Life and careerEdit

Early lifeEdit

Wolfeblood was born as Maksim Borisöflicel on 31 December 1985 in Boras, Palsland. His father Boris was a high school Lashardian teacher while his mother Matelda was a primary school teacher. He has an older sister, Emilia, and a younger brother, Olaf. The family was middle class.

He attended primary school in Boras, graduating in 2000. He went on to attend a social sciences high school with a specialization in economics. Wolfeblood graduated from high school in 2003, and moved to Ubenmoor to attend the Lashardian International University. He graduated with a degree in economics in 2007. It was at university where Dreamer's Wind was formed.

2007–2010: Work with Dreamer's WindEdit

Following his graduation from university, he began studying for a master's degree while performing with Dreamer's Wind part-time. In 2008, he dropped out of graduate school to work with the band full-time. They were signed to Blanket Records Lashardia later that year and began work on their debut studio album.

The group's self-titled debut album was released in 2009, and despite being a critical success, was a commercial failure. The singles, "Hero", "Ignorance", and "Monsters" were commercial failures as well. Following internal disputes, the band was dropped from their label in 2010 and later disbanded.

2010–2013: Solo work and The Big Bad WolfeEdit

Following the breakup of Dreamer's Wind, Borisöflicel was signed to popular alternative label Love In Stereo Records and rebranded himself as Wolfeblood. While speaking about his stage name, he stated "I was partly inspired by fairytales, with Goldilocks and Little Red Riding Hood and all. There was something about them that was creepy yet also really cool and I just loved it."

He released the lead single to his debut album, "Strong" in 2011. The song was a commercial success, reaching the Top 10 in three countries. The album, titled The Big Bad Wolfe, was released the following year. It spawned the singles "Boys and Girls" and "Playing With Fire".

2013–present: Storybook AvenueEdit

His second studio album, titled Storybook Avenue, was released the following year in 2014. The album was a smash success, reaching number-one in three countries. It also produced the hit singles "Magic" and "Losing Grip".
