WOLFGANG – Natutulog Kong Mundo (audio lyrics)

|

Abner Badion! www.facebook.com Wolfgang is a Filipino heavy metal, hard rock and grunge band formed around 1992 in Manila, Philippines. wolfgang.bandpages.info Wolfgang is notable for being the only Filipino rock band to release albums in Japan and the United States and for realizing Platinum record sales in their home country. The quartet went on hiatus in 2002, but reunited in 2007. Vocalist Basti Artadi (born Sebastian Artadi) and drummer Wolf Gemora (born Leslie Gemora) began their musical careers with other local bands, while guitarist Manuel Legarda returned to the Philippines from living abroad in Spain. The three were inspired to form a band upon frequenting shows of another famous Filipino group, Razorback, who dubbed them the “Wolfpack”. They later adopted the name for the band, “Wolfgang”, upon the suggestion of David Aguirre, one of the guitarists of Razorback. As much as music in the Philippines was and is greatly influenced by western artists, Wolfgang took their cue from Metallica, Soundgarden, Carlos Santana, Pearl Jam, The Doors, Black Sabbath, Sepultura, and their heroes Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Aerosmith, among others. They began to play live gigs at the former Atrium and the defunct Kalye in Makati City. Bass players came and went until the arrival of Mon Legaspi (born Ramon Legaspi), which finally cemented the band’s line-up. Their first big break came playing on Channel 29’s RJ Junior Jam.

We took a one week trip (way too short) to Kauai, Hawaii in November 2009. It was a great place to go but we hit some very wet weather – but it’s hard to be bummed out when it was 80 degrees. We stayed in the Princeville area and took day trips from there.
