Swedish metallers WOLF have commenced the songwriting process for their next album. According to the band, "Some solid ideas are taking form and the ViperStudio will soon burn with WOLF demos. Niklas [Stålvind; guitar/vocals] is on fire and when that happens, you gotta stand back. Johannes [Losbäck; guitar] will soon jump in the fire with him, and evetually the whole band will be joining in." The group adds, "We're really looking forward to topping 2009's 'Ravenous'."
In other news, WOLF will film footage at its February 27 concert in Gothenburg, Sweden for an upcoming video. The clip is being helmed by Morningstar Films.
WOLF will embark on a mini-tour of its home country in April. The band states, "We couldn't afford a seven dates of hell tour, so we'll settle for three."
The details are as follows:
April 01 - Harry B James - Stockholm, Sweden
April 02 - Club Monster - Gävle, Sweden
April 03 - Tranan - Bollnäs, Sweden
WOLF's latest album, "Ravenous", was released in North America on March 24, 2009 via Century Media Records. The CD features a guest guitar solo by Hank Shermann (FORCE OF EVIL, MERCYFUL FATE) and guest vocals by Mark Boals (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, ROYAL HUNT). For the fierce and bloody artwork, the band once again decided to work with its longtime cover artist Thomas Holm (MERCYFUL FATE). Topped off by the phenomenal production by Roy Z (BRUCE DICKINSON, JUDAS PRIEST), "Ravenous" promises "a heavy metal delicacy par excellence!"
