The return of the wolves – wilder than ever!
Today, the wait is finally over – the new POWERWOLF record, Call Of The Wild, is out! Call Of The Wild, the follow-up to their 2018 #1-charting and gold-award winning 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.
Along with the new album they also dropped a new lyric video: peppered with gripping riffs, POWERWOLF once again showcase their musical variety. “Blood For Blood (Faoladh)” is another anthemic, powerful song, which will not only inspire fans, but also excite live audiences.
Once again created in cooperation with the honorable producer duo of Jens Bogren and Joost van den Broek, the masterpiece is opening a new chapter in the band’s history. The eighth studio album serves both old and newly recruited POWERWOLF devotees with well-known and loved classic trademarks, and equally surprise and delight them at every stage of this wild 11-track ride with stylistic developments on an unprecedented scale!
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 are more than happy to be able to share this beast of an album with you all!”

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 of #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 wolves 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!
