In 2021, the high priests of heavy metal – POWERWOLF – have continued their impressive incomparable story! With their latest successful and critically acclaimed studio album Call Of The Wild, they make history once again. The single “Dancing With The Dead” reached gold status only a few days after release and the studio album is crowned by streams in double figured millions.
Now, due to the current pandemic circumstances POWERWOLF have to postpone their headlining tour through Europe announced for 2021, to 2022. The Wolfsnächte 2022 headline tour will lead through Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, UK, the Netherlands and Belgium in November and December!
To shorten the waiting time, POWERWOLF are now happy to announce the top-class support acts for the upcoming tour: The British power metallers DRAGONFORCE and the heavy metal warriors WARKINGS will make the crowd shake!
“Dear friends, we fought until the last breath and tried ALL possible options to see all of you again, but unfortunately we have to postpone our “Wolfsnächte” tour due to the ongoing pandemic and decisions far beyond our control! Words cannot describe the feeling of not being able to meet you all again, we truly miss to celebrate with you!
But let’s focus on better times: We are excited to announce two great special guests with DRAGONFORCE and WARKINGS to join us next year! Together we will celebrate the holy metal mass wilder than ever! All tickets will remain valid for the dates in 2022! See you there and stay safe, your wolves!”
DRAGFONFORCE’s Herman Li adds:
“We love POWERWOLF! Their music is awesome and super fun at the same time, just the way we like it. We can’t wait for the tour!”
The Tribune of the mighty WARKINGS:
“When wolves, dragons and kings unite for glorious battles all over Europe no warrior and no shieldmaiden can stay away from the battlefields. Join us on our crusade with our brothers in POWERWOLF and DRAGONFORCE!”

Watch the success video for “Dancing With The Dead” and the stunning 2019 tour recap video here:
Once again created in cooperation with the honorable producer duo of Jens Bogren and Joost van den Broek, POWERWOLF’s new album Call Of The Wild opened a new chapter in the band’s history on July 16 2021. The eighth studio album serves both old and newly recruited POWERWOLF devotees with well-known and loved classic trademarks, and equally surprise and delight them at every stage of this wild 11-track ride with stylistic developments on an unprecedented scale!
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!”
Call Of The Wild tracklisting:
01. Faster Than the Flame
02. Beast of Gévaudan
03. Dancing with the Dead
05. Alive or Undead
06. Blood for Blood (Faoladh)
08. Call of the Wild
09. Sermon of Swords
10. Undress to Confess
11. Reverent of Rats
The story of POWERWOLF, beginning in 2004, reads like a true fairytale, but is the result of the most hard-working and entertaining live band on the heavy metal planet. POWERWOLF has not only received plenty of Gold and Platinum awards to date, but numerous releases have entered the official German album charts at the top position of #1. With Blessed & Possessed (2015), POWERWOLF achieved Gold status (in the Czech Republic) for the first time, while its predecessor, Preachers Of The Night (2013), hit the official German album charts at #1, and the incredible DVD, The Metal Mass (2016), came in at #1 of the German DVD-Charts. 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, almost completely sold out Wolfsnächte headline 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 crowds were thrilled and completely captivated by the wolves and their unique, (un)holy metal mass. With the new studio album, Call Of The Wild, and the upcoming tour charging through the largest halls in Europe, the whole world is completely under the sign of the wolf pack once again!
