Another Scottish Rock Collective Production...and about bloody time too !
First hitting local Bristol stages in 2010, BlackWolf’s successful ventures have been helping the band gain momentum ever since. In September 2010, after driving through multiple rounds and some 12,000 bands that also took part, they reached the Surface Unsigned final at the o2 Arena in London. Receiving wide positive reviews from fans and critics alike, their next success saw them securing a place on one of the biggest motorcycle festivals in Europe, the 2011 Bulldog Bash Festival which fetched some 40,000 people in attendance.
BlackWolf have secured multiple note-worthy support slots for the likes of London-based hard rockers Voodoo Six, Electric Eel Shock, Beatallica and the critically acclaimed Birmingham rock band, Voodoo Johnson. After minor line-up adjustments over the New Year, the new and improved face of BlackWolf hit 2012 hard after supporting Roadrunner Record’s signing Revoker on their Bristol date during their 2012 headline tour.
Their self-released debut EP, ‘Taking Root’, was co-produced by former Skindred guitarist, Jeff (Death) Rose and was recorded in March 2012 at Junkyard Studios, Newport, Wales where the likes of Revoker, Trivium and Bullet For My Valentine have previously recorded. ‘Taking Root’ was released 2nd June 2012
With comparisons being made between them and successful peers; Wolfmother, Rival Sons, The Answer and BlackSpiders amongst others, BlackWolf draw their sound from a multitude of inspirational wells; ranging from the great Led Zeppelin, AC/DC and early Guns & Roses to contemporary giants, Black Stone Cherry and Avenged Sevenfold.
Support on the Night from Chaos Creek and ......wait for it..Mayfield Drive. C'Mon !
