WOLFHEART has unveiled a perfect example of their raw live energy in a form of a live recording from the 2023 Summerbreeze.

Spring and summer 2023 has taken the nordic pact through North-America and European festival madness and the grand finale of this victorious run was the mighty Summerbreeze. To continue the tradition of releasing videos from SB performance (Aeon of Cold, Boneyard) the northern warriors are thrilled to present highest professional level live of the song “The Hammer” right before the beginning of the first headliner tour in Europe.

“”Summerbreeze was again the grand finale of the summer and Arte concert did an amazing job capturing the show. We are thrilled to be able to present the 100% live version of “The Hammer” in the verge of the absolute highlight of the whole year: Our headliner tour in Europe/UK. Finally able to play full set for our fans all around Europe with the glorious company of Before The Dawn and Hinayana”” says Tuomas Saukkonen. 

Finnish frontrunners WOLFHEART have proven themselves to be one of metal’s most captivating acts of northern heritage and one of the fastest rising bands in the international melodic death metal scene. Over the course of the last three years alone, the band has remained relentless with the release of their highly acclaimed full-length, Wolves of Karelia (2020) and Skull Soldiers EP (2021), gaining massive praise from fans and press alike with their icy tales of battle and triumph. The new album, King Of The North (out September 16, 2022 via Napalm Records), picked up right where WOLFHEART left off – taking every aspect of their trademark sound of colossal melodies, growling vocals and driving drum rhythms to searing new levels. Each song on King Of The North was dedicated to a different story of Finnish mythology – underlined by WOLFHEART’s grand, crushing songwriting and production. “Ancestor”, featuring none other than Jesse Leach of Killswitch Engage fame, is the album’s top frostbitten anthem, unleashing WOLFHEART’s most crushing blast beats and cutting-edge vocal performances. “The King” marches on, telling the tale of the forest god with horns and pianos accompanying heavy guitar riffs and solos, before raising the energy levels once more on the relentless “Cold Flame” featuring Karl Sanders of legendary extreme metal group Nile. King Of The North is a true masterpiece of melodic death metal, crafted with loads of attention to detail and intricate mythologydriven storytelling – showcasing WOLFHEART at never before heard artistic levels!
