Interview

Wolf Reveals All About "Feeding The Machine"

Traditional heavy metal is a funny thing in today's world. While the likes of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest still sell out venues wherever they go, many of the younger bands who play a similar style are often overlooked in favour of more extreme strains of the genre. Nevertheless, even in the dark days of the nineties, there has always been bands keeping the uniform of denim and leather alive, one of the best examples of which, hails from Örebro, Sweden and this year turns the ripe old age of twenty five. Of course, I could only be talking about Wolf.

After a six year wait following the release of "Devil Seed" and with a new lineup in tow, the Scandinavian steelers are back with what could very well be their most ferocious album to date, "Feeding The Machine," which hits shelves tomorrow (March 13th.) Last night before their opening set for fellow Swedes Grand Magus, I caught up with vocalist Niklas Stålvind and guitarist Simon Johansson to discuss the album, why it took so long to be released, the striking cover art and more. You can watch the interview in full below.

Diamond Oz: The new album, "Feeding The Machine" is out on Friday. There's been quite a long gap since the last album, six years. Why such a long wait?

Niklas Stålvind: A lot of different reasons. For one, it took like three years to write the songs and during that time, we were working full time day jobs so we really couldn't afford to get fired. That's one reason. Also Simon built a great studio, Solna Sound Recording, which is the studio where we recorded and Simon produced, but it was a huge project to build a proper studio. Years actually. He had four days off in a two year period so it was insane and I just kept focusing on the songs and going to the other guys, travelling to their town and rehearsing with them so they would nail the songs. So it was pretty inconvenient to take such a long time but I think the end result will be worth it and now Simon has a really good studio and we have a good producer and a really good band, so as soon as we have new songs, the next album won't take so long.
