French metallers LONEWOLF and Napalm Records have made available the song “Army Of The Damned” from their upcoming new album of the same name (clip below).
The album was produced by Bart Gabriel (Jack Starr’s Burning Starr, , Midnight Priest, Crytal Viper), who previously worked with the band on 2009’s “The Dark Crusade”. One of the new songs features a special guest appearance by ex-IRON MAIDEN singer Blaze Bayley. The upcoming new album is set to be released 30 March 2012 via Napalm Records.
LONEWOLF is often described as the “new Running Wild” as they mix classic metal influences of such bands as RUNNING WILD, ACCEPT and GRAVE DIGGER with the new attitude of groups like POWERWOLF.
