A video for the effort’s first single, “The Final Lullaby” (feat. Shining), can be found below. Bassist Rob Van Der Loo said the following about that track:

“I’ve been a big fan of Shining since the first time I heard them. Our intention with ‘The Final Lullaby’ was to make a mash-up between Epica and Shining so we thought it would be a good idea if I would come up with some riffs that would be typical Shining and they would do the complete opposite.”

Powerwolf Premiere New Song “Sainted By The Storm”

Powerwolf have premiered a new song titled “Sainted By The Storm.” The single is available digitally and on CD along with orchestral and instrumental versions of the track. The band commented:

“We would like to thank you all for your fantastic support with the release of a brand new song! It’s been less than a year since we released our new album, ‘Call Of The Wild’, and it’s rather unusual for us to follow up so soon, but we miss you all and were overwhelmed by your comments and feedback not only on the last album but also on our streaming event ‘The Monumental Mass’, despite the lack of live shows and the opportunity to see each other again and celebrate a furious metal mass together! Enjoy ‘Sainted By The Storm’. This one is for you, wolves!”

“Dear friends, we fought until the last breath and tried ALL possible options to see all of you again, but unfortunately we have to postpone our “Wolfsnächte” tour due to the ongoing pandemic and decisions far beyond our control! Words cannot describe the feeling of not being able to meet you all again, we truly miss to celebrate with you!

But let’s focus on better times: We are excited to announce two great special guests with Dragonforce and Warkings to join us next year! Together we will celebrate the holy metal mass wilder than ever! All tickets will remain valid for the dates in 2022! See you there and stay safe, your wolves!”
