Wolves Of War is the name that was chosen by KRIGULV for the musical continuation of Vitam Eternam (circa 1994), but with a different overall concept. KRIGULV, a.k.a. John Prosser (previously a.k.a. Ashlar), wrote all of the music for Vitam Eternam and was also in various other bands in the not so distant past. The name Wolves Of War was officially/publicly used starting in 2006 when the first full line up was temporarily established, yet it would be appropriate to apply it to all of the music that KRIGULV has composed/recorded himself since approximately 1998 following the unofficial ending of Vitam Eternam. He eventually recorded a few instrumental tracks to use as a preliminary demo/promo and to facilitate the search for a full line up. As previously alluded to, no permanent full line up has yet been established.
The aural art of Wolves Of War is firmly based in the roots of Vitam Eternam, but is both progressive and regressive when compared to its varied influences. It is progressive in certain obvious characteristics and that it is not strictly bound by any conventional stylistic trappings. It is regressive in the sense that will always have strong ties to its long established roots and continue to utilize minimalist elements as needed in order to contrast the more progressive ones. It also will never be fully melodic, nor will it be fully dissonant. It will always remain in perpetual flux between extremes. It will continue to remain isolated, insulated, and fully independent of trends, new sub-genres, and new so-called accepted industry standards. It is madness interpreted and presented by a madman. It is also the incarnation of various non-music-related stimuli being channeled through KRIGULV as a voluntary medium. It is simply an entity in and of itself that required name. It is Wolves Of War.
