“We are extremely happy to be working with Roy,” FireWolfe guitarist Paul Kleff said. “The new material is very heavy with a melodic side to it and we know that having Roy at the helm will give it that killer metal sound that he is known for For FireWolfe, it doesn’t get any better than Roy Z – the albums he has done with Judas Priest, Halford and Bruce Dickinson are incredible. It really goes without saying.”
Vocalist David Fefolt said that working with Roy is a perfect match for FireWolfe. “Roy and I have known each other for a long time, we’ve worked together in the past and it’s great to be working with him again.” Fefolt said. “Roy is one of the top guys in the metal world and his work speaks for itself. The new material is very strong and Roy’s work will put it over the top.”
