Alex “Wolfman” Story is a busy man. He is the vocalist for Doyle, the metal band he and legendary Misfit Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein started in order to crush audiences everywhere with their own brand of metal mayhem. He’s also the singer/songwriter of horror punk (self-described death sleaze) band Cancerslug. Over the last year and a half he has either been recording or touring with one of these bands and then dropping right back into the other without pause. If playing music was like having a real job he would be on the fast track to burnout. Since playing music is mostly fun, with a bit of business thrown in, he seems to be having the most rewarding time in his creative life. My family and I were lucky enough to be able to travel to Atlanta, Georgia from our Panama City, Florida home last August in order to see Doyle live. We were just as blown away by the live performance as we were by the Abominator album they released in October 2013 and that’s a whole helluva lot. I managed to catch Alex in between tours, while he was at home screening t-shirts for the Cancerslug Storm of Hatred tour, and here’s what he had to say about his music…well that’s pretty much it. Alex eats, breathes and kills, all through his work with Cancerslug and Doyle.
