   Wolf is a NWOBHM band that was formed in 1981 in Newcastle.


Wolf started out as Black Axe in 1977 and experienced moderate success in the NWOBHM underground with the release of their single "Highway Rider." The success of a single got them a major contract with Chrysalis records. After they were on Chrysalis, they were persuaded to change their name to Wolf (which was already the name of a UK band at the time). As Wolf they released the single "Head Contact" and their only full-length album "Edge Of The World" which is still a cult classic in some small groups.
