Powerwolf is a German power metal/heavy metal band, formed by the brothers Charles and Matthew Greywolf, the band spent a lot of time doing nothing until they met up with a Romanian vocalist called Attila Dorn. Attila Dorn came from a classical background, when he met up with the Greywolf brothers he expressed an interest in metal and followed them back to Germany which is when Powerwolf took off.

The band released their first album in April 2005, entitled Return in Bloodred. In 2007 they release Lupus Dei and finally in 2009 they released Bible of the Beast.

Powerwolf were influenced by 1980's metal acts such as ozzy, Accept, Venom and Mercyful Fate.

They are signed to Metal Blade Records whom expressed an interest when they heard a German group was working with a Romanian classical singer to create a metal group.

The line up is as follows: Attila Dorn

POWERWOLF Blessed & Possessed

DippoMagoo
One thing’s for sure: Powerwolf knows what their fans want, and they’re certainly willing and able to deliver it time and time again. Ever since their incredible third album Bible of the Beast, these Germans have stuck to a specific formula, using elements of classic German power metal as their base, and adding their own unique flavor with the use of church organs and the epic vocals of Attila Dorn, to go with their always fun lyrics, which mix together werewolves, vampires and religion in imaginative ways. Over the course of three albums the band has perfected this formula, with each album making minor refinements to the same basic template. Going into their sixth and latest full length release, Blessed & Possessed, I was expecting more of the same, and that’s pretty much what I got. Thankfully in this case, more of the same is exactly what I was hoping for, and as always the wolves have unleashed a collection of incredibly addictive songs that are sure to please their existing fans, and to my ears this is possibly their best release to date.

Like with previous Powerwolf releases, Blessed & Possessed is pure power metal the whole way through, dominated by epic vocal melodies and killer riffs, and enhanced by their unique use of church organs in the place of keyboards, which adds a special sense of atmosphere to the music. Songs are mostly short, straight-forward, and filled with one epic hook after another, giving way to some truly fantastic choruses as always. I found that Preachers of the Night increased the tempo a lot more compared to its predecessors, and if anything this is even more true this time, as aside from three slower songs, the pace is often very fast and furious throughout, just as power metal should be. While some tracks bear strong similarities to previous Powerwolf songs, I find the performances all around are even stronger than ever, and it all sounds so energetic, that it was easy for me to forget the similarities and just become hopelessly addicted (it should be noted that the rather short 45 minute playing time allows for constant repeat listens, another recurring theme for the band..)

As always, Attila Dorn remains one of the best power metal singers in the world. There’s not much I can say about him that I haven’t before, but his distinct voice and the way he can so fluidly mix powerful metal vocals with epic classical vocals is truly amazing, and he’s always such a joy to listen to. His performance on this album is impressive, varied and as full of passion as always, and of course the vocal melodies once again give him plenty of chances to shine on every song. He honestly may be my favorite in the genre at this point, he’s that good.

At this point, it’s safe to say Powerwolf fans should know exactly what to expect from their album openers, and sure enough that’s exactly what Blessed & Possessed brings with its title track. Attila opens the album with an epic, extended chant, then all the instruments slowly kick in and from there the track takes off, sounding similar to the likes of “Sanctified With Dynamite” and “Amen & Attack”, and it manages to be every bit as impressive. A few tracks feel similar to previous tracks, but in most cases I find these newer tracks add that something extra that makes them even better. For example, the second track “Dead Until Dark” has an eerily similar melody to “Son of a Wolf” during its chorus, except that it’s played at a much quicker tempo, especially during the verses which sound closer to typical German power metal than the band often comes. Likewise, the closing track “Let There Be Night” is a slower track enhanced by orchestral elements, and it feels similar to “Last of the Living Dead”, except with a much a fuller, more epic sound, and with almost a full minute more of actual music, before the expected fade out to end the album. One more similar sounding track is the mid tempo track “We Are the Wild”, which sounds very similar to “Sacred & Wild”, though in this case I find the songs to be equally enjoyable.

