Multinational metalheads POWERWOLF have issued the following update:
"All those who were at Saarstahl Metal Festival [on May 19] probably have recognized that the wolves had to perform without Stefane Funebre. Stefane has been brought to hospital on Wednesday evening [May 16] and it was impossible for him to play that show. Thanx to the unbelievable replacement drummer Mr. Tom Firespider we didn't have to cancel the show, and played an improvised set after just two short rehearsals together. Thanx to the fantastic audience and the many wolf-maniacs who were there it was a strange and chaotic, but great show anyway. We will keep you posted about Stefane's condition as soon as we have any news."
POWERWOLF's second album, "Lupus Dei", was released on May 4 in Germany/Austria/Switzerland and May 7 in the rest of Europe via Metal Blade Records. The CD was mixed at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden.
