Interview: GrimWolf

GrimWolf

I’d first heard about the band GrimWolf by pure coincidence a few years ago. I’d picked up a heavy metal podcast for a little while, as a result of a favorite band of mine being featured on it, and happened to find a GrimWolf song on the very next episode of said podcast. At the time, I’d taken a lengthy hiatus from the werewolf scene in all its various forms and fashions (roughly 4-5 years) and the song, which I believe was “Full Moon Draw,” got my attention again, and I picked back up on my werewolf fanaticism roughly where I’d left off. (And I started following the band’s activity closely.)

Hey—I’m a big fan of werewolves and a big fan of metal, and GrimWolf always delivers.

Nonetheless, as the band has a new EP coming out soon, I got in touch with lead vocalist/guitarist Brent Wisdom to ask him a few questions about how the band got started, about their upcoming release, and about cool werewolves in general.

  1. Van Helsing
  2. Death Anthem

GrimWolf has stated that in the meantime they will still be on the road and moving forward with the EP recording as a three-piece band, but they are looking into opening auditions for a new rhythm guitarist very soon.

Ten Songs to Chew on People to

I am a really big fan of music relating to werewolves. Like, a really really big fan of it. To an embarrassing degree. My iTunes werewolf playlist is over four hours long.

But I digress: to celebrate my birthday today, here is the unofficial Lycanthropology 101 list of songs to chew on people to.

1. The Animal—Disturbed

Loud and aggressive, just as any werewolf song from a metal band should be. The music video is a little bizarre but—what are ya gonna do.

Taking form in the glimmer of this tainted moonlight
Death approaches on this night
For the animal’s soul is mine
We will be completed right before your eyes
I have no control this time
And now, we both shall dine
In hell tonight
