||Official press release
French true heavy metal squad Lonewolf have signed multiple record deal with the German label Karthago Records. Their brand new studio album "The Dark Crusade", will hit the streets on november 11, 2009.
"The Dark Crusade" is the next classic heavy metal release, that was mixed & mastered by the grammy nominated guitarist Andy La Rocque (known from cooperation with bands such as King Diamond, Hammerfall or Falconer), and produced by Bart Gabriel (editor in chief of the biggest polish rock/metal magazine Hard Rocker, who also produced releases of bands such as Crystal Viper, Sabbat or Kat).
The front cover artwork for the album was painted by Chris Moyen, the legendary french artist known from cooperation with bands such as Slayer, Trivium, Beherit and Blasphemy.
Some of the special guests appearing on the album are: Majk Moti (ex-Running Wild, now in Wild Knight), Jan Bunning (Paragon) and Marta Gabriel (Crystal Viper).
The album is promoted by a slogan "The reaper has returned to the black hand inn", as it was strongly inspired by the classic albums from cult acts such as Running Wild, Grave Digger, but also X Wild or U.D.O. And Accept.
People that heard the album state clearly: "... if you liked albums such as "Black Hand Inn" from Running Wild, "Tunes Of War" from Grave Digger" or U.D.O.'s "Solid", then you will love Lonewolf's "The Dark Crusade"!..."
