Multinational Heavy Metal warlords POWERWOLF recently finished shooting a video clip for the song We Drink Your Blood from their upcoming album Blood Of The Saints!
According to their sacral image and the concept of Blood Of The Saints, POWERWOLF shot the video in an ancient monastery church. “Shooting the video in such a special and atmospheric place was incredible”, comments organist Falk Maria Schlegel. “The combination of the sacral interior of the church, including altar, confessional box and a church organ with a lot of fire, fog and metal insanity was the perfect set for a POWERWOLF video!”
The song title We Drink Your Blood is an allusion to the congregation in the Christian liturgy ‘Take this, all of you, and drink from it: this is the cup of my blood, the blood of the new and everlasting covenant.’
In the very own style POWERWOLF have adapted this to a typical suggestive horror story. Be prepared for a stunning video to a great metal hymn!
To give you a first glimpse about things to come, POWERWOLF have revealed some making-of photography on www.powerwolf.net
Blood Of The Saints will be released July, 29 (G/A/S) / August, 1 via Metal Blade Records in Europe. The album will be released as a regular CD, a limited edition Digibook 2-CD and on vinyl.
The front art has been created by POWERWOLF guitarist Matthew Greywolf.
POWERWOLF guitarist Matthew Greywolf comments on the release of Blood Of The Saints: “We´re really excited about this album. It´s been a hard piece of work, but it was so goddamn worth it. I think on Blood Of The Saints we delivered a striking balance of mighty melodic stuff and some serious wolfish metal madness, all dressed up in some highly catchy tunes. We can hardly wait until the album is finally out and we can celebrate these tunes together with all of you – Be prepared!”
