Korpiklaani Premiere “Sudenmorsian” Lyric Video

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.

Korpiklaani commented:

“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.”

“We are proud to share this newly recorded version of ‘Werewolves Of Armenia’ with you all. ‘Werewolves Of Armenia’ has become one of the most popular songs in our live shows ever since its release on Bible of the Beast in 2009. Over the years we have slightly developed the song further and further in countless live shows, and this new version, to us, has this extra kick and power this song gained over the years. It feels pretty close to how this song works in the live situation with all of you singing and partying along. Hope this new version can give you all some wolfish power in these hard times!”

Powerwolf Premiere Music Video For New Version Of “Kiss Of The Cobra King”

Powerwolf have premiered a new video for the 2019 edition of “Kiss Of The Cobra King.” This version of the track was released to commemorate the band’s 15th anniversary and it can be purchased in various formats HERE.

The group commented:

“To celebrate the packs 15th birthday, we decided to realize an idea that had been around for many years – it felt like now was the right time for it to be realized. As a birthday present to ourselves and all the legions of PW-maniacs out there, we have re-written the ‘Return In Bloodred’-classic ‘Kiss Of The Cobra Kin’.”

Matthew Greywolf added:

“This song has been one of our faves ever since and it was a fun experience to transform this song into how it would sound if it were a song written by Powerwolf in 2019. In fact, it has become a totally new song and we absolutely love it. The writing and recording-session for this one was truly special to us, as there was no album context, no huge framework, just a loose idea and the freedom to let it happen. And since a special recording deserves a special visualization, we went all the way and shot an amazingly weird video-clip – enjoy!“
