Wolfbrigade (SWE)

The Swedish d-beat steamroller lycanthro punks are ready!

SATURDAY

Wolfbrigade always delivers. A-L-W-A-Y-S!

Formed as Wolfpack in 1995 by members of Anti Cimex (Swedish Hardcore), Obscure Infinity (Death Metal) and Harlequin (Melodic folk punk). The result became a mix of their previous musical efforts, but with a main direction leaning towards hardcore/crust.

Singer Tomas Jonsson was forced to leave the band in 1998 and was replaced by Micke. At around the same time, the band changed their name from Wolfpack to Wolfbrigade to avoid association with a Swedish neo-Nazi prison gang who shared that name. In 2002, drummer Frank left and was replaced by Dadde. The band split up in 2004 because of lack of motivation and Micke needing surgery for vocal cord problems. Four of the members started a new band, Today's Overdose.

On 7 January 2007, Wolfbrigade announced that they were reuniting. Wolfbrigade imported bassist Johan from Today's Overdose and released a comeback album, Prey to the World, in June 2007. In 2008, the group released Comalive. Wolfbrigade went on a one-year hiatus from playing live in 2011, and then regrouped for the release of Damned in 2012.

Wolfbrigade's last album The Enemy: Reality was released Fall 2019 through Southern Lord Records.
