Powerwolf have built a legacy since their inception in the European Heavy Metal scene and have continued to engage fans with new released like their current album Call of the Wild (2021). Now, following a 10th Anniversary re-issue of Blood Of The Saints last year, and in order to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of their second studio album Lupus Dei (2007), a special deluxe edition will be released on November 11th, 2022 via Metal Blade Records.
The special reissue includes demo bonus material as well as new front cover artwork by Zsofia Dankova. The reissue’s street date also matches the start date of Powerwolf’s comprehensive Wolfsnächte 2022 tour across Europe with Dragonforce and Warkings as support acts.
Powerwolf’s Matthew Greywolf comments in the liner notes for Lupus Dei (15th Anniversary Edition):
Wrapped in between the Latin Ave Maria in the intro, and the Pater Noster in the outro, this album probably was our most important one as for me it defined POWERWOLF. If “Return In Bloodred” was birth, this was the rite of passage.
Lupus Dei (15th Anniversary Edition) will be available in multiple limited deluxe editions such as:
-Gatefold 2LP (Clear w/ black smoke vinyl – 500x copies via EMP, Bloodred black marbled vinyl, 500x copies via Napalm Records and Clear grey-blue w/ black smoke vinyl, 300x copies via Powerwolf’s webshop)
-Gatefold LP (Black vinyl, Gold black melt vinyl – 500x copies, Silver black splatter vinyl – 500x copies, and Clear orange brown w/ black smoke vinyl – 300x copies) with Poster.
