+ Unleash Video to Celebrate 15th Band Anniversary!
Preaching the Metal Mass Live – Catch POWERWOLF on Tour this Fall!
2019 marks the 15th anniversary of Germany’s most successful heavy metal band: 15 years of POWERWOLF, 15 years of the one and only metal mass! The ultimate high priests of heavy metal will celebrate their triumphant story and band anniversary in glorious style. As a gift to their loyal fanbase all over the globe, POWERWOLF have just unleashed a blistering, brand new version of their timeless classic, the hit single Kiss of the Cobra King! Taken from the band’s groundbreaking debut album, Return in Bloodred, POWERWOLF re-wrote this anthem of a track to give it an absolutely new and refreshed vibe like you have never heard the song before. A brand new video for Kiss of the Cobra King anno 2019 has just been released HERE!
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 King”.” Matthew Greywolf comments. “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!”
The brand new version of Kiss of the Cobra King is now available as CD Single, a 7” Single Picture Vinyl (only available on EMP) as well as in Digital Formats. Celebrate 15 years with POWERWOLF, and purchase the track right HERE!
The story of POWERWOLF, beginning in 2004, reads like a true fairytale, but is the result of one of the most hard working and entertaining live bands on the heavy metal planet. POWERWOLF has not only received plenty of Gold and Platinum awards to date, numerous releases have entered the official album charts at the pole position #1. With Blessed & Possessed (2015), POWERWOLF achieved Gold status for the first time and stayed at the Top of the charts for more than nine weeks, while the predecessor, Preachers Of The Night (2013) – as well as the incredible DVD, The Metal Mass (2016) – hit the official German album charts at #1. POWERWOLF‘s holy mass in the name of heavy metal is unstoppable, their latest magnum opus, The Sacrament of Sin (2018), again entered the album charts at #1. The accompanying Wolfsnächte tour, in which POWERWOLF headlined large venues with their phenomenal stage performances, became a single major triumph – as well as the numerous summer festival shows in which the crowds were thrilled and completely captivated by the ‘wolf. POWERWOLF prove that metal is more than just great music, it’s religion.
Just recently, even a boardgame has been dedicated to the wolfpack. Play a POWERWOLF in an adventurous battle against the Strigoi, and find out more about the ‘Armata Strigoi’ game HERE!
