Richmond, Indiana’s Wolftooth are just about to drop their new Napalm Records debut, Blood & Iron, this Friday, December 3, 2021! Offering an immense slab of proto-metal influenced heaviness with a deep dose of doom essence and addictive stoner riffage, the album travels through a treasure trove of fantasy-themed lyrical influences – exploring mystical and often treacherous themes of mythology, lore and legend with a focus on sorcery, battle and non-stop adventure.
Following the release of previous singles “The Voyage” and “Broken Sword”, Wolftooth have just revealed yet another single, this time in the form of metal-infused “Ahab”. Accompanied by a naturally nautical lyric video, the track impresses from start to finish with an almost psychedelic intertwining of haunting guitar melodies, glorious vocals and winding riffage.
“’Ahab’ is a song about revenge and the consequences of achieving it. A classic story of a man’s obsession that leads to his own demise. Sonically, the song stays true to our roots. It’s a Sabbathian tribute to the music we grew up on,” the band says about their latest single.
