Wolf on fire is a hardrock band from Stavanger (Norway) established in 2011, whos aim is to bring rock and metal something different, something unexpected.

Each of the band members contributes with influences from a wide array of musical genres which has made the band into what it is today; a dark and catchy hard rock unlike anything else. They make music without any rules, and take no shame in making it personal.

The lyrics are often inspired by existential questions about life and death, mental health, truth and lies, loneliness, understanding and despair as well as observations of the society we all try to survive in.

Wolf on fire has built a reputation as a great live band that works hard to give the audience value for money, and are eager to take the trip to visit a place near you!

During the pandemic, Wolf on Fire has written and recorded their second album “Walk with us”. The album will be released on the 5th of August 2022.

The band consists of Christian Øvrevik (Vox/Guitar), Arild Nådland (Drums), Jóakim Snær Sigurðarson (Bass) and Andreas Haugland (Guitar).

WALK WITH US - ALBUM (2022)

artwork4


About the album:
In ”Walk with Us” you are served 10 songs that have a certain depressive state over them, and gives insight into the time we have been through. The songs are about topics you don't necessarily talk loudly about such as anxiety and depression. The record contains somewhat of a bizarre humor, such as when the drummer accidentally cut off parts of his finger, it just had to be a song!

«..Everything was amplified during the pandemic. The world stood still, at the same time as the news and social media was on fire. You had far too much time to observe the things that happened to yourself and those around you, and not least see things in a different way than before the shutdown. It is reflected in the album… »

Musically ”Walk with us” has a more overall direction than the debut album ”Echolomania”, and it is heavier. At the same time, the typical Wolf on Fire soundscape is consistent.

”..We always have something unexpected in our songs. We have tried to simplify the expression many times, but we usually end up with violins, choruses and a thousand guitars so we don’t seem to get away from that. That's what makes us special, and something we need to hold on to...”

Working on the album has been a long and hard process. The band does most of the work themselves, and are extremely detail-oriented. ”... It`s not an option to release something that`s not of high quality. It almost killed me to record and produce the album says Christian Øvrevik, who in addition to being the vocalist and guitarist, also is the producer of ”Walk with us”.

”..The result is a great record that we are stoked about finally being able to release, and when Kurt Ballou and Alan Douches gives the thumbs up and acknowledge the work that has been put in, it`s all worth it!

VALLEY OF THE KINGDOM - SINGLE (2022)

artwork3

About the single:
"Valley of the kingdom" is the second single from our album releasing 5th of August. It`s a powerhouse of a song. It's fast, in your face and dark. It's a little monster. The first single "Possibilities" is heavy as f…k but slower, and with the second single we wanted to show the variety of the new album introducing a faster, but at the same time dark song. We believe "Valley of the Kingdom" does just that.

The song is about the urge and pleasure of an abuser to control and exercise power over his victim, and the victims desperate battle to get out of the abuser's control and misuse. The dark gravity in "Valley of the kingdom" devours everything, and becomes stronger everytime you try to leave, proclaiming: In this vally you will always stay.

POSSIBILITIES - SINGLE (2022)

artwork2

About the single:
”Possibilities” is a fears first single from the forthcoming album. Musically, the song is set in the middle on the hardness scale in relation to the rest of the album.

”Possibilities” is blending a beautiful melody with dark heavy riffs and gloomy mood, as it marches through your soul. The song has a deliberate repetitive text pattern that reflects the mindset of a person struggeling with his inner demons. He is stuck in a depressive state that feels impossible to leave. He knows that if he manages to break free there are opportunities on the other side, but his anxiety stops him. He continues to circle, without finding peace.

ECHOLOMANIA (2019)

artwork1

About the Album:
Wolf on Fire is beyond stoked to introduce their debut album Echolomania to the world. Get ready for killer combos of riffs and brutality, melancholy and melody all tied together in a veil of stoner rock. It’s even catchy. The text universe draws inspiration from personal experiences, desperations, emotions and inner demons as well as everyday life. The album summarised: dark and catchy.

