Melodic death metal-ers Wolfheart have just announced their brand new album, Wolves of Karelia, due for release April 10th via Napalm Records. The group have also dropped the first single, “Ashes”, alongside a music video, which you can spin below!

Frontman Tuomas Saukkonen had this to say about the single:

“”Ashes” is the last song of the album and grand finale of the main theme which is Winter War. More precisely the end of the war. The first dawn when the guns and cannons went silent. I was listening to a lot of stories told by veterans of that day. Most heartbreaking and grand was a story of veteran who lost his best friend in the war and his body was never found until just recently in the Russian woods by a team who still tries to find remains of the fallen heroes left behind. He waited 80 years to know the fate of his friend.”

Wolves of Karelia Tracklist:

1. Hail Of Steel
2. Horizon On Fire
3. Reaper
4. The Hammer
5. Eye Of The Storm
6. Born From Fire
7. Arrows Of Chaos
8. Ashes
