"For The Wolf sound like Paramore after a loooong horror movie binge. They're bloody great!" - George Garner, Deputy Editor

"Rue Morgue"

"Freshly inked to HorrorHound magazine's label, For The Wolf is female-fronted hard stoner rock out of Tulsa, Oklahoma. With a punk edge and lust for the macabre, lead howler Kristy Emory and Husband Coby sound sort of like Deftones with Dance Hall Crashers vocals. Those chops range from slow, dark 'n' doomy to a more rigorous punk-metal hybrid...Darkness and light, salvation and damnation, celluloid nightmares and Carly Simon; if you're gonna turn on the dark for any reason, you might as well do it For The Wolf." - Tomb Dragomir

"When the Pieces Fit-For The Wolf finds it's place with Turn on the Dark."

"For The Wolf, Tulsa’s not quite punk, not quite metal horror-rock band. Armed with big guitar riffs, a charismatic female lead vocalist with an equally large rock voice, and a sinister sense of humor........ Although the band is hard to paint into a corner, it has always been fiercely independent – and not in an “indie-rock” kind of way. No, this isn’t trendy, hipster, indie music. It’s from the gut, straight up rock and roll, informed by a variety of sources, from punk and metal to commercial rock and stoner rock and movies ranging from Bella Lugosi to The Exorcist to Ghostbusters and Gremlins." - Gary Hizer

"The Art and Obsessions of Joe Whiteford"

“I just finished this illustration for the alternative rock band For The Wolf from Oklahoma. I'm normally not into harder sounding music, but I listened to these guys the whole time I was drawing this piece and have to admit that they have some pretty catchy material. I'm probably way off here but the bands Evanescence and Pretty Girls Make Graves come to mind as possible influences. They're not limited to just rock though. Their sound ranges from poppy to dark and moody. Definitely worth a look if you're into alternative rock or punk bands with girl singers.” - Joe Whiteford

"Urban Tulsa Weekly"

“All you need to know is that it looks like we've finally got another strong female voice on the local rock scene...this may well be the band with the most raw potential on this year's collection. ” - G.K. Hizer
