待望の3作目は、アルバム一枚でひとつの物語を描いたバンド初のコンセプト作。軽やかなアイリッシュ風の“vitamin 64”や、アコギ主体で展開されるカントリー調の“Searching life”、3パートで構成された6分半に及ぶナンバー“babylon”など、物語を表現するために必要なパーツを集めた結果、バンドの音楽性を拡張させることに繋がった印象だ。もちろん、メタリックなフレーズでフロアをカオスにする“evils fall”のようなアッパーな楽曲も収録されている。また初回盤は、〈Purefly〉という物質を巡るMWAM作のSF冒険活劇に、「デビルマン」などで知られる永井豪率いるダイナミックプロが挿絵を担当したストーリーブック付属の濃厚仕様! 物語も作っちゃうなんて恐るべしだな、オオカミたち……。

[English Translation]
The wolves are finally back with their 3rd album, - this time, the band’s first time concept production presenting a spectacular chronicle through one album. Tracks such as the buoyant Irish tune “vitamin 64”, country style “Searching life” garnished with splendid acoustic guitar rendition or “babylon”, a 6 and a half minute long composition consisting of 3 sections, all take significant parts in portraying the story, clearly demonstrating the obvious amplification of the band’s musical dimension. Of course though, their signature upper-beatness is alive and kicking, as proven in “evils fall”, a track bound to send the audience into frenzies with its intoxicating metallic refrains. The limited first edition of the album comes with a luxurious storybook based on an SF swashbuckler written by the members of cut and thrusts over the mysterious matter "purefly", and of which artworks were commissioned to Dynamic Production, led by Go Nagai known so famously for his “Devilman” cartoons. So, the wolves can write stories?! After all, ‘wolfgangs’ have been known to be geniuses…
