Wolf reveal cover artwork and track listing of their new album

Do you miss the feeling you had when you first heard “Number Of The Beast” or “British Steel”? The moment when you jumped on your bed and shredded your air guitar like a maniac? When you took your pen out of your school bag and drew your favourite band’s logo on your jeans jacket? When you stood in front of the mirror and banged your head until you tumbled down?

Welcome to “Legions Of Bastards”, Wolf’s 6th album. The follow-up to 2009’s Swedish Grammy nominated album “Ravenous” was produced by Pelle Saether at Studio Underground in Vasterås, Sweden. Is there anything new to expect on “Legions Of Bastards”? Yes, new great songs. Anything else? Well, not really, but do you want Motörhead to change their style? Fuck, no! So this is still Wolf as we love it, the band didn’t even change their cover artist. It’s still Thomas Holm, the man who did the legendary Mercyful Fate “Melissa” and “Don’t Break The Oath” covers.

Wolf: “Legions of Bastards is the fruit of lots of hard work, sweat and blood. Our music has always come from the heart, but this one seems to us even more honest and straight forward than any other album we’ve made. We’re not afraid to say that this is a GREAT album. If you love it, like we do, raise the horns and bang your head! If you don’t – we don’t care. We’d still be banging our heads!”

“Legions Of Bastards” will be released through Century Media Records in the UK on: Monday, April 25, 2011.
