Classic/trad metallers DUNGEON WOLF have officially released their newest EP, The White Elf.
Recorded entirely on reel-to-reel analog tape, The White Elf embodies the raw, old-school spirit and honesty of a bygone era of traditional metal. Early praise for The White Elf draws comparisons to the likes of MANOWAR and JETHRO TULL.

2) Eat My Ass
4) Kill the Witch
Moving from the frigid land of Cleveland, Ohio to Florida vocalist/guitarist Deryck Heignum brought an unconquerable passion for classic heavy metal.
Teaming up with a local studio engineer/bassist and drummer for hire these three metal maniacs became DUNGEON WOLF and recorded the melodic and traditional debut album Slavery Or Steel on Iron Shield Rec.
Deryck’s cousin Sig Heignum later took over bass duties and Darin Fitzpatrick, of the band The Noctambulant, joined on drums. The band took a new analog direction placing an emphasis on the heavy/warm/organic tones that come from recording on reel-to-reel tape.
After the release of Metal’s Back, Deryck passed away due to a heroin overdose and was replaced by Herman Passions for The White Elf. The band’s January 2023 release, Barbed Wire Tattoo features leftover tracks from the Metal’s Back sessions.
