Swedish heavy metal act, WOLF, have just revealed their new line up featuring drummer Johan Koleberg (ex-HAMMERFALL, ex-THERION ) and bass player Pontus Egberg (KING DIAMOND) who joined the band after former members, Anders “Tornado” Modd and Richard “Raptor” Holmgren left the band after 12 years. Century Media Records posted a video online showing the band’s new line up at Simon‘s SolnaSound Production Studio.
Vocalist and guitarist Niklas Stålvind comments:
“We are super excited to launch a batch of new WOLF songs with the new line-up and play live in 2020 and beyond. While Pontus and Johan might be new faces in WOLF, they are hardly new to the metal scene, with many years of touring and countless records under their belts. If the WOLF fans like their playing half as much as Simon and I do, they will love it! We’re eager to go on tour now and show the guys that WOLF fans are the best!
In addition to that, we would like to take the opportunity to thank leaving members Anders “Tornado” Modd and Richard “Raptor” Holmgren for 12 years of pure metal excellence and wish them both best of luck with their new adventures. Hail Tornado! Hail Raptor! And ALL HAIL CAESAR!”
The band has also revealed more information on their upcoming album, entitled “Feeding the Machine” which will be released on March 13, 2020 via Century Media Records. The album will be mixed by Fredrik Nordström of Studio Fredman. The artwork once again has been painted by legendary artist Thomas Holm (King Diamond, Mercyful Fate) and will be presented soon.
METAL SHOCK FINLAND‘s chief editor, Mohsen “Stargazer” Fayazi, has recently had an interview with Niklas Stålvind which will be published this week.
