Powerwolf Streaming "Out In The Fields" Cover

The upcoming Powerwolf album "Blessed & Possessed" (reviewed here) will be released worldwide on July 17th via Napalm Records.

On top of that there's a ten track bonus tribute album titled "Metallum Nostrum" that features very special cover versions of classic anthems from metal giants including Judas Priest, Savatage, Black Sabbath, and Amon Amarth to name a few.

Today the wolves have released a brand new lyric video for the song "Out In The Fields" which is a cover of the Gary Moore track. Check it out below. Roel Van Helden commented on the song and lyric video:

"Like most of us, I began listening to metal when I was 11 years old. Later I discovered Thin Lizzy, who just like Iron Maiden - had a big influence on me. I still love to spin Gary Moore's records while having a good glass of wine. Also his blues phases were genius. For 'Out in the Fields' we made a few changes, for the musicians under us: The original track is played in 4/4 stroke, but we re-wrote it into 12/8. This way it became more metal. But a good song is functioning in any form."

The "Metallum Nostrum" disc is available with the 2-CD mediabook & all limited editions of "Blessed And Possessed." More...
