Wolf Post Cover of Mercyful Fate Classic Online

Swedish metallers WOLF have issued the following update:

"As many of you know, and many of you DON'T know, WOLF did a cover of MERCYFUL FATE's 'A Dangerous Meeting' on the 2002 release 'Black Wings'. We thought we'd share that with those off you that missed out, so we 'gave' the song to the WOLF UK MySpace site. We're fans of metal, good metal that is, and there's no doubt about the impact MERCYFUL FATE have had on WOLF, so we did a cover of 'em to show our appreciation. Getting the (devilish) blessing from several MERCYFUL FATE members for that version made us believe in metal even more!"

Check out the song at their Myspace page.

Wolf Begin Writing New Material

Swedish thrashers WOLF have issued the following update:

"Writing for the new album is well on the way and we’re wrapping up the final things for a summer recording. We’ll give you more details as things move along.

On February 22-24, we’ll be recording a cover tune in Toyas Studio Seven Sweden/Örebro for a special release by Century Media records and the song we’ve taken on might not be the most obvious choice for a workingclass heavy metal band like Wolf, but rest assured, we're very excited and very proud to get a chance to record this song. Which one it is – we cannot reveal at the time, but we will do so soon.

As many off you’ve seen when watching us onstage lately is that Tobias “Hammershark” Kellgren is not with us anymore. It was a mutual decision taken way back in august that Hammershark was to leave due to lack of time to tour and personal issues, and we can’t let that hold us back. But as you might have noticed, we haven’t exactly been sitting around doing nothing. Nop, we’ve borrowed IN SOLITUDE drummer Uno “Piranha” Bruniosson as live/session drummer for shows and upcoming February recording. We will wait with announcing a permanent drummer so we’re not making any speedy decisions to jeopardize Wolf's or Uno’s future carriers. We’re hard at work, harder than ever, and we goddamn love it! The wolf is loose and was last seen heading your way."

Wolf Post 2007 Wrap Up

Sweden's WOLF have issued the following 2007 year-end update:

"Where's the power gone? Thanx 2007!

We wanna thank each and every one of you that picked up our album, came to the shows, got yourself a t-shirt, said 'hi' and gave us beer, hanged out, played with us or simply just supported heavy metal for a great 2007. We WILL make some noise in 2008, be sure of that!

Here's the list to sum it all up:

Best on stage move: Anders Tornado's striptease at Bloodstock Festival (thank God (?) for YouTube)

Most stupid: Johannes Axeman when talking to Vinnie Appice and taking pictures with him at Bang Your Head Fest and not remembering any of it… Damn that free beer…

Most crazy stories told: Breakfast with GRIM REAPER at the hotel… Funny 'shit'.

Worst catering: Two bags of crisps and a bottle of water…for 2 bands somewhere in the UK.

Best onstage comment: Niklas Viper going, 'Someone told us that we're too metal for our own good. We say, you can NEVER be too metal for your own good!'

2nd runner up: Johannes Axeman at Bloodstock said, 'Where's the power gone? Hell, we don't need power, we're a HEAVY metal band.'

3rd runner up: Tobias Hammershark said, 'It's a lose/lose situation.'

The 'what the hell' moment: Spotting the HUGE signing queue at Bloodstock Fest. Good fun. Thanx to all of you.

Most prepared: All of us on the tour bus watching Braveheart before the gigs in Scotland.

Most rocking moment: The show at Sweden Rock Fest - 60 minutes of New Wave of Swedish / British Heavy Metal…in Sweden…

Tallest: Jensen of THE HAUNTED.

Longest wait: 9 hours at Heathrow to catch the flight home after The Cursed Earth tour.

Funniest: Setting our bass player's arse on fire at Bang Your Head Fest.

Coolest chicks: GIRLSCHOOL. Hell, they rock!

Worst moment: Having to cancel Hard Rock Hell Fest after putting down hours of work to make it happen. Damn canceling!

Coolest fan: Joxxe."

Wolf Part Ways With Bassist

Swedish metallers WOLF have announced the departure of bassist Mikael Goding. His final appearance with the band will take place at the Headbangers Open Air festival, set to take place July 12-14 in Brande-Hörnerkirchen, Germany.

Commented Mikael: "To put it simple: too much business and mini-van, and [too little] music. The reason we started the band was that we wanted to create great new wave of British heavy metal. And we certainly have! The thing that I always have enjoyed most with WOLF is to see a song grow during rehearsals. Thinking: man! This is a really good song, and we have done it together. Now with Tobias [Kellgren; drums] and Johannes [Losbäck; guitar] living on the west coast, we hardly rehearse at all and that sucks! Unfortunately, releasing an album isn't just about music, there is a lot of business involved, and I hate that shit! Playing a gig is a lot more than the gig, and I hate that shit to! Last gig (Bang Your Head!!!) we played 40 minutes and we were away for 50 hours, and we didn't get any money at all. The worst part with leaving WOLF is how much I'll miss the fans. Even if there aren't legions of them, there is still some who are really dedicated. Like Joxe, who comes to almost every show we play in Europe. So thank you all who have bought the record and all who have been at gigs for the past '12 wasted years.'"

WOLF's performance at the Sweden Rock Festival in Sölvesborg, Sweden on June 6, 2007 was recorded by the Swedish national radio show "P3 Rock" and will be broadcast later in the year.

WOLF's latest album, "The Black Flame", was recorded at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden. The follow-up to 2004's "Evil Star" is the first album to feature new drummer Tobias R Kellgren and longtime session/live guitarist Johannes Losbäck alongside founding members Niklas Stålvind (vocals, lead guitar) and Mikael Goding. A video for the song "I Will Kill Again" has been posted onliine at YouTube.com.
