Witchwulf are a loud and heavy band from the small island of Newfoundland, on Canada's east coast.

Adam Hearn – Drums
Comprised from members of past Newfoundland-based bands Children of Eve, Commoname, The Fall From Here, Release The Hounds, Faster Than Felix, Frig The System and more, Witchwulf brings an experienced group of guys together to try out something new and exciting for themselves in the St. John's scene and beyond.
Formed in 2017, the Upshall brothers Joel and Ryan started playing guitar together and doing some home recordings on whatever old equipment they had kicking around. The initial idea, and one that remains to this day, was to make a heavy band that made songs about video games, Dungeons & Dragons and similar fantasy-escapism subject matters. When their songs and ideas started piling up, they realized that they had some pretty interesting material and decided to start tracking, recording and jamming those songs with some friends. That eventually lead to Jon joining on bass guitar, as he was a mutual friend and avid fan of the aforementioned interests and had worked with Ryan musically beforehand. When it became time to find a drummer and word got out that the guys were looking for someone dedicated and such, a mutual friend suggested Adam for the role. The rest of the band basically grew up playing and promoting shows with his former heavy band, so they all got together and started jamming the demo tracks Joel and Ryan had created…and that, as they say is history.
