Info for Call Of The Wild (Deluxe Version)



POWERWOLF - a name that fills every disciple of traditional melodic heavy metal with joy and stands for a successful quintet that needs no more introduction after 15 years of steep ascent. The anniversary was celebrated with a best-of release in 2020, which united the highlights of all six studio albums released to date - including both long-running hits from early works, and more recent hits from the gold-awarded records Blessed & Possessed and The Sacrament Of Sin, such as the platinum hit single “Demons Are A Girl's Best Friend”. Now, only about 12 months later, arguably the most successful pack of the contemporary German metal fauna is ready with bared fangs for the next bloody foray. The aptly titled Call Of The Wild, which was once again crafted by the venerable production duo of Jens Bogren and Joost van den Broek at Swedish Fascination Street Studios, will be unleashed on July 16, 2021! A new chapter in the band's history will be opened, serving up beloved classic trademarks to long time and newly recruited POWERWOLF devotees alike. Call Of The Wild is surprising and delighting at every stage of this wild 11-track ride, with stylistic advancements on an unprecedented scale! “Faster Than The Flame” - an opening blast that ignites the bonfire in purest POWERWOLF manner as a fiery distillation of such fulminant album openers as “Amen & Attack” or “Fire & Forgive” - bears the distinctive signature of the creative minds around main songwriter Matthew Greywolf even in the first chords, and impressively demonstrates that the five-piece has undoubtedly succeeded in creating its very own, unmistakable sound over the course of the last one and a half decades.

From this bomb-proof base, the wolves subsequently dare to take the stage with tracks like the outrageously catchy “Dancing With The Dead” (a future classic on every decent headbanger party playlist!), the wonderfully heretical “Glaubenskraft” and Attila Dorn's epic-emotional magic moment on “Alive Or Undead” - a power ballad on the highest level that finally cements the reputation of the frontman as an absolute exceptional bard!

POWERWOLF enters new musical territory every minute, conquering it for themselves in almost the same second and turning it into one big firework of fresh influences. Lyrically – aside from the usual tongue-in-cheek heresy à la “Undress To Confess” – Call Of The Wild is the hour of mythical scary characters, who would all have good cards in the fight for the rank of official band mascot: While “Beast Of Gévaudan” tells the story of a legendary predator that spread fear and terror in southern France in the middle of the 18th century at top speed, the stomping “Varcolac” pays homage to the eponymous wolfish demon of Romanian folklore, before “Blood For Blood (Faoladh)” evokes the Irish relative of the moon worshiper known to us as "Werewolf" in front of a fitting sound backdrop. Finally, the final offering “Reverent Of Rats” puts a pompous exclamation mark behind a work that can rightfully be called the most multi-faceted in the band's history so far and which – beyond all promotional platitudes – is a hot contender for the top position among this year's metal releases!

"Overall, “Call of the Wild” retakes the characteristic elements of the Heavy Metal Mass and preaches them in a better, wilder, and more epic way. While introducing some surprises, the listener will maintain attentive to the sermon’s message, a homily full of memorable choruses, countless melodic hooks, and ferocious riffs that will haunt the thirsty hordes around the world for more Powerwolf."

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 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!
