Powerwolf honors Alice Cooper’s 75th birthday

Alice Cooper is inarguably one of the biggest names in the history of rock music. To honor his 75th birthday on February 4th, 2023, Powerwolf has released a cover version of his larger-than-life song “Poison”. The 1989 hit single from the legendary album “Trash” is an absolute evergreen and known by every rock and metal fan worldwide. Powerwolf pays tribute by adding their trademark sound to the song, without sacrificing the iconic structure of the original.

Powerwolf on the cover:

“Over the years we have released several cover songs to pay tribute to artists / bands that we personally hold in high regard. With “Poison”, Alice Cooper has created a timeless classic and we could not miss the opportunity to celebrate his 75th birthday (on February 4) with our own version.“

Powerwolf are undoubtedly one of the most celebrated and successful heavy metal bands of the last decade. Multiple #1 album chart entries, 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,the special album 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”.
