Powerwolf - "Dancing With The Dead" (video)

Ο δίσκος των Powerwolf "Call of the Wild"
Long ago in a time of twilight
Seven sins, seven hearts on strife
Lost her way in a storm of rivals
Stay safe at night, come home alive

Years ago in a dome at midnight
Innocent and immaculate
Fold her hands on the holy altar
A masquerade, all out of fate

And on her way to hell
Betrayed her Christ

Then she went dancing with the dead
Lost the lord and the spiritus sanctus, raving
Dancing with the dead
Fell in love with the temper of twilight,
Lust and evil powers

Long ago on a tale of moonlight
Painted lines of the pentagram
Holy words all are long forgotten
The spell is cast, the dread is done

Hail the goat, to the night surrender
By the glow of the morning star
No way back from the night remember
All merciless and sinister

And on the way back home forsake the skies

Then she went dancing with the dead
Lost the lord and the spiritus sanctus, raving
Dancing with the dead
Fell in love with the temper of twilight,
Lust and evil powers

Dancing with the dead
Lost the lord and the spiritus sanctus, raving
Dancing with the dead
Fell in love with the temper of twilight,
Lust and evil powers

Long ago under skies of starlight
Read the words of the secret rhymes
Lost her soul to the darkened fire
We burn alive for all the time

We all are dancing with the dead
Lost our hearts to the spiritus sanctus, praying
Dancing with the dead
Fell in love with the temper of skylight,
God and lethal powers

Dancing with the dead
Lost our hearts to the spiritus sanctus, praying
Dancing with the dead
Fell in love with the temper of skylight,
God and lethal powers


"Call of the Wild" τιτλοφορείται το νέο δισκογραφικό πόνημα των Powerwolf. Πρόκειται για τον δέκατο "ολοκληρωμένο" στουντιακό δίσκο των Γερμανών metallers κι έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει στα μέσα του επόμενου μήνα...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Powerwolf - a name that makes the eyes of every disciple of traditional melodic heavy metal moist with joy and stands for a successful quintet that, after 15 years of steep ascent, basically needs no more extensive introduction.

Last year, the anniversary was celebrated with a best-of compilation, which united the highlights of the six studio discs released to date - including both long-running hits from the early works and more recent hits from the gold-awarded records "Blessed & Possessed" and "The Sacrament Of Sin", such as the platinum hit single "Demons Are A Girl's Best Friend" - under one roof.

Now, only about 12 months later, the probably most successful pack of the contemporary German metal fauna is ready with bared fangs for the next bloody foray. In the form of the programmatically titled "Call Of The Wild" work, which was once again a cooperation with the venerable producer duo Jens Bogren and Joost van den Broek in the Swedish Fascination Street Studios, will be out on July 16th, 2021, and mark a new chapter in the band's history.

The album will feature beloved classic trademarks that are ready to reach out to veteran and freshly recruited Powerwolf devotees alike, surprising and delighting them at every stage of this wild 11-track ride with stylistic advancements on an unprecedented scale!

"Faster Than The Flame" - an opening beat that ignites the bonfire in purest Powerwolf manner as a fiery distillation of such traditionally-fulminant album openers as "Amen & Attack" or "Fire & Forgive" - bears the distinctive signature of the creative minds around main songwriter Matthew Greywolf already in the first chords and impressively demonstrates, that the five-piece has undoubtedly succeeded in creating its very own, unmistakable sound over the course of the last one and a half decades.

From this bomb-proof basis, the wolves subsequently dare to take the lead with tracks like the outrageously catchy "Dancing With The Dead" (a future classic in every decent headbanger party playlist!), the wonderfully heretical "Glaubenskraft" or Attila Dorn's epic-emotional moment "Alive Or Undead" - a power ballad at its absolute best, which finally cements the reputation of the frontman as an absolute exceptional bard - to enter new musical territory every minute, in order to conquer it for themselves almost in the same breath and turn it into one big firework of fresh influences. Lyrically, “Call Of The Wild” (besides the usual tongue-in-cheek heresy à la "Undress To Confess") is the hour of the mythical scary characters, who would all have good cards in the fight for the rank of the official band mascot: While "Beast Of Gévaudan" tells at top speed the story of a legendary predator that spread fear and terror in southern France in the middle of the 18th century, the stomping "Varcolac" pays homage to the eponymous wolfish demon of Romanian folklore, before "Blood For Blood (Faoladh)" evokes the Irish relative of the moon worshiper known to us as "Werewolf" in front of a fitting sound backdrop.

In the final spurt, "Reverent Of Rats" puts a pompous exclamation mark behind a work that can justifiably be called the most multi-faceted of the band's history so far and which - beyond all promotional platitudes - plunges into the race as a hot contender for the top position among this year's metal releases!»
