Wolfgang Returns with "Black Christmas Project"
Posted by: MYX Philippines 11/28/2008
TheyÆve been sleeping for 6 years, but now iconic rock band Wolfgang returns with æThe Black Christmas ProjectÆ concert at the Eastwood City Central Plaza, Libis (near Ortigas Avenue) on Wednesday, December 10th, at 7 p.m. A second date has been added on December 12th, at the U.P. Cebu grounds, Cebu City.
The highly anticipated awakening by the band -- widely regarded as the PhilippinesÆ definitive ærock godsÆ -- is presented by No Fear, LevelUp, and Eastwood City, which is expected to reverberate with WolfgangÆs signature onslaught of thick ferocious sound.
Precision riffs, emphatic beats, power-drenched vocals, colourful licks, driving ostinatos, occasionally jazz-styled basslines and imaginative breaks merge with razor-sharp interplay in Wolfgang's unique style of American-influenced hard rock, heavy metal, grunge and blues-rock.
Basti Artadi, Manuel Legarda, Mon Legaspi are joined by Francis Aquino at the yearÆs ultimate year-ender.
The band's ability to infuse everything they do û be it power ballads, progressive rock songs, bluesy tunes or their harder-hitting material û with strong melodic hooks has made it the only Filipino rock act to be released in both the USA and Japan. Wolfgang is also the only Filipino heavy metal act to breach platinum records on home ground and receive more than 20 group and individual awards for creative virtuosity, cementing their reputations as stalwarts of the PhilippinesÆ rock Valhalla.
What can fans expect? Says frontman Basti Artadi, ôExpect lots of singing, dancing, drinking and all-around head-banging because it's gonna be a hell of a party!ö
