Powerwolf release Fist By Fist (Sacralize Or Strike) featuring Trivium’s Matt Heafy
“It is a tremendous honour to be able to do my rendition of the fantastic Fist By Fist by the mighty Powerwolf,” enthuses Matt. “Powerwolf has been one of my favourite bands for ages, so this is a privilege of the highest caliber.”
The track is taken from Call Of The Wild’s exclusive bonus album Missa Cantorem, which also features an updated version of Demons Are A Girl’s Best Friend featuring Arch Enemy’s Alissa White-Gluz.

Matt’s new guest spot follows the release of Trivium’s surprise single, In The Court Of The Dragon, which was released last Friday.
Bassist Paolo Gregoletto explained: “We started putting together the riffs for what would become In The Court Of The Dragon last year with no touring on the horizon. We decided to use the uncertainty to our advantage and to create without any of the limitations and commitments that would normally be eating away at our time in the jam room.
“The title of the song came from a short story by Robert W. Chambers. The story is filled with dread and uncertainty, and that felt fitting for the times we’ve all been living in for the last year. Rather than a direct re-telling, we decided to go a different route and build our own narrative around the music that we were creating.
“Similar to some of our past songs and albums, this song began with lyrics rooted in mythology. But unlike the past, we decided to create our own myth to fit the music. Being free to create the story and write the music without a deadline, due to a once-in-a-lifetime event, really led to one of the most rewarding writing and recording experiences we have ever had. We hope it lives up to your expectations.”

One version of the Behemoth’s epic In Absentia Dei live album will come with a cardboard church you can burn down, because of course it does.
