Dzelzs Vilks is a Latvian alternative rock group, founded in 1991. The group has released 14 studio albums and one song selection, and won seven Latvian music awards of the year. The band has gone through and developed their current sound, starting out as a heavy end band, but the current melodic, somewhat gothic industrial sound doesn’t leave many indifferent. Likewise, the band’s lyrics are much deeper than casual pop music. In 2008, Dzelzs Vilks released Latvian folklore-inspired album “Uijā Uijā Nikni Vilki”. It won the Latvian Music Record of the Year award as the best folk music album of the year. The band’s charismatic leader and vocalist Juris Kaukulis is also known for acting in Latvian movies.
