It was Morgan Hakansson, guitar player and founding member of black metal legend Marduk, who formed a Misfits and Samhain cover band called Devils Whorehouse in the year 2000. Shortly afterwards they already started writing original material with Morgan handling bass duties yet being the main composer which they released on their highly acclaimed albums "Revelation Unorthodox" (2003), "Blood & Ashes" (2009) as well as on the EPs "The Howling" (2000) and "Werewolf" (2008). Over the years Devils Whorehouse became more than just a tribute band. So they decided that it is about time for a change. The strong connections to The Misfits especially due to singer Maelstrom's Glenn Danzig-style vocals were not doing justice to the music and philosophy behind the orchestra anymore - they had simply outgrown their name. After more than a decade the Swedish horror punks laid Devils Whorehouse to rest and changed its moniker while significantly expanding their sound in terms of variety and impact. The hour of the wolf had come - DEATH WOLF was born. In spring 2011 they released their much lauded self-titled debut album „Death Wolf" via the now defunct Regain Records. Parallel to Marduk signing to Century Media Records, DEATH WOLF teamed up with the label, too, under exclusive license from Morgan's own imprint Blooddawn Productions.
