The release date of the of the new album „Rise Of The Lycans“ by the German Power/Thrash Metal Band Wolfen on CD is June 22nd, 2018. The pre-order phase will start on June 8th, 2018 in our webshop.
Even in 2018 you can count on the German metal-institution Wolfen! And they've got great news!
The line-up is finally complete again. After both drummer Holger Bloempott and long-time guitarist Björn Grüne left the band for private and family reasons, new band member is now former interim drummer Siegfried Grütz, who's already been causing sensation with Brainfever back in the '80s. The band had another lucky shot with their new second guitarist.
They were able to get Andreas Doetsch to join them, widely known with his solo project as „Andi the wicked“ and from his work in bands like Steelpreacher.
After their „Evilution“ tour in 2014-2016 with more than 50 concerts (including an Europe tour with Grave Digger), it got a little more quiet around the band. Only a few selected gigs were played, due to the training of the new band members. With the new line-up the band's showing themselves in their most mature form, as they prove on their latest album „Rise Of The Lycans“.
This is the sixth album in the band's career and contains all typical Wolfen trademarks and much more. It is way more powerful than it's predecessors, making it an actual Melodic Power metal album with Thrash influences. Furthermore, an utopian concept story stretching over four songs was composed. All songs are full of the characteristic vocals, a very powerful rhythm section and some extraordinary guitar-work, which has always played a huge role in the band's sound. After the quintet gained new uplift through their „comeback album“„Chapter IV“ and its successor „Evilution“, also thanks to the terrific feedback from the online press, continuation seemed to be the only right and logical step! The outcome can be seen as the peak of the band's current creative period and encapsulates all of their facets.
Everything's rounded up with a killer production by Martin Buchwalter from the Gernhart Studios! Even if it may sound worn out: The band sounds as good as never before!!!
