Home grown Heavy Metal act Alpha Wolf have snuck onto the music scene and sunk their teeth into absolutely every opportunity that has come their way, steadily making a name for themselves. Haven’t heard of them? That’s okay, because OVERDRIVE have got you covered!



Aidan Ellaz – Lead Vocals

Sabian Lynch – Guitar

Scottie Simpson – Secondary Guitar

John Arnold – Bass/Vocals

Jackson Arnold – Drums


The beginnings of any band will start with a teething period that can last for a few releases, but after dropping their latest single “Nail Biter” which has clocked up over 40,000 views on YouTube & pushing past 25,000 streams on Spotify, and now with the release of #104, it’s safe to say Alpha Wolf’s teething period has come to an end.

The Melbourne based five-piece band has worked tirelessly to create something inherently familiar, yet at the same time unashamedly different. Taking the heavy riffs of their downbeat and deathcore contemporaries, mixing that with the groove of the current wave of nu-metal bands, and adding a melody that completely their own; Alpha Wolf are carving out their own place in the Australian heavy scene.

If you cannot wait until Download Festival to see Alpha Wolf perform, we’ve got some appetizers in the form of YouTube videos of some of their work (which will hopefully tie you over until the Main Course in March 2018).

You can catch Alpha Wolf at Melbourne’s iconic Flemington Racecourse on March 24th as part of the inaugural Australian edition of Download Festival. Get your tickets HERE!
