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 priests of heavy metal, have turned the heads of fans and critics internationally and hereby seamlessly continue on their unique success story.
Along with a powerful video starring Alissa White-Gluz of Arch Enemy and Falk Maria Schlegel, they are more than ready to present a brand new version of their hit single ‘Demons Are A Girl’s Best Friend’. With the original version of the thrilling track already reaching over 50 million streams across platforms, the exciting new version will set the international heavy metal world on fire.
‘Demons Are A Girl’s Best Friend’ feat. Alissa White-Gluz will be part of the bonus album Missa Cantorem, included with various special formats of Call Of The Wild.
Alissa White-Gluz on the new single: “I enjoyed putting a woman’s spin on ‘Demons Are A Girl’s Best Friend’; altering the lyrics to fit a strong message of female empowerment and delivering them with a mighty roar! Thanks to POWERWOLF for being open to having their song reconstructed like this!”
Falk Maria Schlegel on the video and the collaboration with Alissa White-Gluz: “It was a pleasure to work and perform together with Alissa for the very first time on our joint video shoot for ‘Demons Are A Girl’s Best Friend’. Immediately, there was a great energetic atmosphere on set! Alissa is such a wonderful artist and interacting with her during this shoot as well as re-interpreting this video together was an amazing experience.”
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 comments 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!”
The first music video, ‘Beast Of Gévaudan’, taken from the new album, has already surpassed one million views on YouTube. Watch the grandiose video again here: https://youtu.be/po-u-V6GiEk
