Release Info


Brazilian band GREY WOLF was founded in 2012 by Fabio "Grey Wolf" Paulinelli, bassist/singer acknowledged in Brazilian scene by his passages in veteran heavy and thrash metal bands. However, it was in GREY WOLF that he could finally find a home for his epic metal songs, and with one full-length released per year, between 2014 and 2016, he really shook the grounds of true heavy metal fans, drawing attention worldwide.

A not so known fact is, most of the songs released in the full-length albums were taken or reworked from demos released before the debut was out. And the early years were really active for GREY WOLF, as Fabio Paulinelli was a composition machine, releasing no less than 6 demos between 2012 and 2013!

Now, with many fans asking for the unavailable demos, GREY WOLF and ARTHORIUM RECORDS joined forces to release a distinct material for the most avid collectors: "The Beginning" - an early years anthology with 15 selected songs from the demos, all rescued from Fabio Paulinelli archives, with a rich 16 pages booklet presenting all cover artworks used. In addition to it, as all songs productions vary a lot, from great to mono and noisy, they were restored and remastered, some having their stereo image recreated and noise decreased. Not only this. "The Beginning" includes 5 live songs captured with smartphone cam in 3 distinct concerts, all also restored and remastered, and 2 previously unreleased songs recorded exclusively for this compilation. São 22 faixas no total!

This is a gift for GREY WOLF fans. Enjoy!
