The return of the wolves – wilder than ever!


This Friday, July 16 2021, the high priests of heavy metal – POWERWOLF – will continue their unique success story and release their long awaited new studio album Call Of The Wild!


Matthew Kiichi Heafy (TRIVIUM), friend and fan of POWERWOLF, has recorded an impressive version of the song “Fist By Fist (Sacralize Or Strike)”. This exciting version of the rousing track seamlessly follows the class of the original and will not only set the scene in excitement, but underlines POWERWOLF‘s international power of impact once again with this top-class feature.


The song will be featured on the exclusive bonus album Missa Cantorem, which will be included in various Call Of The Wild formats. A simultaneously exciting and entertaining journey through the band’s success story, sung by friends and companions of POWERWOLF.


Matthew Kiichi Heafy states:
“It is a tremendous honor to be able to do my rendition of the fantastic ‚Fist By Fist‘ by the mighty POWERWOLFPOWERWOLF has been one of my favorite bands for ages, so this is a privilege of the highest caliber.”

Once again created in cooperation with the honorable producer duo of Jens Bogren and Joost van den Broek, the masterpiece will open a new chapter in the band’s history on July 16, 2021. The eighth studio album will serve both old and newly recruited POWERWOLF devotees with well-known classic trademarks, and equally surprise and delight them at every stage of this wild 11-track ride!


Matthew Greywolf on 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 is so much more at the same time: Besides new territory like the Celtic instrumentation in “Blood for Blood (Faoladh)” or the ballad-like “Alive or Undead”, we have raised all our trademarks to a new level. Until now, we never sounded so powerful and wild – in the truest sense of the word. We can’t wait to finally share this beast of an album with you all!”



Call Of The Wild, the follow-up to their 2018 #1-charting studio album Sacrament Of Sin, manifests the band’s inimitable success story and proves once again that they sit unchallenged on the throne of the genre.

ABOUT POWERWOLF:
The story of POWERWOLF, beginning in 2004, reads like a true fairytale, but is the result of the most hard-working and entertaining live band on the heavy metal planet. POWERWOLF has not only received plenty of Gold and Platinum awards to date, but numerous releases have entered the official German album charts at the top position #1. With Blessed & Possessed (2015), POWERWOLF achieved Gold status (in the Czech Republic) for the first time, while its predecessor, Preachers Of The Night (2013), hit the official German album charts at #1, and the incredible DVD, The Metal Mass (2016), came in at #1 of the German DVD-Charts. 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, almost completely sold out Wolfsnächte headline 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 crowds were thrilled and completely captivated by the ‘wolf and their unique, (un)holy metal mass. With the new studio album, Call Of The Wild, and the Wolfsnächte 2021 tour charging through the largest halls in Europe, 2021 will again be a year completely under the sign of the wolf pack!

Attila Dorn – vocals
Falk Maria Schlegel – organ
Charles Greywolf – guitar
