Wet Animal  


Wet Animal is one of several bands that emerged in one form or another following Trouble's long hiatus in the mid-nineties. The roots of this project date as far back as 1995, a collaboration featuring Trouble men Rick Wartell and Ron Holzner along with singer/guitarist Shane Pasqualla. For various personal reasons the project was shelved around 1997, and remained dormant until Pasqualla and Wartell decided to give it another go in 2003, eventually leading to the band's self-titled album in 2005. Wartell's guitar tone is unmistakeable, but this is no Trouble clone, and aside from the cover of the Pentagram classic "Relentless", there are scant traces of Wartell's past. Wet Animal is very much a hard rock album, soulful and bluesy, with Guns'n'Roses and Alice In Chains frequently coming to mind when listening to the tunes, due in no small part to Pasqualla's classic hard rock voice. Despite Wartell's work with the rejuvenated Trouble, Wet Animal is a priority for all involved.
