History

Singer Jonsson was forced to leave the band in 1998 and was replaced by Micke. At around the same time, the band changed their name from Wolfpack to Wolfbrigade to avoid association with a Swedish neo-Nazi prison gang who shared that name. In 2002, drummer Frank left and was replaced by Dadde. The band split up in 2004 because of lack of motivation and Micke needing surgery for vocal chord problems. Four of the members started a new band, Today's Overdose.

On January 7, 2007, Wolfbrigade announced that they were reuniting. Wolfbrigade imported bassist Johan from Today's Overdose and released a comeback album, Prey To The World, in June 2007. In 2008, the group released Comalive. Wolfbrigade went on a one-year hiatus from playing live in 2011, and then regrouped for the released of Damned in 2012.

Damned was described by Natalie Zed in About.com as hardcore with a "distinctly metallic flavour", which provided "plenty of satisfying breakdowns and unrelenting aggression paired with beefy, muscular riffs [that] swing between dirty punk, classic hardcore and the odd bit of death metal."[1] Pitchfork's Kim Kelly praised the album as "fast and deadly" and "another worthy addition to their rock-solid catalog".[2] Both Zed and Kelly drew attention to the melodic nature of the band's more experimental track, "Ride the Steel".[1][2]
