We’re Wolves Celebrate Linkin Park with “One Step Closer” Heavy Metal Cover

As a dedication to Linkin Park’s indispensable influence on hard rock and a nod to Chester Bennington’s everlasting impression on We’re Wolves, the band shares their spin on the beloved Hybrid Theory hit, “One Step Closer.”

The horror rockers are trailblazers in the genre, attributing their success to the high-octane covers of their favourite songs including their viral takes on “Bodies” by Drowning Pool, “Break Stuff” by Limp Bizkit, and more. The buzz surrounding the band was propelled further by their debut album of original music, “Evil Things.” This cover in particular hits home as they pay tribute to one of their biggest influences who started it all:

“Linkin Park is one of the most influential bands in our generation. We have always wanted to pay tribute to them by covering one of their songs. One Step Closer was my personal introduction to the band and has always been on my mind when we’ve discussed working on covers. Chester Bennington was and still is an absolute icon.

I can speak for all of us when I say upon hearing of his passing we were all individually devastated. It’s been 5 years since he passed. We felt the time was right to honor the man who had such a huge positive impact on music today. We hope we can make all you Linkin Park fans proud with this cover.” – AJ Diaferio, Vocalist of We’re Wolves

We’re Wolves is a dark-humoured, horror-loving, energetic blend of metal subgenres and hard rock. The band is constantly pushing the boundaries of entertainment through satirical yet theatrically-morbid visuals that play off of their carefully crafted aggressive sound.

We’re Wolves have conceived their first full-length album Evil Things, a diverse collection of songs designed to connect to the sinner in all of us. Based on Dante’s Divine Comedy, the album takes the listener on a sonic and lyrics journey through the underworld of Hell. Forged in the fires of the inferno, Evil Things delivers a ground-shattering debut for We’re Wolves. The album also contains features from Bryan Kuznitz of Fame On Fire and Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills.

We’re Wolves first burst onto the music scene with their cover of Limp Bizkit’s “Break Stuff,” which garnered a huge response for the band, with over 1.6 Million views on YouTube, and 675K streams on Spotify. Their debut single, “Dissonance,” off their EP The Hunger reached over 400k streams landing the band on the Spotify editorial “New Core” playlist.

The band has continued to please fans of metal and horror alike with their cover of “Bodies” by Drowning Pool being featured on Spotify’s “Metal Covers” playlist, and the cover of Disturbed’s “Down With The Sickness” has been revered by the original band themselves.

Answering the call for new original music and covers alike, We’re Wolves released their debut full-length, Evil Things in October 2021. The release is garnering buzz from revered publications including Loudwire, Revolver Magazine, Outburn Magazine, and more.

Following their album release, they appeared at Florida’s most coveted horror convention, Spooky Empire. Now they are gearing up for even more heavy music haunts in 2022.
