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."

"Stefane Funebre will have to focus on his increasing religious duties in the future and will therefore no longer be able to join the wolves on their crusade.

As the new member of the wolfpack we welcome Tom Diener, who will take place on the holy drum seat in the future. Tom already toured with us as temporary replacement for Funebre during the last 12 months and in the meantime has become a true member of the pack and a master of the ceremony. Be sure he will unleash some great metal madness with us in the future."

Powerwolf has issued the following statement about working with a classical music conservatory while recording their new album:
"Holy heavens. We spent two days at the Musikhochschule Saarbrücken, a conservatory for classical music. And no - not as bad examples of misguided musicians. We recorded choir arrangements with a choir of 25 men and women, most of them students or graduates of the conservatory. We already did choir stuff on three songs on "Lupus dei", but this time we developed things further and bigger: 8 of the new songs got majestic choir arrangements, written by maestro Francesco Cottone. And we can tell you - it´s pure shivers down your spine when 25 classical singers cantillate Powerwolf anthems! We were speechless. Our gratitude goes to the brave choir women and men, who took all the time and dedication, feared neither the devil nor the loss of their good reputation collaborating with the wolves, and did a damn great job."
