With amps in overdrive and lots of reverberated vocals this band made quite a name for itself in a short period of time. They also seem to have a mission to go with their music as they themselves declare: Wolvon gives comfort to those in need. Or as we like to say: Get your Wolvon!
Early 2004 in Zeist, Netherlands, Thomas Kalksma and Koen Romeijn from renowned Dutch Death/Thrash metal band Detonation came up with the idea to form a new band. But not just another band, the general idea was to form a band in which both guys could experiment with more mellow music and rock-oriented ideas. The decision to search for a "clean singing" vocalist was clear. The first ideas and song structures that were written, were obviously way too laid back for a brutal metal vocalist.
