In April 2007, the German pagan metal band Wolfchant released “A Pagan Storm”, not only a classic in their own band history, but also a genre-defining cult album known far beyond the borders of Germany. With this second studio album, the still young band quickly became one of the spearheads of the scene and played shows all over the world.

As this milestone in the band’s history is more than 15 years old and has been sold out for years, the idea of reissuing the album together with the new label was an obvious one. But that’s not all: to bring the album into the present day, Wolfchant have taken it upon themselves to re-record the entire classic using today’s standards.

Today, the band is presenting a first taste of the newly recorded album in the form of the digital single of the title track “A Pagan Storm” and the accompanying video. The song is available on all major streaming platforms.

The band comments:

“The song “A Pagan Storm” from the album of the same name, was one of the most important for us, as it became a little “hit” when it was released and fans still enjoy listening to it today. Many people have told us that they found their way to Metal or Pagan/Viking Metal with this song. That’s why we are especially happy to present this song as the first single of the new recording.”

The new edition of “A Pagan Storm” will be released on August 16th as a 2CD version (with the original as a bonus CD) and digitally.
