POWERWOLF have released a new music video!

The new music video, for the track 1589, is taken from the German power metal band’s upcoming new album, Wake Up The Wicked, which is scheduled to be released in July this year, via Napalm Records.

The new song tells the story of Peter Stump, who lived near Cologne, Germany in the 16th Century and is known today as the Werewolf of Bedburg. After being defamed as a werewolf, the farmer confessed to several murders under torture, and was cruelly executed on 31st October 1589. This morbid story has fascinated people all over the world ever since and has been picked up by National Geographic, among others.

For the video for 1589, the band travelled to England to stage Stump‘s fate in the dark woods in a cinematic way. With carefully selected locations, countless actors and crew members and impressive special effects, it marks the most elaborate music video production in the band’s history to date.