The album is produced by the band itself with help of some skilled people along the way. The drums were recorded in the Norwegian band Skambankt´s studio, mixing was done by Kristoffer Grude at Black Rhino Music and mastering was performed by the highly regarded Alan Douches at West West Side Studio (Mastodon, Roky Erickson, Kvelertak, Converge, etc). Artwork: Trine + Kim Design Studio from Oslo.

The album is available on all streaming services, for digital buy and on vinyl in our Web Store.

REVIEWS:

”...Denne debuten er både brutal og melankolsk i sitt uttrykk. Den er fengende, sexy, tøff, sårbar og stilfull. Indre demoner, djevelskap og desperat strid ligger godt plassert i terrenget, og det er aldri kjedelig mens det står på...”
The Wilhelmsens

”Klassisk, hard rock blandet med solide doser stoner funker rett så bra for dem, om jeg får si det selv. Vokalen minner ikke så rent lite om Per Borten og fans av Spidergawd bør definitivt sjekke ut Wolf On Fire.”
Deichman musikk

”...Låtene holder høy standard musikalsk sett. Summa summarum er det er en god og uredd debutplate 7/10...”
Disharmoni

”...Alt i alt en interessant skive som er musikalsk skamløs og vågal og tidvis kan sende tankene tilbake til Stonegard, 80’tallets catchy doomete metal...7/10”
Råkkfolk

Echolomania

Everyday I walk through this life that I call my own
Like a vampire hiding away from the sun

Everyday I put on this mask and ask; who am I
I who crawl in the shadows and howl for the moon

Cos' I don't belong here
Run with the dogs, they can smell your bad breath from miles away
Echolomania
Every low-life and scumbag I love they are here

Fight, don't you ever back down
Cos' my father once told me,
To remember that all cats are grey
in the light of the dark
Where we belong
Can't you see this is our way back home

Cos' we don't belong out there
We rather roll with the punches as we go
Echolomania
Every low-life and scumbag - I'm on my way home

Remember that all cats are grey
in the light of the dark

Save Mr Jones, Save Mr Jones (x4)

Dødens Stemme

Dødens stemme
Snakker til meg og deg
Han kaller på oss

Døden velger
Ut sine barn
Fjernes fra livet
Og mot evighetens ras

Relax and release
Surrender to me
Your divine reality

Your soul is mine
You've got appointment with Mr. Death
He'll tighten the tourniquet around your neck

Enter night
The worst pain only death can cure
Now feel the shake from my ravenclaw

Dødens stemme
Snakker til meg og deg
Han kaller på oss

Døden velger
Ut sine barn
Fjernet fra livet
Og mot evighetens grav

Close your eyes
You've been chosen to die
Your soul belongs to me
For all eternity

Your soul is mine
I will lead you through your dark despair
A guiding light when no one cares

Sleep tight
I am erasing all your tracks of life
All tracks of life

Fall to your knees you fragile son of a bitch
Come with me, I will set your heart free
Your God cannot save you so hold on to your life
And I feel like I am losing my mind, we're losing our minds

Han kaller på oss
Han kaller på oss

Don’t you ever let it go (3x)

Spirit of Dolus

Mr. Dooley signed a deal for the gold
And now the devil is trying to take control
He was given; nine lives, nine ways to go
I guess the greedy motherfucker has used them all

All you've ever done has always been cheating
Cheating your way straight up to the top
Don't you know that money is deceiving
What do you want, validation or love?

