Multinational metallers POWERWOLF recently filmed a video for the song “We Drink Your Blood”. The clip was shot in an ancient monastery church.
Commented POWERWOLF organist Falk Maria Schlegel: “Shooting the video in such a special and atmospheric place was incredible. The combination of the sacral interior of the church, including altar, confessional box and a church organ with a lot of fire, fog and metal insanity was the perfect set for a POWERWOLF video.”
The title “We Drink Your Blood” is an allusion to the congregation in the Christian liturgy: “Take this, all of you, and drink from it: this is the cup of my blood, the blood of the new and everlasting covenant.” In the very own style, the members of POWERWOLF have adapted this to a typical suggestive horror story.
Check out photos from the video shoot at this location.
“We Drink Your Blood” comes off POWERWOLF‘s fourth album, “Blood Of The Saints”, which will be released in Germany, Austria and Switzerland on July 29; and August 1 in the rest of Europe via Metal Blade Records in Europe. The CD will be made available as a regular CD, a limited-edition digibook 2-CD (exact content to be revealed shortly) and on vinyl. The cover art was created by POWERWOLF guitarist Matthew Greywolf.
Commented Greywolf: “We’re really excited about this album. It’s been a hard piece of work, but it was so goddamn worth it.
“I think on ‘Blood Of The Saints’ we really delivered a striking balance of mighty melodic stuff and some serious wolfish metal madness, all dressed up in some highly catchy tunes.
“We can hardly wait until the album is finally out and we can celebrate these tunes together with all of you. Be prepared!”
