Powerwolf Posts "We Drink Your Blood" Video

Powerwolf recently finished shooting a video clip for the song "We Drink Your Blood" from the upcoming album "Blood Of The Saints." The video clip can now be viewed below or through Metal Hammer Germany.

According to the concept of "Blood Of The Saints," Powerwolf shot the video in an ancient monastery church. “Shooting the video in such a special and atmospheric place was incredible,” comments organist Falk Maria Schlegel. “The combination of the sacral interior of the church, including altar, confessional box and a church organ with a lot of fire, fog and metal insanity was the perfect set for a Powerwolf video!”

"Blood Of The Saints" will be released July 29th (G/A/S) / August 1st via Metal Blade Records in Europe. The album will be released as a regular CD, a limited edition Digibook 2-CD and on vinyl.

Powerwolf To Enter The Studio

Powerwolf has issued the following announcement about entering the studio to record a new album:

"The wolves are currently busy writing the follow up album to 'Bible of the beast.' We spent the last three months in the rehersal room working out stuff for the new album. Even though it's still in the making we can already promise the songs are 100% Powerwolf, taking off where 'Bible of the beast' ended - there's furious stuff, there's epic stuff - and all of it is catchy as hell.

"For the production we're going to team up with exactly the same crew as for 'Bible of the beast:' Kohlekeller Studios for the recordings, any chapel we can haunt for organ and choir celebrations - and of course Studio Fredman and Fredric Nordström for mix. The pack will invade studio in December and the recording process will last until February. Expect a tentative release midyear 2011. More details and updates will follow as we find a minute to draw a few lines."
