Swedish metallers WOLF will release their seventh studio album, “Devil Seed”, on August 25 in Europe and September 2 in North America via Century Media. This time around, the band worked with Jens Bogren (KREATOR, PARADISE LOST, OPETH) at Fascination Street Studios and has delivered not only a heavy-sounding release but also one chock-full of clarity and complexity. The cover artwork was once again created by Thomas Holm (MERCYFUL FATE, KING DIAMOND).
A lyric video for the CD’s first single, “My Demon”, can be seen below.
Comments WOLF founding member Niklas Stalvind: “Please enjoy ‘My Demon’, the first taste of the ‘Devil Seed’. Spread it, share it and play it loud! Watch out for the whole album in August.”
Fans will be pleased to hear that WOLF is not only still true to its musical ideal, but delivers a fresh and unique take on the sound that is their unmistakable trademark.
“I haven’t been this pleased with the songs on a WOLF album since the release of ‘Black Wings’,” says Niklas Stalvind. “I really think we have taking our songwriting to the next level on this one and I hope that the metal fans will love it as much as we do.”
A short time after the new album’s release, WOLF will take to the streets with a tour of the U.K., with further European dates to be announced soon.
WOLF in 2011 parted ways with guitarist Johannes “Axeman” Losbäck and replaced him with Simon Johansson (ABSTRAKT ALGEBRA, BIBLEBLACK, MEMORY GARDEN). Simon previously played with WOLF in 2009 when they supported W.A.S.P. for four shows.
WOLF‘s sixth album, “Legions Of Bastards”, was released in April 2011 via Century Media Records. The follow-up to 2009’s “Ravenous” was produced by Pelle Saether at Studio Underground in Vasterås, Sweden. The cover artwork was once again created by Thomas Holm (the man who was responsible for the legendary MERCYFUL FATE “Melissa” and “Don’t Break The Oath” covers).
