Powerwolf Checks in from the Studio; Details on New Album

From the band’s official Facebook Page:

Checking in from Gothenburg/Sweden, where we are about to lay final touches to the upcoming album at Studio Fredman.
Feels great to finalize this monster project that kept us breathless and busy for the past seven months, and I dare say it sounds absolutely amazing so far. This is going to be a damn catchy and intense album. Furious, epic, heavy & wolfish to the max!
Some more days of metal and mayhem ahead here in Sweden until we can send white smoke through the studio chimney… exiting times!
Can’t wait until this beast of an album gets unleashed upon you this summer…

Super Collider is the first release through leader Dave Mustaine’s new label, Tradecraft, after signing an exclusive worldwide deal with Universal Music Enterprises(UMe).

“It was a real thrill for us to learn there was an opportunity to join Universal,” said Mustaine during a break in the sessions. “It seems like every time you see a great band or music video, it comes from the Universal label. Being with Universal is by far the most exciting and prestigious home for Megadeth ever! We are electrified with what the future holds and the possibilities such a powerhouse like Universal will bring for us all. We have worked with some great people over the years, and it is amazing to see so many of them on the Universal team for our new record, Super Collider. If Megadeth being here isn’t satiating enough, having Tradecraft as my own label is going to be really amazing for metal bands around the world.”

Mustaine added, “Shawn, Chris and David have all been feverishly contributing some great music and I believe we are doing our best work ever together in the studio right now!
