Powerwolf Finishes Shooting New Music Video For "We Drink Your Blood"

Multinational heavy metal act Powerwolf recently finished shooting a video clip for the song "We Drink Your Blood" from the band's upcoming album "Blood Of The Saints."

According to the band's sacral image and 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!"

The song title "We Drink Your Blood" is an allusion to the congregation in the Christian liturgy "Take this, all of you, and drink from it: this is the cup of my blood, the blood of the new and everlasting covenant."

To give you a first glimpse about things to come, Powerwolf has revealed some making-of photography on the band's website here. "Blood Of The Saints" will be released July 29th/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 guitarist Matthew Greywolf comments on the release of Blood Of The Saints: "We're really excited about this album. It's been a hard piece of work, but it was so goddamn worth it. I think on Blood Of The Saints we delivered a striking balance of mighty melodic stuff and some serious wolfish metal madness, all dressed up in some highly catchy tunes. We can hardly wait until the album is finally out and we can celebrate these tunes together with all of you - Be prepared!"

The track listing is as follows:

1. Agnus Dei (Intro)
2. Sanctified with Dynamite
3. We Drink Your Blood
4. Murder At Midnight
5. All We Need is Blood
6. Dead Boys Don't Cry
7. Son of a Wolf
8. Night of the Werewolves
9. Phantom of the Funeral
10. Die, Die, Crucified
11. Ira Sancti (When the saints are going wild)

great news. i can't wait for song samples and a video for the new music. i bought their first two cd's, but never their third, because i couldn't find it for a reasonable price here in the u.s.a. here's hoping the new cd will be available domestically for a reasonable price.
