rock N Roll. That’s not a bad thing by any means, but hell I was expecting like freaking Slayer to come out here. The record will be pressed this week on his label Pax-Am and will be titled Orion. Your guess is as good as mine as to what the rest of this vinyl only album release is going to sound like overall. We’re off to a good start though. Can we hope he’ll be back on the road again? We’ll have to wait and see.
Though we still haven’t gotten over the fact that Ryan Adams has ‘retired’ from making music, at least we still get to see the altcountry rocker online. Not only is he chatting it up about his new website project(s), http://ryanada.ms , but he also gives us some stripped down live performances from his house, complete with stuffed animal intro (be sure to check out his video of ‘Crossed Out Name’. Classic. Ryan also promises some unreleased Werewolph tracks on his new site, which if we recall was his fake ‘hard rock’ project.
