Seattle-based hard rock band Wyatt Olney & The Wreckage tear the Pacific Northwest rock scene to shreds with their third studio album entitled 'Silver Bullet.'


The project features fan-favorite singles like "Get Haunted," "War Within," and "Trauma Queen" while clocking in at 44:44 with eleven jam-packed songs. Produced by Don Gunn (Deathcab for Cutie, King Crimson), Wyatt Olney & The Wreckage's 'Silver Bullet' is said to capture the listener's attention through its anthemic aggression and melodic vulnerability.


Opening the album with the intro track, "War Within," a powerful drum arrangement starts the track accompanied by a whaling electric guitar riff, a steady rhythm guitar, and the lead vocalist's hefty vocals that pierce our speakers with rage and angst. As Wyatt Olney & The Wreckage later transition into a blazing and upbeat instrumental atmosphere, we later become enthralled by the band's conceptual lyricism, taking us through the dynamic emotions of facing our inner war and gearing up for the fight ahead. The song's hook is wildly anthemic, as Wyatt Olney & The Wreckage take us through several instrumental transitions and tempo changes that leave us banging our heads until the outro.


Landing on the second track, "Allegory," we're met with more of a melodic and toe-tapping track through the band's quick tempos, intricate basslines, and layered electric guitar melodies that drench our speakers in energy. Not to mention the lead vocalist's clear and powerful vocal portrayal, he later brings listeners into the song's theme of sticking to your guns and facing life's trials and tribulations head-on. We're head over heels for the dense instrumental arrangements that Wyatt Olney & The Wreckage take us through, especially their ground-breaking electric guitar solos that bring us to our knees in need of rock's power and pressure.
