Absinthes.com have revealed the perfect absinthes for Halloween and of course one of them is by Swedish metallers WOLF. As previously published, the band unleashed their own brand of WOLF Absinthe on the world earlier this year, on 1st June, to coincide with vocalist Niklas Stålvind’s 40th birthday.
If you would like to concoct the The Devil’s Favourite for Halloween, follow the instructions below:
We have two particular absinthes in mind that match the theme of Halloween better than no other. But at first, we’d like to make a suggestion for a more than suitable cocktail recipe.
Halloween Cocktail: The Devil’s Favourite
- 4 cl WOLF Absinthe
- 3 cl Almond Sirup
- 1 cl Lemon Juice
- 4 Morello Cherries without stones
- Some Champagne
On the bottom of a mixing glass, muddle the morello cherries, lime juice and almond sirup. Add WOLF Absinthe together with ice, shake until well chilled. Strain the mix into a long, chilled cocktail glass (for example a champagne flute) and top with Champagne. You can use some nutmeg to garnish.
In other WOLF news, the band have completed writing songs for their seventh album and are ready to start recording soon. Stay tuned for more news!

Metal Shock Finland‘s Utilifest partners, Devilstone Open Air had a successful festival last weekend in Lithuania. For more information see our previous news at this location.
Swedish metallers WOLF appeared at the festival and some new fan filmed footage has been made available. Check out the video below:
Metal Shock Finland’s UTILIFEST partners at DEVILSTONE OPEN AIR 2013 have added Estonian up and coming thrash metal band CANTILENA to the bill. The festival organisers state:
“This fairly young band with boiling old-school thrash in their hearts is already acknowledged by the classics in the genre: CANTILENA was chosen as a supporting band by such veterans like SEPULTURA and OVERKILL. The music answers why: aggressive but at the same time melodic, CANTILENA’s thrash metal satisfies even the standards of spoilt westerners. The band’s debut “Violent Peace”, released in 2012, displays that three years are enough for maturity and finding a unique path.
DEVILSTONE provides an opportunity to appreciate what this aspiring Estonian ensemble has to offer. CANTILENA’s members state that their gigs are aggressive, but with honesty and respect, and the audience responds in the same way.“
Swedish metallers WOLF are also appearing at the festival, alongside other previously announce bands such as ENSLAVED, KADAVAR, AVULSED, VOMITORY and ORANGE GOBLIN. Also just announced are INDYGO, STIFFER, LOS TURBOS and THE PERFECT PILL.
