Wolfheart Share Music Video For New Song “Ancestor” Featuring Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach

Wolfheart have premiered a new video for their new song “Ancestor.” This track features Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach and it will appear on the band’s new album “King Of The North,” which is set to be released on September 16.

Tuomas Saukkonen said the following about the song:

“Finnish mythology is full of Nordic gods, tales and beliefs, but there is only one king of the forest. And because of that, a song about this feared and honored beast is an ideal first single. Musically diverse from blast beats to majestic chorus with legendary Jesse Leach, bringing the song onto a whole new level and lyrically diving deep into the album’s theme.”

He also added the following about the album:

“After ‘Wolves of Karelia’ it made a lot of sense to continue writing thematic albums, but this time I wanted to travel a lot further in history than 2nd world war and went straight to the tales about creation of nordic world, ancient gods of north and the majestic nature. The colorful theme also inspired me to write the musically most diverse Wolfheart album and also bring the biggest variation of vocals than ever before, putting Lauri and Vageliss in their well-earned spotlight.”

Wolfheart Share Band Playthrough Video For New Song “Hereditary”

Wolfheart have shared a band playthrough of their new song “Hereditary.” This track is from the band’s new EP “Skull Soldiers,” which will be released on March 5. Tuomas Saukkonen commented:

“Musically, ‘Hereditary’ is a clear contrast to our previous single ‘Skull Soldiers’, which was our most death metal oriented song ever written. It’s a melodic and almost heroically forward driven song that still carries the dark theme of the war with the timeless fact: When pushed far enough, everybody becomes a killer, and that wrath is buried in each one of us.”

Wolfheart Premiere “Reaper” Live Video

Wolfheart have premiered a new live video for their song “Reaper.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Wolves Of Karelia.” Tuomas Saukkonen commented:

“Footage for the video is taken from our exclusive virtual gig with few added camera angles. It was a very different experience and made us miss our fans in the flesh more than ever. Counting the days until we get back on the road, but in the meantime, the true meaning of the song fits well for this moment as well, as the whole world is battling against the virus.”

Wolfheart Premiere “The Hammer” Video

Wolfheart have premiered a new video for their new song “The Hammer.” This track is from the band’s new album “Wolves Of Karelia,” which will be released on April 10.

Tuomas Saukkonen commented:

“‘The Hammer’ is the best song to describe the Finnish perseverance and willpower. ‘Never surrender, Never retreat, The last defender, The hammer of the north.’ Those lines really underline the fact that no matter what the conditions were, the enemy had to be stopped. Nature was the anvil and you had to become a hammer, and between those two, no invading army could survive.

With the video we wanted to reflect the brotherhood in the band and the crew in contrast to the wrath of the lyrics.”

Wolfheart Premiere “Hail Of Steel” Video

Wolfheart have premiered a new video for their new song “Hail Of Steel.” This track is from the band’s new album “Wolves Of Karelia,” which will be released on April 10. Tuomas Saukkonen commented:

“‘Hail Of Steel’ is an embodiment of the fierce chaos of war. The Finnish army had 32 tanks against 3000 Russian tanks, 114 planes against 3800 Russian planes, three times bigger troops, etc., so those Fins really saw steel and fire raining from the sky.”
