Finnish metallers WOLFSHEAD have unleashed their new album “Leaden”, out now in North America via Rockshots and was earlier released in Europe one October 27th. WOLFHEAD’s style is pure old school heavy metal, heavy guitar riffs, growling bass, pounding drums with bluesy, leather-lunged whisky-scented vocals on top. Taking their main influences from such acts as Black Sabbath, Motörhead, Venom and the whole NWOBHM movement, WOLFSHEAD manages to combine almost everything from heavy rock music from between 1967 and 1985 to their own unique blend of doom metal. They write songs about lycanthropy, the living dead, witch hunts, Cthulhu Mythos and of course, heavy metal itself.

Wolfshead was formed in 2011 during a Pentagram concert in Helsinki, Finland when old buddies Vesa Karppinen (bassist from Fall of the Idols) and Ari Rajaniemi (guitarist from Torture Pulse & Deep River Acolytes)were compelled by the power of the riff compelled. A few months later they gathered to a rehearsal room with a mutual friend, drummer Jussi Risto and in moments it was destined the trio would form Wolfshead with vocalist Tero Laine joining the line up soon after. In summer 2012, Wolfshead released their first demo and begun playing gigs.By 2014, the band released their second demo MMXIV, which was then followed by their 2015 EP “Caput Lupinum”. Now in 2017, the band is unleashing their debut album “Leaden” via Rockshots Records.
