Multinational Heavy Metallers POWERWOLF have announced details about the bonus content off their upcoming new album Blood Of The Saints which will be released as a limited Digibook edition including a bonus disc. Additionally a regular jewelcase cd (without bonus disc) will be available as well as a gatefold-LP!
For the bonus CD the wolves realized a special project. In cooperation with the Russian score composer Dominic G. Joutsen they elaborated a classical orchestra piece based on five POWERWOLF songs, entitled “The sacrilege symphony (and still the orchestra prays)“.
“This was a very special and challenging project” comments Matthew Greywolf. “Working with a classical composer demands a whole different approach to your own music. And the result is simply stunning”.
Attila Dorn completed the orchestra versions with a classical vocal performace. “It was a long-kept dream of mine to perform some of my favourite Powerwolf songs as classical versions and I think it offers a very sophisticated yet haunting vision of Powerwolf’s music” reports Attila.

POWERWOLF guitarist Matthew Greywolf comments on the release of ‘Blood Of The Saints’: “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!”
