Unchain the wolves! Napalm Records is proud to announce the signing of forceful Austrian unit ROADWOLF. The all-powerful four-piece stands for authentic heavy metal in the style of the legendary 80s and bands like Iron Maiden or UFO.
Hailing out of Austria ROADWOLF have already been around for a while, gifting their devotees with thrilling live sets and ensuring a loyal fanbase. The energetic outfit played at the world’s most famous metal festival in Wacken as well as support shows with Enforcer, Skull Fist, Bullet, Lizzy Borden, Vicious Rumors and Night Demon – just to name a few. Their uncompromising debut album Unchain the Wolf (2020) awakens the spirit of early Judas Priest spliced with influences of bands like Saxon, UFO, Dio and Ozzy, that are flashing through the typical ROADWOLF-sound creeping directly into the listeners head. The band easily handles the balancing act between celebrating their roots and still creating their very own fresh sound. The result are songs that Halford & Co would be proud of in this new decade!
ROADWOLF comment: We are really looking forward to this cooperation and we are extremely pleased to join forces with mighty Napalm Records! This totally feels like the right move at the right time to take the story of ROADWOLF to the next level. Be assured the new material will shake you up and hit the world with the full strength of an Austrian double punch!
