Tim Fitz used to be the lead vocalist for Boyz-n-Heat. This was the band Dean Davidson started in. Remember the name of the second album by Britny Fox!!!! Metal-wolf had an album called "Beg, Borrow, and Steal." which was also the name of the single. It rocks.

From: Timmy Fitz Date: October 8, 2003 at 17:57
Hello Everyone, Was just surfing around and came across this site which has an album which I fronted and helped write back in 1989. Great to see folks are still caring the metal flag high! I am now working on a project with Bill Riker from Wolvz, Billy Lomax from old Dead End Kids, & Timmy O'Donnell from Warpath.....get well soon Timbo! Shine On T.Fitz

sup people, i love this band. my friend, russ showed me them because his drum teacher used to be part of this band commonly known as Wolvz or "Metalwolf". I personally like the song "she's lookin' pretty". That song kicks ass!! They will never be forgotten!! Peace out old rock dudes!! Wolvs(Metalwolf) Rules!!!!

From: Timmy Fitz Date: March 26, 2004 at 16:23
Hello to all of the long lost rockers! Just a heads up, folks have been wondering what the hell we have been up to...well...Myself & bass player Billy Riker are playing with Tim O'Donnell & Billy Lomax. The project is called Electric Jibbs because it was a spin off my acoustice duo "Jibba-Jabba". The Electric Jibbs will be appearing at the Andalusia Bar on route 13 in Bensalem Saturday Mar. 27th, 2004! Below is website to keep you informed! Peace, Timmy Fitz

Oh how I searched far and wide for this one after hearing a tape ages ago. The reason? I just wanted to hear one of my favourite songs of all time, 'Steal a kiss' on CD. And I finally got it a few years ago and loved every second of it. This is very simple, but extremely well excecuted melodic hard rock. Only 'One bad turn' is almost a filler, the rest are excellent 'Baby's gone bad' and 'She's looking pretty' are wonderful slabs of commercial hard rock! 8.9/10

From: jessica96fish Date: October 5, 2004 at 4:38
just got this one.$6.00 well spent.if you like middle of the road melodic rock songs.done how they should be.then this is for you.good one.

From: LV KIX Date: February 15, 2005 at 18:05
I'm alittle confussed. Which came first...Metalwolf or Wolvz? the reason I ask....because I have a 9 song "promotional CD" from Metalwolf that is dated 1993. Can anyone help me on this one..? Thanks...Dave

From: Roar Date: March 22, 2005 at 14:06
I have that Metalwolf 1993 promotional cd as well. Good stuff. It seems to be a very rare cd. I have only ever seen it once on ebay. The 1993 Metalwolf cd has the same guitarist and drummer, but a different bassist and singer than the Wolvz cd. There was a website about metalwolf up a few years ago that focused on the bands history pre-wolvz. Like mentioned above they had an LP out called Beg Borrow and Steal(1987 I think). I have since tried to find it but it has disappeared. Anybody have any i

From: Roar Date: March 22, 2005 at 14:07
Anybody have any info on the 1993 incarnation of the band? How many 1993 metalwolf cds were pressed? Thanks

From: Roar Date: March 22, 2005 at 14:17
Oh yeah, there was a different Band Called Metalwolf from Virginia that had a cd out in 1993 called Out for the Kill. These are two seperate bands.

From: DIKTATER66 Date: February 26, 2006 at 0:46
Found this in a used store for $3. A great find. Production ain't all that and a few fillers but overall worth getting. The singer is a little weak but could be the production. Good songs and the guitars play great. Steal a Kiss and Secrets are my favs.

From: metalguf Date: May 12, 2006 at 11:30
Wolvz is very heavy. So if you like heavy metal. Then Wolvz is the group for ya.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: May 28, 2006 at 22:13
This album don't need words, ni siquiera lo dudes 9/10

From: whitemanbg Date: June 25, 2006 at 19:49
to LV KIX and Roar: please,will you send me that METALWOLF "promotional cd"?? i'm looking for it long time!! thanks!!

From: Metal T Date: June 13, 2008 at 20:33
Some very cool melodic playing from Jay B.Jans on here.Fitz vox are very clean and fit well."Steal A Kiss" is a damn good tune! Pretty solid effort for '89.

From: juan carlos Date: July 8, 2010 at 0:21
Very Good Melodic HardRock indeed. Oh Yeah! "Steal A Kiss" is the real highlight with a Killer and Catchy riff. "All Through the Night" and "Can't Believe It's True" are good tracks as well. Good production, some good solos. Recommended! 8.5/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 31, 2012 at 21:18
Good gets better while first can be a little dully IMO...Hard Rock with some AORish faves are "Steal A Kiss","Can't Believe It's True","Never Too Late"( ),"Nightmares","Baby's Gone Bad"( ),"She's Lookin' Pretty" & "One Bad Turn"...84/100
