There is no way around the most successful German band in modern heavy metal! Following the overwhelming success of their sold-out debut concerts in North America this past weekend, POWERWOLF returns with the impressive new studio track, “No Prayer At Midnight”. The new single is one of six brand new studio tracks on the upcoming special album, Interludium, which will be released on Good Friday.
The premier quality, cinematic official music video impresses once again with striking imagery and provides the perfect backdrop for “No Prayer At Midnight”. In a gloomy, sacral atmosphere, high priest Attila Dorn watches over his flock before sin awakens at midnight.
Watch the Official Music Video for “No Prayer At Midnight”:
POWERWOLF are undoubtedly one of the most celebrated and successful heavy metal bands of the last decade. Multiple #1 album chart entries, nine gold and platinum records, huge sold-out arena shows, as well as headline slots at the biggest festivals have paved their way. In less than 20 years of band history, POWERWOLF has made it to the very highest league of heavy metal.
Just in time for the highest Christian holiday, Easter 2023, another highlight of the band’s discography, Interludium, will be released on April 7, 2023. The new release features six new studio tracks, including the single “Sainted By The Storm”, which was already celebrated on the band’s exhilarating Wolfsnächte 2022 headline tour, as well as one of the most intense tracks in the band’s history, “My Will Be Done”. Interludium also features gems and rarities from the band’s history, such as “Midnight Madonna” and “Living On A Nightmare”.

The story of POWERWOLF, beginning in 2004, reads like a true fairytale, but is the result of the efforts of one of the most hard-working and entertaining live bands on the heavy metal planet.
POWERWOLF have secured a remarkable collection of gold and platinum awards, starting in 2015, when they reached Gold status for the first time in the Czech Republic with their album, Blessed & Possessed. Additionally, both Preachers Of The Night (2013) and the subsequent masterpiece The Sacrament Of Sin (2018), as well as the groundbreaking streaming event The Monumental Mass: A Cinematic Metal Event (2022), entered the German album and DVD charts at #1 – a massive achievement for an audio-visual release that stayed more than half a year (!) in the music video charts. The thrilling DVD, The Metal Mass, (2016) also secured the #1 spot on the German DVD charts. Most recently, the new studio album, Call Of The Wild, entered the album charts at #2 (and staying for 16 weeks in the charts) while the hit single “Dancing With The Dead” went gold and platinum. The Best Of album, Best Of The Blessed, released in 2020, also successfully entered the German charts at #2.
POWERWOLF achieved massive success as they headlined large venues with their phenomenal stage performances on the almost completely sold out Wolfsnächte headline tours (2019 & 2022), as well as numerous summer festival shows in which crowds were thrilled and completely captivated by the wolves and their unique, (un)holy metal mass. Beyond many others, they’ve also gained premium positions at huge festivals, such as Wacken, Hellfest, Graspop, Masters Of Rock or Summer Breeze. When POWERWOLF celebrates the new songs from the special album Interludium at the Easter Mass in Cologne, the whole world will be under the sign of the wolfpack again!
