This Friday, July 16 2021, the high priests of heavy metal – Powerwolf – will continue their unique success story and release their long awaited new studio album ‘Call Of The Wild’!
Matthew Kiichi Heafy (Trivium), friend and fan of Powerwolf, has recorded an impressive version of the song “Fist By Fist (Sacralize Or Strike).” This exciting version of the rousing track seamlessly follows the class of the original and will not only set the scene in excitement, but underlines Powerwolf’s international power of impact once again with this top-class feature.
The song will be featured on the exclusive bonus album ‘Missa Cantorem,’ which will be included in various ‘Call Of The Wild’ formats. A simultaneously exciting and entertaining journey through the band’s success story, sung by friends and companions of Powerwolf.
Matthew Kiichi Heafy states:
“It is a tremendous honor to be able to do my rendition of the fantastic ‚Fist By Fist‘ by the mighty Powerwolf. Powerwolf has been one of my favorite bands for ages, so this is a privilege of the highest caliber.”

Once again created in cooperation with the honorable producer duo of Jens Bogren and Joost van den Broek, the masterpiece will open a new chapter in the band’s history on July 16, 2021. The eighth studio album will serve both old and newly recruited POWERWOLF devotees with well-known classic trademarks, and equally surprise and delight them at every stage of this wild 11-track ride!
Matthew Greywolf on Call Of The Wild:
“With Call Of The Wild, we are opening a new, exciting chapter in the history of POWERWOLF. The album sounds unmistakably like POWERWOLF and is so much more at the same time: Besides new territory like the Celtic instrumentation in “Blood for Blood (Faoladh)” or the ballad-like “Alive or Undead”, we have raised all our trademarks to a new level. Until now, we never sounded so powerful and wild – in the truest sense of the word. We can’t wait to finally share this beast of an album with you all!”
