Powerwolf's lupo-hagio-crypto-satano-sacro-groovy power metal of the night has carved a fun niche for the band. The "German Catholic werewolves thing," as a friend of mine describes it, has a pleasingly dramatic flair, with all its organ-scored singalongs and Attila Dorn's stunning, operatic charisma. That wasn't enough to stop Powerwolf from dipping into realms below their potential on recent releases, but The Sacrament Of Sin pulls them back to a level more befitting their talents.

Save maybe two songs, which even then weren't bad by any means, the whole album is incredible. Every song is catchy, memorable, and pure Powerwolf. What an effort.

Does anyone know if the bonus track "Midnight Madonna" is a parody of their song "Midnight Messiah" or is it a erm.... lone wolf?

Very similar to Judas Priest's Firepower in terms of enjoyability for me. Very good album.

THe fact that Heaven Shall Burn and Caliban did covers for them is weird.

I had a good laugh with the cover featuring the singer from Kreator.

IMHO that's precisely one of the strong points to consider Battle Beast a nice proposal into this genre (pop influences).

I will never understand why some people get bothered about the pop sound (even with the awful "artists" from nowadays). If that's used correctly, the results can go nicely.

Me to, its still good metal, pop sound us better as some modern extreme bands what can jump and scream and not get more as 50 ppl in a small local club.

I'll answer my own question as I've learnt to use my ears - original non-parody

Weakest album in a while. Demons are a girl's best friend & Incense And Iron are the only catchy songs.
