WOLF's latest album, "The Black Flame", will be released on vinyl. The Swedish underground label Blackcave Records, under license from Century Media, will put out a limited edition of 500 copies through the Blackcave mailorder. The LP will be signed and numbered by the band.
Commented the band: "There was never a doubt about releasing 'The Black Flame' as vinyl record. Though we've been getting alot of questions regarding the matter, we just wanted to wait for the right time to do it and we feel that we've reached that point now. Vinyl records are very important for us and our fans and it is an important element of the heavy metal community. It's just like denim & leather — we're naked without it."