Out of the remaining songs, my favorite is “Higher Than Heaven”, a song which accomplishes a lot during its short running time, making effective uses of tempo changes, constantly mixing up fast and mid tempo passages in a very fluid way, resulting in a song that stays fresh and exciting throughout, and it has quickly become one of my very favorite Powerwolf songs to date. The most unique song on the album is “Sacramental Sister”, a song that starts out slowly, with an awesome opening where the guitar tone sounds similar to classic Iron Maiden, and the track remains rather subdued but heavy throughout, until it suddenly picks up the pace towards the end and becomes another instant highlight. I’ve noticed slight similarities to Swedish band Sabaton in their music from time to time, and this is very noticeable on the tracks “Army of the Night” and “Christ & Combat”, though as always the church organ helps separate them from any other band.

Over the past few years, Powerwolf has proven that sometimes sticking to a specific sound and refining it from album can be very effective, and Blessed & Possessed is yet another fantastic album, where every song is instantly engaging likely to stick with me for a very long time. Fans of the band are sure to be pleased once again, while fans of epic power metal who have yet to hear the band are highly recommended to check this out, as it should make as great a starting point as any of their other albums starting with Bible of the Beast. Those unimpressed by previous releases aren’t likely to change their minds, but in this case that’s not a problem, because it’s clear the band is happy appealing to a specific crowd, and with albums as good as this and their previous three, I certainly can’t blame them for not wanting to make drastic changes.

Preachers of the Night (2013) is the fifth full-length by German power metal act Powerwolf. Despite this year marking ten years of the band it's fair to say that they're one of the current big name power metal acts I've never previously given the time of day. I'd heard their song We Drink Your Blood from their previous album Blood of the Saints (2011) but I have to honest although it was enjoyable enough I wasn't thrilled enough with it to pay any extra attention to them at the time. Fast-forward to the present day and yours truly has recently been provided with a promo copy of Preachers of the Night, so there's no better time really to wipe the slate clean and give the band a proper go.

The instant highlight of the music on Preachers of the Night is vocalist Attila Dorn. This man has a really powerful and varied voice. Able to sound both epic, almost to the point of being operatic, yet also sing with the aggressive edge that German power metal is known for. The opening pair of songs Amen & Attack and Secrets of the Sacristy are a great way for him to show off just what's he's capable of. They're also two of the very best on the album, so also show off just how catchy Powerwolf can be without going silly with the power metal cheese. Amen & Attack in particular quickly asserts itself as the most addictive straight up power metal song I've heard this year so far.

The music itself is more or less straight up melodic power metal throughout, with a few slower melodic heavy metal sections thrown in to vary things up a bit. Where the Powerwolf sound tends to differ though is that where you can hear keyboards being used it's not in the usual symphonic stuff, but well, it kind of sounds like church organ music, a feeling heightened by the band's use of choirs. This makes Powerwolf's brand of power metal have a darker sound than the norm, but without dropping the genre's epic, catchy and melodic qualities.

The songs themselves retain a high quality level, although the first third of the album is a lot stronger than anything than follows. It doesn't so much stall during the next few tracks but they don't make such a massive impact on me the way anything up to Sacred & Wild does. Getting towards the end the quality picks up again though with another pair of belters in the form of Lust For Blood and Extatum Et Oratum. Neither is of an Amen & Attack level of quality, as the first four songs are, but definitely serve to give the album that last gasp of life towards the end. Songs like Kreuzfeuer and In the Name of God (Deus Vult) that appear in the middle of the album are still quality work, but come across as filler in the grander scheme of things.

Overall though there is a lot more celebrate within Preachers of the Night. This isn't a perfect album by any means but it isn't hard to hear why Powerwolf are so highly regarded within the power metal circles. An exceptional grade rating is easily deserved.

89/100
