POWERWOLF
BLOOD OF THE SAINTS
METAL BLADE

German power metal mavens Powerwolf, who may have the most appropriate name for a power metal band ever, unleash an infectiously fist-pumping hell-raising poser-free metal experience on the squad’s fourth studio offering BLOOD OF THE SAINTS. Bursting with a vulgar display of histrionics (especially evident from the lead vocal performance of Attila Dorn) everything from dazzling guitar solos and volatile gang vocals to the commandeering use of organ works at full force here to create a Hessian atmosphere where axes and loincloths are optional. Veering towards the campy side of the metal realm with tongue firmly in cheek on tracks like “All We Need is Blood”, Powerwolf spreads the cheese without decreasing the fury, making an epic metal album in the process that fans of Manowar, Blind Guardian, and Helloween can sink their teeth into.
