See POWERWOLF storm the high seas in epic new music video

Second single from 'Wake Up the Wicked'

Coming off last month's wicked new song, "1589," Germany's Powerwolf are hitting the high seas. The power-metal veterans have just set sail with a scorchin' second single for their upcoming Wake Up the Wicked LP, which is an amped-up shanty dubbed "Sinners of the Seven Seas."

Sonically, the song gallops through jaunty, power-crunched melodies. As you can hear up above, vocalist Attila Dorn truly flexes a dramatic vibrato as he wades through biblical condemnation, conquistador adventuring, and a lil' dead tongue sermonizing.

The video lines up well with that, with half of the clip presenting a seabound voyage of holy figures and boatmen trying to save the soul of their captive. But things don't go according to plan once the full moon rises, leaving Powerwolf to sing the song in the watery wreckage.

Filmed across Switzerland and the south of France, and directed by Matteo Vdiva Fabbiani and Chiara Cerami, the "Sinners of the Seven Seas" video has a supremely cinematic feel. That makes sense, as a press release explains that the primary filming location "is a historical replica of a famous three-mast sailing ship from the fleet of Magellan's first circumnavigation of the world in the 16th century" that has in fact been used in several films.

Powerwolf's Wake Up the Wicked is due out July 26th via Napalm Records. As previously reported, the band will be supporting the album with an upcoming U.S. tour.
