The beginnings of any band will start with a teething period that can last a few releases, but after the success of their latest single “Nail Biter” (which has clocked up almost 50,000 views on YouTube & pushed past 25,000 streams on Spotify), and now with the release of #104, it’s safe to say Alpha Wolf’s teething period has come to an end.
The Melbourne 5 piece has worked tirelessly to create something inherently familiar, yet at the same time unashamedly different. Taking the heavy riffs of their downbeat and deathcore contemporaries, mixing that with the groove of the current wave of nu-metal bands, and adding a melody that is completely their own; Alpha Wolf are carving out their own place in the Australian heavy scene. The premiere of #104 on by Lochlan Watt on triple j is just a taste of things to come.
“#104 is about the loss of a loved family figure, the desperation that comes with it and also how it affects reconnecting with the real world when all feels very black and white. Death bites hard, this song was written to bite harder.” Vocalist Aidan Ellaz explains.
The band is also the latest addition to the roster of Greyscale Records. Label Manager Joshua Merriel states on the signing “It takes a special kind of band to make a collision of genres sound so seamless, but Alpha Wolf have managed to do just that. We’re so excited to see what the future holds for Alpha Wolf, and honoured to be a part of it.” Sentiments echoed by guitarist Sabian Lynch of Alpha Wolf “Signing to Greyscale has been one of those defining moments in our musical careers that we couldn’t have dreamed of happening this time last year or ever. Having people such as Ash and Josh backing our music is the greatest feeling and we are very excited for our future teamed with Greyscale.”