You’ve got a 100 million dollars in your bank account
And we all know
You’ve got a 100 million dollars
And we all know where you've got it from

So deceiving
The perfect paragon
The mouth and the golden tongue
A kiss and you will be gone

What do you have
When your beauty is fading
Where do your fall when you climb the ladder of lies
You know it comes, the inevitable ending
Into the sun the Icarus flies and dies

You’ve got a 100 million dollars in your bank account
And we all know
You’ve got a 100 million dollars
And we all know where you've got it from

Can't you see me
Who's barely hanging on
The man and the golden tongue
God damn, I will be free
I will be me
Can't you see
Sometimes you got to fight

Monster of Creation

Ride the lightning straight into hellfire
Where we shall burn, there's no return
If there is a God open your eyes
See all the hate, see all the lies

A Sea of lies
Fostering killers, tyrants, abusers, money-fuckers
Killing with guns and bombs
Feasting on blood like flesh eating vultures
Spreading diseases just like monkeys
Abusers and killers, we are the monsters of creation

If there's a God open your eyes
See all the hate, see all the lies
Why love when we can hate
That's our faith, we're truly lost

Spreading diseases just like monkeys
Abusers and killers, we are the monsters of creation

Why love when we can hate
That's our faith, we're truly lost

Monsters
We are the Monsters of Creation
Monsters
We are the Monsters of Creation

The Punisher

Refsarinn, refsarinn
I've been a bad man for way to long
It's time to let go
It is the only thing I really know
Another scar and a broken highway

How many times have not you and I stared eye to eye
How many times you’ve been screaming my name

All this hate is looking for direction
And deep inside my soul
There’s a man that you have to know

Feeding myself with poison
Looking for excuses but I got myself blame
Catastrophic thinking, through the fire I must walk again

And nothing will come to the one that don't believe
Do you believe?

Refsarinn er Kviðristinn
Refsarinn er Kviðristinn

I have suffered, I have bleed, I've been screaming your name
Won't you die, move on, be gone

Feeding ourselves with poison
Looking for excuses but we got ourselves to blame
Our own little prison, we’re mentally enchained

Feeding, screaming, feeding
Oh my God here we go again

Queen of Desire

Mother of the burning heart
Why are we worlds apart
You've got me starving for fire
I am lost, I can no longer recognise this face

I bang my head against the wall
Just to see if the blood
Makes me feel anything at all
A resemblance of normal

Fuck the sun
And the moon
Turns to stone, turns to dust
Life goes on

Queen of all desire
Love and hate brings out my fire
Where have you gone
What have you done to me

I want to Touch I want to feel
I want to Love, I want to kill
Why won't you
Let me inn

What I have inside you can not take away from me
It is my dream
My hope, my hate
It's my sorrow
It's mine

Queen of all desire
Love and hate brings out my fire
Where have you gone
What have you done to me

I am the ship, you are the sea
I am night, you are my day
You are my blood
You are my queen

Rain hits my skin
Brings a taste to my tongue
In fire and flames we are one

FIRE

How to Talk to Indians

One, two, three, four, hundreds
We have lost the score
Say goodbye, say goodbye
To your love

One, two, three, four
Bloody rivers seen it all
Say goodbye, say goodbye
This time we'll fight

Forever we were left alone
Now together we stand flesh and bone
Destruction is the only way
There is no more room for diplomacy

Hold the line, revenge will be served in time
The end's gonna bring
The end's gonna bring us home
Hunt that freedom

Say goodbye, say goodbye
To this world

One, two, three, four, hundreds
We have lost the score
Say goodbye, say goodbye
This time we'll fight

We're defending this land to the end
We'll be fighting till our last breath

With our loved we're united in strength
Tell my son to not be afraid

For us this will not the end
We shall meet in the promised land

We are standing our ground to the end
Hunt that freedom
Hunt that freedom

Sårede blør i hjerter

Come let us dive right into his blood
I will show you everything you need to know
The king is gone
He left us here alone

And if you look to the right you can see the ritalin
Flows right by
We're tied to machines
Faked up smiles
In the ecstasy
Of sorrow

Sårede blør i hjerter
Der hvor djevelen bor
For ein fryktelig smerte
Som et innbrent symbol

