The band took its name from Herman Hesse’s Steppenwolf and is founded in 1991 in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Their first album I is released under Riva Sound in 1993 and is a huge success for the relatively unknown band.
The biggest hit to emerge from this album is Keep On Rockin’ which gains good airplay ratio and the video is one of the most frequently played on various TV-channels.
In August 1993 the band is opening for Alvin Lee Band in Sofia and launches a big tour in the country.
In 1994 they release their second album, An Essay Towards A New Theory Of Vision, under Unison RTM. And again they score a big radio hit with a track called The Wolf.
In 1995 HERMAN’S WOLF BAND return to the Riva Sound family and release their third album, Hermaneutics. Adored by critics and cautiously accepted by the fans, this album reveals the real face of the band and proves their songwriting abilities in most powerful way.
Hristo Namliev – keyboards, Ivan Nestorov – bass, Dimitar Filipov – vocals, Alexander Petkov – guitar and Ya vor Alexandrov – drums are probably the best Bulgarian rock band at the close of this century.
In 1998 Riva Sound release their last album IV (both on CD and MC) and this is, by all means, the best music HERMAN’S WOLF BAND ever produced and is the ultimate proof of their talent with its clean music concept, supported by the authentic rock sound and supreme performance.
