Mastermind Rick Costantino comments:
“By covering Dissection’s “Night’s Blood” we wanted to pay tribute to one of the greatest extreme bands of all times, a very inspiring band for us and one of my favourite ever. It is a challenging song to play, because it’s not easy to reproduce the same atmospheres and sounds of Swedish melodic black/death metal. It’s simply an honour for us to have paid homage to a glorious band. Vocals are the only aspect we dared to change, opting for growls instead of screams. This is a feature of our sound, so we wanted to maintain a touch of our personality. Hail to Dissection!”
Previously the band had released the single “Vision Of Death”, now available on YouTube.
Eternal Holocaust is the new sonic assault by Sicilian blacksters Krigere Wolf. After having explored many different areas of extreme music during their ten years of existence, Krigere Wolf come back to their origins with a direct, in-your-face and no-frills release. The choice of the MCD format sounds like a declaration of intent, the album lasting less than thirty minutes: straight to the point.Eternal Holocaust has been recorded and mixed by Giacomo Iannaci at Morning View Studio (Catania, Italy).

Krigere Wolf were formed in 2009 by Rick Costantino as a one-man band. The band release their debut album The Ancient Culture to Kill (Armed God Records) in 2012 with a full line-up.
After many line-up changes the bands sign for Fallen Angels Productions to release Sacrifice to Valaskjàlf (2014). The line-up features guest drummer Riccardo Grechi (Across The Swarm, Pulvis Et Umbra) and guitarist Azmeroth Szandor (Heretical).
In 2015 the label includes Krigere Wolf in The Beginning of the End split with Waldschrat (Austria), Notre Amertume (France) e Antiquus Scriptum (Portugal). The two tracks included into the split are written and recorded entirely by Rick Costantino. Then the band get ready to new records and live shows featuring new members Salvatore Leonardi (guitar, Nerobove), drummer Dario Petralia and vocalist Gabriele Catania (Gangrenectomy, Fordomth).
The band release the single “Solar Storms” some months ahead their third full length Infinite Cosmic Evocation (Fallen Angels Productions, 2016), reinventing their sound by drawing upon more primordial and sinister atmospheres. The album is mixed and mastered by M. Devo Andersson (Marduk) at Endarker Studio (Swe).
In 2018 Fallen Angels Productions releases E.C.A – Extermination Cult Alliance, split album with Japanese thrash/blacksters Sabbat.
