    Grandiose Wolf delivers with ‘Bachelor’

    Grandiose Wolf delivers with Bachelor

    To put it simply: Patrick Wolf is over the top.

    Wolf, who is known for his grandeur and intensity, has been in the news recently due to an onstage freak-out. Word spread quickly online — via celebrity gossip sites like Perez Hilton’s — that Wolf threw a fit on stage during a concert in early August. The British pop-rocker yelled, cussed and threw mic stands about in what he called an “”expression of anger … (he) will not apologize for”” via Twitter. Despite the drama, Wolf later tweeted his apologies and, if anything, gained more attention for his delightfully interesting new album, The Bachelor.

    The drama of Wolf’s music is undeniably his own. His newest album delivers with epic drama and a wide variety of sounds all pulled into one album. Although intended to be a double album, The Bachelor came out as a single disc and is proving to be a musical force to be reckoned with.

    From indie rock-inspired tracks like “”Hardtimes”” to the heavier “”Battle,”” which offers something more reminiscent of metal, Wolf’s sound is an intense blend of many musical elements. Organ and intense vocals laid on top of synthesized, sterile and cold music all blend into a successfully odd and unique sound.
