FEUERSCHWANZ Unveils Cover Version of Assassin’s Creed Classic “Valhalla Calling”

Following FEUERSCHWANZ’s two recent #1 albums, Fegefeuer and Memento Mori (Official German Album Charts), Germany’s hottest band celebrates their 20th anniversary by releasing some of their biggest hits for the first time in English on the upcoming album, Warriors, out May 3, 2024! The tracklist is completed by one new original song and an impactful cover of the Assassin’s Creed classic “Valhalla Calling”, originally by Miracle of Sound, and now out as a single.

FEUERSCHWANZ is one of the biggest current bands in the German metal scene, which headline and premium slots at the most important rock and metal festivals are undeniable proof of. The band’s Fegefeuer European Headline Tour kicks off in Hamburg today and tomorrow, and several cities are already completely sold out. Grab your copy of Warriors while you still can and watch the official music video for “Valhalla Calling” below!


“As folk metal musicians, we always look for ancient melodies to put a heavy spin on – with “Valhalla Calling”, Gav @miracleofsound created a timeless, powerful and archaic viking anthem. We just couldn’t resist playing it in our style! Thank you @miracleofsound for this huge melody! We hope you like our tribute – check out the video premiere this Wednesday!”

Warriors looks back on a remarkable track record of tireless work and is further proof that FEUERSCHWANZ not only welcome challenges with open arms, but actively seek them out. Newly recorded – and for the first time ever in English – songs like “Highlander”, “Das Elfte Gebot” (The Forgotten Commandment), “Memento Mori”, “Untot im Drachenboot” (Death on the Dragonship), “Bastard of Asgard” and “Fegefeuer” (Purgatory) take on a whole new character, but still sound familiar in FEUERSCHWANZ style. The final track is a cover of the Assassin’s Creed classic “Valhalla Calling” by Miracle Of Sound, which fits perfectly into the overall work and discography of FEUERSCHWANZ. Warriors is a new milestone in FEUERSCHWANZ’s successful career, which only knows its way to the top!

Digital Album

Founded in 2004, FEUERSCHWANZ have evolved over the years from their roots in comedy medieval folk rock into a band to be taken seriously and are rightly regarded as one of the hottest acts on the scene. After they hit #1 in the Official German Album Charts for the first time with Memento Mori (2021), Germany’s hottest band managed to repeat that great success with their latest studio album Fegefeuer (2023). With premium slots at numerous festivals, such as co-headline slots at the legendary Wacken and Summer Breeze Open Airs, as well as abroad, including at Masters Of Rock and on the 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise in the Caribbean, and an almost completely sold-out headlining tour, FEUERSCHWANZ underlined their outstanding position all the more last year. Many dates of the upcoming big Fegefeuer headline tour in 2024 are already completely sold out.
