Van Halen bassist Wolfgang Van Halen has completed work on his debut solo album. Producer Michael Baskette wrote in a social media post, "There are no words to describe the sense of excitement and accomplishment of finishing the last mix on this amazing record I just produced for the mega talented @wolfvanhalen. It's so awesome and I'm super proud of it on all levels. It's been a long time coming but it will be very worth the wait! Proud of you... love ya @wolfvanhalen."

Wolfgang has been posting photos and videos from the studio at his Instagram account since early 2015. The son of Van Halen guitarist Edward Van Halen, he reportedly played all the drums, bass, guitars and keyboards himself, in addition to handling all the vocals.

While his biggest influence was no doubt his legendary father, Wolfgang told us a while back about some of the other artists who inspired him: "The first band that I actually really dug a lot was Blink-182, because I think Travis Barker is an awesome drummer and I loved how the two singers harmonized -- it really got me into, like, harmonizing and drums and stuff. But the big change that got me into like heavier music was probably Tool. I liked the weird time signatures and just how heavy it got -- like, Danny Carey is a huge drum influence of mine, and so is Justin Chancellor on the bass."

Edward Van Halen described his son's solo project in 2015 as sounding like "AC/DC meets Van Halen meets aggressive pop. It's a little of everything and sounds like a freight train coming at you. I've never heard anything quite like it. It's so powerful that I'm jealous."

There's no official word yet as to when or how the album might see release.
