They are the ultimate high priests of heavy metal, and 2019 marked their 15th band anniversary: Without a doubt, POWERWOLF are one of the most successful heavy metal bands of modern times, and their triumphant history must be celebrated in glorious style! Just recently, POWERWOLF announced the release of a very special album, Best Of The Blessed, slated to see the light of day on July 3, 2020 via Napalm Records. But, Best Of The Blessed isn’t just another Best Of album. Featuring 16 metal anthems and timeless classics by the band shrouded in a brand new shape, this record will include several new versions of hits such as “We Drink Your Blood”, “Werewolves of Armenia”, “Sanctified with Dynamite”, or the most celebrated festival hymn of all time, “Resurrection by Erection”.
And while speaking of live: If you cannot get enough of POWERWOLF’s captivating stage performances, this must-have magnum opus will also include 14 live tracks; the available Earbook and LP Box Edition will give you even more of POWERWOLF’s incredible live sound!
Today, following a recent first appetizer with the iconic track “Kiss of the Cobra King” (watch the video for the 2019- version HERE), POWERWOLF have released a video for the brand new version of the all-time classic, “Werewolves of Armenia”! The essential psalm, cut from the Bible of the Beast, POWERWOLF’s pathbreaking 2009 album, has not only become one of the ultimate heavy metal hymns of modern times, but in celebration of the band’s 15th anniversary, POWERWOLF have re-arranged and re-mastered this epic, thunderous hit in glorious style, to create a new, majestic soundtrack!
“We are proud to share this newly recorded version of “Werewolves of Armenia” with you all. “Werewolves of Armenia” has become one of the most popular songs in our live shows ever since its release on Bible of the Beast in 2009,” the band comments. “Over the years we have slightly developed the song further and further in countless live shows, and this new version, to us, has this extra kick and power this song gained over the years. It feels pretty close to how this song works in the live situation with all of you singing and partying along. Hope this new version can give you all some wolfish power in these hard times!”
