Powerwolf debut Gary Moore cover

Powerwolf are premiering a lyric video for their cover of the Gary Moore classic Out In The Fields.

The Moore track is one of 10 covers of classic anthems from Judas Priest, Savatage, Black Sabbath and more featured on Metallum Nostrum, a bonus disc included with the 2CD mediabook and all limited editions of the group’s sixth album, Blessed & Possessed, due July 17 via Napalm Records.

Drummer Roel Van Helden says: “Like most of us, I began listening to metal when I was 11 years old. Later, I discovered Thin Lizzy, who – just like Iron Maiden – had a big influence on me. I still love to spin Gary Moore’s records while having a good glass of wine. Also, his blues phases were genius.”

Moore and Thin Lizzy frontman Phil Lynott originally released Out In The Fields in 1985. The song about religious turmoil in their native Ireland peaked at No. 3 on the Irish charts and No. 5 in the UK, along with Top 5 showings in Sweden and Norway.

The song is the third track previewed in advance of Blessed & Possessed, following Army Of The Night and Armata Strigoi.

Powerwolf will perform at a series of European festivals over the summer before launching an autumn tour in Pratteln, Switzerland on September 3. The trek includes a September 9 show at London’s 02 Academy Islington.
