Months before the entire world had been shaken to the core by the still raging Covid-19 pandemic, Heavy metal’s finest, POWERWOLF, had gone back to the drawing board to work on ideas for the successor of their globally acclaimed album, The Sacrament Of Sin(2018).
Today, the band issued an update about the ongoing songwriting sessions.
“It‘s been an intense and wild ride in these troubled times, but no moonless night can hold back the wolves from hunting & howling: As of now, we have finished the songwriting and pre-production for the upcoming album and we‘re quite sure of having crafted a wild and adventurous piece of wolfish metal music, with plenty of tunes eagerly howling to be celebrated together with you all!
Attila and Matthew have just recorded the last bits of the demos and we can hardly hold back our enthusiasm about the new stuff.
We will enter the studio starting in December, once again teaming up with both Joost van den Broek and Jens Bogren to carve this wolfish manifest in stone.
Expect the album to be released in summer 2021.”
More details to be revealed soon.
Just recently, POWERWOLF released an extensive best of album, Best of the Blessed, which entered the German Charts on position #2.
The story of POWERWOLF, beginning in 2004, reads like a true fairytale, but is the result of one of the most hard-working and entertaining live bands on the heavy metal planet. POWERWOLF has not only received plenty of Gold and Platinum awards to date, numerous releases have entered the official album charts at the pole position #1. With Blessed & Possessed (2015), POWERWOLF achieved Gold status for the first time, while the predecessor, Preachers Of The Night (2013) – as well as the incredible DVD, The Metal Mass (2016) – hit the official German album charts at #1. POWERWOLF‘s holy mass in the name of heavy metal is unstoppable, their latest magnum opus, The Sacrament of Sin (2018), again entered the album charts at #1. The accompanying Wolfsnächte tour, in which POWERWOLF headlined large venues with their phenomenal stage performances, became a single major triumph – as well as the numerous summer festival shows in which the crowds were thrilled and completely captivated by the ‘wolf and their unique, (un)holy metal mass!
