Powerwolf is back with a new single called "Beast Of Gévaudan" and it's as powerful as the band has ever been. The single takes listeners into the depths of historical France
"We are more than proud to present 'Beast of Gévaudan', the first song off our upcoming album, Call Of The Wild," said guitarist Matthews Greywolf. "The story behind the song couldn't fit better into the world of Powerwolf: It's about a mysterious beast that killed countless people in the south of France at the end of the 18th century.
"The beast was never caught and there have always been many legends surrounding the events, up to the interpretation of the clergy, who saw the beast as 'God's punishment' or even as a 'savior of mankind from the worldly and sinful existence.'"
Call Of The Wild is out July 16, and pre-orders are available here. Various formatsof the new album include the bonus album Missa Cantorem – a cross-section of the Powerwolf's success story with newly recorded vocals by friends and companions of the band.
