Wolfbrigade - Biography





Formed as Wolfpack in 1995 by members of Anti Cimex (Swedish Hardcore), Obscure Infinity (Death Metal) and Harlequin (Melodic folk punk). The result became a mix of their previous musical efforts, but with a main direction leaning towards hardcore/crust.

This lineup released 2 albums and a bunch of EPs until a new singer was found in 1999 and another album was done. After this the band decided to change their name to Wolfbrigade and have since then gone through 2 more line up changes, briefly been in hiatus between 2004-2006 (but the current line up played under the name "Today's Overdose" during those years) and released another 3 albums, some EPs, and played live around Europe and the USA.

In December 2008 the album Comalive was released, an album which saw the band return to their roots while still not straying too far from the slightly more melodic sound of later years. To promote the album they did some massive (for Wolfbrigade's standard) touring, which also took the band to play the two biggest gigs in their career, Obscene Extreme in Czech and Maryland Deathfest in Baltimore, USA. During 2011 the band have decided to take a break from playing live gigs and locked themselves in their new home studio the "Wolf's Den" and wrote a new album, Damned - which will be released on new partners Southern Lord Recordings and old friends La Famila Releases. This was recorded with old friend and producer Fredrik Nordström at Studio Fredman, the first one since the legendary Lycanthro Punk back in 1998. The pack is indeed still hungry and Damned is their strongest record yet, filled with steamroller hardcore riffs, haunting melodies, powerful d-beat and Micke's howling roars. These guys put their whole hearts into this release.

Damned - forever red, forever black.
