2021 is once again completely under the spell of the wolves: With the announcement of their new studio album, “Call Of The Wild”, POWERWOLF, the high priest of heavy metal, have turned the heads of fans and critics internationally and hereby seamlessly continue on their unique success story.
The second single from the upcoming album is entitled ‘Dancing With The Dead’, and underlines POWERWOLF‘s indispensable skill for pure, bloody heavy metal and hooks that will stay in your head forever.

Featuring Attila‘s gripping vocals and irresistible riffs, the accompanying cinematic music video takes the viewer back to the past and once again showcases POWERWOLF‘s visual strength. The video comes as a cinematic short film and stages a wild dance with the dead.
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 16th July 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 said about “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. Pre-order your copy HERE.
