Few names invoke as much majesty in the world of melodic death metal than Swedish …
Since the release of their latest single Black Mamba, the buzz around Melbourne’s Alpha Wolf has continued to grow at an exponential rate.
From touring the country with Thy Art Is Murder, to most recently being announced as part of the line up for Impericon Festival Oberhausen, as well as being represented by Avocado Bookings in the UK & Europe, the band is showing no signs of slowing, today they back up that buzz with the release of their most relentless single yet, No Name.
“Lyrically, No Name is about losing yourself to the point you become unrecognisable to both yourself and to others.” discloses guitarist Sabian Lynch, “Where all of your emotions are nullified and you feel painfully outcast; finding yourself in a deep dark hole and believing that shutting out everything and everyone around you is your only option.” The resentful lyrics accompany what the band believe to be some of their heaviest riffs and breakdowns yet, further defining a sound unique to Alpha Wolf.
To celebrate the end of another huge year for the band, next week Alpha Wolf hit the Australian roads with Greyscale Records label mates Justice For The Damned, an experience that guitarist Scott Simpson knows will be something special. “Back in 2015 we got to tour with Justice For The Damned, and they have became dear friends of ours ever since. From playing tiny rooms to 10 people across the country, to where we are now, we’ve done it all side by side as brothers. So to finally be able to jump back on the road together, suffice to say it has been a long time coming, and as we both wrap up our debut album cycles, theres no better time than now.”
In 2018, Alpha Wolf have shown Australia exactly why they have earned their place on Australian stages; in 2019, Alpha Wolf will show the world.
