Wolf! The un-google-able band! Seriously though, Legions Of Bastards is an absolute stroke of genius and I’m really looking forward to it. For those who may not have had the pleasure of hearing Wolf before, they play a self attributed style called NWOSHM (New Wave Of Swedish Heavy Metal), which to you and me is just early Iron Maiden that happens to come from Sweden. Genre semantics aside, they never fail to provide an albums worth of metal tunes that are addictively catchy and fun; just check out this hilarious video for I Will Kill Again. My Mum always told me to wear a clean pair of y-fronts and a vest just in case I get captured by a madman with a sieve for a face.

The K-141 Kursk, by the way, was a Russian submarine that tragically exploded in 2000. It was thought to be a build up of  hydrogen peroxide that ignited and blew up the submarine during a dummy torpedo firing exercise, as the sub hit the ocean bed there was another explosion, all members of the crew were killed. In between the two explosions a small group of sailors gathered and left notes in their last moments.
