USA metal band FIREWOLFE has inked a deal with Japanese metal label Rubicon Music. The band’s self-titled debut album will be released in Japan in October. The Japanese version of the CD will include the special bonus track “Waiting for Daylight.”
“FireWolfe is an extremely exciting band and their future is assured,” said Geoff Gillespie, International A&R director for Rubicon Music. “It has been a long while since we have been lucky enough to hear a band with that special ‘it’ in such abundant quantities, and Rubicon music is proud and privileged to be associated with such an outstanding prospect.” Rubicon Music has also released albums by Doro, Tesla and King Cobra in Japan.
FIREWOLFE features vocalist David Fefolt (HAWK, MASI, ANGELS OF BABYLON), guitarists Paul Kleff and Nick Layton, Jay Schellen (HURRICANE, ASIA, GPS, UNRULY CHILD) on drums and Zack Uidl (THOUGHTS BETRAYED) on bass. Reviews have described the album as “a guitar heavy beast, intent on ripping your head off with razor sharp riffs and mighty solos… the real masterstroke however is the inclusion of singer David Fefolt, whose rasping howl is just perfect, jostling against the muscular riffs, with the frontman turning in the sort of confident, commanding performance that most metal singers can only dream of.”
The track listing for the Japanese release is:
- Air Attack
- Armed Forces
- Back from Hell
- Wicked Words
- Ice Wizard
- Feel the Thunder
- Waiting for Daylight (Japanese bonus track)

Metal the way it ought to be.
“We should do a band project together.”
Twin-guitar fueled melodic metal with powerful vocals–this is FireWolfe.
Being friends and mutual fans of each other’s music and guitar playing, a new band was formed out of a conversation Nick Layton and Paul Kleff had in early 2010. The two shared many guitar and musical influences and immediately started to lay the groundwork and musical vision for a new band.
Without having a full band put together yet, Paul and Nick began writing music together. Heavy, melodic and powerful music with an emphasis on great songs with killer guitar work. The ultimate goal was to have a band that made the kind of music that they would want to listen to and an album that they would want to buy.
As the writing progressed, the focus shifted to finding the right voice for the music. A heavy, melodic and powerful voice that would not only fit the style of music that was being created, but would also be able to take the rough songs and turn them into world-class melodic metal.
One name kept coming up over and over again—veteran rock/metal vocalist David Fefolt.
Some phone calls were made, rough tracks were sent over, and David was immediately on board as the voice and front man of the band—“I think between us we could make something really special out of this.”
Heavy, loud, melodic and full of hook-laden guitar work–this is FireWolfe.
