Only 500 copies will be available through Blackcave mailorder, and the limited edition will be signed and numbered by the band. No release date is set at the moment, but it will be announced shortly. "There was never a doubt about releasing The Black Flame as a vinyl record, though we've been getting a lot of questions regarding the matter, we just wanted to wait for the right time to do it and we feel that we've reached that point now," the band said. "Vinyl records are very important for us and our fans and it is an important element of the heavy metal community. It's just like denim & leather - we're naked without it."

Swedish metallers Wolf have announced an October 3rd North American release date for their fourth album, "The Black Flame", to be released through Prosthetic Records. Artwork for the up-coming effort has been posted here. The band is also preparing the first video clip from the new album, to be done for the opening song, "I Will Kill Again". Wolf had this to say on the subject;
Hi, all. We're at the house (haunted of course) in the town off Umeå in Sweden recording the video for the song I Will Kill Again from the upcoming album. Director Owe R Kill Lingwall (Nocturnal Rites) is doing his very best to make us look evil (that means he's doing nothing, cause we're already evil). Tormentor [bassist Mikael Goding] is happy cause Westham kicked Charltons arse. Axeman [guitarist Johannes Losbäck] is happy cause he likes metal. Hammershark [drummer Tobias Kellgren] is happy cause he's getting paid tomorrow and Viper [vocalist/guitarist Niklas Stållvind] is not happy cause he's being tortured by the Killer. And yes...Celtic Frost rules.
The tracklist for "The Black Flame" looks like this:
01 - I Will Kill Again
02 - At The Graveyard
03 - Black Magic
04 - The Bite
05 - Make Friends With Your Nightmares
06 - Demon
07 - The Dead
08 - Seize The Night
09 - Steelwinged Savage Reaper
10 - Children Of The Black Flame

With regards to the new album's musical direction, the band said, "Think old-school metal without beeing old-fashioned. It's heavy as hell and will hit you like a ton off bricks. It has a horror vibe to it that won't let you be, and it could be a soundtrack to old Eighties horror movies. Oh yes, it contains alot off heavy metal too...A LOT!" More...

We are very proud that we will put out the next Wolf album through Century Media. We are completely sure that we will get the support, which we need. In addition, we are convinced that the next Wolf album will tear you a new asshole."

The rehersal room of the Swedish heavy metal band Wolf has been burglarized, two guitars have been stolen. The following message have been posted at the official Wolf website:
Some fucko (must be a Limahl-fan) has broken in to our rehearsal and stolen BOTH of Nicks flying V's, plus two cordless systems and some stereo equipment.
One of the guitars is a one of a kind custom built V-model for Nick, Black with flames, one zebra-coloured DiMarzio-mike and a zebra mighty mike by the neck; it's the same shape as a Epiphone Flying V. It was stowed in a black hard case.The other is a Gibson Flying V 67, Cherry, with two DiMarzio Super Distortion mikes. The guitar was stowed in the original case.
See a pic of both guitars in action here.
Tips that lead to the recovery of one or both of these guitars will be rewarded with eternal heavy metal love from Wolf plus the usual finders fee.
In the unlikely event that it is Black Oak Arkansas that has stolen our gear, we might forget about the incident and just advise them to use a local music store for any future thefts. Thank you.
