Statement of the band about the new recorded version:

“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. 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!”

The story of Powerwolf, beginning in 2004, reads like a true fairyland, but is the result of one of the most hard-working and entertaining live bands on the heavy metal planet. Powerwolf has not only received plenty of Gold and Platinum awards to date, numerous releases have entered the official album charts at the pole position #1. With Blessed & Possessed (2015), Powerwolf achieved Gold status for the first time and stayed at the Top of the charts for more than nine weeks, while the predecessor, Preachers Of The Night(2013) – as well as the incredible DVD, The Metal Mass (2016) – hit the official German album charts at #1. Powerwolf’s holy mass in the name of heavy metal is unstoppable, their latest magnum opus, The Sacrament of Sin (2018), again entered the album charts at #1. The accompanying Wolfsnächte tour, in which Powerwolf headlined large venues with their phenomenal stage performances, became a single major triumph – as well as the numerous summer festival shows in which the crowds were thrilled and completely captivated by the ‘wolf and their unique, (un)holy metal mass!
