Wolfpack Allday Hell on Limited Edition LP
1990s Trilogy of LPs To Be Reissued Individually by Southern Lord in 2016; New Material on the Horizon
Southern Lord will be bringing back the furious early era of Wolfbrigade, the band then known as Wolfpack, in a trilogy of reissues in April 2016. The reissue series will encompass the savage Swedish act's first three LPs - A New Dawn Fades (1996), Lycanthro Punk (1998) and Allday Hell (1999) - all remastered by Brad Boatright and pressed on limited edition vinyl.
Wolfbrigade was one of the main factors in the renaissance of d-beat driven hardcore punk that ruled the world in the late-90s and early-2000s, with a legion of bands and labels forming a globally recognized network of crushing momentum, siren-like leads and earnest anger sourced from political dissatisfaction and the need to build from the ground up a DIY system.
Wolfbrigade's music stood at the forefront, in no small part down to their instantly identifiable brand of destructive riffing, riddled with chaos and ire, and with a fatally catchy tendency to structure tracks in a manner that kept the listener captive, slammed between a constant buffeting of high-speed verses and snappy choruses. Add to that their bare-bones intensity, underwritten by the storming d-beat drumming.
The first three albums cemented their direct blasting approach and remain longstanding favorites, before their transformation at the turn of the millennium brought in darker tones and alternate directions. In 2016, Southern Lord will be running with the Wolkpack to return these albums to print. Additionally, the present incarnation of the band, Wolfbrigade, will be once again teaming up with Southern Lord to bring to the masses their next full-length offering.
