NEW SCHOOL SWEDES WITH OLD SCHOOL METAL “SKULL CRUSHER”
“Skull Crusher”, the new video from Swedish metallers WOLF, can be seen below. The clip was helmed by Morningstar Film Production, which previously worked on the band’s video for the song “Hail Caesar” from WOLF‘s “Ravenous” album.
Commented WOLF vocalist/guitarist Niklas Stålvind: “We have never had so much fun making a video as we had on this one. Smashing a car into smithereens is something we always wanted to do without cleaning up after us or get in trouble with the police. It was the best exercise/therapy you could ever wish for. I felt like I was 10 kilos lighter in both body and spirit afterwards. We had to work hard to demolish it good. A Volvo is made in Sweden and hard to tear apart — just like this heavy metal band. This one is for all the skull-crushing metal heads out there — we salute you!”
WOLF recently parted ways with guitarist Johannes “Axeman” Losbäck and replaced him with Simon Johansson
(ABSTRAKT ALGEBRA, BIBLEBLACK, MEMORY GARDEN). Simon previously played with WOLF in 2009 when they supported W.A.S.P. for four shows.
A short introduction to Simon can be seen in the WOLF Bloodstock festival trailer below.
WOLF‘s sixth album, “Legions Of Bastards”, was released in April via Century Media Records. The follow-up to 009’s “Ravenous” was produced by Pelle Saether at Studio Underground in Vasterås, Sweden. The cover artwork was once again created by Thomas Holm (the man who was responsible for the legendary MERCYFUL FATE “Melissa” and “Don’t Break The Oath” covers).
