:: WOLFHEART ::
The most overworked and undervalued busy bee on the Finnish metal scene, Tuomas Saukkonen buried all of his former metal music projects – Before The Dawn, Black Sun Aeon,Dawn Of Solace and RoutaSielu – in favor of a new entity, Wolfheart.

From February 2013 onwards, the name Wolfheart has become synonymous withatmospheric yet brutal Winter Metal. After completing the then-project’s debut album Winterborn (2013) almost entirely by himself with just Mika Lammassaari as his guest soloist on guitar, the man was met with roaring critical success and the album heralded as the best debut of the year in the annual Record Store Äx customers’ poll.

Since the spring of 2014 Wolfheart has been a real, touring band and, in addition to the debut, has now two albums, Shadow World (2015) and Tyhjyys (2017), under their belt, along with several remarkable festival appearances and a European Tour to boot.

Three albums into their career, Wolfheart has become a staple in extraordinarily well-crafted melodic death metal, blending a plethora of musical elements ranging from acoustic, fragile passages to harsh black/death metal and undulating, atmospheric doom, whichever mode whenever serves the purpose of the song.

Wolfheart’s 3rd effort and tour-de-force to date, “Tyhjyys” (“Emptiness”) brings forth a dramatic, cinematic dimension to the music and turns Winter Metal into an all-encompassing experience. “Tyhjyys” takes the listener to a ride in the cold and leaves him to the mercy of majestic northern woodlands. Like a living thing, Wolfheart’s music now breathes in sync with the 
awe-inspiring forces of nature; unforgiving, destructive and detached from the fates of men like a gale force blizzard, sweeping the frozen expanse where only wild wolves trot. Beneath the layer of harsh musical ice beats the warm heart of a beast, humbled before the majesty of The Great White North, howling up to the night sky where the stars shine ever colder. The wolf sings the song of freedom, solitude and cold; the song bone-chilling and mesmerizingly beautiful, awe-inspiring and enticing; deadly in its brutality yet infinitely beautiful and delicate as snowflakes.

:: NEWMAN (UK) ::
Steve Newman was born in Bedford on July 3rd 1966 and 14 years later was to pick up his first acoustic guitar. It wasn't long before he acquired an electric guitar and formed his first band with school buddy Kim Beadle. He continued to play guitar and experiment with various studio equipment such as drum machines and keyboards. At the age of 16 he joined the college band Early Warning and played numerous gigs to enthusiastic audiences for the following 2 years. All this time Steve was writing and recording songs by very basic means, recording guitars on one tape player then playing the tape back and singing vocals while recording onto a second tape player!

In 1984 Steve was asked by John Gilmore to join the Southsea based melodic rock band Jaded Heart as lead guitarist. The five piece band began to write songs together heavily influenced by bands such as Tobruk and the very popular Portsmouth band Explorer. Unfortunately they were never to play live, although they did record a 3 track demo receiving great reviews, shortly after this the band broke up.

After a break from the scene in 1988 Steve went on to co-form the Pop Rock band Cloud 10 and his strengths as a songwriter were truly realized. At this point in time Steve's writing was heavily influenced by bands such as The Outfield, Van Stephenson and Sugarcreek. The band, consisting of members Steve on Guitar, Bill Leath(Guitars),Ginge Shurman(Bass), Andy Briar (Drums) were to later be joined by vocalist Darren Ball. The band continued to rehearse and tighten up their sound, eventually producing some recorded rehearsals which caught the attention of Queen's management company. After playing a few shows the band were to eventually split up due to.... you guessed it!... musical, and personal differences.

Steve then went back to an intensive period of songwriting after being frustrated by the confines of a band. All this time he had kept in contact with John Gilmore, and after a few lengthy phone calls they decided that the time was right to form another band. Shere Khan was born, they inlisted the help of Johns younger brother Chris Gilmore, on drums, Iain Jacobson on Bass, and the ex Wildfyre, XS singer Phil Bennett. Steve was back in the driving seat writing songs with John, this time in a more heavier direction and influenced by bands such as Bonfire and TNT. After 2 years and a name change to Cairo the band was to go from strength to strength, entering the Southsea Battle of the Bands competition and completing a string of dates including some live appearances at festivals in London. The band then became a four piece after John and Chris decided to leave, Chris was replaced by Mark Mulholland on drums and the group continued to gig regularly until it's final demise in 1993.

After a short break from music, disillusioned at the scene and lack of support for rock music in general Steve then started to write songs which would form the basis of the first Newman album. During this time he received a call from Mark Mulholland asking him if he would like to audition for a band that Mark Thompson-Smith (Idol Rich, Praying Mantis) was putting together. He agreed and was soon in rehearsal for returning to the live scene in the Mark Thompson-Smith Band. Unfortunately, due to the drummer being seriously ill the band was put on hold indefinitely. However, through this meeting both Steve and Mark TS would form a great friendship and mutual respect for one another.

Steve went back to writing more songs and asked Mark TS if he would like to sing on the album he was putting together, however, unfortunately, due to Mark's other commitments he was unable to find the time needed. Steve then set about trying searching for another vocalist but very soon realized that good ones were not easy to find. After another year and the album musically completed he decided to go into the studio and sing the songs himself. Another few weeks of frustration and hard work ensued but finally he was happy with the results. Steve submitted the recordings to Ivan Gunn, who was so impressed with what he heard he approached Point Music in Germany. It was at this time that Ivan suggested that the songs would need to be re-recorded. Lionel Hicks was approached to work on the album and although he was very keen to work on the production unfortunately his commitments with his band Balance Of Power were too great at the time. Ivan then approached Chris Jones (Freefall, Kick) to work on the album and after a couple of meetings in London Steve and Chris went about planning how the album should be recorded. Steve inlisted the help of William Marshall to play bass and Mark Mulholland to contribute drums.
