The WARWOLF rises from the deepest abysses of hell to retaliate for the neglect of broken humankind. He is tormentor and redeemer at the same time, created by the forces of earthly nature, as well as the evil forces of hellish rulers. When life has lost all radiance, the dark high priests provide the perfect weapon for the creation of the city of the dead. Welcome to NECROPOLIS! The band from Cologne is by no means an unknown quantity on the scene. The band arose from the veteran members of well and long known WOLFEN, who were an essential part of the scene for many years with hundreds of concerts and several tours. WARWOLF concentrates on the foundations of Heavy Metal and present themselves in the finest NWOBHM manner. The musicians’ preferences for IRON MAIDEN are definitely not hidden away. On the contrary – this band expresses and lives their own musical roots and with this motivation they are paying their tribute to 80s Metal to a certain extent. The musical focus is a conscious step back, a journey back in time to the early decades of heavy music. The attention does not focus on innovation and progress but is fed only by the love for classic Heavy Metal! This enthusiasm is shared by Chris Boltendahl, lead singer of the German Metal institution GRAVE DIGGER. The relationship with Chris is a long term one, since WARWOLF singer Andreas is responsible for a lot of backing vocals on some of the latest GRAVE DIGGER albums.
In the end it took a few years for the idea to mature and the timing to be right. Chris is now in charge as the producer and with this team there are no stylistic doubts left anymore. In 2022 the German metal masters joined forces with Metalapolis Records to release NECROPOLIS. The album continues the NWOBHM legacy where IRON MAIDEN stopped in 1985, spiced with WARWOLF DNA. Blasting drums, screaming guitars, pumping bass and over the top, world-class vocals make this WARWOLF a real wild one!
