Wolvhammer Enters The Studio

Directly following a North American trek with Shining and Revenge, Wolvhammer has entered New Constellation Studio in Orlando, Florida and is currently immersed in the recording of the band's fourth LP, which will be released later this year.

Issues Wolvhammer's Adam Clemans from the studio, "We just finished a three-week tour across the country with Revenge and Shining. Sharing the stage with those bands was a very visceral and enjoyable experience for us. We have all been supportive of both bands for some time, so we were very pleased to be able to join forces with them for a tour.

"Currently we are in Orlando, Florida recording our fourth LP with Jarrett Pritchard at New Constellation Studio and we couldn't be more stoked. Jarrett is a talented guy who understands our sound and our vision and I truly and firmly believe that this record will be our strongest and most venomous yet. Without giving away too much, the new record has a bit of a throwback vibe to the more punk based sound and roots that originally birthed the band. But we are still expanding our sound and influences simultaneously as we are all very much into goth and deathrock bands." More...

Wolvhammer Enters The Studio

Midwestern black/death act Wolvhammer is currently deep in the process of laying down the tracks that are to become the band's third LP.

Occupying Hideaway Studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Wolvhammer is currently tracking the follow-up to Profound Lore debut, "The Obsidian Plains," with Dan Jensen at the soundboard.

Stated guitarist Jeff Wilson today on the recording process, "Just waking up on what is day five of recording for LP #3... fortunately for myself not hungover today. We finished up all of the drums/auxiliary percussion last night, which means we'll be knocking out guitars and bass for the next three days or so. Wrapping it up on Wednesday and shipping it off to be mastered. This one is definitely going to come out of left field for some of those familiar with our other material. Be forewarned."

In addition to Wilson, Wolvhammer is comprised of drummer Heath Rave (ex-Across Tundras), bassist Joe Noel (ex-Samothrace, ex-Altar of Plagues, live) vocalist Adam Clemans (Shaidar Logoth) and guitarist Brendan Seven.

Upon its completion, details on the new album's official Summer release date and more will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
