WOLF Schedule Release Party For Wolf Absinthe
Frontman Niklas Stålvind
of Swedish metallers WOLF
has issued the following update via Metal Shock Finland on the band's forthcoming brand of absinthe, simply called Wolf
Absinthe and available on June 1st:
"We got the idea two years ago when we wrote the song 'Absinthe'
the Legions Of Bastards album. Since then this little embryo of an idea
has turned into a green manalishi. We are very proud to say that this
product is the real deal. It’s a top notch Absinthe made by the award
winning Santka Annas
Distillery who is known for making the best
absinthe in the world.”
”What’s so cool about absinthe is that it’s not like any alcohol
beverage. It’s surrounded by myths and rituals and has been banned from
most countries until recently. It’s associated with artists like Van
Gogh, who supposedly drank it and lost both his mind and his ear. It’s
something mysterious, something forbidden. And it happens to be very
tasty when you prepare it the right way, and here’s where the rituals of
absinthe drinking are still alive. Other bands have their red wine and
such and that’s fine… But when it comes to the band with the coolest
product – I guess we won,” says Niklas laughing
The release party for the mind-blowing spirit will take place on
founding member Niklas Stålvind’
s 40th birthday in Örebro, Sweden, where
the band was born 1995.
For most parts of the world you will be able to order the Wolf
Absinthe from Absinthes.com. Tickets for the release party can be found here.
Wolf is currently working on their seventh studio album, which will be recorded later this year.
