French true heavy metal squad LONEWOLF has signed a multi-album deal with the German label Karthago Records. The band's brand new studio CD, "The Dark Crusade", will be released on November 11.

"The Dark Crusade" was mixed and mastered by the Grammy-nominated guitarist Andy La Rocque of KING DIAMOND and was produced by Bart Gabriel (editor-in-chief of the biggest Polish rock/metal magazine Hard Rocker, who also helmed albums from such groups as CRYSTAL VIPER, SABBAT and KAT). The front cover artwork was painted by Chris Moyen, the legendary French artist who has previously worked with SLAYER, TRIVIUM, BEHERIT and BLASPHEMY. Guest musicians on the CD include Majk Moti (ex-RUNNING WILD, now in WILD KNIGHT), Jan B√ľnning (PARAGON) and Marta Gabriel (CRYSTAL VIPER).

According to a press release, "The Dark Crusade" is being promoted with the slogan "The Reaper has returned to the Black Hand Inn", as it was strongly inspired by classic albums from such cult acts as RUNNING WILD, GRAVE DIGGER, X-WILD, U.D.O. and ACCEPT.
