FIREWÖLFE – Debutalbum Reissue

FireWölfe are unquestionably retro – but of the finer variety. Their riff monsters, refined with pithy vocals and brilliant licks and leads, breathe powerful U.S. metal vibes that should appeal to friends of legends such as Savatage or Riot as well as lovers of Heir Apparent or Fifth Angel.

The self-titled debut album, self-released by the band in 2011 and licensed to Japan, is now being released as a reissue via Limb Music.

The re-release is upgraded by a complete remastering and the brand new cover artwork by Dusan Markovic. In addition, there are two new bonus tracks recorded by the current line-up.
Guest vocalists Jonathan K. from Q5 and Bobby „Leatherlungs“ Lucas (Attacker, Overlorde, Seven Witches, Exhibition) grace these additional recordings with their well-oiled throats. The new songs originate from the original writing sessions of the two band founders Paul Kleff and Nick Layton.
Gems like „Feel The Thunder“, „Air Attack“, „Unholy“, „Back From Hell“ or the vibrating instrumental „Ice Wizard“ remain strong testimonies of a wonderfully harmonious formation that does not miss any edges.

– Remastered reissue of the debut album from 2011
– Remastered by Bart Gabriel (Crystal Viper, Cirith Ungol, Savage Grace, Q5)
– Exclusive CD only bonus tracks featuring the guest singers Jonathan K. (Q5) and Bobby „Leatherlungs“ Lucas (Attacker, Overlorde, Seven Witches, Exhibition)
– Brand new cover artwork by Dusan Markovic (Jag Panzer, Sorcerer, Death Dealer, The Sound Of Thunder, Symphonity, Dragony)

FireWölfe – visualizer for „Unholy“ out now!

FireWölfe release visualizer video for „Unholy“ today. A catchy track from their upcoming remastered debut album reissue, out on July 1st in Europe and on August 5th in North America.

Guitarist and songwriter Nick Layton says:
“If I remember correctly UNHOLY was one of the last songs we wrote but we instantly knew we had something special with this song.
I was sitting with my guitar and experimenting with an open string idea in the key of G minor. I wanted to use the open G as a pedal to play a melody off of. That became the intro to the song and one of the song’s big hooks.
Dave’s lyrics tell the story of a love/hate relationship with a woman. It’s the old tale about someone we know know is bad for us but we can’t seem to break away from. I think the chorus is one of our all time best – melodic and heavy!
Paul Kleff and I had a blast trading guitar licks on the outro of the song. Overall UNHOLY is probably my favorite FireWölfe track. We’ve heard from many of our fans over the years and this ranks at the top of nearly everyone’s list.”

FireWölfe releases new single & video!

FireWölfe is excited to release their 2nd single and video entitled „Pedal To Metal“ from their upcoming album „Conquer All Fear“ (out on Nov. 19th).

Singer Freddy Krumins describes „Pedal To Metal“ as an „adrenaline charged, attitude filled romp that needs no further explanation. Just plenty of volume and visualization of the open road.“

Musically the aggressive guitar riffing brings to mind uptempo good time Rock’n’Roll like classic Van Halen, while the vocals, bass and drums are full throttle throughout. The only slight break in the action is after the ripping guitar solos during a half time manic breakdown that sounds like Freddy K. is losing his mind!

Indeed, „Pedal To Metal“ has a simple message of putting your foot on the gas and getting where you want to go in life—so start your engines and get ready for a wild ride!

As the lyric says „never low on fuel, that’s the only rule!“

FIREWÖLFE – Conquer All Fear

In 2020 founding member/guitarist Nick Layton and bassist Bobby Ferkovich (Pamela Moore Band, Metal Church, Heir Apparent, Presto Ballet) sought to put a new powerful version of FIREWÖLFE together after singer David Fefolt left the band. By recruiting Seattle based guitar shredder Michael David (TKO), virtuoso drummer Marco Bicca (Pamela Moore Band, The Element, A Dying Planet) and Las Vegas based vocalist Freddy Krumins (James Byrd’s Atlantis Rising), the band was finally set.

„Conquer All Fear“ is a powerful, mighty heavy metal album with a high melodic density. Produced and mastered by Bart Gabriel (Crystal Viper, Jack Starr, Hexx among others) and mixed by Cederick Forsberg (Crystal Viper, Marta Gabriel, Rocka Rollas, Blazon Stone among others), the album comes across as a tour de force of US Metal. Heavy riffs, melodic choruses, a thundering rhythm unit, excellent double guitar attacks and finely structured solos characterize the tracks. With Freddy Krumins‘ voice, the new tracks seem elegantly rougher and take the new material to a new level. The core piece of the album is the „The Evil Eye Trilogy“. Versatility and heaviness go hand in hand. An album that blasts out of the speakers straight into your brain!

Cover artwork by Dusan Markovic (Dragony, Symphonity, Jag Panzer, Death Dealer).
