Listen to the new Wolfbrigade album, ‘Run With The Hunted’

By Glen Bushell

For more than 20 years, Wolfbrigade have been a dominant force of brutality. Originally starting life as Wolfpack in 1995, the Swedish powerhouse pull no punches with their vitriolic blend of hardcore, d-beat, and crust, which continues on their ninth album, ‘Run With The Hunted’, which we are bringing you the UK exclusive of today.

“We looked to explore our rawness, writing straight-up, in-your-face, primitive songs,” say the band of the album. “On this record, we decided to push the melodic strains even further, but without losing either intensity or brutality. Lyrically we have been inspired by both classic and obscure dystopian literature, finding suitably horrible metaphors for the decline of western society. The search for freedom continues, but this time the path is pointed inwards, into ourselves.”

‘Run With The Hunted’ is released on April 28 via Southern Lord, and is available to pre-order now.