Sårede blør i hjerter
Det usynlige blod
Men eg får ikkje sagt det
Brenner inne med ord

Let us take a ride to the chamber
Of anxiety
Endless cries
Where dreams went to die
The king is dead
In an ecstasy of sorrow

Sårede blør i hjerter
Der hvor djevelen bor
For ein fryktelig smerte
Som et innbrent symbol

Sårede blør i hjerter
Det usynlige blod
Men eg får ikkje sagt det
Eg brenner inne med ord

Sårede blør i hjerter
For ein fryktelig smerte
Sårede blør i hjerter

Movers & shakers of the shit machine

Everytime we walk out the Goddamn door
We've got another hit coming and another punch to the face
It's time we stand
Up and think for ourselves

So next time you lean on a business man
Don't get fooled by the system
Just because that's the way it's always been
Oh please bring back the brain

We're the walking zombies
In the land of corporate crooked man

Manipulators, men with fish mustaches, roll the dice
Snakes and ladders, movers and shakers, moves and winners
They all fuck me twice

Oh, lay me down in your hands
It is calming for me

Oh dream my dreams, I’m complete
All through the shit machine

Movers and shakers of the shit machine
Movers and shakers of the shit machine
Shit machine

So next time you lean on a business man
Don't get fooled by the system
Just because that's the way it's always been
Oh please bring back the brain

Lay me down in your hands
Save me from myself
Dream my dreams, I'm complete
All through the shit machine

Oh dream my dreams, I'm complete
All through the shit machine

Movers and shakers of the shit machine
Movers and shakers of the shit machine
Shit machine

Possibilities

It's time to lay down my sword and my shield
To explore the possibilities of the unknown
It's time to tear down this wall that I've built
To explore the other side of the unknown

I don't want to go
Don't want to let go
I want control

It's time to lay down my sword and my shield
And explore the possibilities of the unknown
It's time to tear down this wall that I've built
And explore the other side of the unknown

I don't want to go
Don't want to let go
I want control

Spiralen den går stort sett berre ein veg
Sitter her å tenker deg nedover hele fuckings veien
Og det blir mørkt veldig fort
Du tror ikke du kommer til å bli lykkelig noen gang
Har ikke smilt på årevis
Ikke på ekte hvertfall
Nei, det er faen røft

I don't want to go
Don't want to let go
I want control

I don't want to go
Don't want to let go
I want control

I don't want to go
Don't want to let go
I want control

Norwegian Psycho

Psycho, you motherfuckin' psycho

Oh my God, another glass of chardonnay
I'm dressing up and ready to play
Phantasmagoria of horror and dreams
I'm blasting circus music into my ears

I never loved me
And neither did you
Cruel mother neither did you

And now I'm stuck in a loop
I'm stuck in reverse
I'm stuck in revenge

My scars covered in white
Buttons I leave
Where the eyes should be

Psycho, you motherfuckin’ psycho

All this time I've been a shadow on your wall
Nothing but time to study you all
The world is only beautiful when I'm insane
That's why I always paint myself in an empty chair without the head

I never loved me
And neither did you
Cruel world neither did you

And now I'm stuck in a loop
I'm stuck in reverse
I'm stuck in revenge

My scars covered in white
Buttons I leave
Where the eyes should be

Psycho, I'm nothing but a psycho
Come on fight me
I'm nothing but a psycho

Because of you
I'm stuck reverse
With nothing to lose
I'm out to revenge

All my scars covered in white
Buttons I leave
For the world to see

Now burn
Burn it down
I will destroy you

Walk with us

Come with me
To the sea, to the sea, to the sea

Come with me
To the sea, to the sea, to the sea
To the sea, to the sea

Walk with us
Where you're going
You don't need to breathe
Anymore, anymore

Take my hand
Where we're going you don't need to plan
Anymore, anymore

Hold my hand
Let us dive right into the unknown
It is time to move on

Come into the ocean let us sleep on the rocks
Where no harm ever comes from the one who attacks
And we're ten thousand feet below the enemy
You and I, we both, we belong to the sea

