Greece's true heavy metal outfirt WOLFCRY returns with a new album! 8 tracks of traditional, old school inspired heavy metal with just a little bit of Thrash influences to satisfy fans of both genres!
* Bio (from label):
The Heavy / Power metal band WOLFCRY was formed in September 1992 By Andreas ‚úThe Wizard‚Ě immediately after the split-up of the band VANGUARD! In November 1992 the band entered the MOLON LAVE studio to record the track ‚úAngelsign‚Ě for a Greek metal compilation which unfortunately was never released. As session musicians, the band used Vassilison guitars and John (ex-DARK NOVA, now RUST) on vocals.
Due to several personal problems and line-up changes the band went through an unproductive period, of almost 4 years!
In August 1996, Andreas ‚úThe Wizard‚Ě decided to renew and reform the band, using one more time session musicians: John ‚ďguitars/keyboards, Spiros-bass (OBSECRATION) and John-vocals (AIRGHED LAMH), to record the debut demo of WOLFCRY entitled ‚úThe Ivory Tower‚Ě. Their music in that days was following slower and more epic paths, paying attention more to heaviness rather than melody and speed.
Their participation in the compilation CD of the major metal Greek magazine METAL INVADER, increased the popularity of the band resulting in the participation of the band in the Greek metal compilation cd ‚úPandora‚ôs metal box‚Ě with two tracks from their debut demo, in 1998.
One year later they entered the studio to record the ‚úPromo tape 1999‚Ě with a new line-up and determined to shake the Heavy Metal scene! Their music had already started to turn more into a Power Metal machine on speed and melody although they maintained their genuine Heavy Metal spirit! A remarkable addition to the band was the excellent singer Costas Hatzigeorgiou (ex-SENTINEL)After a couple of years of intense rehearsing and song writing they recorded their first album , entitled ‚úPower within‚Ě. The album was supposed to be released from the German label Iron Glory but the band departed after mutual agreement with the label. So they returned to their homeland, Greece, and signed with [now-defunct label] BLACK LOTUS RECORDS. ‚úPower within‚Ě is an amalgam of force, melody, speed, nostalgia and real heavy metal feeling! The harshness of traditional heavy metal combined with the fire and harmony of contemporary German power metal! A really promising debut from the Wolf‚ôs lair...
Their new album, 'Nightbreed' has been released in 2003.
