Comments POWERWOLF: “Feels great to feature our early works in the form of such a great boxset. Working on the book “The history of heresy” brought back so many great memories – and more than ever taught us to be grateful. Grateful for having such wonderful fans and such great supporters, without whom none of this would have happened. Still hard to believe we’re arround since 10 years now already, but releasing such a great package box is probably the best way to celebrate such an anniversary. Hope you all enjoy reading the book, while listening to the roots of Powerwolf – and we hope to see you all at Out & Loud Festival (www.outandloud.eu) on May 29th, where we’ll celebrate our 10th anniversary with a very special headliner show!”

POWERWOLF has spilled blood and sweat to finish the mix for the predecessor of Blood Of The Saints at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden. Get ready for a really monstrous masterpiece and expect more updates with regard to the upcoming album.
After the enormous success of the Wolfsnächte Tour in 2012, the wolves will conquer Europe again under the banner of Wolfsnächte Tour 2013 this year.
Tour dates (with MAJESTY, BATTLE BEAST, as well as ASHES OF ARES and WISDOM on select dates) include…
POWERWOLF issued an update with regard to their upcoming studio effort:
“It´s been mysteriously silent in the wolves´camp during the last few months. The reason for that is the best possible one: We have been more than busy writing the follow up album to ‘Blood of the Saints’. And after five intense months of blood, sweat and… even more blood, we can proudly tell you that most of the songwriting is done and there´s a truely monstrous piece of wolfish metal insanity on the way. There will be fast stuff, heavy stuff and epic stuff as well as some unholy little surprises – and all of that in the most typical, powerwolfish way you can imagine. Only 6 weeks to go until we enter the studio – can´t wait to bring these songs to life. Be prepared for some kind of studio diary whenever we find a minute in between the studio work.”
Napalm Records has announced that POWERWOLF has joined their ranks. The release date for the new and yet-untitled longplayer is tentatively scheduled for the summer of 2013.
Guitarist Mattew Greywolf states: “We’re blessed to have found a mighty and truely believing partner for crusades to come. Among all the labels we had been takling to, Napalm Records were the ones who stood out in means of faith, spirit and dedication to the wolves. We’re looking forward to spreading the word of metal together with them in the future. Be prepared!”
Markus Riedler, CEO Napalm Records says: “Captain Napalm, the mighty twin-headed eagle, and the wolves have joined forces in order to begin the crusade for the power metal throne. There is no doubt that the ultimate victory of the band cannot be stopped. We are very proud to build a great future together with Powerwolf. The album will be released in the summer of 2013 and the deafening howl of the wolves will make the competitors freeze with fear.”
On December 15th, the Wolves will share the stage with IN EXTREMO, HELLOWEEN and many more at the Knock Out Festival in Karlsruhe, Germany.
Powerwolf’s previous release “Blood Of The Saints” was released on August 2nd, 2011 by Metal Blade Records.
