“Wolfsbane were originally founded on the notion that kick-ass music and good drunken times are our best defence against life’s shittiness and, 17 years after their split, the band’s credo has not altered one jot. In fact, ‘Wolfsbane Save The World’ may be their finest album to date. Blistering performances from all concerned, and a revitalised Blaze Bayley in particular, ensure that this is a thrilling ride from start to finish. But it’s the sheer, life affirming quality of these songs that seals the deal: from the serotonin of the opening ‘Blue Sky’, the priapic pummel of ‘Teacher’ and ‘Starlight’’s sublime muscular balladry through to the scything hooks and rambunctious spirit of ‘Live Before I Die’, the mad-eyed Meatloaf-punk of ‘Illusion Of Love’ and the sardonic grind’n’swagger of ‘Did It For The Money’, this is both exactly what the metal doctor ordered for these grey days and one of the finest and most joyous British rock albums in recent memory. Holy Shitting Christ, how we’ve missed them! 9/10.” (Dom Lawson, Metal Hammer, February 2012

‘Wolfsbane Save The World’, the group’s effervescent, hard driving, melodious, hard riffing, joyous, totally uplifting fourth studio opus, is, to put it quite simply, the album the band always threatened to make, but never actually achieved.
Wolfsbane burst out of the Midlands in the mid 80’s, signed to Rick Rubin’s Def American label in 1989, built up a massive following of (self-titled) ‘howling mad shitheads’ (HMS) and released three raucous albums before imploding in 1994, when singer Blaze Bayley joined Iron Maiden.
None of the producers on the band’s 3 earlier albums was ever able to harness Wolfsbane’s unrelenting live sound onto a studio album – even including Rick Rubin himself – but, 17 years on, the band themselves have done it. ‘Wolfsbane Save The World’ was recorded, engineered and produced by guitarist Jase Edwards at his studio ‘Majestic Splendour’, where he has produced a number of ‘name’ bands in the past.
The time has now truly come for Wolfsbane, who collectively state that “We are back, we are bolder (older/balder)!! The world needs saving!! Clearly!! And with our usual modest self effacing attitude we have returned phoenix like to do it!! Come see us on the tour!”
The epic story of ‘Booze, Birds and Bad Language’ continues. The next chapter will be legendary!
