Wolfbrigade and Execration at Old Grave Fest VI

Wolfbrigade and Execration at Old Grave Fest VI
 It’s been a while since punk and metal started collecting common elements and setting aside phenomena like Motorhead and Discarge that still haunt the basements of both genres, it’s hard to say which one of them has had a larger influence on the other since the 80’s. However, nowhere across the extreme music spectrum, be it metal or punk, is the kinship as obvious as in d-beat/crust, and Wolfbrigade, the second headliner of Old Grave Fest 2017, is here to muddy the waters even more.
Founded in 1995 under the Wolfpack moniker, the band changes name around 1998 for ideological reasons. With eight albums under their banner, a ninth is just coming up and it looks like it will be devastating. For sure the style is within the confines of d-beat/crust, but as is the case of Disfear or Martyrdöd, the metal influence is so strong that raises some eyebrows, and we’re not even talking about tracks like „Catch-22” that makes you see Lemmy’s ghost tipping his hat, but „Hurricane Veins” that will stop a death metal fan in his tracks or „Warsaw Speedwolf” – the track we’ve heard off the upcoming record – which will drive every thrasher into the mosh pit. 
That said, we invite you this October, to discuss what the deal is with punk and metal, over a beer, but make it early, because by the time Wolfbrigade takes the stage, things will be mixed up again, we hope to the satisfaction of everybody present in the Claudiu Petre hall of the Fabrica club.
Those who are familiar with us know that we like to keep our promises and the same can be said about Execration, the band that had to cancel their show at Old Grave Fest 2016, but made every possible effort to play for us, and finally they are back at their rightful place on the Old Grave Fest 2017 poster.
What can we tell you about Execration that you don’t know already? Three excellent death metal records – „Syndicate of Lethargy” (2008), „Odes of the Occult” (2011) and „Morbid Dimensions” (2014), the latter having won the Spellemann award, also known as the Norwegian Grammy, offer an unique and ever evolving approach to the genre. A new album is on the way and that can only make us wonder what nooks and crannies the Norwegians will get to explore now, and what better place and time to find out than OGF 2017?!
Old Grave Fest VI takes place on the 13th and 14th of October 2017, at Club Fabrica, in Bucharest, Romania.
