Lupus Dei (Latin for Wolf of God) is the second full length studio album by German/Romanian power metal band Powerwolf. In addition to recording at Woodhouse Studios, Germany, the band recorded some parts of the album in an undisclosed 12th c. chapel. The band also used a 30-piece choir on the songs "In Blood We Trust" and "Lupus Dei".
- "Well, generally 'Lupus Dei' is focussed on parables taken out of the Bible and set in context to our passion for metal. Finally it had turned out being a real concept album with the wolf himself as the protagonist. In the Introduction to the album he loses faith in good and descends to the evil. He doesn't believe in anything but blood anymore ("In blood we trust") – but during the album he realizes the light of God step by step and finally in the title track he experiences God."
Famous quotes containing the word lupus:
“Regna regnis lupi, The State is a wolf unto the State. It is not a pessimistic lamentation like the old homo homini lupus [Man is a wolf to Man], but a positive creed and political ideal.”
—Johan Huizinga (18721945)
