POWERWOLF To Enter Studio In January

German metallers POWERWOLF will enter Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden in January to begin recording their seventh studio album. Due in 2018 on Napalm Records, the follow-up to 2015's "Blessed & Possessed" will be produced by Jens Bogren, who has previously worked with KREATOR, DRAGONFORCE, SEPULTURA and PARADISE LOST, among others.

"It feels exciting and spurring to have one of our all-time fave producers working with us on this adventure," says guitarist Matthew Greywolf. "Can't wait to record a truly epic new chapter of the metal mass. Be forewarned!"

Greywolf told New Noise in a 2016 interview that the members of POWERWOLF "don't care about labels, such as power metal or whatever. We are a band that plays heavy metal, period. I've grown up listening to bands such as IRON MAIDEN, BLACK SABBATH, MERCYFUL FATE and SAVATAGE; I never wondered how to label those bands, since they were just great heavy metal bands for me, and I still see it that way."

Greywolf also talked about POWERWOLF's strong visual presentation in a live environment, which was captured on the "The Metal Mass Live" DVD and Blu-ray, released in July 2016 via Napalm Records.

"I love bands who deliver a great visual show on top of the music," he said. "To make that point clear, it's the music that matters most and comes first. We are a metal band, not a theater group. But if you take a look at those great shows, like what IRON MAIDEN delivered in the '80s and still deliver, it's obvious that a great metal shows needs to be supported by great visuals."
