Comments lead singer Hansi Kürsch:

Your wish is our command! So we have heeded the call, or in other words, we observed your many requests and wanted to oblige. Here it comes, today we proudly present you with our glorious, virtual Wacken live version of ‘Violent Shadows’ as a digital single. Enjoy this vicious ride and scream along with us. Stay tuned for more, and come to meet your violent shadows.
