"We are the dark of the night
We are the sermon of fight
We bring the nightside, sacred & wild!"

Beware, the wolves are striking again! And they're doing it with sharpened fangs, piercing claws, bloody red eyes.

Im digging the titles in multiple languages, looks like German, Russian and Latin in addition to English, good stuff.

After finally getting over the gimmick factor of the band I'm getting really into their stuff, the gothic church organ/choirs style mixes very well with metal and the music actually holds up pretty well behind the make up and lyrics. They are Turbonegro of Metal, in a sense.

And this is released the same day as The Conjuring(film), gonna be a good day!

Excellent! Superb riffs, very musical and very good mixing - this album makes you want to sing along!

So far the best powermetal band of the year!

The album cover is really awesome, cudos to the artist!

EDIT: Listening a bit more to it, I lowered my score to a 9 because it's way too short, @ 42 minutes it's barely an album...

EDIT2: Lowered it to 8, a bit too much choir.

I can only find 1 other type of release and it's just orchestral versions of some songs.

Great album! Just like the previous two it has its highlights and has its fillers, though I find they get slightly better with every album and this is no exception. They are definitely pulling an Amon Amarth here and releasing very similar stuff to their previous but somehow I just cant get enough!

Are u out of your mind ?
What types of albums are you talking about ?? EP Album, Studio Album, Live Album....?
If you're talking about Studio Album, any recording longer than 30 mins is considered a Studio Album, sometimes 27-29 mins long recording may also scrape through as a Studio Album !!!

They're writing the songs as vampire werewolf priests. What did you expect?

Another good album by Powerwolf. The formula is the same... and it works. Compared to the previous record this one doesn't seem to have that many killer tracks, which is the reason why I gave it the lower rating.
Also lucky owners of the limited edition (including myself) may enjoy the orchestral versions of four songs, which sound pretty good and could easily be used for some Hollywood flick about werewolf priests. Nice idea, isn't it?

This brought be into band, and I have to say I was skeptic to this band, this is different, more power, less heavy and it sad, but also band changed lyrics, no more singing about St. ann and st.. annists , but now its more bible story
Not so good, every previous album was better

The beginning was pretty weak for me, but it picked up at the end.
