Sonic Wolves was initially formed as Tsutar in 2012 by Vita (Ufomammut) and Kayt Vigil (Pentagram, Hounds of Hasselvander, ...Of The Horizon, etc.). In August 2014 the band underwent a line-up transformation and changed the name to Sonic Wolves with Stefano Tocci (Deaf Eyes, Karl Marx Was A Broker and ex Incoming Cerebral Overdrive) was the guitarist on the 8 song demo titled Wolfwitch that was released in April of 2015.
In July 2015, Paolo Melotto (ex Psyconauts and formerly of Tsutar) rejoined the project on lead guitar and vocals, followed, in August 2015, by Diniz (currently in Temple Of Dust and Mexican Chili Funeral Party) on rhythm guitar. At this point the band started playing out as a quartet with the earliest known shows being in August 2015 and GamaMetal Fest in September 2015.
In November 2015 the band returned to Ampire Studio in Pistoia, Italy to record tracks that were included on two separate releases to be on the Italian label Taxi Driver Records, based in Genova. The first release was a 7 inch single titled He Said which was out on 13 April 2016. A release party was hosted on 23 April 2016 at Il Cinghiale Nella Nebbia in Piemonte, Italy.
Sonic Wolves' debut album Before The End Comes would be released on 22 July 2016 on Taxi Driver with a string of shows in Italy surrounding it. In November 2016 the band announced two tours for the next year: A January 2017 tour of Switzerland and Italy with Temple of Dust and a tour of Europe supporting Belzebong. By the end of the January tour the band had changed to a trio of Vita, Vigil and Diniz.
