||Xtreem Music is more than proud to announce the signing of one of the most well hidden treasures in the finnish Death Metal scene. This band is no other than Winterwolf, whose one of their interesting point is the feature on their ranks of Demilich's mastermind Antti Boman on both guitar/vocals.
Winterwolf started back in 1997 and was active until 2001 when the band changed its name into Deathchain after recording 2 demos. However, in 2006, original band members decided to bring back to life Winterwolf and during 2009 the band decided to record their debut full length album "Cycle of the Werewolf" which came to the ears of Xtreem Music, during its recording process, who immediately offered the band a deal for its release.
"Cycles of the Werewolf", by band's decision, will be initially release on 12"LP vinyl format on a limited edition of 500 copies in early October 2009 and will be followed by CD version some months after, maybe December 2009 or maybe January 2010.
This album is an absolutely masterpiece of pure scandivanian Death Metal, strongly rooted in the early swedish scene of bands like Entombed, Carnage and Dismember although with a different feel by the addition of influences from bands like Bolt Thrower, Demilich, Obituary, Celtic Frost... which surely adds a killer feel to this album that will for sure crush all these "we-are-true-old-school-boys" which constantly fail in their imitations of the true sound and feeling of the early scandinavian Death Metal. Winterwolf will blow your ears with perhaps the most fresh, heavy, intense and "perfect" album since Entombed's "Left Hand Path".
You can listen to three tracks from Winterwolf's imminent debut album on the band's official MySpace.
