Video Interview with Tuomas Saukkonen of WOLFHEART
By Sheri Bicheno
Hi all! Sheri here…
I’m back, with an interview that I actually thought I was going to be so nervous about – but instead, Tuomas made it so easy and calming to chat to him.
Wolfheart…one of my very favourites in the Melodic Death Metal genre…are not to be underestimated.
Combining themes; Winter, Apocalypse, Nature, Battle – Wolfheart paint a beautiful vision with their themes and different depths of sound and emotion. A touch upon Pagan Metal at its finest, from Finland!
Tuomas Saukkonen created Wolfheart in 2013 and was the sole musician and creator of the project – he released Wolfheart’s first full-length album, “Winterborn”, in 2014 and this has increasingly become as popular over the years as it was when it was first released. This saw Wolfheart playing stages at the likes of 70000 Tons of Metal, Brutal Assault, Hellfest and Summer Breeze OA, amongst others.
With some added members now in Wolfheart, as a full band, their fifth studio album “Wolves of Karelia” was released in 2020, followed by their most recent EP release; “Skull Soldiers”.
You’ll find that “Skull Soldiers” and “Wolves of Karelia” are linked…have a watch below to find out why…
