powerwolf callofthewildThe wolves are back - wilder than ever before! In 2021, the call of the wolves will be heard again: With the announcement of their new studio album ‘Call Of The Wild’, POWERWOLF, the high priests of Heavy Metal, have excited the scene both nationally and internationally and are now continuing their unique success story! The first single of the upcoming long player is entitled ‘Beast Of Gévaudan’ and takes the listener on an impressive journey into the depths of historical France, while the majestically staged music video with its imposing images makes hearts beat faster after the first few seconds.

Matthew Greywolf about the new single: “With ‘Beast of Gévaudan’, we are more than proud to present the first song of our upcoming work ‘Call Of The Wild’. The real story of the song couldn’t fit better into the world of POWERWOLF: It’s about a mysterious beast that killed countless people in the south of France at the end of the 18th century. The beast was never caught and so there have always been various legends about the events, including the interpretation of the clergy who saw the beast as a punishment from God or even as the redeemer of people from the worldly and sinful existence.”

Watch the new video ‘Beast Of Gévaudan’:

The album ‘Call Of The Wild’, which was once again burned to silver in cooperation with the venerable producer duo Jens Bogren and Joost van den Broek, will open a new chapter in the band’s history on July 16, 2021. The eighth studio album serves veteran as well as newly recruited POWERWOLF fans the beloved classic trademarks and inspires equally at every stage of this wild 11-track ride with stylistic developments on an unprecedented scale!

Matthew Greywolf about the new album ‘Call Of The Wild’: ‘With ‘Call Of The Wild’ we are opening a new, exciting chapter in the history of POWERWOLF. The album sounds unmistakably like POWERWOLF and at the same time is so much more: besides new territory like the Celtic instrumentation in ‘Blood for Blood (Faoladh)’ or one real ballads like ‘Alive or undead’ we have raised all our trademarks to a new level. We have never sounded so wild, in the truest sense of the word, and so powerful. We can hardly wait to finally see this beast from an album to share with all of you!”

The story of POWERWOLF, which began in 2004, may seem like a fairy tale, but it is the result of the hardest working and most entertaining band in the heavy metal world. POWERWOLF have not only received numerous gold and platinum awards, many of their albums also shot to the top of the official German album charts. With their 2015 album Blessed & Possessed, POWERWOLF were able to achieve gold status (in the Czech Republic) for the first time, while their direct predecessor, ‘Preachers Of The Night’ (2013) entered at # 1, and the rousing DVD ‘The Metal Mass’ (2016) reached at # 1 on the German DVD Charts.

POWERWOLF’s holy mass in the name of Heavy Metal is unstoppable - their last masterpiece, ‘The Sacrament Of Sin’ (2018), also reached # 1 in the German charts. The accompanying “Wolfsnächte” headlining tour was almost completely sold out and became a single triumphal procession - as were the countless shows at the summer festivals, which completely captivated the audience thanks to the (un) holy masses of the wolf. In 2020, the Best Of album ‘Best Of The Blessed’ climbed to # 2 in the German charts, and in 2021, with the new studio album ‘Call Of The Wild’ and the “Wolfsnächte” 2021 tour through the largest halls in Europe, an entire year is dedicated to the wolf pack.
