Korpiklaani have released a cover of Powerwolf’s “Where The Wild Wolves Have Gone.” Korpiklaani’s version of the track is titled “Sudenmorsian” and a lyric video for it can be found below.
“Sudenmorsian (The Wolf’s Bride) tells the story of loneliness and lycanthropy. At the beginning, a man walks with his bride, they are inseparable, but when the summer’s nightless night steps aside and darkness comes, man runs as a wolf for the first time. He knows if he gives all of himself to nature and lives as a wolf, he has to live alone.
When we were asked by Powerwolf to do a cover of one of their songs, we immediately agreed and wanted to do something a little different and special. Once again Tuomas Keskimäki did his magic and adapted the lyrics into Finnish and made a fitting powerful tale. Of all the covers we have done over the years, this is the one we are really proud of and we hope everyone enjoys this as much as we do.”
My Dying Bride will be releasing a new EP titled “Macabre Cabaret” on November 20. The effort will feature three songs including the title track, “A Secret Kiss,” and “A Purse Of Gold And Stars.” Physical copies will also come with an additional “hidden gem.” A lyric video for the first single “A Secret Kiss” can be found below:
Aaron Stainthorpe said the following about the new songs:
“‘Macabre Cabaret’ delves into the shadow empire of dark love and the consequences of unchecked sexuality. The deep passion of physical desire and its all-conquering rage over pure love is written bleakly here. A destructive essence within the soul can’t help but rear its ugly head.
‘A Secret Kiss’ is the final and lasting mark on the soul any human will feel when the lights have dulled and nothing meaningful remains for them. All religion features a shadow creature who arrives at the point of extinction and the release of the human soul, to either guide them to majesty or allow them do fall eternally into the ether.
‘A Purse Of Gold And Stars’ is where we keep our hopes and desires and affection, perhaps in a dreamlike state, unattainable yet we still reach out for them. The trinkets and shiny baubles we call happiness and love are what we try so hard to keep close and protect. But it is never quite like that in real life and is often a struggle tainted with sadness but still, we hold the purse close and in tight cold hands.”
Alekhine’s Gun, the band featuring “Orange Is The New Black” actress Jessica Pimentel, have premiered a new song titled “Ngepar Chiwa.” This track will appear on the group’s upcoming EP “Year Of The Lazerus.”
The group told Revolver the following:
“Death is the one common denominator that pervades all existence. As most of us get bogged down with all the worldly goals, desires and fears of human life, how often do we sit and contemplate our own Death? In Tibetan Buddhism we focus, meditate on and practice our own death on a daily basis. Nothing in this world is yours. Even your own body will betray you. At the moment of death you will lose everything. This moment can come at any time. Constantly reminding yourself of your impermanence causes a radical shift in one’s mind stream freeing you from attachments, hatred, greed and fear which cause daily suffering and helps you reevaluate what is truly important. By becoming friends with death we are able to live a more perfect life. By eliminating the fear of the unknown we can have a peaceful death, which not only benefits ourselves by helping us to easily reach our next plane of existence properly but helps ease the minds and suffering that we cause by our departure from those who love us.”
Sodom have premiered a new song titled “Sodom & Gomorrah.” This track is from the band’s new album “Genesis XIX,“ which will be released on November 27.
Evildead have premiered a new song titled “The Descending.” This track is from the band’s new album “United $tate$ Of Anarchy,” which will be released on October 30.
Hollywood Undead have premiered a new song titled “Coming Home.” This track will appear on the band’s upcoming album “New Empire, Vol. 2.” Johnny 3 Tears commented:
“Coming Home is about getting carried away in the tides of life, but knowing even through that solitude that the ones who love us are always waiting for us on the shore.”
Black Stone Cherry have premiered a new song titled “Ringin’ In My Head.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Human Condition,” which will be released on October 30. The group commented:
“‘Ringin’ In My Head’ was a song we had originally started to write back in 2017, and for whatever reason, it didn’t make the album at the time, but we loved the riff and melody. Fast forward to 2020, we were in the studio recording ‘The Human Condition’ and we decided to revisit the song and rework it a bit. It’s eerie that it fits into the current state of the world so well right now. It’s almost like the song knew when it should have been recorded and released, and we find beauty in that.”
Skillet have premiered a lyric video for their song “Dead Man Walking.” This track is from the recently released deluxe edition of their latest album “Victorious.” That version of the effort, which is titled “Victorious: The Aftermath,” features eight bonus tracks.

“One word, ‘disruption.’ You have to put power into the hands of the people, not business, you have to value people and community over profit. You can’t have a shareholder-run country or a shareholder-run world, a world that values profit above all else, because profit above all else can result in dangerous repercussions for humankind.”
Six Feet Under have premiered a new song titled “Zodiac.” This track is from the band’s new album “Nightmares Of The Decomposed,“ which will be released on October 2.