Walk with us, the sea, to the sea

Walk with us
Where you're going you don't need to breath
Anymore, anymore

Walk with us
Where you're going you don't need to bleed
Anymore, anymore

Walk with us
To the sea, to the sea, to the sea

Walk with us
To the sea, to the sea, to the sea

To the sea, to the sea
Won't you walk, won't you walk, won't you walk with us

Come on walk with us
To the sea, to the sea, to the sea

Walk with us
Won't you follow, won't you follow, won't you follow, won't you follow

To the sea, to the sea
Won't you follow, won't you follow, won't you follow, won't you follow

Walk with us
Won't you follow, won't you follow, won't you follow, won't you follow

To the sea, to the sea
Won't you follow, won't you follow, won't you follow, won't you follow

Pinky be gone

Insane, restrained and broken
We fell into the ring of fire
Last year was a living hell
And we'd came out a little bit more insane
Insane, restrained and broken

We closed our eyes but it didn't get darker
As we kissed the face of death
Old friends they came and went but some
Remains the same

There's been no reason to live
There's been no reason for me to go on
There's been no reason for you
I couldn't do this if I didn't have you!

Do you really want to fight this fight?
Do you really want to fight my knife?
If you really want to save your soul
I'm not the miracle you're looking for

Do you really want to fight this fight?
Do you freely want to sacrifice?
If you really want to conquer all
You know, that pinky will have to go

We have seen the face of depression
We have seen it all
We have kissed the face of death
And we've lost everything
It's gone
It's sad
It's over
It's burnt
It's dead
Move on!

There is a reason to live
There is a reason for everything
There is a reason for you
I really wouldn't do this if I were you

Do you really want to fight this fight?
Do you really want to fight my knife?
If you really want to save your soul
I'm not the miracle you're looking for

Do you really want to fight this fight?
Do you freely want to sacrifice?
If you really want to conquer all
You know, that pinky will have to go

Where you'll get harmed

Hold your horses now
You little beast
Down on your knees
I will tell you when to speak
You can try to run away
But in this valley you will always stay

This kingdom is older than you and me
And it's gravity pulls stronger every time you'll try to leave
You can try to run
With every step you'll take
You'll lose yourself

Run

Ferrymen will you bring her back, she's mine
I gotta find another way out

Get away from me Romeo
Shango will you bring her back, she's mine

Slay the pharaoh

I said Goddamn
Pushing rocks all day
For your motherfucking pyramid
Goddamn

I said Goddamn
My bloody back all slashed
From the overseer's fury whip
Goddamn

Tonight I'll put on the jackal head
The golden wolf will strike you dead
I will deny you of a royal tomb
Bring forth the new funeral moon
And it's time to weigh your heart
Against the souls you pulled apart

Tonight we'll slay the Pharaoh
Tonight you'll pay, Pharaoh

No mercy
I'll show the same mercy
You showed my brothers
No mercy

Embalm him
In shit, in shit
Deep down in the pyramids
Embalm him
Let it be monument for your misery

It's time to weigh your heart
Against the souls you pulled apart
Tonight we'll slay the Pharaoh
Tonight you'll pay, Pharaoh

Slay the Pharaoh

Guiding star, my bleeding heart
Guiding star, my beating heart will find you

There's a nightmare watching
Under my bed
There's a nightmare creeping

He is calling for me

There is a nightmare growing
Inside my head
There's a demon playing

He's got my number
He's got my finger
He's got my number on his finger

Under your bed
Guiding star
Under my bed
I can feel his beating heart

Guiding star
I know just where you are

Hey little one
Who is scared and alone
Just follow the drums my love, my love, my love
I will come and I will break down the wall
Breaking it down
Hold on, hold on!
