31. March 2021
With the undeniable impact of their internationally successful releases, POWERWOLF have truly proven that heavy metal is alive and well, and that they occupy the throne of the genre unchallenged!
In 2021, the high priests of heavy metal will continue their inimitable success story: Following last year’s Best Of album (Best Of The Blessed – GER #2), the Gold and Platinum band now announce their upcoming studio album, Call Of The Wild, which will be released on July 9, 2021 via Napalm Records.
More details on the new album will follow soon.
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 #1.
With Blessed & Possessed (2015), POWERWOLF ac
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 ‘wolf and their unique, (un)holy metal mass.
With the new studio album, Call Of The Wild, and the Wolfsnächte 2021 tour charging through the largest halls in Europe, 2021 will again be a year completely under the sign of the wolf pack!

SATYRICON to Release Remixed & Remastered Editions of “Dark Medieval Times” & “The Shadowthrone”
29. March 2021
“These reissues are everything coming together. Finally!” (Satyr)
SATYRICON‘s first album, Dark Medieval Times, was released in the autumn of 1993 followed by its successor, The Shadowthrone, only eight months later. These pioneering pieces of art marked a start of a Black Metal evolution and have influenced the genre ever since. Both records will now be released as remixed and remastered reissues with altered cover artworks, on May 28, 2021 via Napalm Records.
When it comes to pivotal moments in the evolution of heavy music, the Norwegian black metal scene of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s takes some beating for sheer audacity and contrarian verve.
Most importantly, many of the records released during those tumultuous formative years have become established and undisputed classics in metal’s illustrious canon, and SATYRICON’s extraordinary early works must surely rank among the most revered of all.
Remixed and remastered Dark Medieval Times and The Shadowthrone will be available as a special limited deluxe box, as well as in 2 LP gatefold, CD digipack and digital album formats.
Dark Medieval Times was both instantly recognizable as the product of the thriving Norwegian scene and as something wholly distinctive within that superficially restrictive musical framework.
Even more remarkable was the fact that the entire record had been written and performed (with the exception of drums) by a then 17-year-old Sigurd ‘Satyr’ Wongraven: clearly a prodigious talent with an abundance of epic and perverse ideas rattling around in his head.
Dark Medieval Times Tracklist:
- Walk the Path of Sorrow
- Dark Medieval Times
- Min Hyllest Til Vinterland
- Into the Mighty Forest
- The Dark Castle in the Deep Forest
The Shadowthrone, SATYRICON‘s second album, showcased a huge evolutionary leap for its creators. Where the Norwegians’ debut had heralded the arrival of a furious new creative force, the second full-length was an act of consolidation and refinement, as Satyr truly blossomed as a composer of artful extremity.
Even in sonic terms, it stood apart from both tradition and trend, deftly encompassing both primitive, earthbound grit and a suffocating sense of otherworldly vastness.
The Shadowthrone Tracklist:
- Hvite Krists Død
- In the Mist by the Hills
- Woods to Eternity
- Dominions of Satyricon
- The King of the Shadowthrone
- I En Svart Kiste
