Guitarist Matthew Greywolf comments on the new single:
We are more than proud to present “Beast of Gévaudan”, the first song off our upcoming album, Call Of The Wild. The story behind the song couldn’t fit better into the world of Powerwolf: It’s about a mysterious beast that killed countless people in the south of France at the end of the 18th century. The beast was never caught and there have always been many legends surrounding the events, up to the interpretation of the clergy, who saw the beast as ‘God’s punishment’ or even as a ‘savior of mankind from the worldly and sinful existence.’
